Virtual Race Night   The countdown is on to our Virtual Race Night which takes place this coming Friday December 11th. The amount of work put in by our Race Committee is huge so it promises to be an amazing evening’s entertainment. We are appealing to our members, supporters and the wider public to support Na Gaeil CLG at this difficult time by contributing to our Race Night as very many of you have done in the past. Thanks to all of you that have bought a horse already. Buying a horse for €40 will ensure the continued growth and development of the club. You can do this by contacting any club officer or member of the Race committee. You can buy a horse online using the link:

We are asking all the various teams in the club to support this fundraising event. There is a fantastic prize on offer for the team that sells the most horses for the event. They win an exclusive coaching session with Kerry and Na Gaeil stars Jack Barry and Diarmuid O’Connor along with a mystery Kerry footballer.  There are other great prizes on offer too, for the best dressed lady and gent and also for the best dressed family. Thanks to all those that have supported us to date. Time is fast approaching to December 11th so please click into our link and purchase a horse for the big night!

Captain Oisin    We wish Na Gaeil star Oisin Maunsell the very best of luck as he leads out the Kerry Minor team that play Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship on Tuesday, December 15th in Austin Stack Park.

What an honour it is for Oisin, his family. Na Gaeil Club and Abbeydorney Hurling Club to see this young man captain a Kerry Minor team. He is a very modest young man and a great role model for all our young Na Gaeil players. We are very proud of Oisin and wish him the very best of luck.

Sympathy    We extend our sincere sympathy to Donal Leahy and family on the sad passing of his wife Mary during the week.

Donal is the current Vice President of Na Gaeil and is also one of its founding members.

He has worked tirelessly to promote the club over the years and was a very proud man when Na Gaeil were crowned All Ireland Junior Club Champions in Croke Park earlier in the year. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis.

We also offer our sincere condolences to Helen and Denis Sugrue on the sad passing of Helen’s father Paudie Fitzgerald last week.

Paudie of Forge Cross and formerly of The Bridge, Lispole was an accomplished cyclist, winning the Rás Tailteann in 1956. Helen and Denis are very active Na Gaeil members and do trojan work for the club. May he rest in peace.

We extend also our sincere condolences to Kerry, County Board Chairperson, Tim Murphy and family on the recent death of his mother Eileen of Brosna. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis.
