Day 1: First up we want to see your spectacular solos. Complete 40 on your weaker foot, 50 on your strong foot.

Day 2: It’s time for a new Skills Challenge. Big thank you to Jamie and Charlie for helping to demonstrate today’s skill.-15 high catches in row, extend arms fully over your head to catch the ball

– Ensure ball is pulled into your tummy.

Day 3: Today we are focusing on your kicking and target practice. We are also mixing things up a bit by taking you from your back garden, to your driveways or another open space. Who can kick a ball into their car boot? Continue reading

Kildare Nationalist team of the Century

Great to see Daryl Flynn & Ronan Sweeney named on the Kildare Nationalist team of the century.

Two great servants to Kildare GAA

Team of the Century

 

8. DARYL FLYNN (MOOREFIELD)

We picked Kevin Feely and Fergal Conway as the midfielders on our team of the decade but when we get to include the 2009 season then Flynn just about gets nod over that excellent pair. It’s often joked around Newbridge that it was Flynn who won the 2009 All-Star award for Dermot Earley and often a true word is spoken in jest. Not was Earley wasn’t brilliant in that year, more on him shortly, but there was a perfect balance in their partnership as Earley enjoyed his Indian summer. Another player who had no thoughts of making headlines, his only job was to give the protection to the defence to allow other players pour forward. There was hardly a better midfield partnership in the country than him and Earley in 2009 and into 2010. After Earley’s injury in the 2010 All-Ireland quarter-final pretty much the last player that Kildare wanted to see pick up an injury in the semi-final against Down was Flynn and we could only wonder what might have happened had he stayed on the field for that game.

 

12. RONAN SWEENEY (MOOREFIELD)

Some very tough competition for this position with James Kavanagh and Eoghan O’Flaherty very unlucky to miss out but we’ve given our number 12 jersey to Sweeney. It could be argued that he never quite hit the heights in a white jersey that he did for his club but he was a real leader of men. Won a Leinster title in his debut season in 2000 and went on to make 127 League and Championship appearances for Kildare, scoring 10-61. A very consistent performer, he had a brilliant season in 2009 when he scored 1-7 in six Championship games. Also spent time as a selector under Cian O’Neill.
