The official opening of our brand new gym, upstairs in the Healy Room took place this evening before a large gathering.

It was a momentous occasion that symbolizes a commitment to health, fitness and community and testament to hard work and the " meitheal" concept.

The official opening was performed by the late Pat Healy's daughters Kay & Roisin  in the presence of club president Richard Walsh, club chairman Oliver Molloy, Mayor of Tralee Terry O'Brien as well as Minister for Education Norma Foley and newly elected councillors Paul Daly, Angie Baily and Anne O'Sullivan as well as players and club members.

Chairman Oliver Molloy in his speech, spoke of the inspiration behind the gym, the never to be forgotten All Ireland senior club championship journey in 2022 - it was from this journey that he saw a need for the club to have its own gym to cater for all members and for all teams.

The funding came from the proceeds of Last Man Standing and the very generous donation of JP & Noreen McManus; the expertise around the design and equipment came from new tenant, Dan Breen of Inception Performance but the realisation of his dream came from the volunteering of club members, Richie Roche, John O'Brien, Rory Molloy, Mark Higgins as well as the likes of juvenile chair, John O'Connor who organised an army of cleaners on Good Friday who put in trojan work to make the dream a reality. Morgan Nix's contribution too was recognised providing the expertise of his cleaning company Envirocoat Ltd.

Oliver was also keen to acknowledge the support of the Higgins family and Kingdom Print who have never been found wanting when called upon.

All that was left then was for the official opening with Kay & Róisin doing the honours.
