On Saturday our U12s travelled to Croke Park Museum for a tour. Afterwards the boys travelled to Abbotstown where they played St Peters, an imaligamated team from three North Dublin village clubs, Garristown, Naul & Ballyboughal.

Kelvin Tinnelly
Cross Rangers has very strong support in kingscourt, thanks to young kingscourt Stars player, Kelvin Tinnelly. Kevin and his Mum Ellen have been avid followers of the club for years. Unfortunately Kelvin has battled stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer since 2009 and  at one stage, Kelvin spent three years in Crumlin hospital. To mark ten years since Kelvin’s diagnosis, Kelvin and his family  are having a charity match on Monday 28th October which will be played in Raghallaigh Park, Kinsgcourt. An array of legends from the GAA world will be in attendance and and we are delighted that our very own, Oisin McConville will be one of those legends taking part. Kick off is at 3pm, admission is €10 and all proceeds will go to kingscourt & Nobber Cancer Support Group.
