Sponsor Our Sod

Kerrys Eye SOS1 9.4.18

These are very exciting times for Kilgarvan GAA. Adding on to past success in just the last three years our players have achieved tremendous success:

  • 1 Munster U-20 Football Championship Medal (Captain) 2018
  • 3 All Ireland Minor Football Championship Medals 2015, 2017
  • 3 Munster Minor Football Championship Medals 2014,2015,2017
  • 3 All Ireland Minor B Hurling Championship Medals 2014,2016
  • 11 County U21 Football Championship Medals with Kenmare District 2014,2017
  • 2 Kerry and Munster Intermediate Football Championship Medals 2016
  • Kilgarvan were South Kerry Senior Hurling Champions in 2016

We continue to have numerous players on County Hurling and Football Development Squads at underage.  Kilgarvan juvenile teams on our own or amalgamated with Tuosist in football or Kenmare in hurling (with the majority Kilgarvan players on both) have in the last three years won:

  • 4 County Hurling Leagues
  • 3 County Hurling Championships
  • 4 South Kerry Hurling Leagues
  • 4 County Football Leagues
  • 2 East Kerry Football Leagues
  • 1 County Football Championship Plate with Kenmare District 8 Kilgarvan players on team

These tremendous achievements culminated in being awarded

Joint winner of Coiste na nÓg Chiarrai Juvenile Club of the Year 2015 and 2016!

With hard-working club officers, totally dedicated and hugely committed mentors/coaches,  supportive parents and friends, great numbers of fantastic young boys and girls and talented and committed senior players it bodes very well for the future of our club but….

the club needs your help!

We need to upgrade our facilities! 

Development plans have been approved and finalised.  These include

  • Installation of Floodlights
  • Running Track Lighting
  • Refurbishment of the Running Track
  • Fencing
  • Installation of Dug Outs
  • Refurbishment of the existing dressing rooms

It is encouraging to see increased membership each year and new members are always welcome.  The installation of lights will ensure that training can continue for all ages over the winter months.

In addition our track will be available year round as we plan to continue our “Couch to 5K” program for both walkers and runners.   Also, in partnership with RTÉ’s Operation Transformation, our club will bring together our community to enjoy healthy walks in the safe, bright, environs of our GAA grounds.

The vision and hope for the future of Kilgarvan GAA Hurling & Football Club is to create an environment where all our community can benefit, in this generation and in the generations to come.  We are conscious of the positive impact of sport and social interaction has on an individual’s health and well being.

The development will cost approx €140,000.  We have been lucky to secure Sports Capital Grants of €66,000 and have already raised an additional €10,000.  In order to complete the  work we require additional financial support for the remaining balance of €64,000.

We are delighted to launch our Sponsor Our Sod campaign  –

There are 4 different Sods available to sponsor:

Platinum – €1,000                    Gold – €500

Silver – €250                            Bronze – €100

Each sponsor will receive a piece of “virtual Sod” – your name and address will be displayed on the Kilgarvan GAA website.   When all Sods are sponsored the names of all sponsors will be displayed on a plaque in our grounds.

Also any sponsorship over €250 will also trigger the Revenue’s Charitable Donation Scheme.
Through this scheme, if an individual makes a donation of over €250 in the year, the club can claim a refund of tax paid on that donation by the donor, or if a company makes a donation of over €250 in the year, the company can claim a tax deduction as if the donation was a trading expense.

We would like to invite all current and past club members, supporters, friends and anyone connected to Kilgarvan at home or away, to support our fundraising campaign.

Sponsoring is not just about making a donation; it’s about making a difference!
