GAA/Football League

The children have been engaging in lots of GAA again this term. County board coaches have been with us on Tuesdays and Jim and Jim have continued with weekly coaching on Thursdays.

Our lunchtime football league concluded this week with a day of finals held on Wednesday afternoon. All 6 teams contested a final on the day. Congratulations to all pupils from 3rd – 6th class who took part. The league was a great success and players showed good sportsmanship throughout. Well done to 6th class who were in charge of running the league. Huge congratulations to out overall winners Tyrone, who beat Donegal in the thrilling “A” Final. Jim Cooper and Jim Hanrahan were on hand to present medals at out assembly on Thursday.

Rackard League

The group stages of Rackard League have concluded. The Rackard League Camogie Team have been going extremely well to date, emerging from our group to earn a place in the top division. The girls put in a very strong performance to win comfortably against Horeswood on Thursday in the Roinn A quarter final. They will contest the semi-final after the Easter break. This is a great achievement for our girls. Congratulations to all involved and many thanks to Jim Cooper and Jim Hanrahan for giving up their time to coach this team alongside Ms. Duff.

The boys put in a great effort in the group stages of the Rackard League Hurling. Unfortunately, they did not qualify for quarter finals. Well done to all involved.

Thank you to all parents for getting the players to and from the games.

Well done to the Under 6’s Football Team who bet Bunclody and received an impressive trophy for their efforts. Well done to all involved.


G.A.A. resumes this term with thanks to Jim Cooper, Jim Hanrahan and Keith Murphy.


Congratulations to all the 5th and 6th class pupils who were part of the victorious Rackard League Football Team. The team defeated Oulart in the Enniscorthy District Final yesterday on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-2.

Padraig Waters (1-2) had a great game, getting vital scores in the first half when there was very little between the teams. Ryan Purcell used his height to his advantage at full forward, making things very difficult for the Oulart full back line.

Danny Fitzhenry was very influential at midfield, supplying great balls into the forwards. Dylan Purcell, David Nolan  and Noel Cowman were powerful in the backs throughout the 50 minutes. James Aylward was introduced towards the end and made his mark on the game.

Kiltealy players: Ryan Purcell, Padraig Waters, Danny Fitzhenry, David Nolan, Dylan Purcell, Noel Cowman, James Aylward, Jacques Neville and Cillian Hanrahan all made appearances on the team throughout the league campaign.

The team now go on to contest the county semi-final which will be played after the mid-term break.

Well done to the boys for getting this far in the league. We are very proud of their success and we will be out again in numbers to support them on their quest to the final.





GAA all the way!!!



Coaching continues weekly in Kiltealy N.S.


Rackard League Mini 7’s Girls Football Final Result ( Wednesday 15th April)

Our 5th & 6th class girls played their first Rackard League mini 7’s football final in St Patricks Park on Wednesday 15th April against Horeswood N.S. The girls as always , played their best and showed determination throughout the entire game. We were sadly defeated by Horeswood with a final score of 1-6 to 2 points. However the girls should be extremely proud of themselves as are we. There were 46 teams at the start of the Mini 7’s league and only 2 teams made it to the final , which is a tremendous achievement for both teams. The girls were presented with a silver medal for reaching the finals.

We would also like to thank all those who came to support the girls on the night.

Congratulations Girls – Excellent performance made an excellent game 😉

5th & 6th class girls played their neighbouring school Ballindaggin in the mini-7’s semi-final this afternoon in Coolree pitch. Both teams gave an absolutely fantastic performance from the very second the whistle blew to the extent that we had to go into extra time not once, but twice! In the last few minutes of the game Kiltealy managed to get 3 more points , making them the overall winners of today’s semi-final. Both teams should be extremely proud of themselves as they really portrayed high levels of skill and determination throughout the entire game.

We would like to thank all the parents, friends and classmates who came to cheer us on.

We are due to play Horeswood in the final after Easter, and will keep you all updated of the date and time.

This is a fantastic achievement for the girls and we hope they have a very well deserved break during the Easter holidays.
