The annual Moira Cahill Blitz took place on Saturday, July 28, in Kickhams GAA field Dundrum. The day started with 22 juvenile teams marching into Kickham Park behind a bagpiper and around the field with a blaze of colour from all the clubs. 28 teams in total from all around Tipperary took part in games throughout the day. Kickhams had four teams taking part, these were; U8, two U10, and the Junior Ladies. We were successful in all grades, with Sinead Hayes captaining the u10 and Niamh Slattery winning captain accepting the Moira Cahill Cup from Mr. Padraig Cahill in the Junior Tournament. Thanks to all the clubs who came and supported our tournament, thanks also to all the parents who helped out in anyway with teas and sandwiches for the teams. A donation will be made in the near future to the South Tipperary Hospice from monies made from the teas etc. The night was well celebrated after with a Celebration Barbecue in the Venue, Dundrum House. A Big thank you to Brian Horgan who organised the signed Jersey an Hurley for our raffle also to Willie and Damien The Venue, Dj Butler of Butlers Centra, Ml Browne of Brownes Costcutters and Kieran and Michael Slattery for help with food and sponsorship. Thanks to all who made the Day and Night Entertainment such a huge success and well done to all!
