Football Skills

In 1999 Kilmyshall won the Enniscorthy District, county and individual football skills.  The players names were Ultan Cowman, Timothy Farrell, David Reck, Patrick Skelton and Darren Kehoe. 

 In 2000 we won the Enniscorthy District Individual Two but lost the county.

 In 2001 we won the Enniscorthy District but lost the county. 

 We have done well in the past few years and we hope to well in the present year and coming years.  We now have players on the county team.  We think the skills are great practice for football.



Ann Atkinson and Tracy Nolan won the handball doubles in 1999.  They won the Under-13 and the Under-11.  Ultan Cowman, one of our past pupils went to Chicago to play handball and did very well.

Colm Kehoe 

Colm Kehoe is the youngest in his family.  He played on the U-12 hurling team and he went on to win Rackard Leagues in hurling and football in 1984 with Fr. Ryan and Michael Dee.

Colm was already a forward in his days and believes that this is one of the main reasons why he has become such a respected defender at county level.

 By the time Colm started in the F.C.J. Secondary School it was obvious that he was going to have a major influence on school teams.  He has the distinction of having worn the purple and gold at U-18, U-21 and senior.  He was also a much valued player in our famous 1996 All-Ireland win which was followed by a Leinster win in 1997.
