Community spirit has always been the heart of Philipstown, from their first community hall in 1911 and the formation of the football club in 1948. To the latter years with our camogie club and ladies football and most recently our hurling section. As previously stated in our celebratory publication for the opening of our pitch in 1983 “The club is the community and the community is the club”. St. Kevin’s have undertaken previous ambitious projects but this fundraising effort is our biggest yet! With a new community centre built, we are fundraising to develop and expand the scope of the facilities and services that we can offer our current members, our future generations and the community at large.
Your support is key to this development and the “win a house” draw will be our main fundraiser as we look to bring this dream to fruition.
