North Kerry U21 Hurling Championship
Tralee Parnells will play Crotta ONeills in the North Kerry U21 Hurling Championship final next weekend.

Throw-in will be at 2pm on Saturday 22nd at Crotta ONeills in Dromakee. After wins over Ballyduff and Ballyheigue last year the players have been busy training over the winter in anticipation of the final. We wish the team and management the very best of luck.  We urge all club members to come out and support the team in what promises to be a cracking game.

Every Step Counts
The Every Step Counts Challenge will start on Wednesday of this week until the 23rd February.  Like last year, the aim is to collectively cover four thousand kilometres as the club will then be entered into a provincial draw for three O’Neills vouchers for the club (€2,500, €1,500 & €1,000). This year the challenge will run for just four weeks so we need as many participants as possible to ensure that we hit that target.

Steps are tracked through the Irish Life, MyLife app, which is free to download. The app can be linked to fitness tracking apps like Fitbit…etc. Join the Munster GAA Challenge under the Challenges option in the app and select Tralee Parnells.

While users of the Irish Life app must be aged 18 and over, we would really like to see all the family getting involved.   Remember to follow the most recent Government Covid-19 regulations at all times while undertaking activities.

Last Man Standing  

After a great response to the last man standing competition, we can confirm that the winner will receive €500 in cash.  Keep an eye on Facebook where David will post updates on the competition.

Camogie, a Sport for Life

The World Health Organisation define health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.

The Well-being Institute at the University of Cambridge refers to well-being as “the positive and sustainable characteristics which enable individuals and organisations to thrive and flourish”. It is clear from these definitions that both health and well-being are interlinked, and it is appropriate to treat them as such.

There is strong evidence to support the multiple benefits of sport and physical activity. The Camogie Association recognises the great contribution it can make to enhance the health and well-being of our members.

Physical activity has been proven to promote healthy growth and development in children and young people. It contributes to cognitive function. It is important for healthy ageing and helps to maintain quality of life and independence when we grow older. It is also a preventative factor for many diseases.

Congratulations to Na Gaeil and especially to our club members on winning the Intermediate Munster club football final.  We wish the team all the best in the semi-final.
