The Under 14s in action.

U14 Boys

Tralee V Bandon

Our u14s welcomed Bandon RFC to Tralee over the weekend. Bandon travelled with over 40 kids which was testament to the work they are doing in West Cork.

Tralee opened their account with a great try by Paddy Lane and converted expertly.  Bandon recovered well and recomposed themselves and gradually skipped up a gear to answer the Tralee boys.  Tralee rose again against a very well structured back line and were very unlucky on two occasions not to score.

Bandon got in again after some great intelligent rugby by the scrum half that had to admired and applauded by all. From here on in Bandon stayed dominant although a ferocious battle was still put up to the visitors.

It was a morning top drawer rugby from both sides and lessons learned for each team.  Tralee knew they were in for a competitive match and they weren’t disappointed. Congratulations to Bandon for the win and we look forward to traveling to you in the New Year.

Sunday 18th November

U16 Boys

Tralee-Listowel V Killorglin

Tralee-Listowel U16s played Killorglin on Sunday in O’Dowd Park, Tralee. Both teams came into the fixture looking for their first competitive win in Conference 2 the Munster U16 Club competition.

The teams were evenly matched, however a break from Oisín Kennelly, who displayed some fancy footwork, produced the first try of the game halfway through the first half. Edward O’Connor converted and the home team held that 7-0 lead at half time.

The second half proved just as enjoyable for the spectators with Mikolaj Buja crashing over after sustained pressure from the pack.

The boys were very focussed in defence as Killorglin battled back and the visitors were rewarded with a consolation try in the last play of the game. Final score 12-5.

We’re playing Corca Dhuibhne away next Saturday at 12pm.

Senior Men’s


Tralee V Charleville

Our Senior Men’s team were unlucky at home to Charleville on Sunday as they went down 34 – 0. While just 8 – 0 down at half time, three consecutive yellow cards, along with injuries to Conor O’Nuailleann and Ben O’Neill allowed Charleville to put their stamp on the game. Tralee showed strong improvements from last week’s loss to Thurles, but it wasn’t enough as Charleville ultimately ran out as comfortable winners
