The original plan was to play it as a small tournament with eight teams in a Tralee venue. But due to its success we had to expand the tournament to 16 teams, with a competitive side and fun side as well.

There are four trophies up for grabs; Cup, Shield, Plate and Trophy with over 300 girls playing football.

Sandra Keane was not only a player, but she managed teams and was a loyal supporter to her club Kerins O’Rahillys until her untimely death in 2007 .┬áThe Tournament gives girls plenty of games to clubs from North Kerry and East Kerry.
