Senior Football

U21s Our U21s received a walkover in the Club Shield from Moyvane/Tarbert.


As you may be aware it will be compulsory for all players senior right down to juvenile to wear mouth-guards at training sessions and when playing games. This comes into effect for seniors from 1st January 2014 and has been in effect for all others since last January. If players fail to wear mouth guards they will not be permitted to participate in football training or matches. No mouthguard No game! Further information on this rule can be found online at

Club Membership

Senior Committee will be in contact with you shortly about your 2014 membership. We will be asking that you consider putting your membership on direct debit to help cut down on administration. Please contact any committee member for details. The cut off date for receipt of membership is the 15th of September and only fully paid members will be considered for All-Ireland tickets.

Ladies Football

U12 Girls play John Mitchels in the Semi-Final of the Town League on this Friday the 5th of September at 6.45 in Healy Park Ballyrickard.

U14/U16 U14 and U16 Ladies train every Tuesday at 6.15 in Ballyrickard.


Congratulations to the Kerry Senior team and Management on reaching the All-Ireland final. They put on what was a thrilling performance in Limerick on Saturday last.

This win was inspired by a spectacular midfield performance by our own David Moran who never tired throughout the 95 odd minutes of intense football played on the day.

Barry John Keane put in his usual stalwart performance when brought on and added the energy needed at the time.

Congratulations to another Tralee man Kieran Donaghy on his outstanding performance on the day.
