U12 Boys East Kerry League: Spa 3-16 Legion 2-12
The teams played a great entertaining, fast pace game in Spa. Both teams were excellent on the night with the home side getting the edge on our neighbours. Skill level is top class and that’s partially down to the coaches who are doing an excellent job with our younger members. The block downs, catching, kicking, passing and teamwork was just class and brilliant to watch. This group is very dedicated, and you won’t be disappointed by showing up to support this team.
U13 Girls Trophy Championship
Our U13 girls lost to a strong Castlegregory team in the U13 Trophy World Championships earlier this week. It was a great eye opener to the younger girls who will be moving up to U14 next year. The game was enjoyable and unfortunately they won’t be going into the next round as its knockout. It was the first time some of these young players had the opportunity in playing on a full pitch. And it was great to see a team entering this competition in four years.
Munster Fleadh Cheoil
Congrats to all the dancers who will represent Munster in the All Ireland Fleadh in Drogheda this August. 12 dance troupes will travel to represent CCE Cill Airne, Co. Chiarraí and Munster. Huge achievement for all dancers, coaches and parents, supporters. Special mention to dance teachers Triona and Mairead Mangan who coached and also competed in Senior Ladies and Senior Mixed Sets.

The group headed off from Kate Kearney’s that morning, joined by Club Chairman Michael Cronin, Coiste na nÓg Chairman Seamus Moynihan and our Health & Wellbeing Officer Margaret Doyle. Despite the rain, almost 70 people, young and old, met at Kate Kearney’s Cottage that morning. This is the second walk organised by the club this summer following a successful outing to Muckross a few weeks ago. Well done to all involved!
