Kerry minor footballer, Jack O’Sullivan who was on the team which defeated Cork last week.

GAA Glory in a Small Parish

We’re a small parish from a GAA point of view.  We’re not blessed with huge player numbers but what we lack in quantity we make up for in quality. 

The talented and charismatic Jack O’Sullivan of Kilmanihan took centre stage midfield in the green and gold with the Kerry minors last week.

The team performance was electric and they came out of the contest with Cork worthy winners.  We couldn’t be more proud as a parish to have a county talent in our midst again.  

Players don’t just materialise on Kerry teams by magic. It’s a long road of training,commitment and focus by young players. 

It’s hours spent driving and waiting by dedicated and loving parents. We couldn’t be more proud of you, Jack. 

You bring glory to yourself, your family, your jersey and your parish.  Maith an Buachaill.

David Lane, An Ríocht AC is bound for an international meeting in Coventry in August.

Race to the Top

A great success for David Lane at the Kerry County Athletics Championships winning two gold medals in the U-16 100m and 200m sprints for An Riocht. 

David has also been selected to represent Kerry along with 16 other athletes in the International Children’s Games which takes place in Coventry in August.

This is a fantastic opportunity for him to meet and compete against athletes from 32 countries around the world.

Thanks to local businesses Walsh Bros Electrical, Castleisland, Denis Collins Garage, Loughfouder, and The Forestry Company who have kindly sponsored him for the event.

May is The Month of Communions

Congratulations to all of our citizens who have celebrated their communions recently. 

This is an important step in our children’s lives. It’s wonderful that all the restrictions that hampered family get togethers are now lifted and everything from mini marquees to bouncy castles are popping up everywhere. 

Life’s milestones are for celebrating. Let’s cherish every moment.
