Annual General Meeting
The club AGM was held on Friday evening at Kerins ORahillys clubhouse. The senior officers reported on their activities during the year while a summary of the reports of the other officers was read out. The various reports highlighted many activities during the clubs 10th anniversary year. It was interesting to note that it was a year for a number of firsts for the club. The U15s earned the first All-Ireland medals for the club as Division 3 Feile naGaeil champions, the first North Kerry U21 Championship win, the first adult silverware in winning the South Kerry Championship as well as winning the first Scór na nÓg County title.
It was noted that the recent opening of Ball Wall at Gaelscoil Mhic Easmainn where Parnells will have access after school hours will be invaluable to the club in 2023.
The Chairperson confirmed that Parnells have been granted a license to use the pitch at the Sports Complex. While some work remains to be done the pitch should be available for our academy players for 2023. The pitch will be known as Parc na Darach.
During the year the club Lotto was successfully launched and now takes place every two weeks. We also launched our club website https://traleeparnells.gaa.ie where visitors on the web can find out everything about the club.
It was agreed not to increase the registration fees for 2023 while an option will be added for members to renew their membership by subscribing to the club lotto.
