Tralee Parnells GAA Club News

Intermediate Championship :
Following our Abbeydorney game, the next competitive fixture is the quarter final against Lady’s Walk  of Ballyduff on Tuesday the 23rd.  In preparation Parnells played a challenge match against Ballyheigue and that game certainly gave us plenty to work on.

After a very shaky first quarter, Parnells made a few switches and steadied the ship a bit.  The game gave the opportunity for panel players to get game time and try different positions.  Some of the panel will be out Monday against St. Brendan’s minors, good luck to them in that fixture.

Huge Parnells 2019 Summer Camp:
A great turnout of over seventy children from age 6 to 14 took part in Parnells Hurling and Camogie Summer Camp in Caherslee GAA grounds.  A great 4 days of skills development and match based training.

Under 12 Boys:
Hard luck Thursday evening for our U12 Div 3 boys in Kenmare, losing on a score of 5-3 to 3-6. This was their final game in the County League. It was a close game and to the boys credit we were in it right up to the end. Heavy rain in the second half made going harder but we had our chances and on other evenings these opportunities would have been converted. A good team display by these younger 12s all in all.

Under 13 Boys:
Our U13s kicked off their NK Championship campaign this evening vs St Brendan’s in Ardfert with a fantastic performance in hurricane like conditions. Having played with the benefit of the strong wind in the 1st half, Parnells raced into a 6 point lead, and finished the half leading by 2.

Our boys faced into the teeth of the wind and heavy rain, but heroic defending made Ardfert work for their scores. No quarter was asked or given but Ardfert ran out eventual winners 4-6 1-4. The initial target for this young team will be to make B semifinals by finishing 2nd or 3rd in the group and try and retain their B title.

Camogie Tradition:
This week 115 years ago – 17 July 1904 – camogie was played in public for the first time at a Feis in Navan, Co. Meath.
The match was between Craobh an Chéitinnigh and Cúchulainns.
As described in contemporaneous newspaper reports, a stick-and-ball game, camogie is almost identical to hurling, but played by women instead of men.
