Best of luck to Ellen O’Donoghue,Causeway who will represent Kerry in the National Feile Skills Star Challenge. This will take place on Saturday, June 23rd in the National Games Development Centre in Abbotstown, Dublin.

Under 16 Boys:
Defeat for Parnells in the U16 championship last week against Kilmoyley.  The match finished level at full time but a heap of goals by Kilmoyley in extra time saw them over the line.

Blast from the not so distant past:
4 years ago this week Parnells Brian Lonergan came 4th in the overall National Féile Skills competition and won the Christy Ring section of the competition in Armagh.  Great kid and a serious athlete who has represented Kerry in Hurling, Football and Soccer. This week he lined out in goals for the Kerry U20 footballers.
