Tadhg First From Parnells in Kerry Seniors Hurlers Debut: 
Fantastic news midweek saw Parnells Tadhg Brick named on the bench for the Kerry seniors hurlers in their national league game against Meath.  Not bad going for a fella yet to play a club senior hurling game.

Coming on in the second half with a remit around the middle third from the management, Tadhg  was part of a Kerry performance that strengthened hugely in the second half.

Tadhg started with Parnells as a young teenager and played with us on the combined Abbeydorney-Parnells panel that narrowly lost the 2107 Kerry Minor County Final.

Sunday marked another first for Parnells who finally start as a senior hurling club in 2019, after several years of preparation with our underage teams.

Great ambassador for Kerry GAA:
Shane Conway from Kerry Hurling was the man in demand after Conor Browne had lifted the Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup.
‘He has his own little escort,’ said one of the many Lixnaw folk in the crowd.
The Lixnaw gem belted out ‘Olé, Olé, Olé’ with his teammates, he cheered on captain Conor Browne’s brilliant winning speech but through it all, the people he really wanted to chat to were the group of glowing Kerry faces taking over the side of the WIT field.
And when he eventually made it back to them, young and old they queued up for photos, they patted him on the back, they told him how proud they were of him and he, he really couldn’t have looked much happier.
This was the 30 strong Lixnaw fan club who made the three hour journey across the country to Waterford to support their man in the Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup final for UCC against Mary I on Saturday afternoon.
He didn’t disappoint, scoring six points in another fine display.
“There aren’t too many Fitzgibbon Cup medals around any county, they’re very hard to come by. It’s a serious competition, so I’m just delighted to have won it”.
