Field of Dreams
In the past week, our GAA grounds have been used by the Kerry minors and Kerry U-16 ladies for inter-county challenge games against Limerick.
It’s a tribute to the standard of our pitch that it is in such high demand for outside games. A lot of compliments were made on Sunday by the visiting management of both the Kerry and Limerick teams.
Once the club-house is renovated and extended we will be able to offer an unparalleled level of service to our visitors and our own home-grown talent.
We should be rightly proud of our parish.
We have set a high standard throughout the village, church and GAA grounds. We are flourishing thanks to the hands-on interest each citizen takes in the maintenance of their homes. Well done!
Green and Gold Day for Aimee
It was wonderful to see Aimee Woods of Duagh GAA Club and daughter of our very own Emily Woods take to the pitch in her green and gold jersey on Sunday.
She joined a panel of 36 amazing young women who make up a potent and talented Kerry LGFA U-16 side.
They secured a win over an equally determined Limerick side. The heavenly weather was the cherry on the cake for what was a most entertaining afternoon. Many thanks to all of the visiting parents and management who generously supported our car raffle and local lotto.
Tickets are available locally at Murphy’s Foodstore or online through www.brosnagaa.ie.
Thank You to Festival Organisers
A big thank you to Shelagh O’Connor, Peter Middleton and the Con Curtin committee who put together a wonderful virtual festival of music, song, history and storytelling.
The concerts that book-ended the festival on Friday and Sunday showcased the talents of so many musicians and performers.
The workshops, conducted over Zoom, had participants join from as far away as Korea and Alaska. How international is that? It’s great to see such an interest in our traditional arts. Con Curtin would be proud.
