Happy Birthday to us: 
This week 6 years ago an ambitious group came together with a plan to form a juvenile hurling club in the town of Tralee. Starting with an U13 boys team in 2012 we now have under 6 to minor hurling teams and U8 to U17 camogie teams, close to 250 boys and girls hurling around 50 coaches and a huge amount of volunteers.

Thanks to Rory Kerins Of Pro-Plan Property management who has been Parnells main sponsor for 6 years and to all the other businesses that have contributed over the years.  Well done to all involved and keep driving on because were only getting started.

Scór na bPáistí County Finals: 
Parnells was represented in the Scór na bPáistí County Finals last Sunday in Foilmore. Peter Doyle, Jessica McGibney, Cathal Fitzgerald and Sean Michael Redican did Parnells proud and wore their club colours proudly. South Kerry won the medals but our musicians were still smiling after the results.

Scór officer Ger Reidy was delighted with all the Scór participants in 2018 who competed in storytelling, solo singing, Leiriu, Music, and quiz. Ger is encouraging more Parnells players to participate in 2019. We might even encourage you to participate in Scór  na nÓg, and Scór an Sinsear. Parnells Abú.

Good luck to Tralee Parnells who now face Lixnaw Tuesday in a semi-final of NK-B.

The John West Féile na nGael and Féile Peile na nÓg competitions are national festivals for Gaelic football, Ladies Gaelic football, Handball, Hurling, Camogie and Rounders played at Under 14 level involving both national and International teams.

The highly-anticipated competition gives up-and-coming GAA superstars the chance to participate and play in their respective John West Féile tournaments, at a level which suits their age, skills and strengths.

This is the third year that John West will sponsor the underage tournament, which is the biggest competition of its kind in Europe.

Throughout its sponsorship of the Féile, John West has focused on encouraging children to participate in Gaelic Games while emphasising the importance natural protein plays in fuelling a young athlete.

Speaking at the announcement, John West General Manager Peter Rooney said: “We are delighted to continue our Féile sponsorship into 2018. The Féile competitions are such unique events and we in John West feel privileged to be a part of them. They hold a special place in our calendar and are something that the whole company really looks forward to, year on year.”

“The Féile competitions highlight the importance of sport in children’s lives and this is something that John West is truly passionate about. We pride ourselves on supporting children who are playing and taking part in sports and make a continuous and conscious effort to highlight the importance of continuing to play into their teenage and adult years. Alongside this, the Féile competitions give us the opportunity to highlight the importance of protein in our children’s diets, and the range of John West products created to support active families in a contemporary way whilst consistently delivering the health benefits of fish.”
