Scor na nÓg All Ireland Champions
Chairman Gerard Mangan gave the competitors a grand send off from Spa clubhouse before they set off for Belfast last Friday. Each competitor received a commemorative half zip and a token from the club. Spa competed in GAA Scor na nÓg All Ireland in the Quiz and Set dancing, on Saturday at the Waterfront in Belfast.
The Quiz team came very close but unfortunately lost out by 2 pts to the overall winners, Donegal. Spa has represented Kerry in the quiz for the past 4 years winning 2 All Ireland’s. A huge achievement for our young brilliant stars. The Set dancers, danced their way to the top and claimed their All Ireland medal later in the same day. The club have won 6 All Ireland titles in Scor na nÓg in the past 4 years. None of this would be possible without the support of the club but especially our dancing coaches Triona Mangan, Mairead Mangan and quiz masters, Seamus Clifford and Eileen Aherne. Míle Buíochas!

Well done to our senior lady player Mags Cronin for strutting her stuff on the INEC stage. A great cause. With moves like that and quick feet, no one will be safe on the football pitch. Well done!
