Weekly Notes 1-2-2023
Academy Training
Academy training for the younger age groups continued on Saturday afternoon with a temporary change of venue to the CBS The Green.  The U7s and U9s were on first from 3-4pm and then our U11s and U13s were on from 4-5pm.  With an influx of new players it was a busy and energetic training session. The children finished training as always with competitive matches that were clearly enjoyed by all. Congratulations to this week’s U7 player of the week George Hill, well done George.
The Academy will continue every Saturday 3-4pm (U7s & U9s) and 4-5pm (U11s & U13s) for the next 4 weeks at Kerry Sports Academy at MTU – all new hurlers are welcome. Equipment will be supplied.

The Scór na nÓg competitions will get under way in early March and we’re calling all club musicians to take part and have the honour of representing the club as well as have some fun along the way.  Scór na nÓg is aimed at children attending Secondary school with competitions in various categories including : figure/céilí dancing, solo singing, ballad group, recitation/scéalaíocht, nuachleas/novelty act, instrumental music, set dancing and a table quiz.  If anyone is interested please contact Damien Kissane on 083 0486976.

There is no charge to participate and new people always welcome. For the more energetic amongst us, the club is also encouraging people to participate in the Parkrun that takes place every Saturday morning at 9:30am in Tralee Town Park.

Club Social  

After ten years of hard work and great success, Tralee Parnells are having our very first Annual Social at the Rose Hotel on Saturday 11th February 2023.  This will hopefully be a glamorous and fun filled occasion where we can all celebrate all that has been done and enjoy a night of dining and dancing ‘til late.  We hope that all parents and senior players will come along to support everything that is good about Tralee Parnells, and to dance the night away! Full details are appearing on the Club website and socia media. Tickets at €50 each can be purchased from our Committee Members in the Reception Area of the Rose Hotel between 7p.m. and 9p.m. every Thursday night between now and the Big Night.

All members, as well as non-members, are invited to attend.  It is primarily an adult event, but as special presentations are being made to some underage players then members under the age of 18 are also invited to attendTickets are also available by contacting the organising committee at traleeparnellsgaa@gmail.com or at 085 1355566.

Club PRO

At our recent AGM, the only role that wasn’t filled was that of Hurling Public Relations Officer (PRO). This is a very important role in the club and one that would suit someone who is digitally capable, enjoys writing and is comfortable using Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). If anyone is interested, please contact Chairperson Stephen Buttimer or any member of the Executive. Support will be given from the outgoing PRO and from other members of the Executive.
