Féile Fever Hits Tralee:

The Parnells Féile squad

After the great experience of our boys at the 2017 hurling Féile in Carlow and Leinster, followed by our girls at the 2018 camogie Féile in Galway and Connaught, the excitement is now palpable looking forward to both our hurling and camogie squads participating as host teams for Féile 2019 in Kerry and Cork.
This coming weekend we will welcome our guest hurling and camogie visiting clubs from Tyrone and Monaghan.  it will be an action packed weekend and we hope that like the previous two years at Féile, this one too will give our young players memories to treasure for a lifetime.

Follow online, John West Féile na nGael 2019.

Welcome  Eire Og Carrickmore and Castleblayney to Tralee.

With Féile na Gael 2019 hurling and Camogie fast approaching we are looking forward to hosting Eire Og Carrickmore of Tyrone and Castleblayney of Monaghan. Promises to a great Féile 2019 weekend over the 7th to 9th of June.

Hurling County  League 2A Men:

Well done to Kilgarvan on their win in Round 2 of the County league, definitely wont be another 100 years before we meet again.  Good write-up on Kilgarvan social media.

SHL DIV 2a Tralee Parnells 1-08  Kilgarvan 2-11.

The last time Kilgarvan and Tralee Parnells met in a senior hurling match was 100 years ago in 1919, on that occasion Parnells were victorious, that’s wasn’t the case this evening! On a wet evening in Cahersalee, Kilgarvan after a 100 year wait were deserving winners. The teams were level at half time 1-06 apiece. Great team work and defending in slippy conditions kept Parnells to just scoring 2 points in the second half. Kilgarvan were on scoring form and were outright winners on a score of 2-11 to 1-08. Well done to all players and mentors!#CillGharbhainAbu

South Kerry Hurling League:

Tralee Parnells Hurling and Camogie Club men faced a stern test at  Dr. Crokes in Killarney Wednesday in the South Kerry Hurling League.

Parnells Men at Crokes:

Nice gesture from Dr. Crokes GAA hurlers to give Tralee Parnells Hurling & Camogie Club a guard of honour to mark their first time taking to the field at Lewis Road, Killarney.

Hard luck to our Intermediates who lost Dr Crokes in this round 1 of the County League Div 2. Good competitive game of hurling and a great effort from our lads.  Should probably have been ahead at the interval, of some good goal chances were taken more clinically.  A stronger bench from the home side saw them open up a lead in a game with plenty scores.  Despite Paul Daly blasting a close in free to the net and Parnells securing a final goal late on, the fresh legs on the side of the hosts helped make the difference in the end.  Final score, Dr Crokes 3-17 to Tralee Parnells 2 -14

Adult Teams Launch Night:

Under 6:

Well done to Orla O’Connor who got won the Under 6 player of the week. Thats two weeks in a row for Listellick Primary school kids.

Under 8 Boys:

Well done to Max Fitzgibbon our Under 8 boys player of the week.

Under 11 Boys:

Our under 11 boys were involved in a cracking game against Kilmoyley Friday evening in the last round of the North Kerry U11 league. Great goals and points were scored by both teams and the game was nip and tick until the last few minutes. The class of No 9 for Kilmoyley was the difference in the end and he got the home team over the line with a few well taken goals.
Final score Kilmoyley 7-06 Tralee Parnells 4-06.
