TINY TOTS UNDER 6/8: (i) What a Sunday morning of football in Caherslee! Indeed, the day of the Jimmy Barry Cup final is always a great day! We had marching, music and medals as part of our grand finale. Danny Lane received the Jimmy Barry Cup on behalf of his team. Well done, boys! Former stars, William Kirby and Pa Laide, were overjoyed with the high level of skill by our youngsters! ‘No deeds like these have I seen in Croker!’ Pa was overheard saying to William. William agreed! Sin moladh! (ii) Agus, leis sin, we’ll take a break from football until our Presentation (and 2017 Calendar) Day in Mí na Nollag. Coimeád spás don gcóisir!

Last weekend we had the culmination of our football year with the running of the John Lynch Memorial Under 10 Tournament. The event was a great success. 8 pitches, 8 senior Kerry referees, 8 clubs, 16 teams and glorious weather! Outstanding football was played by players from Kilmacud Crokes, St Finbarr’s, Glanmire, Listowel, Milltown-Castlemaine, Churchill, Ardfert and our own men from The Rock. A great time was had by all and our stalwarts were defeated in the final by Kilmacud Crokes. ‘Well done’ to organizers, support team, players and parents. (ii) We’ll take a break from football until our Presentation (and 2017 new Calendar) Day in Mí na Nollag. Save the appetite for the party!
