Senior 2021 AGM in club on Friday 21/01/22 at 7pm,will revert to online AGM if any worsening public health situation.

Any notices of motion of nominations to Club Secretary Tony Corridon ( )by Friday 14th of January at 5pm.

We wish all involved with our club and community a very, happy, healthy and safe 2022.
Despite the toughest of circumstances over the past two years because of Covid our community and club have worked hard to keep spirits alive on and off the pitch.

While looking forward, it’s also a time to reflect on the great work done in 2021 when our pitches were a hive of activity once we got out there .

It is you our players, coaches, parents, volunteers and supporters who made this possible. Thank you!

We were delighted to have been able to purchase much needed equipment  for the girls in 2021 from our fundraiser in late 2020 when we raised €2,200 with your help and generosity.

We purchased footballs, bibs and training equipment at the start of 2021. Each girl had her own football during training and must say the U12s and U14s were quite stylish in their new colourful bibs.

A New Year….a new chapter for Kerins O’ Rahilly’s ladies…. “A New Year is like a blank book, the pen is in your hands …It is your chance to write a beautiful story! “

Looking forward to seeing everyone out there again soon and hoping to be able to do more this year which of course is all dependent on restrictions. And of course not forgetting that we as a club are looking forward to welcoming new girls to our friendly football family .

Foireann has the functionality for coaches to send messages to their teams. These messages and updates will be seen when the health questionnaires are being filled in prior to training and games.

Parents and guardians must ensure that their profile and family profiles are updated with the correct information.

We will let you know when this is up and running. This will then cut out the use of what’s app groups. As per guidelines no underage children should be on any group.

A warm welcome to the U10 girls who have moved up to the ladies section of our wonderful club.
This year’s management team will be Adrian Doody, Tricia Moran and Mary Clifford… an enthusiastic and encouraging sideline team! Tricia and Mary are no strangers to you. Most of you will also know Adrian who has moved on with you from the juvenile club. Adrian worked under the management of the late wonderful Marie Nix many years ago when Marie had the U8 and U10 girls.
Mary, Tricia and Adrian be in contact with you this week regarding back to training everything going well!!
They are looking forward to seeing you soon and enjoying a great year of football while having fun. They have your gear ready and are set to go!

Congrats and best wishes to Saoirse O’ Connor MacCarthy and Aoibheann McCarthy who are on the U14 County training panel. We wish you both the best for 2022.

More exciting news as Kelly Fitzgerald has again made the County training panel, this time as an U16. Congrats to Kelly!

Great news to start 2022 is with the engagement of our senior captain Ross O’ Callaghan to the beautiful Tracey Stack. We wish you every health and happiness for the future. Congrats!

We’re delighted to have been successful with our application for the Gaelic4Girls programme for 2022.
This focuses on FUN and PARTICIPATION, allowing girls to get an introduction to Gaelic football in a non competitive environment. This is a way to make new friends, spend more time with your present friends and take up a new hobby while having fun. Bring a friend or neighbour girls. For further information text or what’s app Shirley (086) 8713552. This is for girls aged 8-12 years.
