Kerry 2-24 Down 1-21
The Kerry Senior hurlers are just a win away from a Joe McDonagh Cup final place having deservedly defeated Down with a six-point margin in a competitive opening round of the championship in the second tier at Austin Stack’s Park, Tralee on Saturday 26th June.
It was a day when the two “Shane’s (Nolan and Conway) and the two Boyle produced sparking displays accounting for 1-20 of Kerry total between the quartet with Barry Mahony not too far behind in the supporting role chipping in 3 great scores from play. The Crotta club was represented by Shane Nolan, Centre field, (0-04) Barry Mahony Centre Forward (0-03), Tomas O’Connor and Donal Hunt both came on as subs. Kerry play Meath in their next game  in the Joe McDonagh Cup. We wish the players and their mentors all the best.

Weekend Masses: The practice of having to book for weekend Masses is no longer being followed in our two churches. Instead, we are doing as many other parishes are doing – operating on ‘First come, first served basis.’ Judging by what has happened since the return to having all Masses open to the public, we should not find ourselves having to turn away people, because of having more than the number allowed. In Abbeydorney the number is 100 made up ‘2 pods of 50’ while Kilflynn can accommodate up to 70.


The local confidential number is 087 7086253.


ALONE manages a national support line and additional support for older people who have concerns or are facing difficulties relating to COVID-19. The support line is open seven days a week, 8am – 8pm, by calling 0818 222 024
