Our senior ladies gathered in the presence of chairperson Brid Mc Elliott manager coach Rory Kilgallen and ladies secretary Grace Falvey, family and friends on Tuesday 27th of December in our old clubhouse Chamfers.

It was lovely to see the team all come together 23 players attended. Not everyone could make it due to other commitments.

The ladies received their North Kerry winning medals for 2022 where they beat Dingle in a thrilling game of great football on a very windy and rainy night back in October under lights.

Brid started off with a few words thanking all the girls for their commitment throughout the year and proceedings went ahead with Rory calling the girls one by one to be handed their medals.

The ladies had some food and got to sit and have a chat about the year that was so successful for the ladies reaching two finals and winning one.

The team are so hard working and cannot wait to get started for 2023. We would like to thank the supporters who have been at every game wind rain and snow all year.

A huge thanks to Mary Smullen and Martha Kilgallen for organizing teas coffees and food for everyone. From all on the Senior ladies team we would like to say a huge thanks to Rory John and Wayne for their commitment throughout the year. Happy new year to all from the senior ladies team and management.


Best wishes to Kerins O Rahillys in the All Ireland Semi Final on Sunday January 8th in Croke Park against Kilmacud Crokes.
