LIBRARY EXHIBITION: Due to popular demand our Photographic Exhibition – Ag Féachaint Siar – highlighting the events of our Centenary year, in Tralee’s Co. Library has been extended for another week – to this Saturday (10rd March). It’s well worth a visit and can be viewed at any time during normal Library hours.

In the meantime the Co. League gets underway this coming weekend. Both our games are fixed for next Sunday (11th March) at 12.30pm. Our Seniors are away to Kilcummin and our B team have a home game against Kilgarvan. Keep in touch with our Website in case of any changes.

MINOR FOOTBALL: The Minor Co. League games also fell foul of the weather with all the round two games postponed last weekend. We were due to have played Dr. Crokes in Lewis Road last Saturday.

Round 3 is now scheduled to go ahead on this coming weekend. We have an away game against Cordal/Scartaglin on Saturday (10th March) at 4pm. (not sure as we write if the venue will be Cordal or Scartaglin) and then on Monday week, 19th March we have a home game against Killarney Legion in round 4 of the competition.
