Return to Play
It was great to see the gates of the GAA grounds in Puckane being reopened last Wednesday for the return to action with our adult hurlers training. This week will see a full return to action across our Adult & Juvenile GAA Club along with the Camogie Club with a jam packed training schedule across both fields. Please be advised that all other facilities including dressing rooms and toilets will remain closed. All those present will be asked to abide by social distancing rules and have both the health questionnaire and e-learning module completed.
It is required that all those attending training will need to complete the Health Questionnaire online at returntoplay.gaa.ie. This needs to be completed before every training for the foreseeable future. Those who do not have it completed will not be permitted to train.
Covid-19 Online Learning
The GAA have launched the Covid-19 education E-learning module on-line to inform club members on the safe return to Gaelic Games guidelines.
This E-learning module MUST be completed by all team mentors,adult players, covid supervisors and parents/guardians of juvenile players BEFORE returning to play/train.
It takes about twenty minutes to complete and you will be issued with a certificate at the end which MUST be presented to the Covid Supervisor before returning to play/training
The module is available on the clubs social media pages or contact any club officer and they will be able to provide you with a link.

Kiladangan Team of the Century
As part of Danny Grace's & Seamus Hogan's book on the clubs history – a Kiladangan team of the centenary (1915-2015) was picked after Danny & Seamus consulted with a number of shrewd hurling judges. All those chosen on the team hurled with Tipperary at some level with the selection including 5 Senior All Ireland medal winners. It was decided to exclude the current players who are in the early stages of their careers.
We will be posting the full team on the clubs social medias pages with one player posted each day.

Shaun Hilmi Fundraiser
Nenagh Eire Og player Shaun Hilmi is set to to undergo six cycles of chemotherapy, surgery and possibly radium as part of his battle against Ewings Sarcoma Cancer. As part of a fundraising drive to help Shaun with his treatment, the GAA and the wider community has rallied around with a 30 second plank challenge proving to be very successful in raising funds and awareness and it was recently completed by our adult hurlers and camogie players. You can donate online at the Go Fund Me page set up for the cause.
The club wish to express sympathy to the friends and family of Kathleen Teefey (Ardcroney) who passed away recently – Kathleens husband Mick is a former Kiladangan senior club hurler.
The club also wish to express sympathy to the relatives and friends of Donal Bergin (Borris-in-Ossory) who passed away recently – Donal was a supporter of Kiladangan throughout the years. May they both rest in peace.
