IT WAS a fantastic night of entertainment as an entire parish and friends followed members of Carrickshock GAA to Hotel Kilkenny for hours of fun and fitness.

Called Carrickshock’s Fittest Team, a fund-raiser spearheaded by the larger than life GAA manager Davy Fitzgerald really hit the spot as 14 teams battled for honours in an at times uproarious atmosphere.

After a hectic battle it was guest team TJ Reid that won the fitness kings as a bumper crowd swelled a big purse that will help the club to pay for a second playing pitch for their extensive membership in children’s and  adults camogie and in hurling and Gaelic Football.
