Fleadh Cheoil Chiarrai
Well done to everyone from Spa who was involved in the Co. Fleadh in Milltown last weekend. Huge achievement for the local Comhaltas branch CCE Cill Airne in the FLeadh Cheoil Chiarrai held in Milltown at the beautiful Nagle Rice Community Centre.
The dance troupes went home with 13 gold and four silver medals. These accolades didn’t come easy especially with the high standard in Kerry. Our dancers practiced almost every night, even with some sitting leaving and junior certs etc. The parents are a huge cog in this wheel of success with their dedication.
Special thanks to dance coaches Triona Mangan and Mairead Mangan and their mom Ann the secretary of the branch. Our mascot Reidín was outstanding with helping all the dancers on the stage. Last but not least our superb musicians Sean O Laoithe and Damien Mullane who blew us away with their talent and lifted the roof off with their tunes.
Best of luck to all competitors who head to Ennis for the Munster Fleadh in July.
U12 Boys Group 1
Our 2019 County League campaign came to a conclusion on Sunday with a one point loss away to Austin Stacks on a scoreline of Spa 3-13 Austin Stacks 3-14. Trailing by 4 points after as many minutes, one might have been forgiven for thinking this was going to be a long night especially as we were missing one or two regular starters and fielded a team with 3 U-10 boys. But true to form, this group of boys dug deep to come back into the game and went in at half time a point behind on a score of Spa 2-06 Austin Stacks 1-10. We started the second half very brightly and at one point held a 4 point advantage over the Tralee Club. Austin Stacks themselves worked hard to get back into it and two second half goals by them saw us concede the advantage by the slenderest of margins.
We had a number of chances at the end to level the score but it just didn’t materialise for us.
Overall it was a very competitive competition with all teams taking points off each other, there were some fabulous passages of play, resolute defending and silky scores on display in all matches over the league. The boys can be very proud of themselves and are well able to hold their own at this level.
A Special thank you to the second team and to Tom Moynihan and John O’Donoghue for managing same. This was not an easy task for this team, the majority of which play their football at U-10 Level.
They competed strongly and are a credit to their coaches and their parents for the manner in which they performed. The first team would not have had the opportunity to participate in this tournament without your support, so on behalf of all the first team & first team management Adrian, Denis and Mike, many thanks for your support.
Next up is the East Kerry League at home to Legion next Sunday @ 12.00
U12 Boys Group 2
Well done to our U12 B team who took on a strong Austin Stacks team back in Tralee in our final game on Sunday evening, our players played fantastic showing great skill and determination and have improved so much since their first game, a special thanks also to our 2 girls Muireann and Casey who have been outstanding for us throughout the competition.

Junior EK League: Spa 3-8 Glenflesk 0-12
This game was played in Glenflesk on Tuesday evening. Liam Spillane opened the Spa account with a goal after a few minutes and followed on with two well taken points. Glenflesk however took every scoring opportunity and quickly jumped into an 0-8 to 1-2 lead. Two late points for each side, the Spa scorers Thomas Cronin and Paul Cahill, and at the break Glenflesk led 0-10 to 1-4.
Spa had a better second half and Ryan Kelliher had a point on the board before Eoghan Cronin netted Spa’s second goal early in the half. Glenfesk however quickly levelled the game at 2-5 to 0-11. Mikey Moynihan tapped over two more and Glenflesk were strong in attack with Ollie Cremin pulling off a super one-on-one save in the final quarter.
