Austin Stacks GAA Club News

SENIOR FOOTBALL: Club Secretary, Elma Nix has advised the Co. Board that we will not be entering a team in the Senior Club Cup Competition. The decision was based on several factors but predominantly because of health concerns as we have a large contingent of players based in Dublin, Cork & Limerick (for both college & work) travelling home for games on weekends.
We did hope to enter a Junior team in the Tralee Town Board competition but everything now is up in the air again with the introduction of the latest Covid restrictions.

THE C TEAM: And that includes our C team’s Co. League game against Annascaul which had originally been fixed for early last month  and was now scheduled to be played on this coming Saturday (10th Oct).

WELL DONE: to Don Quinn, former Club Footballer, on his outstanding recent achievement in raising a substantial sum (€10k) for his Charitable Organisation.
