WICKLOW CUP CHAMPIONS 2019.
Sunday, June 2, will be a day that will stick in the memory of everyone in Kilmacanogue as it was the day that Glencormac United won their first ever Wicklow Cup Final in their 45-year-old history.
A fantastic crowd from Kilmacanogue made their way to the Carlisle Grounds to see history been made and the club is indebted to you all for the fantastic support.
The Glens took the lead through a fantastic Sam O’Callaghan Freekick and doubled that lead by halftime when Nay Watters forced home a corner. However, Rathnew are renowned for never giving up and hit back early at late in the second half to force extra time.
This was when the Glens regained control and Ben O’Callaghan scored in the first period before Josh O’Callaghan rapped it up with the clock ticking down and the cup was heading back to Kilmacanogue. Congratulations to this great young team who are a credit to the club.
Big thanks also to Richie and Phily Berns of U Value Foam Insulation for one again sponsoring the club tops for the final.
Thanks to Caroline and Shane McNamara and the staff of Plucks for all their efforts and club decorations which gives everyone a great boost when you see the effort put in and also for filling the cup on numerous occasions on Sunday night.
Finally, a massive thank you to all the clubs young superstars who roared on their hero’s on the day and with so many brilliant young footballers in the club, it wont be long before they will be playing on the team and winning more Wicklow Cups.

The senior team staged another fantastic second half comeback last Friday night when they turned a five points to 07 points halftime deficit into a 14 points to 1-09 victory over Dunlavin. The highlight of the game had to be four points from Luke O’Callaghan, a young man that we normally have to put a Tracking device on in case he strays over the halfway line. Well done lads, great victory.
