Seniors    Na Gaeil play Austin Stacks in Round 10 of the Senior Football League  on Saturday evening next July 28th at 7pm in Killeen.

U14    Na Gaeil U14’s played Austin Stacks on Sunday 15th July in the Central Region Division 1. The lads played with great determination and skill. They were worthy winners, scoring 5-18 to Austin Stacks 3-7. The result puts us level with Austin Stacks on 2 points. We face Kerins O’ Rahilly’s at 7pm on Monday evening 23rd July at Strand Road and a win there could see us qualify for the semi-final of the competition.

U13    Our U13’s played away to Ballymac last Thursday evening, 19th July in the Town Board League. Despite playing very well, the boys lost out to the hosts. Many thanks to all the players who lined out. Our last game in the competition will be away to Churchill on Thursday next, 26th July.

U12    Last Wednesday 18th July we took part in the Munster U12 Blitz in Fitzgerald Stadium. We played three games. A draw in our first game against Gaeltacht got us off to a good start. We followed this with wins over Kilmihill of Clare and Kilcummin.It was a wonderful experience for all our lads to play in Fitzgerald Stadium and they also got the added bonus of a stadium tour with Kerry player Daithí Casey. Thanks to the parents who provided transport for the players on the day.

U10    Boys U10 Training will continue this Thursday evening at 6:30pm and also on Sunday morning at 11am. Don’t forget your gum-shields and water. See you all there!

U16 Ladies     Following a number of weeks without a match we are back in action this Friday evening with an away game to Firies.  This will be a good opportunity for the girls to get some practice in ahead of the Div. 2 semi-finals the following week.  Best wishes to Mary O’Connell and her Kerry team mates who play Galway in the All Ireland  U16A Final this Wednesday in Toomevara.  We would also send best wishes to Eddie Sheehy and the Na Gaeil contingent with the Kerry seniors in their game against Donegal next weekend.

Congrats    Congratulations to Andrew Barry who played at no. 6 on the Kerry junior Football Team that defeated Galway in the All Ireland Final on Saturday, winning his 4th All Ireland medal. A great achievement indeed!

Good Luck    Best of luck to Na Gaeil players Laura Fitzgerald, Deirdre Kearney, Meabh Barry and Jadyn Lucey who are part of the Kerry Ladies Team that take on Donegal in the TG4 All Ireland Qualifier in Dr. Hyde Park in Roscommon on Saturday and to their management team of Eddie Sheehy, Liam Culloty, Mike Barrett and Janice McHugh.

Good luck also to Mary O’Connell and the Kerry U16 Ladies Team as they play Galway in the All Ireland Final in Toomevara, Co. Tipperary this Wednesday.
