U12 Girls: Training continues every Tuesday and Thursday evenings in Connolly Park. We send get well wishes to Grace Lucid who sustained a recent foot injury.
U13 Girls: We took part in the annual Sandra Keane Invitational Tournament last Saturday at John Mitchels Complex. For a variety of reasons we just had the bare 13 players on the day but it’s fair to say that those 13 girls simply played out of their skins. Against the odds they topped their group following decisive wins over Listowel (1-2 to 6-4), Annascaul/Dingle (0-1 to 5-6) and Killarney Legion (1-1 to 2-2) but unfortunately we were defeated by Castleisland Desmonds in the Cup Semi Final (1-2 to 3-2). Our girls were out on their feet by the end of the day but mentors Anthony, Marian & Siobhan could not have been more proud. Our thanks to the organizers on another superbly run tournament. Next up for this team will be the U13 Co. Championship when we are due to play Ballymac or Scartaglin at home on Friday 10th August.

Hard Luck to Kerry U16s including our own Aoife Dillane who were defeated by Galway in the All Ireland final on Wednesday July 25th in Toomevara after extra time. The two sides battled out a fantastic contest. FT Galway 3-16 Kerry 3-12.
Senior Ladies: At very short notice our Mary Jo Cup Game V Castleisland did not go ahead (again) last Thursday (July 26th). Castleisland have now conceded the round. We played away to Scartaglin in the same competition last night Thursday Aug 2nd in Cordal and in a very high scoring game came away with the win FT Scartaglin 2-10 Austin Stacks 3-11. Next up in this competition will be a meeting with Na Gaeil.
