Come along and join in the fun. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to catch up after the summer.

Practice Makes Perfect

After a number of years reaching the finish line in second position, our very own Sean Murphy of Knockawinna has romped home in first place at the Dingle Marathon this past weekend.

A great honour for Sean and Brosna and testament to the old adage if at first you don’t succeed.  Congratulations.

Rugby Success for Aisling

Aisling Brosnan of Carrigeen took to the rugby pitch for Connaught Rugby in recent weeks.

A brilliant achievement for Aisling, whose home club is Carlow RFC. We will follow your success with Connaught with great interest.

Green and Gold Forever

Best wishes to Tim Murphy and the Kerry Camp heading back to Dublin this weekend.

You take with you all the optimism and belief of your county. Safe travels to all the supporters heading for the M7 this weekend.
