Juvenile: Our juvenile season is now well and truly 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 all 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 CLG is Juvenile Club of the Year

Scór: On this Friday evening, a coach full of young people, their mentors, families and friends will set off for Knockarea, Sligo for the All-Ireland Final of Scór Na nÓg. This is a huge achievement for these young thespians who have put in trojan work to reach this penultimate stage and we hope they enjoy the wonderful experience ahead of them…!

This would not be possible without acknowledging the input of two very special ladies, Mary Quirke and Margaret Doody who are instrumental in getting these young performers to the cusp of the winners’ enclosure …

Scór is a huge part of our club life and community spirit, and it is such a proud occasion to have our very talented Léiriú group representing Na Gaeil, Tralee /St Brendan’s Board, Kerry and Munster in a bid for All Ireland glory ….’

The club is so proud of you all and send their very best wishes for Saturday next to Barry Sugrue, Liam Óg Kingston, Joshua Roche, Dearbhla Quirke, Aine & Aoife O’Sullivan, Isabelle and Emily Crowe …Na Gaeil Abú…!
