Mulled wine, carol singing, lots of fabulous stalls with seasonal treats, handmade gifts and accessories.

Don’t do any Christmas shopping until you see the amazing gifts by Irish artisans that you can pick up on your doorstep.

Even if shopping isn’t on your agenda, join the parish festive spirit and launch your Christmas surrounded by friends and neighbours. See you there!

GAA – Go Big or Go Home

Ah, it’s that time of year again where we stand ankle deep in mud on some sideline in North Kerry. 

Our first foray in the North Kerry Championship kicks off at 2.30pm on Saturday 9th November in Mountcoal.

This quarter final sees Brosna meet Finuge. Wishing our team and management the very best in this knock-out competition.

Welcome back to Mike Finnegan who returns to swell the ranks of our valiant squad.

Dear supporters, it’s time to dust off the wellies and mittens as we go to cheer on our team as they march forward to win this elusive trophy.

U-16s Win Again

A big congratulations to the Knock/Brosna/Duagh boys who played  another brilliant game on Sunday winning the Castleisland District League.

A terrific year of victories for this talented side.
