Record Numbers at Very Successful Tralee Parnells Cúl Camp:

Our week of daily Cúl Camp training sessions at Caherslee GAA grounds saw record attendances with over 100 youngsters registered.  This is a great omen for the ongoing growth and development of camogie and hurling in our club and in the greater Tralee area. Congratulations and well done to the GDAs Colm, Giles and all the coaches for running another excellent camp.

Super all round performance Saturday by our team who played Ballyduff , ably captained by Alex O’Flaherty, we were assisted today by four younger players a special thanks to Conor, Dara, Micheal & Ryan for their help.  Well done all.  Our other U11 team played St. Brendans, it was a great performance, they battled hard, fought for every score and showed pride in their jersey, ably led by Thomas Murphy, team captain. These tough games are what improve us.

Under 13 Boys Hurling:

Tralee Parnells played the final round of the Division 1 U13 County Under League Tuesday evening away to Ballyduff. The holidays season once again impacted on numbers with Parnells having the bare 15 players available. While much of the game was played between the two 45s, the home team lead from early on and dominated the first half scoring. Despite a promising 3rd quarter rally from Parnells, the home team pulled away in the final quarter with a flurry of goals  The Final score was Ballyduff 10-09 Tralee Parnells 3-5. The boys fought all the way to the end and never gave in.

Under 14 Kerry Camogie:

Absolutely fantastic win for Kerry U14s Sunday v Laois final score 9-5 to 4-3. So proud of the Kerry team  and especially our Tralee Parnells players.

Under 14 Kerry Hurlers:

Well done to our U14s that represented Kerry Saturday vs Clare in Rathmore. The Green and Gold team had a great 2 point win. Well done to Tomas O’Connell, Cian Harris, Will Somers, Dan Maloney, Eoghan Costello and Liam O’Connell.

Under 15 Boys Hurling:

Tralee Parnells U15s completed their 2021 Feile campaign with a semi-final loss to St. Brendans in Ardfert last Thursday evening. As with many of their matches this year, the team was short a number of regulars, but the team that lined out did themselves proud. There was a strong wind blowing straight down the pitch and it favoured St. Brendans in the first half. This enabled them to race into an early lead, despite some great defending from the Parnells lads. The margin at half time could have been much greater only for some great hooking and blocking and some good goalkeeping by Cian Harris. Dan Maloney fulfilled his sweeper role excellently, making some important interceptions and making himself available for puck-outs. Despite the strong breeze, the Parnells forwards took their chances when they came and some great interplay led to some lovely points from play, notably from Tomas O’Connell and Eoghan Costello. The second half was far from one-way traffic and again the defensive effort was excellent, with some outstanding work by Sean Michael Redican, Cian Hennessy  and Conor Dennehy. The boys took their chances when they came, led by captain fantastic Andrew Kerins, but unfortunately the goal they deserved just wouldn’t come. A strong St. Brendans side did keep the scoreboard ticking over and pulled away in the end, but they knew they had been in a game. This is a very young side, with over half the team that lined out still U14, which bodes very well for next year. Final score: Tralee Parnells 0-10 St. Brendans 6-16

Under 16 Kerry Hurlers:

Well played Tralee Parnells hurlers Colm Brown and Rory Reen, losing out to Clare u16s by a single point Saturday morning in Rathkeale.

Minor Camogie County League:

Best of luck to Tralee Parnells minors who take on Causeway in Caherslee Monday on the County Camogie Minor League.

Kerry Minor Camogie:

Good to see the strong shift put in by the Parnells contingent against Meath in the All Ireland Minor Camogie B final at Crotta Sunday. Katie Dwyer was strong at full back, clearing ball after ball and always alert to any danger. Saoirse Maloney and Ilona Sheehan were busy in the forwards too as Kerry tried to close the gap on Meath. In a finely balanced first quarter there was nothing to separate the teams and the first water break the 3 points all scoreline showed it was anybody’s game at that point. Meath had very fit and mobile players and opened up a gap by half time.  However the undaunted home side worked very hard in the 3rd quarter and reeled it in to a 2 point gap at the 2nd water break.  However, the superior running and movement of the visitors proved too hard to stay with and it was Meath who secured the next few scores ended up winners.   No shortage of effort in the Kerry ranks though and they can look back at the game knowing they left it all out on the field on the day

Intermediate Hurling:

Good luck Tralee Parnells who play St Brendans Ardfert Tuesday in the County Intermediate.


Tralee Parnells Hurling and Camogie Club would like to express our very deepest sympathies to Danielle and Des Griffin and family on their bereavement.  RIP.
