U12 : Our U12s had a busy weekend of hurling, when they played St. Pat’s/Dr. Crokes last Friday evening under lights in Abbeydorney.

They held off a brave 2nd half comeback from the East Kerry side to win on a scoreline of Abbeydorney 3-04 St. Pats/Dr. Crokes 2-04.

On Saturday morning, they travelled to Adare to take part in the Tony Houlihan Memorial Tournament where they played the cream of Munster Hurling. They had a very enjoyable day of hurling with the highlight being the opportunity to hold the coveted Liam McCarthy Cup.

U15 : Our U15 team took part in the Gary Scollard Tournament in Connolly Park last Saturday. They were defeated by St. Brendan’s, Ardfert at the semi-final stage of the competition.

BATTLE OF THE PARISH : Rehearsals are well underway for our Main Event of the year on Sunday, 28th October in Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

While the aim of Battle of the Parish is to raise much-needed funds to cover the day-to-day and development costs of running our club, we acknowledge that assisting charitable organisations raise awareness about the tireless work they do for the benefit of others, fits well with the values of the GAA.

A percentage of the proceeds raised from our Battle of the Parish event will be donated to the Kerry Hospice Foundation, which we hope will help in some way to champion their fund-raising efforts. Tickets will go on sale from 6th October.

KERRY HURLING ALL-STARS : The Kerry Hurling All Stars will take place in Abbeydorney GAA Club House on October 6th at 8.00 pm sharp.

The event usually runs for between 45 minutes and one hour. Nominees will soon be announced. The event is free and all are welcome.
