Tralee Parnells CrestScór na bPáistí Quiz Night:

Well done to all the primary school age children who took part in the in-club event held to form our quiz team for Scór na bPáistí. As a treat for all the participants before we kicked off, the Tralee Parnells Grúpa Cheoil gave us an impromptu performance.

Best of luck to all our contestants in both the Quiz and Music Group at the upcoming Kerry Scór competition. On the night the trophy for best quiz score was awarded to Katie Dwyer, presented by Parnells Chairperson Dermot Reen.

The multi-talented Katie also participates in our Music Group on accordion and is a stalwart in defense among our Camogie players. Ger Reidy on behalf of the Tralee Parnells Scór Committee thanked parents for bringing along the children to compete in our inaugural Tralee Parnells Scór na bPáistí Quiz.

As this will be an annual event, our Scór Committee would like to receive any feedback our members and supporters may have on the quiz.

Selected on the night for Parnells team were Alesha Daughton, Anna Kerdzia, Edward Sheehy, Darragh Maloney, Donnacha Buttimer and Katie Dwyer. Katie is the “Tralee Parnells Scór na bPáistí Champion 2016”.

This panel will now prepare for the County Finals on April 17th. Thanks to all who participated in the quiz, see you all again next year.

Well Done Kerry Hurlers:

Former Parnells coach and long time champion of hurling development John Tweek Griffin put in an impressive performance on Sunday for the Kerry hurlers against Limerick in Killarney.  Great to see Parnells players in the stand watching the seniors and hopefully taking notes.

World Irish dancing championships:

Best of luck to Cian Cronin who is busy preparing for the world Irish dancing championships in Glasgow in March. Cian has been playing with Parnells for a number of years and moves up from under 13s to under 14s this year.

Welcome to Parnells:

On the first night of training for our teenagers last Friday night in Caherslee, Parnells chairperson Dermot Reen was delighted to welcome Clare native Ollie Broughton to our coaching ranks.  After a concentrated skills session Ollie gave the players a brief recap on the hundreds of ball touches each player got by doing the drills and emphasised the importance of ball work when it comes to first touch.

Thank You Volunteers:

It was very impressive to see the results of the volunteer efforts in the extremely practical storage bins that have been fitted out in our equipment storage facility at Caherslee.  Well done to Richard McCluskey who came up with this great idea, persuaded Boyle’s Hardware to generously sponsor the materials and also organised volunteer labour to deliver the work.

Marchers Wanted:

Parnells would like to have some of our players demonstrating their hurling skills as we march along in the Tralee St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Thursday the 17th of March. Please contact club officers if you are available to bring along your hurley and sliotar to show boys and girls along the route some of the things that our club is all about.
