5k/10k Fun Run in aid of Michael Mullan Cancer Fund

posted 18 Jun 2018, 15:44 by Kildangan PRO

A 5k/10k Fun Run will take place in Punchestown Racecourse on Saturday, 21st July at 11.00am with all proceeds going to the Michael Mullan Cancer Fund.
The run will be chipped and timed by Pop Up Races. It is €15 for the 5k run, and €20 for the 10k run. All kids under 12 go free (with an accompanying adult). Online registration will open soon, so keep an eye on our Facebook page & event.

Michael (Mick) is 26 years old from Eadestown Co. Kildare and is battling cancer for the third time. Michael is currently undergoing treatment in Boston as there is no treatment options available for him in Ireland. This event has been organised to raise much needed funds to help cover his medical expenses. If you would like to learn more, click here to read article written by Michael himself about his journey so far.

Mick has always dedicated his time to helping others. He helped organise Kildare’s Relay for Life which raised €30,000. Mick often visited St John’s cancer ward in Crumlin, where he was treated as a baby, with presents for the patients. He has also volunteered with the Irish Teenage Cancer Trust, Harvard’s Disability Project, assisted victims of crimes in court, and helped out with Best Buddies. Michael has dedicated his personal and professional life to helping those most vulnerable in society. Now it’s our turn to come together and help Michael beat cancer for the third time!

You can donate to this very worthy cause here.

Night at the Dogs A Great Success!

posted 18 Jun 2018, 14:13 by Kildangan PRO

We held a very well attended Night at the Dogs in Newbridge Greyhound Stadium last Friday night. We would like to say thank you to everyone who travelled over and hope you had a very enjoyable evening.

Of course, these nights cannot go ahead without a lot of planning, work and support. We are very grateful to our race sponsors, and those who took out advertisements in the race card, all of whom are mentioned below. As always, we would ask that our members continue to show their support to these local businesses.

Our committee put in a big effort in making sure the night was a success. Special mention goes to Liam and Noreen O'Donovan for their expertise in organising the event, as well as our secretary Michael Higgins who was on photography duty. Nora O'Donovan and Mary Cullen were also on hand with their cameras, and you can see a selection of photographs from the night below. Our senior team also did their best to sell as many tickets as possible, and a
number of our committee members also sold raffle tickets on the evening for a 32-inch Smart TV.

We could have done this without the help of all of you!

Seniors' Semi-Final Quest Stopped By Ballyteague

posted 31 May 2018, 15:26 by Kildangan PRO

Our senior team travelled just beyond the village of Kilmeague with aspirations of reaching a league semi-final against Kilcullen on Wednesday evening to face a gutsy Ballyteague side with similar ambitions. The home side had just come off the back of a nine point win over Clogherinkoe, who had been undefeated in Division 3B until then, so it was never going to be an easy task for Kildangan.

Kildangan started the better of the two sides with Kevin Christie winning the break, which was followed by a goal within a minute following a superb run. A foul on Paul Connaughton led to a free from Ryan Moran, who extended the lead to four. Ballyteague battled back into it from here with a two points from their full forward, and a goal from left half forward to edge out the visitors midway through the half.

One of his colleagues added to this three minutes later, before the left corner forward added goal number two for the Larks. A powerful shot led to a chance for a third goal came within a minute of the previous, but luckily for Kildangan, the ball rocketed off the right post. With two minutes of the half to go, a superb '45 from Robert McGrath made it over the bar. This was to be the last score of the half, with Kildangan trailing by five.

Four points within six minutes of the restart for the Greens meant that we only trailed by a single point. From here, Ballyteague went on to score two points through frees and a point from play before hitting the back of the net once again. Another two points extended the home team's lead even further with only seven minutes to go, Damien Broughall and Ryan Moran narrowed the gap slightly with a point each, the latter from an injury time free, but the game was well beyond Kildangan's reach at this stage, as the Larks ran out 3-9 to 1-8 winners.

Despite the scoreline, Kildangan did put in some great individual performances. Kevin Christie fielded the ball particularly well and was awarded a number of marks as a result, and our younger players stood up to the plate yet again. With over twenty players togged out for the game, the signs are good as competition for places keeps each player on their toes.

There is a small break from competitive football for now. A number of challenge games are due to take place in the coming weeks in preparation for the Championship, which is likely to start in the middle of July. Full details will be posted here as soon as they become available

Kildangan: John Miller; Conor Mulholland, Jordan Kaye, Luke Barry; Kevin Christie, Bryan Adams, Robert McGrath; Damien Broughall; Paul Connaughton, Phillip Ryan, Stephen Keogh; Dermot Hickey, Eric O'Hara, Ryan Moran
Substitutes: Andrew Wilson, Richard Morgan, Daniel Cawley, Darragh Kennedy.
