Parnells Adult Camogie Debut:
This week we remember another fantastic club milestone when our adult camogie team played in their first competitive match.

The following extracts should refresh memories of this great occasion when the team attended the Kerry Adult Camogie Invitational Blitz at the Kerry GAA Centre of Excellence, Currans on Sunday the 28th of April 2019.  Teams from Cork, Clare and Kerry played a series of round robins, followed by cup, shield and plate finals. After some well contested group games, Inagh-Kilnamona met St Vincents in the cup final, Newtownshandrum of Cork played Causeway-Cillard in the shield final, while Tralee Parnells and Kilkee-Bealaha faced off in the plate final.

The contestants for the plate are both newcomers to adult camogie and Sunday was the first ever competitive outing by Tralee Parnells as an adult camogie team.  Their opposition Kilkee-Bealaha did not let their relative inexperience take from their enjoyment of the game and they contested strongly with Tralee Parnells who had the best of the scoring in the opening half.

Kilkee-Bealaha took their own scores in the second half, leading to huge cheers from their followers and great celebrations among the players.  At the final whistle Tralee Parnells had a narrow lead that gave them the plate trophy, but it is fair to say both sides enjoyed the tussle immensely.

Well done to the adults and teenagers over 16s who played for our first ever competitive matches as an adult camogie club, in three very competitive games.  Our squad on the day had a great blend of experience, youth and newcomer enthusiasm and it was great to see all the gym and on-field preparation this year come together, as the players worked for and encouraged each other and put in a superb effort throughout the tournament.

Some of our members who have been training with us could not make it on the day, but not to worry, no doubt this is just the first of many outings for this squad.

A reminder to everybody that registration is open and this year we are using the Clubforce application.  Registration can be renewed at or by downloading the App.

If you already have the app you just need to add Tralee Parnells as another club.  We would appreciate if everybody could renew their membership as soon as possible to allow us to switch to using Clubforce for easier handling of the health questionnaire and team messaging.  Once registered, members should download the App and ensure that notifications are enabled.  More news will follow in the coming weeks.
