GARVEY’S SUPERVALU SENIOR HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI-FINAL: St. Brendan’s will meet Causeway this Saturday 31st at 6.30pm in Austin Stack Park. This is a big challenge for us again and we hope to meet it head on. All the team panel and management have made a great effort during the last few weeks and we hope to go one step further on Saturday evening. As a Club we are urging everybody to come out and support our local hurlers.
MINOR CO. CHAMPIONSHIP: St. Brendan’s v Abbeydorney/Crotta played the quarter final last Sunday in Ardfert. A sluggish start soon developed into a very one sided win for St. Brendan’s with Cian Hussey to the fore for St. Brendan’s and Michael O Leary the main man for the Abbeydorney/Crotta combination. The half time score was 3-9 to 0-7 and St. Brendan’s finished with 4-22 to Abbeydorney’s 2-9. Thanks to all who helped with field preparation, gate collection, scoreboard operators etc. We are now preparing for a semi-final position and it’s great to have both seniors and minors in the Kerry Co. Championship semi-finals, and all the support on Sunday was most appreciated. NK U-13
B CHAMPIONSHIP: St. Brendan’s were defeated Tralee Parnell’s last Friday evening in Tralee 7-2- to 1-2
NK U-14 B CHAMPIONSHIP: U-14’s were unlucky to lose to Lixnaw last week 4-8 to 2-13 after a great effort.
