Kilruane MacDonaghs News

Kilruane MacDonaghs take on Kiladangan in the Challenge Cup on this Saturday, 21st May in MacDonagh Park at 7.00pm.
The MacDonaghs juvenile and camogie clubs are holding their annual Clothes Collection this week. This is a painless way of raising much-needed finance for both clubs. Bags can be dropped into the Complex each day between 9.00am and 12 noon or brought to training in the evenings. All bags must be in the Complex by 11.00am on Saturday, 21st May. We had a tremendous response in previous years and we anticipate that supporters will rally to the cause once more.
The annual Cúl Camp will be held in MacDonagh Park, 4th-8th July. Last year 135 participants enjoyed a fun-filled week at the camp. Don’t miss out this year. You can register on line at www.kellogsculcamp.gaa.ie Application forms are also being distributed this week.
