- Help Wanted For Match Days.
It has been brought to the Clubs attention that there is a reluctance by parents to get involved and help out with umpiring or to do linesman/woman on match evenings/days and especially when our own Club is playing at home.This is unfair on your child/children and on the Management team who cannot be expected to do this task. We are requesting parents from hereon, to make themselves available to do these jobs when asked by a member of the team management, and it is a tremendous way to become involved and encourage your child and the team.

- 2018 Gaelic 4 Teens Programme
Report by Colm Barrett Kilmeena LGFC were selected for the 2018 Gaelic 4 Teens programme which commenced at the end of February last. The programme is a participation-based initiative run over 8 weeks aimed at increasing the retention rate of teenage girls aged 15-17 years in clubs. It is essential to create a clear player pathway in every club and it is vital that all clubs invest time in recruiting and retaining teenage girls in their structures. Through the Gaelic4Teens initiative clubs are provided with a new and fun avenue to retain these players usually subject to an increased level of dropout. Just a brief overview the programme will work closely with coaches, influencing the content of their coaching sessions as well as establishing the best ways for coaches to communicate with their players. The programme will be monitored and evaluated to ensure that it achieves the aim of having a direct impact on the retention of players. As well as tailoring training sessions, there is a focus on education that will see star inter-county players Sharon Courtney (Monaghan), Cliodhna O’Connor (ex-Dublin), and Orlagh Farmer (Cork)assisted by William Harmon (Kerry)National Development Of provide expertise and advice to participants throughout the duration of the programme. The research that prompted the development of the Gaelic4Teens programme revealed that players play for enjoyment, to keep fit and healthy, to relieve stress and because their friends also play. The reasons highlighted for giving up the sport are that they don’t get enough playing time, there is no fun at training, that it is too competitive and that they are treated differently. The aims of the Gaelic4Teens Programme are - To increase the retention rates of teenage girls playing Ladies Gaelic football in a club. To provide a unique programme of Ladies Gaelic Football activities to attract girls aged 15-17 years. To educate coaches in relation to the needs and interests of teenage girls in sport. To develop athletic and social skills for girls in a safe and nurturing environment. Click here for images from the Gaelic 4 Teens event last Saturday the 12th May, courtesy of Colm Barrett.

- U16 Boys secure semi-final spot
U16 Boys Gaelic Football League – Division 2, Round 7. Tuesday 8th May, 2018 Kilmeena v Breaffy In this final round match, Kilmeena were away to Breaffy. Throw-in was set for 7pm and a win here would guarantee Kilmeena a semi-final spot in the division. Weather conditions were dry with a light breeze; providing an ideal evening for football. With Breaffy setting up defensively, good scoring opportunities were at a premium during the early stages of the game and the first quarter had elapsed before Ian Murphy got Kilmeena on the scoreboard. Breaffy responded soon afterwards with a point from a free. Round about the 20 minute mark, Kian Moore felt unwell and had to leave the field. His replacement, Harry Sheridan slotted in at full forward and it wasn’t long before he landed Kilmeena’s first goal. Kilmeena tapped on 4 further points and Breaffy 2 points to give a half time scoreline of 1 – 5 to 3 points in favour of the visitors. Kian Moore returned to the field of play for the second half and Kilmeena continued to press the Breaffy defence. A high looping ball into the Breaffy goal mouth area was fisted into the back of the net by Sean Prenty, to give the visitors a positive start to the second half. This was followed shortly afterwards by another major from the boot of Jason McGlynn. The Kilmeena lads were now cruising but Breaffy mounted a fightback and through a combination of scores from open play and a number of pointed frees, the home side were back to within 3 points of the visitors. It was then that the Kilmeena lads had to dig a little deeper - defending resolutely for the final 5 minutes of the contest. In the dying minutes of the contest, Kilmeena broke forward into the Breaffy half of the field, utilising excellent running play and a final pass to Sean Prenty; who blasted the ball to the Breaffy net, to seal the result for the visitors. So a good away win for Kilmeena. Next up – a Semi Final contest away to Bohola Moy Davitts, on Monday 14th May, 2018. The panel present this evening comprised of the following: Cathal Cawley, Ben Lennon, Adam Sheridan, Tom Smythe, Oisin Grimley, Ronan O’Donnell, Robbie Staunton, Mikey Hastings, Kian Moore, Mark Hastings, Jason McGlynn, Ian Murphy, Chris McNally, Cillian O’Grady, Sean Prenty, Daniel O’Malley, Jack Walsh, Harry Sheridan, Darragh Slattery.
