Kilkenny Citroen Centre Minor Football League

Our Minor football team suffered their second defeat in the league at the hands of Thomastown in a wet St. Jame's Pk. Playing football in the heavy, muddy conditions was never going to be easy but credit to both sides, they put on a very good display. With Thomastown leading by a single point at half time, 1-2 to 1-1, it was all to play for in the second half but we failed to score in the second half and the game finished, Dicksboro 1-1 Thomastown 1-5.

Eucharistic Congress Bell

The honour of carrying the Eucharistic Congress Bell when it arrived at 7.30pm Mass at St. Canice's Church fell to Dicksboro GAA Club, which was represented by Colin Dempsey, Aidan Nolan, Edward Moylan and Thomas Kenny. The boys carried the Bell into and around the church and also assisted in the display of the icons. Their presence received a lot of praise from Fr. Murphy, Joe Malone and a number of parishioners as they went about their business with dignity.

Juvenile AGM

Dicksboro GAA Club’s Juvenile section had a very productive AGM in Palmerstown on last Friday night. The well attended meeting was addressed by the Juvenile Chairman, Pat Carroll, who outlined all the activities and successes on the field of play from our under 6’s to minor level during the year. Patsy Dempsey, our juvenile secretary then recounted the off field activities, from coaching courses, Lá na gClub, St. Patrick’s Day parade, Children’s Christmas party and numerous other events that help develop the children’s sporting and social skills. Great emphasis was placed on continuing to develop the family ethos that predominates in the club. The club treasurer, Seamus Rochford, who is in his fifteenth year in this position, detailed the club’s finances. Club chairman, Eddie Holohan, thanked all who helped in any way in making 2011 the success it was for the children, who are the backbone and future of the club. He acknowledged the sponsorship by Aut Even Hospital of the juvenile section and encouraged the members to support our sponsors. The meeting was then opened to the floor for AOB and a number of issues were discussed, including how best to further promote the playing of Gaelic Football. Dicksboro GAA Club has much to look forward to in 2012 and the structures and personnel are in place to ensure the continued enjoyment of our Gaelic games by our children.
