Our final Co. League game Vs Ardfert has been provisionally fixed for 7/8th November 2015 however, should South Kerry reach the Co. Final this date will change.

Our u16, u14 and u12 male and female teams had a great run in the hills around Glanageenty last Sunday morning. The Lee Strand Bratz B’wildered run was co-ordinated from Herlihy’s farm and 12 teams ran across demanding terrain in glorious autumn weather.

Mike Brosnan successfully guided his team of Mike Hoare, Claire Kenny, Cian Godley, Aisling O’Connell, Mossie Brennan and Kieran Slattery to first place.

There was an overall great display of athletics and team spirit on the day. We acknowledge the work of the organising committee team mentors and stewards, James Sugrue and Siobhan Leen who did the catering and Brenda White and Paul Baynham who provided medical support, Cillian Rahilly and Ciara Curran who provided the entertainment. All are already looking forward to Bratz Bewildered 2016.

Hard luck to our U13 boys who lost the town league semi final to Austin Stacks on a score of 3-5 to 4-5. They will be playing in the shield final later in October.

Our U10 boys have their final day of football for 2015 on Sunday morning next at 10.00am in Connolly Park where we have been invited to take part in a 4 team blitz. The other teams competing are Austin Stacks, Churchill and Kilmacud Crokes (Dublin).

The final academy session of the year takes place next Sunday at 11am. The awards evening will take place in Ballygarry House Hotel on Bank Holiday Monday commencing at 3.00pm. Look forward to seeing you all there.

After attending training sessions every Saturday morning for the last eight weeks, five of the club’s under 12 girls panel travelled to St Joseph’s Doorabarefield in County Clare to represent the North Kerry Development Squad. Cora Savage , Sinead Mc Keown, Roisin Long, Emily O Donoghue and Sophie O Donoghue all did the club proud on the day competing against Galway, Tipperary and Clare on the way to winning the tournament.

It was great to see our girls more than hold their own throughout the day, with Cora Savage having the honour of winning player of the tournament, and being presented with her trophy by a member of the Clare Ladies County Board.

Well done Cora and to the other girls aswell. Ye did us proud. The achievements of these girls is testament to the great work being done by the coaches at underage level in the Club.

Academy girls came to an end this morning. What a wonderful end to our season we had. All girls have improved their skills this year.

All the trainers would like to thank the girls for a great year and we look forward to next year. Congratulations to Rose, Anna, Jill, Katie ,Michelle, Aisling, Debra, Emily, Sophie, Laura, Hazel, Sileoonagh, Niamh Rice, Ruby, Fallyn, Niamh Enright, Grace, Saoirse, Sinead & Megan for all ye’re hard work.

Girls enjoy the break over the winter and keep practicing. Many thanks to team trainers Terence O Connor, John Scanlon, Don Brosnan, Michelle Lynch and Ciara Curran for their great dedication every Sunday morning to this bunch of girls.
