An interesting statistic in Avondhu GAA is that no club has won the divisional JAHC title three times in succession. Kilworth lost the JAHC final of 2004 to Ballygiblin 0-14 to 2-6. They came back in 2005, defeating Clyda Rovers 4-17 to 1-12, before going to the county final where they were beaten by Fr O’Neill’s.
In the end, Kilworth, captained by goalkeeper Kieran Walsh, were crowned JAHC winners: 0-13 to 0-12. County minor Adrian Mannix was awarded Man of the Match.
Kilworth played Fenor in the Munster club semi-final before beating Tipp’s Knockshegowna in the provincial final. In 2012 Kilworth won the IHC and reached the Premier IHC final in 2019 where they lost out to Fr O’Neill’s.
