Killeedy U6 and U8 players

Killeedy and Tournafulla teamed up in an U11 squad to play St Kiernans in Coolcappa last Sunday. Losing out by just one point wasn’t a bad start to our U11 campaign considering it was their first time playing as a team.







Killeedy played Adare In Raheenagh Last Thursday. It was a tough match, against an skilled team. Well done to all the Killeedy players who had a never give up attitude and worked hard on developing scores right to the final whistle.
