Weekly notes 27 march
Scór na nÓg
Last week saw the County Finals of Scór na nÓg take place and Tralee Parnells had representatives in a number of categories. In the Tráth na gCeist Final in Currow School on Thursday last, our team of Donnacha Buttimer, Brian Reidy, Karl Cronin and Aoife Trant won the title by 1 point after a close battle with our neighbours from Na Gaeil. This is the 2nd year in a row that the club has won the County Final. The team will now go on and represent Kerry in the Munster Final in Ovens, Co. Cork on Saturday April 15th.
In Currow Community Centre last Saturday night, our Ballad Group (Orla Buttimer, Aoife Trant, Aoibhín O’Sullivan, Roanna O’Sullivan and Maebh O’Connell), Solo Singer (Orla Buttimer) and Novelty Act (Brian Reidy, Karl Cronin, Aoife Trant, Maeve Trant, Orla Buttimer, Aoibhín O’Sullivan and Roanna O’Sullivan) represented the club with honour. All performed excellently in what was tough competition and our Novelty Act finished runners-up in their category.
On behalf of the club, we would like to thank all participants for their commitment to practice and the competition and a special thanks to their coaches Katie, Martina, Padraig, Michelle and Damien on preparing them so well. We wish our Tráth na gCeist team every success as they prepare for the Munster Final.
Under 7’s
Tralee Parnells under 7’s were back training this week in MTU, the boys and girls were full of energy after a week’s break during which they marched as part of the Tralee Parnells contingent in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. They enthusiastically completed all warm-ups and drills and finished as always with a game of hurling and skills.
Congratulations to this week’s players of the week Cian O’Carroll & Evan Lucid, well-done boys.
