Sympathy to the Harnett Family

We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Dee Harnett of Kilconlea who passed away last week.

Dee played for Knocknagoshel winning county titles in 1986 and 1987. He was a great character and will be sadly missed by his many former teammates and friends in Knocknagoshel.

The yearly ticket allows you the opportunity to be in each monthly draw for the entire year.

This is a huge part of our club’s funding for the year and we ask for your support of our lotto. The jackpot for our lotto currently stands at €6,600. If your not in you can’t win.

Good Wishes to John Bell

We wish a speedy recovery to John Bell who picked up an injury recently while playing for the club. John had a great year on the playing field this year and represented the club on the Kerry North Under 15 team. We hope to see John fit and well again by the new year.
