GAA Round-Up – Silverware for Brosna

Silverware arrived to Brosna in the form of the trophy for the North Kerry Junior League Division 4 Final. 

A lifeguard would have been a better accessory in Moyvane last Friday than a referee as monsoon conditions prevailed for the entire game. 

The fortunes of Brosna and their opponents, Ballylongford, flowed in and out like a tide throughout the game. 

Brosna got off to a strong start but then lost momentum with Ballylongford drilling a barrage of goals into the net.

A steadying chat at half-time and the introduction of a few subs gave Brosna the edge they needed in the second half to claw back the lead.

The final kick of the game delivered the one point that Brosna needed to bring home the trophy.  Popular elder statesman,

accepted the cup on behalf of his team from Chairman of North Kerry  Board, Johnny Stack.  

Special mention to the wives, partners and mothers of the players who will have their work cut out for them getting those football boots dry.


The Brosna/Knock girls showed great grit and determination to secure a one point win over Dingle on Sunday.

Their recent promotion from Division 5 to Division 3 has meant that the standard of their opposition is much higher.

The fearless team has shown great inner strength and resources to rise to the occasion. Well done.

Rain Rain Go To Spain

This must be the wettest August in living memory.

So disappointing for everyone trying to wring the best out of home grown holidays. Perhaps we need to just push on and make the best of it.

I recall an old advertising poster for Nike sportswear that said ‘There’s no such thing as wrong weather, only wrong clothing.’ 

Pull on those rain jackets, wellies and hats and get out and about.

The summer might not look like summer right now but there’s nothing to stop us making the very best of it.
