The GAA’s Management Committee has today endorsed a decision to suspend all GAA Club games at all levels with immediate effect and until further notice.
The decision has been taken in the interest of public safety following a number of incidents that have been brought to our attention in recent days. In particular, post-match celebrations and a lack of social distancing at certain events have proved disappointing and problematic.
This directive applies to all ages and all grades across the island. Click below for full GAA statement.
Conahy Shamrocks are the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Junior Champions for 2020 following a 3-14 to 0-19 win over Dicksboro following extra time. Following last years disappointment at the county final stage Conahy Shamrocks have now achieved Intermediate status for 2021.

This Saturday UPMC plays host to the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Junior County Final between Conahy Shamrocks and Dicksboro, throw-in is at 3.30pm. Conahy Shamrocks will be hoping to claim the title following their disappoinment of last year while Dicksboro will be hoping for a win and add an Intermediate team to their stable of teams for 2021. The game will be live streamed via our steaming service and an e-ticket can be purchased here. A programme for the game will be available on this website on Saturday morning.
Once again we remind all our supporters that only a limited number of spectators are allowed at these games. In line with GAA guidelines masks should be worn by supporters where possible while attending games, for supporters attending games in UPMC Nowlan Park please adhere to the 4 seat, 2 row advice on social distancing. Failure to adhere fully to these directives could lead to delays/cancelation of our games. We thank you in advance.

The second Hurlers Co-op draw will take place on Tuesday Oct 13th.
On Sunday morning as the final preparations were being put in place for the St Canices Credit Union Senior County Final the sad news that Billy O'Dwyer has passed broke around the ground. Billy formerly of the Foulkstown Club in Kilkenny and more recently of the Faughs club in Dublin was the proud holder of two All-Ireland Senior medals with Kilkenny (1957/63) and three Leinster medals (1957/58 & 63).
All associated with Kilkenny GAA would like to extend our sympathies to Billy's wife Anne and his family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a ainm.
