ACADEMY We continued with fun and games on Saturday. Its great to see the improvement in the players since our return. We continue every Saturday with hurling from 10 until 11 and football from 11 until 12 for boys and girls in the Killarney parish. We welcome new members so please bring a friend 

Spring Clean and Gear Exchange: We set up a boot and gear exchange at the academy on Saturday and will continue for the next few Saturday from 10 until 12. We got a great response. If anyone has pre owned boots and playing gear that they have grown out of, that could do with a new home bring them along and exchange them with other academy members. It's good for the household spring clean, it helps out other members and it is good for the environment. We are looking for boots and playing gear. 

LGFA Our Senior ladies travelled to near neighbours Spa earlier today for round 2 of the Donal Curtin Cup. In the absence of many of our regular starters, it was great to see 7 of our Minor girls making their first appearance for the Senior team - well done to Teagan, Sinéad, Katie, Cara, Lara, Leah & Emma.  

The girls secured a comprehensive win. 

Congrats to all of our ladies & management of Colm, Seanie, Justin & Catherine
