Cú Chulainns welcome Kilnbridge as new main club sponsor:

We are delighted to have agreed a partnership with a large successful company such as this.

CuChulainns will be representing Kilnbridge in the upcoming annual Berkley Homes Gaelic football Sevens tournament on the 6th of May on Greenford. We hope to continue our success after our team won the pre-tournament table quiz held recently. Our thanks especially to all of this goes to Mr Dermot McDermott as he gives us his fantastic support. His keen interest to help develop and continue GAA to the East and South East of London is noteworthy.

CuChulainns trip to Cork 8th April

CúChulainns hurling and football teams headed to Clonakilty in Cork on Saturday 8th April where we had a great weekend. We played friendlies in hurling vs O’ Donovan Rossa in Skibereen quickly followed up by a Football game just up the road vs Randal Og in Ballynacarriga near Dunmanway. We wish to thank both clubs for their hospitality and great welcome afforded to us. It was great to see some old friends and family who came down to cheer us on and take part in our weekend.
This trip was part of our yearlong celebration of 2017 being our 85th year in existence since the clubs founding in 1932.
