Injury-Hit Tones Fall to a Very Accurate Eglish

April 22nd, 2018 | Uncategorized

An injury-weakened Kildress were always on the back foot at Eglish today and had the added misfortune to come up against a team which in the first half simply didn’t know how to miss. Apart from a few heroic Kildress block-downs, Eglish’s first 11 attempts at scoring, from all distances and all angles, all sailed […]

Kildress Fall at The Blackwater

April 14th, 2018 | Uncategorized

Sometimes a ‘16-scores-to-14-scores’ game is a close-run thing but that certainly wasn’t the case here as Aghaloo simply blasted Kildress away by 4-12 to 0-14 on the banks of The Blackwater on Saturday evening. Maybe the Tones’ two tight opening games took too much out of them because at no stage were they in this […]

Kildress’ Good Run Against Cookstown Continues

April 9th, 2018 | Uncategorized

A week ago Kildress chipped back a big lead to edge home by a point against Owen Roes but on Sunday they ran up an early big lead against Cookstown and in the end just hung on for another one-point victory, this time by 2-10 to 0-15. A Kildress blitz dominated the game’s opening twenty […]

Tús an-Mhaith … Flying Start!

March 31st, 2018 | Uncategorized

Kildress will be delighted with this marginal but for long seemingly totally unlikely 0-15 to 3-5 victory over a very well-supported Owen Roes at Gortacladdy. This was a hugely entertaining encounter, a game with a bit of everything – three brilliantly-finished Owen Roes goals, a red card for Kildress, a wonderful battle between Dean McNally […]

Miotais a Bhréagnú/Debunking the Myth

March 22nd, 2018 | Uncategorized

It’s one of the great but very dangerous GAA myths that’s peddled in certain quarters: “Nobody should be out of pocket because of their involvement in Gaelic games.” Not only is it not true but the opposite is true … Gaelic games only survive because plenty of people are willing to be out of pocket […]

Tones Just Fall Short

September 24th, 2017 | Uncategorized

Kildress just came up short by 0-9 to 0-11 in a gripping Championship Quarter-Final with neighbours Gortin, in the wonderful match setting of Loughmacrory on Saturday. The Tones had to play with 14 men for two-thirds of this game but, in the last quarter especially, did enough to deserve at least another day. A well-drilled […]

Strong Second-Half Secures Tones’ Division II Status

August 20th, 2017 | Uncategorized

Late concessions of scores had cost Kildress dearly in a number of games this year but there was no chance of that happening at a chilly but very well attended Gortacladdy this evening as a very strong second half showing saw the Tones comfortably account for fellow-strugglers Cookstown by 1-9 to 0-4. This was a […]
