Minor Girls: Unfortunately we have had to withdraw from this year’s Minor Co. League competition. While we did have the numbers on paper it proved impossible to get the team together with other sports, school commitments, Kerry training etc etc. We would like to acknowledge the help of Pat Carmody and Mike Casey who did everything they could to get the team up and running. We encourage the girls to continue their trainings with the senior or U16 teams. We will work to have a minor team in place for this competition in 2020. We extend congratulations to Club players Aoife Dillane, Rachel Ryan & Abi Casey who were part of the Kerry Minor team which defeated Tipperary in Rd 1 of the Munster Championship last Saturday. The team is of course co-managed by former senior club player Darragh Long.
Senior Ladies: Training was cancelled last Tuesday due to bad weather, S&C session in Club gym at 7pm on Friday nights. Our first Co. League game is due to take place this Bank Holiday Monday March 18th away to Cromane. Match details tbc.
