U10 GIRLS – TRIP TO CROKER
What a day was had by all! – the girls, their coaches and the parents and siblings who travelled to Croke Park last Monday on the first day of the Easter holidays. An experience never to be forgotten by any of us. It was magical – for the girls themselves playing in Croker, their coaches Pádraig, Rory and Rachel and for all of us watching.
Huge thanks to Eleanor and Roy from Sandy Feet Farm who kindly treated everyone to food in the Barak Obama Plaza on the way home. Thanks also to Dan in Bodibro for collecting our gear from Dublin Airport and waiting for us. We were definitely the best dressed as we entered Croke Park with pride, clad in our new half zips, skinnies and jerseys .
A great experience and memories that the girls will always have. Well done girls, you are a credit to yourselves, your families and our club.
We will be hosting U8 and U10 Go Games in June. Emails will be sent to all clubs shortly.
Well done girls in your away match to Duagh last Wednesday in the North Kerry preliminaries. Final score 4-03 to 2-09. The County League commences shortly. Fixtures will be sent to parents during the week.
Last Thursday evening we travelled down to South Kerry to play ISG in the non-county player County League. Unfortunately for us, ISG came out on top after a tight battle with a final scoreline of 4-6 to 4-1. Well done girls to each of you and to our captain on the night, Lia McLysaght who showed great leadership skills. Everyone put in a great effort.
Last Saturday the girls headed to the Kerry GAA Centre of Excellence in Currans to participate in the 2019 Féile qualifiers. It was a glorious day. The reward from the hard work over the past few years is that the girls now compete in Division 2. We were drawn against 3 Division 1 teams – Southern Gaels, Cromane and Ballymac. All of our girls showed massive heart and pride in their Kerins O’Rahillys’ jersey – giving each game 110%. We found ourselves punching above our weight as each game was very tough with the standard being so high, but fantastic to watch. We didn’t go down without a fight, narrowly losing to Cromane and Ballymac. We played Southern Gaels who were just sensational to watch and to prove it they are representing Kerry in the 2019 Division 1 and 2 Féile in Connacht. Best wishes to them and congratulations. We would like to thank all the girls who never give up and who consistently give it all, week in and week out . Thanks to all the parents and management also on the day.
After our recent thrilling drawn encounter v Fossa, we are away to Beale/Ballyduff on Thursday, April 25th. Throw in at 7pm in Beale pitch.
Continued best wishes to Ciara Madden for a speedy recovery after her injury in the last game.
Best of luck to the girls who are home to Beale/Ballyduff on Easter Monday. Throw in at 5.30pm in Strand Road.
Our senior ladies made their debut in the county league when they were away to a very strong Ballymac side last Thursday. It was great to field a team after many years. Many thanks to their coaches for all their hard work in getting this crew together. Well done ladies. Training continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Looking forward to seeing old and new faces.
We continue to recruit. Remember it’s never too late to start. Everyone in our ladies club is well looked after and we want for nothing thanks to our senior club.
