Kiltale – Killyon Match Prediction | 16-08-2019

The Meath Chronicle described the Kiltale women as gallant in defeat and Marie-Clare Hickey was described as Kiltales hit-woman!! 1998Great fun was had in 1997, so much so that word got out about it and thus enticed a few new players in 1998 and a new trainer Peter Farrell (also of Grange stock). The team was as follows: Maura OLeary, Vanessa Gaughan, Carmel Reilly, Deirdre Dixon, Martina Walsh, Ann Gilsenan, Shirley Dixon, Caitriona OLeary, Donna Mc Gann, Marie-Claire Hickey, Freda Gilsenan, Evelyn OConnor, Patricia Gilsenan, Rebecca Rooney, Mary Gilsenan, Wendy Mc Cormack, Niamh Mc Groader, Donna Kane & Deirdre Cummings. In only the clubs 2nd year the girls managed to get to the county final where they were beaten by Navan OMahonys in the Junior Championship Final on a scoreline of 5-6 to 1-2.

After winning the Junior Championship two years in a row, the adult team played in the Senior Championship but alas found the going too tough for this young team. Tossie Byrne was team trainer and the team was: Sinead Smith, Deirdre Dixon, Donna Mc Gann, Niamh Mc Groader (Capt), Meave OReilly, Jane Wigglesworth, Marie-Clare Hickey, Carmel Reilly, Doireann Collins, Gillian Scott-Aiken, Jenny Rispin, Evelyn Dixon, Louise Byrne, Deborah Wigglesworth, Shirley Dixon, Ruth Ennis, Lisa Lynch, Patricia Gilsenan, Ann Gilsenan, Elizabeth Madden & Louise Donoghue. The format of the Championships in 2001 allowed the bottom teams to revert to the Junior Championship and Kiltale did not disappoint and duly obliged by beating Kilmessan in front of a large crowd in Dunsany to retain the Junior Championship for the 3rd year in a row.


The team had a good run in the Senior Championship beating Blackhall Gaels and Donaghmore-Ashbourne but failed to overcome Kilmessan & Killyon. The last game of the pre-lims was against Trim which proved to be a cracker but Trim managed to shade Kiltale. The Club welcomed Pat Kane on board as Senior trainer. Nevertheless the team reached the semi-final for the first time ever but our near neighbours defeated us once again.

theres no hope kildalkey will let alan douglas that much room he got against Longwood. Not a hope Kildalkey will beat trim by 15-20 points, the trim backs wont hold kildalkey forwards , Trim are not even a fit loking team. Prediction Kildalkey 3-18 Trim 0-10Kiltale will beat ratoath by about 5 points .

Hellas Verona is a much easier opponent on paper than the Diavolo and represents a good opportunity to pick up a much needed three points. Before last seasons debutants realized it, they were also three goals down and they naturally struggled to make any inroads. However, they will have an excellent chance to put that bad result behind them quickly as they again are playing at home, except this time its against a newly promoted side.

Getafe vs Sevilla PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 27/08/2017

Needless to say there was a fairly hot and heavy Club meeting after that fiasco!! Despite great effort by Pat Kane we failed to field in the semi-final (incredible but its true) due to a number of players being away on holidays and others out injured. 2005 saw the Senior team going through a period of transition with very low numbers of players.

OReilly; P. Ennis; C.Shirren, R. Ryan (0-1), J. Ryan; C. Garvey (0-2) F. Regan (0-8), B. McCabe. Subs used: J Cummins (0-1) for J Regan, M. McNally (1-0), S. Donoghue; R. Donnelly, P Donoghue, C. Ryan, S. McCabe (2-1). Ryan E. Kiltale: O. Regan; A. Durnin, S. Lenehan (0-1) for P. Durnin (0-1), P. Burke for R. Cummins for F.

There was no way Kiltale were letting it slip this time! When the opportunity came to claim the Meath Intermediate Championship title presented itself for the third successive year they grabbed the chance with both hands. The winning team was: Jane Walsh, Rebecca Mulligan, Elaine Reilly, Laurna Weldon, Emily Brennan, Fiona Madden, Alanna Madden, Louise Donoghue, Sheila Courtney, Andrea Pearle, Debra Wigglesworth (Captain 1-6), Jenny Rispin, Sinead Mc Groder (0-1), Louise Byrne (1-4), Donna Mc Gann (1-0). It was a totally dominant performance from Kitale with Debra Wigglesworth and Louise Byrne causing untold problems in defence whilst Louise Donoghue and Sheila Courtney dominated midfield and Fiona Madden marshalled her defence superbly. Again with TJ Kane and Tommy Cummins at the forefront they had ensured that silverware was comning home this time and were not in the mood for letting another chance slip. From the off it was obvious that they were the vastly superior side.

Killyon or Kiltale for Jubilee Cup ?

Injuries? Challenge games? Ratoath could be the big winners in this regard, though Kiltale building momentum quietly. All will surely benefit with they're respective football teams been knocked out of championship. Any news on the four teams competing this weekend? Trim will also hugely benefit with focusing on hurling and potentially causing a shock against Kildalkey although it's a big ask.

We won the U-14 Shield and U-16 Championship for the first time ever. The Club newsletter noted that the U-16 decider against Kilmessan saw one of the finest displays by any Kiltale team. The U-14s beat Naomh Padraig in the final and the day was made most memorable by Deborah Wigglesworth been awarded Most Valuable Player. Team trainer- Louise Byrne. Kiltale were represented in the U-12, U-14, U-16, Junior & Senior Championships. The team was : Jenny Rispin, Deborah Wigglesworth, Ruth Ennis, Evelyn Dixon, Jane Wigglesworth, Elaine Reilly (Capt), Meave OReilly, Doireann Collins, Susan Madden, Jenny Dunne, Sarah Bannon, Theresa Kane, Elizabeth Madden, Louise Donoghue, Sheila Courtney, Aoife Crone, Rachel OConnor, Alanna Madden, Andrea Pearle, Anna Conlon.

Four of the last Five Senior Football Championships have been won by two of our opponents in Group B, Simonstown Gaels (Last Year) & Navan O'Mahony's (2015, 2014, 2012). Colmcille's, along with our Neighbours Blackhall Gaels. In the Newly Sponsored Fairyhouse Steel SFC, Moynalvey were drawn against Seneschalstown in the 1st Round. The Draws for the 2017 Meath Club Football& Hurling Championship Draws took place at the March Monthly Meeting of The County Board in Dunganny last Night. Also in Group B are two teams Moynalvey faced in last year's Group Stages, the eventual 2016 Keegan Cup Winners Simonstown Gaels and Navan O'Mahony's whom we faced in last year's Opening Round, Group B is completed by last year's Meath & Leinster Intermediate Champions and All Ireland IntermediateClub Championship Runners UpSt.


Trainers were Grainne Harnan, Donna Mc Gann and Tossie Byrne. The team beat Newtownshandrum and Na Piarsigh in the Group stages and were very unlucky not to qualify to the semi-finals. The team was captained by Rebecca Mulligan. The Kiltale U-14s did us proud in the Feile na nGael in Cork. Our hosts Watergrasshill turned out to be our bogey team and it is unfortunate that we had to play them as soon as we got off the bus (perhaps we should have flown down!!).

The Lily Madden CupThe Madden Family kindly presented a Cup to the Club in memory of the late Lily Madden. The Cup is presented annually to a person deemed worthy of the title Club Person of the Year.

2000After tasting the sweet smell of victory the Kiltale women went for the double in 2000 under the watchful eye of Aidan Devlin with Tossie Byrne as selector. Marie-Clare Hickey one of the founding members captained the team to victory over Kilmessan. Louise Adams was lying in Navan Hospital on final day but needless to say the celebrations made there way from Trim to Navan Hospital and back to Warrenstown Arms! The team were: Carmel Reilly, Mary Smith, Evelyn Dixon, Ann Gilsenan, Patricia Gilsenan, Decorah Wigglesworth, Elizabeth Madden, Lisa Lynch, Donna Mc Gann, Caitriona OLeary, Niamh Mc Groader, Louise Donoghue, Regina Heslin, Sarah Bannon, Theresa Kane, Ann Fitzhenry, Deirdre Dixon, Jane Wigglesworth, Elaine Reilly, Meave OBrien, Meave OReilly, Marie-Clare Hickey & Sinead Smith.
