There was something for everyone, from wellie throwing to hang the jersey competitions. Cross bar challenge, football golf, long jump and many more. Even local man Joe Kelly brought along his HorseShoes, which was on show on the day and he demonstrated how the game should be played.

The Killeigh Community Centre Development Chairperson Joe Walsh made a special presentation to the 2 captains of the Killeigh NS, Allianz Cumann na mBunscol county champions for both hurling and camogie, Jane Murray and David Murray.
The Committee would like to extend their thanks for the support they got on the day from a number of people, in particular, Killeigh Field committee for the use of Killeigh Gaa facility and their help and support on the day. Willie Grennan for the excellent job as DJ. Other sponsors on the day was Donohues Bakery, Ray Dunne and Pigs on the Green, Age Tek, Killeigh School Boys and Girls Club, Glenisk , Annaharvey Chauffeurs , Gareth's garden Furniture.
