Three championship winning teams feted, senior campaign gets off to a good start, under 12’s hit road to Belfast and club stalwart honoured – the principal features of a weather affected but still busy weekend. On top of this work continues apace on the Hurling Arena in Glanalbyn and Punchestown
During 2006 there were many Kilmacud Crokes Hurling highlights, on and off the field:

Highlight of the weekend was the fantastic win for the under 16A’s in the Dublin County Championship Final over neighbours Ballyboden St Endas by 1-9 to 1-8. Crokes led by 1-6 to 0-3 at half time but Boden forced their way back into the game and were a point to the good with nine minutes to go.

Weekend 23-24 September
One trophy, one final and three semi-finals made. Not a bad outcome for one weekend.
