John Mitchels u14 girls hosted their counterparts from Firies in Ballyseedy on Sunday and it proved to be a hugely productive game, winning by 6-8 to 1-5 in a comprehensive performance by the whole squad.

The team started early with a point from Kerri Falvey, followed by a goal from Claudia Duffin and another goal from Ellie Reidy Feehan, with Kerri grabbing another.

Mitchels were well on top, but Firies mounted a comeback and scored 1-2, before Mitchels finished off the scoring to lead 3-2 to 1-2 at the break.

An early point from Firies was responded to quickly by Mitchels, with Ellie Rahilly goal

Mitchels took over and with the substitutes producing the same effort and result, we saw 1-1 from Ciara Harris, another goal from Kerri and closing points from Bridget Stewart and Chloe O’Brien to seal a comprehensive win.

It was a busy day for the squad, as earlier that evening the players on last year’s successful u12 team were presented with their medals from what had been a hugely successful season.

They were also presented with a picture collage of their winning teams from the various competitions last season.

It was followed by a presentation of new half zip training tops to all the girl’s teams in the club. A fantastic gesture by the club and the players were delighted with the new tops.

Training continues next week for the players, with parents to get notification on next week’s training and game times.


Last Sunday week (May 29th) the 13s were back in action in phase 2 of the county league. Our Bs were down a few players but put up a great fight in an exciting game to eventually succumb to Na Gaeil B on a score line of 3-6 to 5-7.
Our As were also up against Na Gaeil, always looking comfortable on a final score of 5-13 to 1-12.

On Wednesday evening, Firies As were the visitors and in a ding-dong battle, the men from Farranfore came out on top.

U12 Girls.

The U12 county league fixtures are coming thick and fast for our U12 girls and even though results aren’t going our way,

the improvements are visible for all to see and the spirit and atmosphere within the group is excellent.

The intensity at training has picked up as well recently and we are very proud of this group of girls.

They constantly give it their all and never give up on the field.

Our next game in the county league is against Southern Gales, and we will face the girls from South Kerry at home in Ballyseedy on Friday night the 10th of June at 7:15 pm.

The players from last year’s successful u12 team were presented with their medals and new tops by senior ladies and  member of the National League Division 2 winning Kerry squad this year,  Anna Murphy

A fantastic gesture by the club and the players were delighted with the new tops.


We had brilliant performances by both our U11 teams in Keel on Thursday evening ,
our older boys struggled initially against a very skilful Keel but powered through in the second half to round off a great performance.

Our younger boys got on top early against a youthful Keel and put in their best performance of the year so far.

Well done boys. We train Sunday morning at 10.30am to 11 45 am


We had another fantastic turn out on Wednesday evening last.

After an excellent warm up the girls got straight into drills starting with kicking which is improving no end.

We introduced a new tackling drill which the girls took too very well, which was very evident in the game which was very keenly contested.

Keep up the good work girls.

Training again next Wednesday at 6.30.


John Mitchels U9 Boys had a good training session on Sunday last, we practiced our hand passing & kick passing & went straight into small sided games.

We play Currow next Sunday so please keep practicing & we will see ye all again on Wednesday evening.


The under 7 boys and girls had a great training session Sunday morning. Numbers are improving each week which is fantastic.

The weather held out for the boys and girls so they all went home happy.

We look forward in seeing you all again next week
