Compass Club by Coillte After School Camps give children a foundation in outdoor skills and activity from the age of 6 to 12. Running one day a week (over 6 weeks), courses are available throughout the school year, so even if you miss one there’ll be another starting soon after.
And because kids love coming back to Compass Club, we keep things fresh and exciting by changing the activities around every term. But don’t worry, favourites like scavenger hunts, toasting marshmallows and energising games will always be part of the fun.

Kinsale Junior Ladies are Munster Champions!

After becoming County Junior Champions only a few weeks ago, Kinsale Ladies made their way through the Munster Championship defeating Austin Stacks and Dungarvan along the way. But in front of a huge crowd in Mallow yesterday they became Munster Champions in a very tough encounter against an excellent team from Drom–Broadford.

Drom-Broadford were first off the mark with an excellent point. It took Kinsale almost 6 minutes to get their first point which Orla Finn kicked superbly. Orla went onto kick 2 more before Drom-Broadford were to get on the score board again.  Captain fantastic Aisling Judge made crucial a penalty save on the 13th minute which would have put Drom-Broadford in front.  Orla, Faye Aherne and Sadhbh O Leary went on to kick points in the first half and Kinsale led 10 points to 3 at half time.

Drom-Broadford opened the second half very brightly and kicked 1-04 without reply to bring the score back to level pegging; 0-10 to 1-7. Sadhbh O Leary steadied the team and kicked a great point to put Kinsale back in front, followed by another point from Orla. The game ebbed and flowed with both teams kicking over points and with 10 minutes to go there was only 1 point between the teams with Kinsale just in the lead with the narrowest of margins. Kinsale managed to stay in the lead from this point with Loraine Copithorne playing a stormer in mid field and the backs Georgina Buckley, Christine Keohane, Caoimhe O Callaghan, Emma O Brien, Georgia Gould and Tracy McCarthy holding their positions and preventing the opposition from getting back on the score board. Orla Finn kicked the last 3 points and was deserved recipient of Player of the Match scoring an amazing 12 points out of a total of 17. The game finished Kinsale 0-17, Drom-Broadford 1-10.

Next up for Kinsale are the Connacht Champions in 4 weeks time.

Aisling Judge made an excellent speech and thanked the huge crowd for coming along to support them and thanked all the local businesses who have gotten behind them and decorated their businesses! Check out Kinsale GAA’s  Facebook page to see all the photos.

Scorers; Orla Finn 0-12, Sadhbh O Leary 0-3 and Faye Aherne 0-2.
