Keep Active
As this period of uncertainty continues, it is still unclear when we will all return to the playing fields.

While we do our bit for the country by staying at home, it is very important that we all stay fit and healthy by getting as much exercise as possible in the environs of our homes.

Hopefully, in this fine weather, all the goalposts have been erected in gardens around Tralee. But if not, don’t worry, all you need is a ball, a hurley and a wall.

Pick a skill or skills and keep practicing until you are happy that you have improved. Set yourself a time limit to practice the drill or skill. Then move on to another skill. If you are unsure of what to practice, there are some great tips on various social media channels such as hurling365, Coaching The GAAme and

Kerry GAA Skills
Over the next few weeks, Kerry GAA Coaching & Games plan to send out some video clips of some of the Kerry Senior Hurlers demonstrating the skills of Hurling. On these clips, the players will provide a demonstration and go through the teaching points of the various skills. The players will also give advice on how they practice their skills. The aim is to encourage players to practice the skills and get players confident in their ability. Hopefully it will provide a bit of distraction for our young Parnells players. Follow Kerry GAA Coaching & Games on social media (@CoachingKerry on Twitter).

Club membership and registration remains open and we encourage anyone that hasn’t registered yet to do so online, as all players will need to be registered before they will be permitted to play competitive matches when activities do resume. Contact the management team of your age group for further details.

Community Support
The COVID-19 outbreak is a challenge for individuals and communities across Ireland. In these exceptional circumstances, all community members have a role to play in helping those who need extra support.

Standard supports offered by the government and volunteer groups may become temporarily unavailable during the COVID-19 outbreak. Communities need to come together and use their people power to fill any gaps in the services vulnerable people rely on.

If you can help those who need support in your community, please contact your local Volunteer Centre or Volunteer Information Service. Contact details are available on You do not need any healthcare experience to be a volunteer — there are many non-health roles to fill, such as shopping or collecting prescriptions for people with limited mobility.
