Kilcullen GAA will be hosting the Kildare team who are set to face Westmeath in a challenge game on Saturday at 2pm, as both sides step up their preparations for the 2018 season. This game has been awarded to Kilcullen GAA so that the club can officially launch the new floodlights on the main pitch.
PRO Adam Timmons told KildareNow it will also be a way for the club to showcase to GAA fans from around the county the modern facilities, including new seating in the stand.
The lights will be officially switched on by local Finé Gael TD Martin Heydon at half time.
Mr Heydon was instrumental in Kilcullen GAA receiving a sports grant for the construction of new dugouts planne d for next season. Adam added; "It’s more great news for the club following on from the unprecedented success of our recent Lip Sync Challenge event as well as our Dinner Dance held earlier in the year!
"Not to mention our continued success on the pitch with many of our underage teams playing at the highest levels in the county, not just competing but winning! "Don’t forget to wear your Lily Whites (or black and white if your a Rags Supporter) to cheer on the Lillies up close and at home in Kilcullen against the Lake County!"
