SENIOR FOOTBALL: Club Secretary, Elma Nix has advised the Co. Board that we will not be entering a team in the Senior Club Cup Competition. The decision was based on several factors but predominantly because of health concerns as we have a large contingent of players based in Dublin, Cork & Limerick (for both college & work) travelling home for games on weekends. We did hope to enter a Junior team in the Tralee Town Board competition but this is unlikely now to go ahead with the introduction of the latest restrictions to all club activity as issued by the GAA on Monday Oct 5th.
THE C TEAM: Our C team’s Co. League game against Annascaul which had originally been fixed for early last month and was now scheduled to be played on this coming Saturday (10th Oct). This game along with all Club Activity as per GAA directive is now cancelled.
WELL DONE: to Don Quinn, former Club Footballer, on his outstanding recent achievement in raising a substantial sum (€10k) for his Charitable Organisation.

CLUBHOUSE: Regrettably after just being open for 2 weekends our Club Bar (having being closed for just over six months) has to close again as per the GAA directive received from Croke Park yesterday. We would like to thank the Club members and the Connolly residents who had helped get the place in tip top shape again for the re-opening. Hopefully, we will have another opportunity to re-open and welcome members and locals once again to the Club.
