Kildare Sports greatest weekend to date 2013-09-14th/15th

17th September 2013

September 14th/15th 2013 will go down in Kildare sporting history as one of the most successful weekends ever.

The girls led the way.

First it was Kilcullen women's soccer team beating Corrib Rangers 3-2 after extra time in the FAI Women's Junior Cup final at Newbridge Town.

Second it was the Kildare camogie team who defeated Laois 2:11 to 1:05 in the All Ireland Junior Camogie final at Croke Park.

As if two national titles were not enough, into the ring stepped Willie Donoghue from Athy boxing club. Two days before his 16th birthday, Willie beat Daniel Gonzalez of the USA in the 48kg final at the World Junior Boxing Championships in Kiev, Ukraine to bring the World gold medal home to Ireland, Kildare and Athy.

What a weekend!

Here is my picture of the three sets of champions.
