Senior Football Championship    A great display by St. Brendan’s in the semi final of the Senior Football Championship against East Kerry in Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday.

Only a point separated the sides with minutes left in the game and they were unlucky not to get at least a draw. David Clifford was the difference between the sides with a personal tally of nine points.

Well done to the St. Brendan’s players and management for a great campaign. They are going in the right direction and hopefully will go a step further next year.

Race Night     A date for your diary. On Friday 30th November we are holding an all sponsored Race Night to finance our increasingly expanding Club both on and off the field of play. It is a special year for the club with the senior team being crowned Premier Junior Champions in May.

They now look forward to the first round of the Munster Championship in November with a tilt at the Cork County Champions. This will bring a new but welcome expense.

We ask all our supporters, players and parents to purchase a horse @ € 40 from any member of the Race Committee or from the Club Bar over the coming weeks.
