Stacks Strictly Come Dancing Launch: The official launch of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing took place in the Clubhouse last night (Mon Aug 6th). We have 14 fabulous couples this year, and they are working hard to bring an incredible show to The Festival Dome once again on Saturday August 25th. More details to follow on our contestants and we will have information on tickets shortly.
SENIOR FOOTBALL: Our Seniors have three games coming up in three different competitions over the next few weeks. First up is our Town Championship semi final away to Ballymac this weekend – Match will be played at 4pm this Sun Aug 12th – check website for confirmation later in the week. Then on the following Sunday (19th Aug) the last round of the Co. League is due to take place. We play Castleisland Desmonds at home, and all games have been fixed for 1pm to avoid a clash with the All Ireland SH Final (Galway .v. Limerick) which throws in at 3.30pm. And our next game after that is likely to be our encounter against Kenmare District in the opening round of the Co. Championship.
BEST WISHES: Congratulations and best wished to current SF Selector Jonathan Conway and his new bride Emma Enright who got married last Saturday. Health and happiness to you both from everyone in the Club and the wider community.
B FOOTBALL: We are due to play Kerins O’Rahillys in a round of the Town League in Healy Park on this Wednesday evening (8th Aug) at 7.30pm.
MINOR FOOTBALL: Our Minors are due to play Shannon Rangers in Connolly Park on next Tuesday evening (14th Aug) in the quarter final of the Co. Championship. Throw in at 7pm with extra time if required.
HURLING: The South Kerry League, away to Duagh, is due to go ahead on this Wednesday evening (8th Aug) at 8pm. If we win this game we then have won the League. However if Duagh win the game then both sides will be on six points each after completion of the four rounds and the sides then will have to meet again in the League Final.
