Senior Scór All Ireland final!

For the second year in a row, our Quiz team reached the All Ireland final.

Hopes were high after a strong showin in the Leinster finals, where they finished 2nd to the reigning champions, Offaly.

So....all roads led to Castlebar.

With Mary Byrne coming in as a strong substitute for the unavailable Andrew Cody, the team gave it their all. While not reaching the podium, they did the parish and county proud, finishing 7th in Ireland.

Maith sibh!

Baile an Mhuilinn abú ❤️💚

County Champions!!

Congratulations to our Senior Ladies who were crowned Kildare LGFA Junior B County Champions last Saturday (24th Sep 2022) in Hawkfield.

The girls saw off a spirited challenge from Two Mile House, with only 2 points separating them at half time. However, whatever was said at half time worked, as the girls put in a sensational first 10 minutes of the second half to put themselves into a commanding lead they never relinquished.

The victory added the championship crown to the league title won back in May, to give the girls a clean sweep.

Upwards and onward now to Junior A. And there's no reason we won't be celebrating a Junior A title this time next year.

Baile and Mhuilinn abú.


The 2022 Conlon Cup - 1st October 2022

The start of October saw the return of the Conlon Cup once again. And, once again, the weather gods smiled down on us, and we were blessed with a wonderful day.

Our U6-U8 footballers started off the day with a very entertaining display of football. At the same time on pitch 2, our U10-U13 hurlers and camógs played out a cracking exhibition match.

The main event started at midday, and 8 evenly balanced teams battled it out. Well done to the winning teams. The weather really made the day.

Thanks to all the committee for the hard work behind the scenes, and thanks to the Conlon family for being there to present medals and cups.

Maith sibh go léir.

U11 Hurlers Win in Kilkenny

Our U11 Milltown Sarsfields hurlers travelled to Kilkenny (Ballyragget) on Saturday (June 11th) for an inter-county blitz.

The tournament is extremely competitive and is invitational only.

Only ourselves and Naas from Kildare were invited to take part, with teams from Kilkenny (Ballyragget, Dicksboro), Carlow (Carlow Town), Wicklow (Éire Óg Greystones), Cork (Blackrock) and Offaly (St. Rynaghs) also invited.

Milltown Sarsfields got off to a great start with an 8-01 to 1-00 win over Greystones. They followed up that with a 5-02 to 0-01 win over our hosts Ballyragget, which certainly raised a few eyebrows. Our final match was a 3-01 to 0-01 win over Carlow Town, which meant we reached the semi finals as group winners.

The semi final turned into a derby, as we were up against Naas. It was a tough game, as expected, but our lads came out on top on a scoreline of 1-03 to 1-00. The final saw us face Offaly hurling powerhouse, St. Rynaghs. In a highscoring game, Milltown Sarsfields ran out 8-06 to 4-01 winners.

This was a huge achievement for our young hurlers. To go to Kilkenny and face some of the biggest hurling clubs in the country and win is a massive marker to lay down, and will serve these player well into the future. To be the best, you need to beat the best.

Maith sibh gach éinne.

U17 Boys - Division 1 Final

Our U17 boys suffered heartbreak by losing out to an injury time penalty in the Division 1 final.

It had been a brilliant match, with the lead exchanging hands several times throughout. Milltown got off to a blistering start with 1-02 on the board before Sarsfields got their first point.

As the clock stretched into injury time, Milltown were 1 point up and had one hand on the cup. However, it was not to be.

We are incredibly proud of the achievements of this team, so hold the heads high and keep the chests out lads!

Baile an Mhuilinn abú!

A huge thanks to our supporters who turned out to cheer the team on!

Senior Ladies Crowned Div 4 Champions

Congratulations to our Senior Ladies who have been crowned Div 4 League Champions after a well deserved victory over a good Kill side.

Senior Scór 2020 All Ireland Finalist Quiz Team

Noel Shannon, Mary Byrne, Ronan Byrne and Noel Dunne. Representing Milltown and Kildare in the COVID delayed 2020 All Ireland Senior Scór Quiz Final.

Well done to our Senior Scór Quiz Team on reaching the (much delayed) 2020 Senior Scór All Ireland final.

The team placed 5th in the final standings, being pipped by just 2 points for a podium finish. It's not a bad day when you're disappointed to finish 5th in Ireland. It was an excellent showing and gives real high hopes for further success in the near future.

A huge thank you and well done to the team of Mary Byrne, Ronan Byrne, Noel Dunne and Noel Shannon. And a special word of thanks and well done to Andrew Cody, who stepped in as a sub at the last minute in the Leinster final and worked with the team over the past 2 months to ensure they were in peak form for the final.

Milltown Take Gold in the 2021 Camán Chill Dara Awards

Monday 8th November 2021 was a proud day for the club as Chairperson Noel Dunne collected a Gold Camán Chill Dara Award from Uachtarán CLG, Larry McCarthy (along with County Chair, Mick Gorman and Kildare Hurling Chair, Colm Nolan).

This was the first year of the even, which seeks to drive and reward excellence in hurling in Kildare. Each club was required to submit a detailed entry, giving evidence of how they met or exceeded each of the 30+ criteria. Based on that, clubs were awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards. Milltown were one of only a handful of clubs who scooped the top award.

It's a testament to the hard work that has gone on over the past few years, but also to the way in which the club has embraced hurling.

We look forward to many more years of success.

Milltown Host U10s Hurling 7s Blitz

It was heartening to see our club full of hurlers on the morning of Saturday 6th Nov (2021). We had eight U9 and U10 teams in total...2 from each of Milltown, Rathangan, Kilcullen and St. Killians (Dublin).

Over 70 kids all our enjoying our ancient game.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped. To Fran, Arthur and Paul on great traffic Pauline and Anne Marie on the teas and Annabel and Shane on coordinating the refs and our refs, Brian, Shane, Joe and Pól.

But most of all to Patrick Keogh and Céire Cash on seeing the day through from inception to execution.

A number of the teams mentioned how well the day was organised. To me, it was a real meitheal, and showed how a small club all pulling together can achieve great things.

Round Towers v Milltown


The Division 5 final between Round Towers and Milltown was contested in very extreme weather conditions with howling wind and rain from start to finish and a huge congratulations must go to the players from both teams who managed to give us an end to end performance.

Round Towers opened the scoring in the first minute of play with a point from Leah Hayes. Milltown cancelled this out with a fine point from Chloe Byrne followed by a pointed free from Lara Curran. Conditions were difficult throughout the game and the first of 3 penalties awarded went Milltowns way and Lara Curran had no difficulty finding the back of the net. Milltown went on to score two more points from Anne Sweeney and Chloe Byrne to give them a comfortable lead. Hannah Wilson and Lisa O’Dwyer responded with points for Towers before Milltown responded with the games seconded goal, Chloe Byrne from play. 

The games 3rd goal went Towers way via Lisa O’Dwyer and this was followed by a point scored by Leah Hayes as they fought hard to get back into the game.

Milltown rallied and followed up with 1.02 with points from Curran and Byrne and captain Lisa Murphy with a goal from play. Both sides traded points again via Jackie Kelly for Towers and a pointed free from Chloe Byrne to bring the half to a close with Milltown leading 3-07 to Round Towers 1-05.

With a very strong crosswind and driving rain continuing in the second half Round Towers were again first off the mark with a great score from Jackie Kelly. Milltown replied with a point followed by a goal from play from Lara Curran. Jackie Kelly was working hard for Towers and scored 2 great points from play. The conditions on the day contributed greatly to the penalties being awarded and the next two scores were from penalties the first awarded to Milltown scored by Lara Curran and the second to Round Towers and scored by Lisa O’Dwyer.

Great credit must go to the Milltown goalkeeper Cliodhna Malone who denied Round Towers goals on several occasions. Milltown then responded with a point from Chloe Byrne before Hannah Wilson scored a great goal from play. Milltown’s Louise O’Doherty scored the next point before Chloe Downey who came on a a sub buried Round Towers chances with 2 quick goals sealing victory for Milltown.

The final score was Milltown 7-10 Round Towers 3-08

A huge thank you to the referee, lines-people, umpires, to all the supporters who came to support both teams in such horrendous weather and to the tremendous effort of both teams who despite the extremely difficult conditions gave it their all in a very entertaining match.

Scorers for Milltown:

Chloe Byrne 1-06, Lara Curran 3-02, Anne Sweeney 0-01, Louise O’Doherty 0-01, Lisa Murphy 1-00 and Chloe Downey 2-00

Scorers for Round Towers:

Hannah Wilson 1-01, Lisa O’Dwyer 2-01, Leah Hayes 0-02 and Jackie Kelly 0-04

Féile Final

Our U14 boys made history on Saturday 18th May, when they became the first Milltown team to ever contest a Féile A final. And the occasion certainly didn't get to these young men, as they put in a performance that put pride into the hearts of everyone with a connection to the club.

For much of the afternoon, it looked like we were going to do it, but ultimately, the spoils went to Naas.

However, in Milltown, it's still very much a case of Red Sashes, Proud Hearts.

Croke Park Trip

Our U8 hurlers and footballers made history on Sunday 14th April 2019 by playing side by side in Croke Park.

Both teams were paired up against fellow Shortgrass club, Cappagh, and both games proved to be entertaining affairs.

The excitement was building from early morning when the bus pulled up outside The Inn @ Milltown, and almost peaked when we drove through the Port Tunnel!!

Finally arriving at Croker, we claimed part of the Cusack Stand for Kildare and munched our way through lunch. Soon after it was time to tog off and pose for historic photos, and then in under the stand to the dressing rooms. The teams emerged to rapturous roars from the Milltown faithful to take their places on the pitches by the Hogan Stand.

From start to finish, it was a wonderful day, with children, parents and mentors alike all arriving back to Milltown smiling. Not many clubs the size of our could simultaneously field a hurling AND football team, so great credit sue to all involved. It was a proud day for our club.

Thanks to all the mentors for making the day happen, but special mention to Tony Colgan who really pulled everything together for us. Míle buíochas.

Girls Easter Football Camp

What a week at the Girls Easter Camp. It was all about Fun and there was plenty of that. All the girls had a great time. It was a great idea with the weather so good to have a water fight on our last day!!

Thanks to Nicola and Liz for organising and setting it up. Thanks to Cliodhna and Cian for their coaching and their assistants Chloe, Aaron, Ciara and Aoife.

Well done everyone.

All Ireland Final Journey

On Saturday 13th April 2019 in Castlebar, a team from Milltown did something that hadn't been done in 31 years - represented Kildare and Leinster in the Léiriú Scór All Ireland final!


It was a hugely proud day for the club, and while the ultimate honour did not fall our way, we can certainly look back on the year with much pleasure and a great sense of achievement, having captured that elusive Leinster title which had been absent for so long.


Credit to TG4 for live streaming the event so many of our parishioners could join in live. Now that we've had a taste of success, we're anxious for more, and already plans are afoot to go that 1 step further. Sure, who'd bet against us!

Milltown Muckers Fun Run / New Pitch Launch

Absolutely fantastic day on Saturday 9th Feb. 2019.

A massive thank you to all helpers and committee members and especially our 20 Captains who cajoled, begged and threatened 214 adults out into the muck and mayhem.

A lot of people gave time, but a special mention to Barney, Gavin and Eugene who contributed the time, but also machines, diesel and materials.


Its incredible that such a small community could generate over €21,000 from an event like this. The money that was raised was incredible and was a testament to your generosity.

However, the money wasn't even the greatest achievement on the day....that honour goes to the memories, the sense of community spirit and fun had by all.


It was a great day, and it was a day that our children will talk about, when their children are running around the new pitch.


Thank you again,

The Development Committee
