A GAA club that is the key social focal point for a small village and surrounding area in Co. Wicklow.
Project: Kiltegan GAA
Location: Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow
Kiltegan GAA club was founded in 1929 and is located in Kiltegan, a village of approximately 700 inhabitants located close to the Carlow border in South West Wicklow. Like many rural villages the Club acts as a social hub for its local inhabitants.
The club fields teams in ladies Gaelic football and camogie (Kiltegan GAA) and a junior section (Michael Dwyer’s, a combination of Kiltegan with 2 other small clubs in the area, Ballymanus & Knockananna).
They successfully applied for social finance with Community Finance Ireland, finding the missing piece they needed to complete the construction of a new astro pitch.
“Barry made the process really simple. His communication was excellent. We knew within ten days that our application had been successful.“
Paula Boland, Secretary Kiltegan GAC
