Kick Fada 2014
On Saturday the 13th september 2014, the All Ireland Kick Fada was held. Those that were there got to see the top GAA Kickers in the country up close. This was a year for the champions as both Men’s and Ladies winners made it three in a row. Serena Hannon won the Ladies with a kick of 48 meters. Once again we got to witness Damien Sheridan unbelievably match his record kick of 75 meters again beating a tough competition from all over the country. Our special thanks to President of the GAA Liam O’Neill as well as President of the Ladies Pat Quill and the President of the Wicklow GAA Peter Keogh who opened this year’s event. Speaking after the event Club Chairman Dermot O’Brien commented “I would like to thank, on behalf of the club, all the volunteers who made this day such a success. A rough estimate of numbers suggested that some 50 people gave assistance for the event. I obviously can't mention all but I would like to mention the co-ordinator of the Kick Fada, Liam McGraynor and PJ Cunningham, who acted as MC for the day. It certainly was a long day for them! There were many others who gave tirelessly such as all who organised matches and events for the various juvenile players, the catering team, the field team who organised the kicking, the set-up team who marked and set-up the pitch, the traffic management team, the organisers and those who manned the stands, all who cleaned up and dismantled the tents and props after the event. Thank you all most sincerely.
