Tralee Parnells Under 7’s had the privilege of taking part in a county blitz in the Centre of Excellence in Currans last Tuesday evening. Fielding 3 strong and determined teams Parnells faced Rathmore, Kilmoyley, Dr. Crokes, Lixnaw, Ballyduff & Causeway. The matches were a combination of ground and air hurling and these young players certainly enjoyed displaying their skills to the army of supporters that travelled with them. It was a pleasure to see how far they have come since the beginning of the season and we are very proud of each and every one of them.Congratulations to this week’s players of the week:
Sadie Collins, Evan Lucid, Oisín Bourke & Éanna Sheehan- well done to you all.
