St Malachy's High School, Castlewellan marks the 20th anniversary year of their annual Kieran McCrickard Cup. The Kieran McCrickard competition took place at the school on Friday 15th May. This competition is played in memory of Kieran McCrickard who, as a pupil at St Malachy’s, was fully committed to Gaelic games. He played hurling and football with a smile on his face and never missed a training session. As a Year 9 pupil he was part of the squad which won the first ever Ulster U-14 football title for St Malachy’s in March 1995. In November of the same year as a Year 10 pupil, preparing for a Down semi-final, he was tragically killed on his way home after a training session. This competition and cup presented by his family ensures that his name will always live on as an example and an inspiration to the young Gaels of St. Malachy’s High School. Well done to all of our students who took part and especially to those in the winning team, Leinster. A special thanks goes to Kevin McCrickard, Kieran's father, who always so generously gives of his time to present our students with their medals and trophy.

Ulster team played in yellow/gold

Munster team played in blue/navy

Leinster team played in green

Connacht team played in white
