Over the next few weeks we will be organising ‘Street Leagues ‘ for the girls in our community. So no excuses about being bored during your long summer holidays….. Everyone welcome! Plenty of fun girls and we will have a final and medal presentation at the end.
Co. League Final
Our girls gave an outstanding performance in Currans on Tuesday last to win their Co. League final. Cheered on by a huge and vocal support, the girls played their hearts out on the wide-open pitch. Though we had named our 15 starters, Dingle could only muster 13 players and therefore we had to go 13–A- SIDE.
The setting sun provided a picturesque background as the girls played with the sun to their backs in the first half. It was nip and tuck for the first 10 minutes with a point from Ciara Gallagher followed by a further point from a free by Fiadh McCarthy. The outstanding Kelly Fitzgerald banged in 2 excellent goals giving us a half time lead of 2-02 to O-04.
In the second half Dingle threw everything at us but goalkeeper Millie and all six backs Mia, Farah, Donna, Saoirse, Sophie and Taylor stood up to the challenge. Fiadh added two more points and Aoibheann McCarthy cracked in a great goal. Sara at midfield plus our other forwards Córa, Aoife, Megan, Taylor Kate and Caragh caused Dingle lots of trouble. When Leila, Aoibhne and Kelly Hayes were introduced, they helped secure a famous victory.
Final score- Kerins O’Rahillys 3-06 to Dingle 1-06.
Kelly Fitz accepted the trophy and gave a super speech. Many thanks to Michelle, Pádraig and Rory. There were great celebrations on the road back to Strand Road.
Training continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays in preparation for the North Kerry plate final v Duagh. More details to follow.
Well done to Kelly Fitzgerald who played at half time of The Munster Final in the Kerry Primary School Games team. As always some outstanding kick outs from Kelly.
Training continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays in preparation for The Sandra Keane Tournament on July 20th and the U13 and U15 Championship.
Training continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays in preparation for U15 and U17 Championship.
Our numbers are still increasing thanks to the girls bringing friends along to join in. A big thank you to Erris for her commitment and patience in rounding up our ladies.
The ladies should have played Beale/ Ballyduff in the Co. League but unfortunately they cancelled the game on Sunday evening. Our disappointed ladies were so looking forward to a game. We are away to Annascaul next Sunday – more details to follow.
On Sunday, July 7th we will have a cake sale in Strand Road. This is one of our fundraisers for the year. So far we have been able to get 2 new sets of jerseys but could do with more. We also will be bag packing later in the summer to raise funds for our day out. All help greatly appreciated please.
Congrats to our girls and boys who competed in the Community Games and many thanks to the ladies in Blennerville / Ballyard Community Games for all their hard work as always in organising everything.
Congrats also to our girls and boys who have graduated or are graduating from 6th class.
