Kerins O’Rahillys’ 10k/5k run and walk was held on Sunday last and was a great success again this year.

The event, now in it’s fifth year, honoured well-known clubman Francie Quill.  Francie’s contribution was truly recognised by the big turnout which exceeded 300 entrants.

The club would like to thank all those who participated, along with those who supported, planned and organised a truly enjoyable day in Strand Road.  The event was in held in association with PRO-PLAN Property Management Ltd and is an important fundraiser for the club.

Our AGM was held in The Healy Room last Friday. Thank you to everyone who attended.  Our players, coaches, parents and supporters were thanked for all their effort, hard work and support throughout 2018.

Edmond and Maurice were thanked – without their help and cooperation there would have been no pitches for us. Best of luck to Edmond in his new ventures.  James, Christena and Frank were also thanked for always being there to guide us.

Finally, we have to thank our girls who are hardworking, committed, talented, tenacious, good humoured and most importantly have made friends for life in our club. Being involved in sport at this time in their lives is vital and sets the tone for the many challenges in life.   Best of luck for 2019.

We are recruiting for 2019. If you would like further information phone or text Shirley (086) 8713552. All welcome!

·         Club Chairman, Haulie Kerins, denies that there was a lot of money staked on a “100-yard dash” between himself and PRO, Ger O’Brien, at the club’s 10k run on Sunday last.

·         Is Mike Mangan “acting the CEO?”

·         Congrats to Senior player, Gavin O’Brien, who made his debut for Kerry in the victory over Tyrone in the National League on Sunday last.

·         Gavin also assisted CIT in their Sigerson Cup clash with IT Carlow earlier in the week.

·         Senior player Jack Savage was in form for the IT Tralee in their big win over IT Sligo which saw the Kerry college secure a Round 3 encounter with St Mary’s College Belfast.
