There were excellent scenes of public jubilation to mark the Tralee Parnells Hurling & Camogie Club combined official launches of our Club Strategic Plan and our Healthy Clubs Initiative.   Visit our Facebook page at
to see photos and also some lovely video clips of young and not so young participating in the energetic Zumba set, put on by the inspirational DJ Nat.  Thanks to Mike McGrath who provided the mobile platform on the night.
Camogie Blitz in Thurles:

Our under 12 girls are looking forward to competing on the Camán to Thurles Camogie Blitz on Saturday the 14th of May.  The oldest girls who traveled last year have moved up to under 13/14, so this is a chance for some of the younger players to make their mark.
Under 6 and 8s trip to Abbeydorney:

First game of the year for our Under 6’s and 8’s this coming Friday 13 May in Abbeydorney. Players should be in Abbeydorney at 6.30 pm and the mayhem will start at 6.45 pm.  Kids need to train for this at home and sleep with their hurleys every night. Saying the hurlers prayer each night is optional.
Big week for U10 boys:

A big week is in prospect for our under 10 boys.  Wednesday 11th we play in a South Kerry blitz in Firies and then next Saturday 14th we welcome St Vincent’s from Dublin to Caherslee for what should be a fantastic morning of hurling.
Tralee Parnells Club Strategic Plan:

The Tralee Parnells Club Strategic Plan includes a section on our Healthy Clubs Initiative.  The theme of this initiative is Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, Healthy Club.  Parnells are one of just 60 clubs in Ireland taking part in this Healthy Clubs Initiative and are the first club in Kerry to sign up for this excellent programme.  To get an electronic copy of the Club Strategic Plan, simply send an email to and request a copy.
GAA 15, Standardised Warm-Up:

The Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee in conjunction with a working group comprising of experts including Dr. Catherine Blake, Prof. Niall Moyna and Dr. Kieran Moran have developed the GAA 15, a standardised warm-up programme aimed at reducing the number of injuries sustained by GAA players. Oisín McConville speaks about how Ulster Club Champions Crossmaglen Rangers have benefited from using and adapting the GAA 15/Activate Warm-up as part of their training sessions. The programme, including video tutorials on the exercises involved is available at the following link: and
