Juvenile: Our juvenile season is now up and running with all teams back doing light training and games. Watch these notes for reports etc. and make sure that mentors/coaches have parents’/guardians’ phone numbers for texts to keep families informed of times and venues etc.. We hope that everyone will enjoy the year and have successes like last year.

Parents can be assured that all our coaches are gárda vetted and have their appropriate coaching badges. Remember that Na Gaeil is Juvenile Club of the Year

Scór: A big thank you to all who supported our quiz last Friday evening. This was to help support our young Lèiriú thespians who are heading to Sligo to represent Na Gaeil Tralee /St Brendan’s Board, Kerry and Munster in the All-Ireland Scór Na nÓg Final on Saturday 17th February. We hope that you all enjoyed the evening.
