A meeting has been arranged for Nowlan Park on Wednesday night next 14th Sept at 7.30 to discuss Feile 2017 . Kilkenny, in conjunction with Carlow and Wexford, will host the National Féile in 2017. It is very important that all clubs are represented at the meeting as it will be outlined to them what is expected to make the event a success. At a minimum each Bord na nÓg secretary should be in attendance but we encourage other officers to be present also. County chairman Ned Quinn will attend.
Kilkenny Order of Malta have been tremendous supporters of the GAA in Kilkenny both at Nowlan Park and in clubs throughout the County. They are presently fund-raising for a new base which is urgent for their continued operation in the county.
