Kilcock duo named on Kildare Minor panel for 2020

Kilcock Gaa will have two representatives on the 2020 Kildare Minor Football panel after Sean O’Sullivan and Shane Farrell were both named on the panel in the last week.

Both players were part of this years u16 panel, with Scoil Dara student Farrell captaining the side in the Gerry Reilly Cup. The highly rated midfielder, who can also play in the forwards, is sure to be an important cog in the wheel as the Lilywhites look to retain their Leinster Minor Championship title.

O’Sullivan, who attends Maynooth Post Primary School/ Community College and impressed from centre forward as the school beat St Benildus over the mid term, will also be looking to make a big impact in the white jersey over the next twelve months.

Both players are currently involved with the Kilcock u17s and were prominent as the boys in green and gold beat Sallins in the first round.
