The St. Brendans Board u-16 had a great win over Mid Kerry in the semi-final of the Kerry County Champinship played in Mitchels on Monday night on a score line of 2-11 to 0-15.

The Churchill players who played were Sean Mortimer,Sean Donnellan and sub Thomas Lenihan who had an excellent game when he came on. Kenneth Lenihan was our selector.

They now go on to meet the much fancied East Kerry in the final.Again this highlights how important the Board is to the clubs in the area as it showcases our players to the county selectors.So we would like everybody in the clubs to come out and support the boys in the green and white.


We would like to send sympathy to the O’Donoghue family and the St. Pats Club Blennerville on the death of great clubman Tony O’Donoghue.

All-Ireland Tickets

If Churchill win all their 3 remaining games in the League, they will be promoted to Division 3, so it is vital that we have as much support as possible.
