Mullinahone-CJ Kickhams GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association located in Mullinahone, south County Tipperary, Ireland, close to the border with County Kilkenny. The Mullinahone Club is named in honour of Charles J. Kickham, "Poet and Patriot", who was born in the village.

Honours[edit]

The Kickhams Club has, for most of its existence - spanning over 120 years - been a traditional Gaelic football club, winning many county senior football championships in the early part of the 20th century. Hurling enjoyed a resurgence in the 1990s, culminating with victory in the County Senior Hurling Championship in 2002.[1] The senior hurling team has challenged for honours every year since their golden year.

Notable Players[edit]

The Club's most famous player is Eoin Kelly, who was a member of the Tipperary team that won the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship in 2001, and captained Tipperary to its next win in 2010.[2]
