ACADAMH NA gCAILÍNÍ: The Acadamh cailíní had their successful sponsored walk on Sunday and it was followed by…cad is dóigh leat?…a training session! Many thanks agus buíochas mór to all the girls and parents for their support. Please bring any outstanding cards/€€ to next session.
FAOI 12: (i) Our Under 12 (Division Two) girls played Currow on Monday 21st June at Connolly Park in a tough and energetic game. Our girls showed wonderful skill and determination and took their points with accurate kicking. They played with might and vigour. Several times when the girls from the banks of the Brown Flesk approached our goal and when we were under fierce pressure, we would see Ellen Ní Chonaill emerge from a melee of girls with the ball tightly grasped and clearing upfield…bhí sí thar barr ar fad! (ii) The girls have a game against Glenflesk coming up; report will be in next week’s notes.
TRAENÁIL ARÍS: Under Eight, Under Ten and Under Twelve: Confirmation will be sent by text asap. Good luck to Kerry on Sunday, especially to “Star”, Daniel and Fearghal.
AON CHEIST? If you’ve any questions, comments, etc, or wish to join our team of mentors, please ring/cuir glaoch ar John ar 0868151966 (evenings).
BIRTHDAYS: The Acadamh would like to point out to any prospective parents that we do not have any girls celebrating their birthdays this week! Is leor nod don eolach!
FAOI 14: Under Fourteen training continues on Tuesday and Thursday evening at 5.15pm in Connolly Park. The North Kerry League will be starting shortly and we have a bit of work to do for it…ní bhíonn damhsa gan dua!
FAOI 16: Training resumed this week for the Under Sixteen Squad and the Under Sixteen County League starts this weekend with a game against Legion, Killarney. Result and report in next week’s notes.
SENIOR/JUNIOR: The Austin Stack Club Senior Ladies begin their Junior Championship campaign this week with a home game against Castleisland Juniors. The fixture has not been confirmed going to print. We are confident that the great work that the girls have been doing in training will stand to them as they battle for their first County Title in many years. Mná na Carraige Abú!
SENIOR: Abbeydorney/Austin Stacks~ This amalgamated team, put together for the Senior County Championship, played excellant football on Sunday morning in Scartaglin, comprehensively defeating Brown Flesk Rovers…Raonaithe na Fleisce Rua. Many of our girls showed themselves worthy of playing at this level with huge
performances from Laura Rogers, Marina Barry-Walsh, Marie Clare Murphy, Lisa Brennan and Linda Raymond. Sarah Higgins was quite brilliant in defence and Breda Slattery proves her worth every time she togs out. The benefits of this co-operative effort with Abbeydorney can be seen in the improvement in our players as they are playing at the next level and are learning every time they train and play with the Abbeydorney girls. Congrats to all involved.
