Kerry U13 Camogie at Mallow:

Well done the Kerry Under 13s Saturday at the Mallow Coaching Blitz.  Many thanks to Riobáird Lotty organiser and all the excellent coaches and volunteers who gave their time to this very worthwhile day of Camogie development.

It was great to see the Tralee Parnells Camogie players holding their own and getting to know their intercounty team mates in advance of the 2019 under 14 season.  Well done and keep up the good work Ailisha Daughton, Caoilinn Hickey, Lana O’Connell, Gráinne Leahy, Alice O’Connell, Hannah Stewart. Special congratulations to Lana, the only under 12 from Tralee, who scored two goals for Kerry, in the 3 afternoon matches following the morning of coaching sessions.

County Board U19 Hurling Blitz:
Patrice and the ITT hurling club organised a second 3-way blitz with Parnells and ITT freshers.  A good chance for players to get some game time, it repeated again this week.  Great to see a stronger turnout Tuesday.  Well done running Crotta close and getting over ITT Freshers the second week of asking.  Repeats again this coming week.

Tralee Parnells Camogie are doing their bit to aid the campaign aiming to increase attendance, coverage and participation for women’s sport by 20% by 2020.  See further details online.
