The season has now ended for all teams on the playing field & it ended on a high with the u-16 girls being victorious in their play-off for runners-up in Division 1 against Seaview. The wind meant playing conditions were difficult for both teams & although Kilmore had the slight edge it looked the game was going to remain scoreless. With extra-time looming the ball broke in the box and Niamh Moore coolly slotted it home. This is the 3rd year on the trot most of the girls on this squad have picked up medals & after the u-10's & u-12's winning their leagues this season girls soccer in Kilmore is in a very strong position.
The presentation awards for the club are on the next Bank Holiday weekend, the men & women have theirs on the 3rd of June in Quigleys with Point Blank playing the tunes, kick-off is 9.30. The underage takes place in Mary Barrys Beer Garden on Sunday the 5th starting at 4pm.
Finally the club are holding an end of season draw, all proceeds will go into the fund which we hope in the near future will enable us buy the grounds. We are aware times are turbulent on the monies front, but we hope all could support our draw, there is no place like your own & when we get our own it will provide great benefit & enjoyment to all members of the community for many years to come.

Kilmore Scout group finished 5th overall in last Week's Campcraft Skills weekend hosted by Kilmore at Killag Show Field.It was a wonderful sight to see approx 130 young people and scouters enjoying the great outdoors. The team of Eimear Boyd PL, Michael Glynn APL, Peter Cole, Saoirse Hutton, Dafydd Bradfield and Karl Mooney were only a few points off making the top three which was a great achievement as half of the team were in their first year in Scout Section and there were only 6 on the team instead of 8. They also won the Camp Chef award making a chicken caserole and chocolate biscuit cake on an open fire.
As County Commissioner Dave McCann said at closing ceremony all the teams taking part were achievers and winners as they had the satisfaction of putting their learned skills into practice and enjoying the fun and friendship of meeting other scouts.
