We would like to welcome Julia and Aoibhinn to our team and club. Here you will make friends for life!
An enjoyable day had by all at the Carmel O’ Connor Memorial Garda Blitz last Saturday. We had 2 teams participate in this wonderful day out for U10 girls. Thanks to Rachel, Tricia and Brenda for looking after the girls and to Tony and Tommy for helping out with the reffing. Each girl was presented with a medal afterwards. Well done to Liz Twomey and everyone involved in organising it.
Kerins O’Rahilly’s U12s lead by their captain Millie Hayes saw victory over Churchill in the second round of the Town League last Monday, September 16th. Teams were neck and neck throughout the game with points from Kelly Fitzgerald, Aoibheann McCarthy and Aoife O’ Connell putting us ahead 0-6 to 0-5 at full time. It was a hard fought battle with our midfield duo of Sara Reka and Taylor Stack and all Kerins O’Rahilly’s backs, holding Churchill’s attacks well. Goalkeeper plus captain Millie Hayes, had a phenomenal game coming away from her goal line more than once to turn the game around. Well done to all involved.
This Tuesday, September 24th we are home to Stacks in round 3 of the Town League. Throw in will be at 6.15p.m. in Ballyrickard.

We were away to Stacks last Tuesday in round 3 of the North Kerry League. Stacks got off to a good start. We have a few girls carrying injuries and things weren’t looking well but in the second half there was a turnaround in the game when we caught up and drew with a final score of KOR 4-06 to Stacks 2-12. Well done to everyone! Also well done to Siobhán Clifford who made her debut in goals in the second half. Texts will be sent with details of your next game.
Round 3 of the North Kerry League has been postponed by the other team. We will let everyone know the new date as soon as we know. Our next two games will be played in Tralee.
Thanks to Con for organising a brilliant training session with Declan Quill last Thursday. Thanks also to Declan who gave us his time.
Disappointingly, we haven’t played any game in the last few weeks as we are awaiting a date from the other team. The ladies are having a day out next Saturday afternoon with a trip to Killarney. Enjoy ladies!
