Under 14 Camogie County Final:
Tralee Parnells Under 14s took on Killarney in the B County Final on Sunday the 22nd  This was a close and well matched affair, with little to separate the teams for most of the match.  Midway through the first half Killarney scored 2 goals, one passed through the forwards and another from a high ball that found the top of the net.  Tralee fount back well and got the scores to set up an exciting finish, where Killarney were ahead by a single point with a few minutes to go.  Parnells attacked repeatedly, but could not find the leveling score and Killarney at the other end got the vital couple of points to secure their victory and claim the title.  Well played all the Tralee Parnells players, this season was a good one for the development of the squad with the great excitement and great games during Féile and all the matches played all season.  That experience will stand to both those who will be over 14 next season and moving up to under 16s, as well as the younger members of the team who will be leading the charge at this grade in 2020.

Tralee Parnells play in the Tom Healy Memorial Tournament, Wed Oct 9, carpool from Caherslee 6 PM.

Some of the other juvenile clubs in Kerry have been watching the progress of Camogie development in Kerry in 2019 and want to follow our lead by fielding Junior teams as soon as they can muster numbers.  Both Causeway and  CillArd will both field teams at the tournament. IT Tralee Camogie  will also play. There will be a meet and greet afterwards in the clubhouse.
