With another fine day forecast for Saturday the Kilkenny GAA Race Day promises to be a very enjoyable day out for all the family.
We have an entry of over 50 participants in the under 12 and under 14 Long Puck competitions. Participants should check in to the Kilkenny Supporters Club Wagon at the Race Course before 2pm on Saturday. First rounds will take place near the old grand-stand at Parade Ring end of complex. Participant's parent/club coach should act as score-keeper. Under 16's have free admission to the day and clubs should have a supply of tickets for adults. Three qualifiers in each age group will play off in the final in front of Grand Stand between Races 4 and 5.
Thanks to all the clubs who supported this aspect of our Race Day - Enjoy the Day!
There was a very encouraging turn-out in Hotel Kilkenny last week of Club Officers from all over the county at the 1st session of the Club Leadership Programme.
The next module takes place this coming Monday night March 21st again at Hotel Kilkenny at 7.30pm.
There will be guest faciltators looking after the role of Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer and PRO. Because these sessions are Role Specific it should be a very worthwhile exercise especially for newly elected officers in our clubs. We encourage all officers to avail of this great opportunity.

This Sunday Kilkenny welcome Dublin to Nowlan Park for a top of the table clash. Both teams plus Waterford are on 6 points and all have qualified for the quarter-finals. What's at stake on Sunday is our likely opposition in the quarter-finals. If Kilkenny win they will most likely play Offaly or Wexford in the quarters whereas a loss to Dublin would put Kilkenny in 3rd place in the table and a tie against either Clare or Limerick. In any case it is a huge leap from this time last year as they faced up to Clare in a do or die game to retain Div 1A status.
Supporters are again reminded that construction work continues at Nowlan Park and the Terrace remains closed. All three seated stands will be open. Supporters are again encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to avail of €5 discount and to avoid queues on Sunday.
This game is not being covered live or deferred on TV.

Kilkenny GAA's 4th Annual Race Day takes place this Saturday March 19th at Gowran Park. This is one of our major fund-raisers for the Senior Players Training and Holiday Fund. A feature of this year's event will be the presence of Kilkenny All Ireland winning captains going back to 1963. Members of the current squad and the Liam Mc Carthy Cup will also be present. Last year an under 12 and under 14 Long Puck competition proved to be a tremendous success and will be repeated again this year. Weather forecast is excellent for the week so why not come out and enjoy a great Kilkenny GAA day out.
