KELLS ROAD DRAW: The April and final monthly draw takes place on Wednesday night next, 29th April. As promoters will know by now, the draw committee led by Elsie Cody and Pat Millea has issued invitations "to join them for a celebration on the occasion of the 60th and final draw" in the clubrooms to mark the end of a hugely successful fundraiser, which has largely paid for the club's wonderful new facility on the Kells Road. In the short time span since the facility was formally opened by former Uachtarain C.L.G., Liam O'Neill, on 16th May 2014, the playing fields have been used for Kilkenny senior championship fixtures, Kilkenny senior county team training, Leinster College's fixtures, and, recently, a county wide go-games blitz involving 24 club teams, various Kilkenny development squad sessions, camogie fixtures as well as the multiplicity of club under age training and coaching gatherings. However, it must be stated that despite the many "ups and downs" encountered by the Development committee in the seven years it has taken to complete the project, since the site was purchased in October 2007, the five field development and dressing-room complex is now firmly in place to secure the long term future of the James Stephens club -- a fact that the St. Patrick's parish community can be proud of thanks to the loyal support it has given to the draw over the last five years. Thanks again to all who supported the project.
CLUB BLAZER / TIES: In the next few weeks a new club blazer (dark green with club crest) and new club ties will become available for members. Cost will be approx. .€200 for blazer and €20 for tie. If any member wishes to order one, please contact Chairman or Secretary.
