Kilbrittain GAA on TG4
On this Sunday 15th September, TG4 will be in the parish to film an episode of ‘Go Gasta’, a show that challenges two neighbouring GAA clubs against each other in a Fun Adventure race. The show will be aired from October to November on TG4. Kilbrittain’s team will race to Ballinspittle GAA pitch in the morning from 9am, starting at the community pitch. There will be obstacles at various points along the route. Courcey Rovers team will then race back the same route in the afternoon, finishing in Kilbrittain community pitch at around 4;30-5pm. We are encouraging the people of the parish to come out and support the team at the start and at the finish and along the route. The route will be publicized locally and on the GAA facebook page. The fastest time will be the winner and the winning team will be announced at the end of the day. We will host a BBQ at the finish and all are welcome! This is a great opportunity to showcase the parish and the village and the community spirit to a wider TV audience. Please come out and support the team!

Kilbrittain Foroige
Kilbrittain Foroige Club returns after the summer break on Friday the 20th of September, at 9.30 pm, in The Parish Hall, with registration of existing and new members from 2nd year up. We will also take expressions of interest from 1st years who will be placed on a waiting list, and will be contacted if places become available later this year or at registration time next year.
As places are limited, we ask all those interested in joining the club for the coming year to attend on the night. A Parent/Guardian must attend on the night with your child. The membership fee of €30 per member or €40 per family will also be collected on the night. This money goes directly to National HQ.
The club cannot function without the help of parents. Under new requirements of the Child Protection Laws, all helping parents must be Garda vetted. To facilitate this, we are asking parents to bring at least two forms (and ideally more) of strong photographic IDs, and separate proofs of address on the night.  Strong IDs would include passports, photographic Public Services Card, credit card, Drivers Licence and home utility bills.  Other forms of ID (e.g. old style drivers licence, other letters confirming address) may also be acceptable if three or four forms are presented – we can check them against the National Vetting scoring system to see if the combination of ID’s is acceptable or not.  Full details, including the scoring system and acceptable forms of ID, are available on the Kilbrittain Foroige Facebook page.  Please ring or text Ted at 087/6329290 for further information or any query about suitable forms for vetting. If you were successfully vetted last year then you do not require to be vetted this year.
