Parents Mystery Tour 2015:
Interest is growing in the 2015 mystery bus tour. For any parents who have not taken part before, this is an excellent chance to meet coaches and other parents on an informal evening.

We we visit a hostelry at a mystery location, with maybe a few noble calls for a bar of a song and a bit of finger food to go along with the conversation. Places on Friday 13th Nov limited to the first 30 people to contact John Palmer on 087 225 8894.

Under 10 and older Awards Night:
A very enjoyable under 10 and older Awards Night was held for players and parents, at Kerins O’Rahillys on Friday the 23rd of October.

Our VIP invited guests, Kerry Hurlers captain John Griffin and Kerry Camogie captain Michelle Costello, were both generous enough to share words of wisdom and encouragement with the players attending the awards night.

Both Michelle and John spoke of the recent successes of their teams and emphasised the important roles underage coaching, development and dedication play.

It was a great honour for Parnells to have these sporting heros present as such positive role models for the youngsters. On the night the Camogie mentors recognised the following players for special mention. Under 10 Camogie awards, Most Improved Player Jessica O’Loughlin, Best Team Player Danielle Griffin, Best Newcomer Aoife Foran, Best Newcomer Caoimhe Lyons. Under 12 Camogie awards, Best Newcomers Joint Award Anna Kerdzaia and Caoimhe Lyons, Most Improved Player Aoife O’Sullivan, Best Team Player Clodagh O’Sullivan. Under 14 Camogie awards, Best Newcomer Sarah Barrett, Most Improved Player Ruth O’Connell, Best Team Player Yasmine Sultan. Congratulations and well done girls, keep up the good work.

The coming 2016 season:
Parnells will, over the winter period, be putting together management and coaching panels for the upcoming 2016 season.

If you know of any players or former players who would be willing to volunteer an hour on Friday nights, please contact any Parnells club officer. Of course, we need not just people with hurling experience.

Any mom or dad who would be willing to help with getting gear organised for new players at training, or to help out in any other capacity, please don’t be shy.

As our chairman said at the recent awards night, the fantastic skillful sport of hurling faded away in Tralee once before and it is only the generous volunteering efforts of our families and supporters that can prevent this from happening again.
