Kerry Minor Homecoming All Ireland Celebrations
Spa GAA Club honoured Man of the Match Dara Moynihan and his team mates last Saturday morning to a wonderful gathering. Gerard Mangan, Chairman welcomed the minors, Patrick O’Sullivan, Chairman Co. Board, Tim Ryan, Chairman of East Kerry Board along with the Minor Manager Peter Keane and his back-room staff. Dara introduced his fellow All Ireland winners and all were given an outstanding applause. Katie Purtil, physio was also congratulated and acknowledged as a fellow Spa senior lady player. The players were very gracious and put many a smile on everyone present to share in their glory. Great to see senior past and present players and our future when the underage turned up in their Kerry jerseys to take their photos with their heroes. Thanks to all who helped out with this wonderful celebration.
