Excitement is building for our Feile camogie panel as they finalise their preparations for the national Feile na nGael competition. Training and fundraising has gone really well and we are almost ready for the National Feile competition in Co Roscommon.
We also know who we play in the group stages of the competition.
Game 1 – Padraig Pearses from Co Roscommon
Game 2 – Inniskeen from Co Monaghan
Game 3 – Eire Óg Greystones from Co Wicklow
Many thanks to those who have donated or sponsored us to date. Our gofundme page is still live so please donate and help us cover the costs of the trip https://gofund.me/a1d4970c

The club would like to wish all the girls the very best of luck in Roscommon next Saturday and no doubt they will do themselves, their families and their club proud. Beir bua a chailíní!

Our Senior hurlers have been given a bye in the first round of the Intermediate Championship, due to begin at the end of the month. They will instead play one of the 1st round losers in Round 2 of the championship on the weekend of the 7th/8th July.


Junior Hurling

Our Junior team had a great win against Dr Crokes last Wednesday evening in the South Kerry Hurling league. They won out on a scoreline of Tralee Parnells 2-13 Dr Crokes 1-12.


Tralee Parnells Golf Classic

The club is running its inaugural golf classic 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.
