Tralee Parnells 1-22 Causeway 2-12
Congratulations to our Senior hurlers who are Division 2 County League champions for 2023 after a convincing win over Causeway in Crotta last Thursday evening. Led by Captain and Man of the Match, Cathal Dunne, who got 2 great points, Parnells built up a big half time lead 0-16 points to 0-5. Causeway came out firing on all cylinders and 2 quick goals had the gap down to 4 points at one stage. However a great goal from Darragh Reen, who finished with 1-3, put some daylight between the sides again. Gearoid O’Doherty (Doc), returning from injury, top scored with 0-14. The lads fought until the end and held out for a great victory – the first silverware for the club at county level.
Congrats to Cian Harris who came 2nd in the County U16 Poc Fada competition in Kerry Head last Wednesday night.
Well done to all the girls who took part in Abbeykilix U11 blitz in Crotta Saturday morning – great skills on display by all the girls and a brilliant morning of Camogie. Thanks to Abbeykilix for the invite and all our amazing parents and supporters for bringing the girls.
Well done to our U12’s Camogie team who faced a well drilled and challenging Abbeykillix team last Friday night. The girls ability to adapt and implement skills practiced during training made the game even more exciting.
Our under 15 camogie panel are on the home stretch for their Féile na nGael fundraiser. We have started a gofundme to help raise the remainder of the money needed to make this a memorable trip for this fantastic group of players.

Tralee Parnells Golf Classic
The club officially launched its inaugural golf classic in Caherslee last Friday evening. It will be held on Friday July 21st in Beaufort Golf Club. All funds raised will go to completing works on our new Academy pitch in Pairc na Darach in Oakpark.
In 2022, Tralee Parnells was granted a 13 year licence for the use of the GAA pitch, Pairc na Darach, at the Tralee Sports Complex in Oakpark for their Academy players. In order to upgrade the pitch at Pairc na Darach to make it suitable for playing hurling and camogie, substantial investment is required – over €30,000, of which a substantial amount has already been invested by the club. New ball-stops have been erected, nets on the goalposts have been replaced, landscaping has been carried out and the pitch has been sanded, juvenile goalposts have been purchased. Some final groundwork is required so the young hurlers and camogie players can display their skills on a top quality playing surface in a safe environment. The club hopes to have the facility ready for their Academy by July or early August.
Entry fee for a Team of 4 in the golf classic is €200. There are also tee and green sponsorship opportunities available, as well as sponsorship of prizes. Please contact Agnes at 087-8377969 or any member of the Committee for further information.
The club is asking local businesses, parents and supporters of the club to come on board to make this fundraiser a success and to provide the best playing facilities for our young hurlers and camogie players.
