50th Running of the Kilmacud Football 7's Sponsored by our Club Sponsor Beacon Hospital
What a great day it turned out to be for the 50th running of the Kilmacud Football 7's sponsored by our club sponsor Beacon Hospital.
Twenty four teams took part in the group stages in our newly developed Páirc De Burca and Silverpark. Eight teams progressed down to the later stages in the afternoon in Páirc de Burca. Unfortunately both of our Kilmacud Crokes teams were knocked out in the group stages. After exciting quarter and semi-final’s we were treated to an even more exciting final, between Skryne and Mountbellew Moylough. Skryne won out by 2 points in a tense close contest - 2g 6pts to 10pts.
During the afternoon, we also presented Larry Ryan, our club patron, with a medal for his attendance at all 50 7's football tournaments. It was great to see Larry, Carmel, Emmet and Colette in attendance.
The closing stages of the Juvenile 7's tournament was also held before the senior final. Some photos of this tournament are posted in a separate article. These can be seen HERE
