Parnells Men Earn A Draw in Historic First Home Game:

A huge thank you to St. Brendan’s Hurling Club from Tralee Parnells Hurling and Camogie Club for the kind words on your social media.

North Kerry Hurling Board Intermediate Lg.

St. Brendan’s 1:8(11)

Tralee Parnells 1:8(11)

Full Time
An historic night in Caherslee for Tralee Parnells Hurling and Camogie Club; they put our Intermediates under severe pressure ; the teams finished level on 1-8 all.

Tralee Parnells underage hurlers provided a Guard of Honour for both teams who were led onto the pitch by a lone piper. Parnells Club President Mícheál Kerins at 88 years of age fronted the parade; it’s worth remembering that his son Mike (FBD) played his Club hurling with St. Brendan’s.

Tralee Parnells Chairman Dermot Reen also spoke of the long standing friendship with St. Brendan’s ; in recognition of the historic nights match he presented Jeremiah Clifford (on behalf of St. Brendan’s) an inscribed plaque. Well done to both teams supporters who braved the cold tonight; we hope that Tralee Parnells will continue  to grow and flourish.

Parnells Women First Fixture:

From small acorns do mighty oaks grow.  This Monday 15th of April will see the first Tralee Camogie team to take part in a match for a number of decades.  We have had great reports of the first Monday night Camogie fixtures and now it is time for the over 16s to join the fray.

Training Friday night was lively, with a buzz among the panel at the prospect of finally getting a game as a Tralee side.  We wish these players the very best, both on Monday and on into their future in Tralee Camogie.

Well Done Kerry Camogie Minors:

Great comeback by Kerry Minor Camogie Team in the second half of the All-Ireland Minor C Camogie Championship Semi-Final. Having trailed by 1-4 to 0-1 at halftime, they put in a storming second half to defeat Mayo on a scoreline of 2-6 to 1-5.  Parnells were delighted to have our Clodagh Begley start in goals and our under 17 Lia O’Connell on the travelling county panel.

Under 12 Boys:
Our two U12 boys teams were in action against Kenmare/Kilgarvan in Caherslee yesterday evening. The Div 1 team had a tough battle but a goal from William Sheerin in the last few mins got them over the line. Final score 4-01 3-02. Young Sheerins performance in midfield was possibly the best seen from a Parnells hurler in Caherslee for a long time.
The Div 3 team made up yesterday evening of mostly Under 10 players ran out easy winners against Kenmare/Kilgarvans third team. Good experience for the lads and a first win for many at this level.
