Ray Walsh has been announced as the new club bainisteoir for the coming year.
Ray has a long and storied association with the club and in fact since 2000 has held a coaching/managerial role in the club be it at juvenile, minor or senior level.
He was bainisteoir in 2006 when we won our first county minor championship in a side that included Tommy Walsh, David Moran and Con Barrett - he followed that triumph when patrolling the sidelines as we won 3 successive minor county leagues in '07, '08 & '09.
He moved onto the senior panel in 2010 when we won the senior club championship.
He had success later with the u-21s when we won the club championship in 2013 and the big breakthrough in 2015 when our U-21s beat a fancied East Kerry side on a never to be forgotten night in Castleisland.
He later served alongside Barry O'Shea in 2015 as a selector.
In addition to his time with the club, he gained valuable experience with both Scartaglin and Finuge at county league level.
Ray is a worthy successor to John O'Connor, a true blue and uniquely will serve as manager with his dad, Captain Dick as our new president.
Ray will be announcing his management team shortly.
We wish him and the lads all the best for the year ahead!
