IT wasn’t a vintage year for Kilmoyley GAA, but around 150 of the club faithful gathered to honour a club great and look back on the year at their annual social in Ballyroe Heights Hotel on Saturday night.

Chairman of the club, Joe Walsh, said it was a quiet year by their standards.

“We got to the semis of the championship and the intermediates reached the semi-finals as well. Hopefully the hunger is back and we’ll look forward to the championship this year, which promises to be another great one,” said Joe.

The main award on the night was the Hall of Fame which went to Denis Treacy, recognised for his years of commitment and dedication to the club as a player, mentor and official.

Denis, the current Vice-President of the Club, won a minor county championship in hurling and football in 1953, he played Kerry junior and minor in 1954. He played with his brothers Michael and Sean in the Kerry hurling championship final in 1955, before emigrating to London the following year.

He was to return to Kilmoyley to win a championship with his home club in 1971, scoring in all the games that year. He then got involved in underage and helped to club to Féile na nGael success in 1974, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1981, 1983 and 1987.

As well as Denis, the 1991 All-Ireland Féile na Gael winning team were also honoured on the night.

Senior club player of the year went to Daniel Collins, while David Ryan received the club Intermediate Player of the Year award. The Intermediate team also collected their North Kerry junior league medals.
