Our senior ladies entertained Dingle at home in Rd 4 junior B championship in warm dry windy conditions, Mitchels won the toss and played with the breeze that was blowing, Dingle applied early pressure moving the ball well before our ladies got into gear and an early point from Rachel followed by Ava got us going. Dingle replied with a point before a turnover left Dingle in for a goal

Mitchels midfield of Sarah and Leona were working hard and further points from Rachel and penalty by Diana gave us a 4-point lead after Ava was upended, with Kayleigh sound in goals giving great restarts to Anna and Julie we continued to press forward where the hardworking Karen supplied good ball for further points from Linda and Sarah and a goal from Ava left half time Mitchels 2-7 Dingle 1-5.

The second half saw Dingle press for an early point, an injury then to Emma Carmody resulted in a reorganization with Kayleigh moving out field and Emma lynch into goals.

Mitchels now working hard with Shannon and Tanya defending well-kept Dingle at bay, with Emilia and Sandra now moving well a great move lead to Ava scoring a goal to increase our lead however Dingle never gave up and hit the post for a let off , Mitchels now looking fresher broke away with Ava fouled and from the penalty the Dingle goalie made a great save, Mitchels then struck for the fourth goal from Ava and points from Diana and Rachel closed out the game with Sherma coming on for Tanya Injury, great second half never gave up and good win final score Mitchels 4-10 Dingle 2-7. We are away to Aunascaul/ Castlegregory next Sunday,

Time TBC follow for more details.

Training for U16 ladies continues this Monday evening from 6.00-7.00pm in preparation for upcoming North Kerry League

All newcomers welcome.


On Wednesday evening last we played Milltown in the semi-final of the Central league.

It was a very close game and our lads showed grit and determination the whole way through. They trailed by a single point at half time, but order was soon restored in the second half where they showed a high skill level to dominate things winning on a final score of Milltown 3-13 to Mitchels 2-18.

They now move on to the final which is yet to be confirmed. Training continues Monday @5-30pm


The u14 girls travelled to Finuge GAA ground to take on Finuge St Senans.

We started the game well kicking 2 early points without defence coming under pressure after 15 min we conceded 3 goals in a short space of time coming back into the games before half time.

Mitchels got a goal with 8min to half time followed by a further point from our outstanding forward on the night Kerri Falvey.

Thing we’re looking up for the second half, but another major blow just on the half time whistle the north Kerry side hit for their fourth Goal.

Leaving it 1.04 Mitchels to 4 goals for Finuge St Senans.

Second half was fast and furious with again the north Kerry side getting in for an early goal and Mitchels replied with 3 points to get back into the game.

Unfortunately, again the north Kerry side hi for another goal leaving the final score 6.04 to Mitchels 1.08. All the girls gave it 100% and came up short against A strong north Kerry outfit.

With a few girls missing due to injuries who we wish a speedy recovery and few on vacation we will regroup and get ready for our next Challenge.

Congratulations to the girls who represented John Mitchels in the u13 championship with Tralee.

Who will play the final this Wednesday evening venue and time to be confirmed.

2nd game Tralee league v Churchill

Mitchels girl took on a huge challenge facing Churchill who play 2 divisions above us.

It was going to be a big ask for our girls.

But this is when these girls come out fighting with a master class of defence work from 01to 15 they for sure held Churchill in the 1st half going in two points down on a score line of 2points to 4 in favour of the Churchill ladies.

With temperatures rising high on the field and getting very competitive the referee having to have a few words with a few of the ladies from both sides Mitchels battled to the 50th minute only behind by 04points to 07 with Churchill calling in the big guns from the bench they hit the net on the 55th minute.

This was the biggest test Mitchels had in a while and stood up to this challenge with a huge masterclass of defence. Well done to all the girls.


A big evening for our u13s on Sunday evening with our Bs in the semi-final and our As in the final of the Central Region League.

First up were our Bs who were facing another clash with Laune Rangers, whom we already had a number of memorable games already this year. Our lads started well and by half time had built up a 7-point lead. Laune Rangers shuffled their pack for the 2nd half and the changes proved effective, pegging is back to level as the game approached full time. With the game fidelity in the balance our lads responded with a fantastic breakaway goal.

A frantic finish saw the ball just deflected over the bar from a Laune Rangers final attack after which the final whistle blew to our lad’s joy. A super performance from the boys and another well-deserved place in a final against our neighbours Austin Stacks.


John Mitchels 4-7 Laune Rangers 1-13

The A final followed and despite the poor forecast today it proved to be a perfect evening for football against Na Gaeil. We started well and some fluid forward play saw us build up a healthy lead. Na Gaeil started to grow into the game though and the concession of two goals by us just before half time was to prove costly.

The 2nd half ebbed and flowed but try as our lads might we could never reduce the margin to get within striking distance. A late goal for us saw the game finish in a flurry of excitement but Na Gaeil were value for the victory with a fantastic display of football skill and intensity on the night. It was a brave effort by our lads who never gave up but unfortunately were once more second best in a Final this year.

John Mitchels 2-9 Na Gaeil 2-12

Training to be announced while we await remaining fixtures for the Central Region League and Town League

U12 Girls

John Mitchels 6:03 Na Gaeil 0:11

Our U12 girls began their Tralee Town League campaign in a very positive fashion with a well-earned victory over Na Gaeil, in what was ideal conditions for football in Ballyseedy.

The girls in Green and Gold have trained extremely hard over the summer months in preparation for this competition and looked sharp and composed from the first whistle.

The coaches are extremely proud of the players and from number 1 to 30 every girl played their part in the victory.

We play St Pats away in Blennerville on Tuesday night and hopefully the momentum of Sundays victory will push the girls in to another good performance on Tuesday night.

We will gather in Blennerville at 6:15 on Tuesday night. Gum shields are essential.

Congratulations also to Sophie, Maya and Shauna who made their John Mitchels debut with the u12 girls against Na Gaeil.
