Successful Parnells Easter Camp:
Close to 50 kids took part in day 1 of our Easter camp, great to see the kids enjoying themselves with 3 hours of hurling and camogie. There was a number of new players trying it for the first time and it proves there is still great talent out there.  Well done to the Parnells coaches and organisers.  This is our first ever Easter Camp, but the great positive feedback suggests it is definitely not the last.

Under 10 exhibition:
Parnells under 10’s will play an exhibition game at halftime of the Kerry v Laois senior hurling game Saturday week April 2nd in Austin Stack Park (throw in 5 pm for Kerry game).  This is one of the biggest games for Kerry hurling in recent years and its a great opportunity for our players to show off their skills in front of a few thousand people.  Please let team manager Ger Donnellan know the availability of your little hurler.

Tokens for Parnells club:
Can all Parnells parents start collecting Lee Strand Protein+ Milk. 15 sports promotion tokens will give Parnells club 5 hurling sliotars worth €60.

Tralee St. Patrick’s Day Parade:
Some more nice great photos on Parnells Blog and Facebook page of our members marching in the Tralee St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
