We were eliminated from the Cahill Cup when defeated by Skellig Rangers on Friday night last at the quarter final stage in Strand Road on a final score line of 4-14 to 1-03.
Preparations continue for our quarter final date with East Kerry next week end ( David Clifford et al) , a game which is eagerly anticipated since the draw was announced.
The game throws in @ 16.00 in Austin Stack Park with Jonathan Griffin the man in the middle. Extra time will be played if required – more news and previews during the coming week on www.kerinsorahillys.com
We played our 2nd game on Sunday morning when making the short journey to Blennerville to take on the locals; we started well with good play from Conor Hayes, Darragh Fitzgerald, Daniel Bowler and Conor O’Sullivan – at half time we led by 6 points, 1-09 to 0-06. Defensively we were strong too with good displays from Joe Hanafin in goal, Barry Foley, Stephen Nix & Rian McLysaght; we drove on in the second half and with Conor O’Sullivan to the fore we ran out deserving winners on a final score line of 3-16 to 1-11. We continue our programme when Austin Stacks are the visitors to Strand Rd on Sunday 24th @ 12 noon.
Congratulations to the Kerry minors on winning a historic 4 titles in a row – great credit to them, their management team and all involved.

Keep up the good work and thanks also to the Moms, Dads and Grandparents and mentors.

WELL DONE TO ALL !
The girls met John Mitchels last week in round 4 of The Town League. There was a yellow status weather warning and it was wild up in John Mitchels. Mitchels got off to a good start scoring 3 points but our girls got used to the windy conditions and the final score was 1-10 to 0-3.
We are home to Ballymac this Monday in round 5. Throw in at 6.15p.m.
The girls have had plenty of football over the last few weeks. They are playing back games in The North Kerry League and are also playing The Town League at the moment.
They are home to John Mitchels this Monday. Best of luck to the girls and their mentors.
Congrats to Katie Dwyer, her teammates and mentors on winning the U14 All Ireland Camogie Blitz.
Congrats to the girls who received their Junior Cert results during the week.
We are playing in The Town League at the moment. We were home to Ballymac during the week . Despite our visiting team being much the stronger there were some fine displays on our side and the girls never gave up. Well done girls. This Wednesday we are away to Moyvane in The North Kerry League. Throw in at 7p.m.
Circuit training will commence in the next few weeks. Texts will be sent.
U11 Development Training
There will be no development training this Saturday, September 23rd as it is ladies All Ireland weekend.
U13 Development Training
U13s commenced their development training last Saturday in John Mitchels. There was a poor turnout girls so hopefully the remainder of you will turn up on Saturday 30th . It is a great opportunity for you to develop your skills and a lot of time and effort goes into arranging these training sessions.
