Delighted to say another five years of player record data has been added to the site covering the period from October 1954 to October 1959.
It was a period dominated by Kilcock and Round Towers in terms of county team call-ups with the likes of Paddy Gibbons, Larry McCormack and Noel Moran to the fore for Kilcock and the Loughlins, Ned Treacy and Seamus Aldridge featuring from Towers.
