Ceann Creige – 2023

Ceann Creige…the season so far 2023!

An update from Liam, the club chairperson

With Kitty O’Shea’s proudly on our match day jerseys again for the 2023 season, some of our hurlers proudly represented Lancashire GAA in their league and championship campaign with the highlight being them reaching the Lory Meagher Final at Croke Park. Ultimately, they were narrowly defeated on the day but a successful outgoing for the Glasgow contingent of the Lancashire squad getting to play at the home of the GAA!

Our camogie team have fielded at Intermediate level and have faced teams from Liverpool. Manchester, Birmingham and London across the season having a varying degree of success but fun and comrade has remained. A strong building block and increasing number of players has been a strong success for 2023 with the team continuing to run various sessions from camogie to pickle ball!

Our hurling team have only played their league season to date and have qualified for the league final against Fullen Gaels in Manchester at Old Bedians on Saturday 9 September. They then face a tough championship campaign but after reaching the final last year, they hope they can build on last years success.

One constant for our adults teams is being able to have some drinks, food and chat at the home of their sponsors across Glasgow and Edinburgh in Kitty O’Shea’s whether that be celebrating a win, recharging a loss, catching up or watching live GAA (or other matches!)

The club is always recruiting new members, playing or not, so get in touch to join. They also run an underage section for juveniles so a family choice for all!

Front man of underground Perthshire based band, Parliamo, is a Kitty’s regular. Jack entertains the crowd solo as well as with his bandmate, Finn. He really takes our live music offering to the next level.
Sean is a Glasgow based singer/songwriter who has played in bars across Scotland, Ireland and Europe. A regular in Kitty’s, he changes up his song book according to the mood and the audience. Expect to hear everything from U2 to The Foo Fighters and even some Van Morrison & Depeche Mode.
A Kitty’s regular and known for his skills on the tin whistle. Catch him playing alongside Ciaran Cooney, Conor Markey and Marty McBride across all three of our pubs!

By now, Ray is one of the most experienced musicians on the Edinburgh circuit.

Sometimes called ‘a hairy jukebox’, he’ll guide you through a night of folk, country, rock, pop and shameless cheese, delivered while armed with his guitar, a strong cup of Barry’s tea and an even stronger Cork accent.

David Duffy is Glasgow-born and bred, and he may be one of the newest musicians to the Kitty’s crew but don’t let that sway your view.

David can play an array of instruments, from the drums to bass, piano, harmonica, mandolin, banjo and lapsteel oh and let’s not forget that he has been singing and playing the acoustic guitar for 35 years…And if you ever need an autoharp tuned in the dark, a drunk David Duffy is yer man!

Kitty’s regulars and favourites, Papa Shandy & The Drams, are a trio founded in 2012.

Renowned for their unique style of folk/traditional music, you will hear lead vocals & guitar by Kieran Sinclair backed by Gavin on the banjo and Tracey on the fiddle.

Andy is one of our longest running resident musicians. With over 20 years worth of gigs under his belt, you could say he was an accomplished musician in his own right, with many playing styles in his repertoire. His passion, however, lies in traditional Scottish folk songs and music.
