Girls Academy: Our U8 girls had a great morning at the Munster LGFA blitz at Ballyrickard last Saturday morning. Well done girls & thanks to our coaches and to hosts Kerins O’Rahillys. Training goes ahead for our U10, U8 and U6s at 11am this Sunday in Caherslee.
U12 Girls: Austin Stacks U12 girls are laying down a challenge to every other U12 team in the country. Last night they scored an incredible 529 points in 20 minutes with 20 footballs from 20 metres. The players were inspired by their own club role models Marina Barry Walsh, holder of ten All Ireland medals in the 1980s/90s and current Kerry minor Aoife Dillane. In doing so, they also raised a huge sum of money for Down Syndrome Kerry and Kerry Hospice. Thanks to Kingdom Food & Wine who very kindly donated the hamper for our guess the score competition. Winner will be announced shortly.
So can any other team in the country match that total! We dare you!!!
A big thank you to coaches, Dave, Gràinne, Karen, Geno, Jimmy and Pa to Adrienne McLoughlin, John Breen and Jemma O’Connell, the parents and families who helped the “kicker-outers” and the all important adjudicators, Caroline Sugrue and Fionnuala English, who had gotten good practice watching balls sail over the bar for Tipperary in Croke Park last Sunday.
This Saturday Aug 24th our U12 girls will participate in the Munster LGFA Blitz taking place in Fossa. Good luck girls & enjoy the day.
U13 Girls: This Saturday afternoon we will welcome Milltown GAA Club from Co. Kildare to Connolly park for a friendly challenge game.
U14 Girls: We will play away to Ballymac at 6.30pm this Friday (Aug 23rd) in North Kerry League Div 1 and on Wednesday Aug 28th we will play at home to Moyvane in Div 3 at 6.30pm.
Senior Ladies: Many of our players & mentors had re-arranged work and had cancelled travel plans etc in order to make themselves available for our Senior Co. Championship Quarter final game last Sunday morning, so the feeling was one of disappointment when a very late call just 2 hours before throw in confirmed that the combined teams of Dr. Crokes/Spa Killarney were unable to field and wished to concede. We are now qualified for this year’s Senior Ladies Co. Championship Semi Final which is confirmed at home V Rathmore on Sept 8th. In the meantime we are due to play away to Finuge in the North Kerry Div 1 League next Monday night Aug 26th.
