County Minor Hurling Championship
Semi Final Result Crotta/ Kilmoyley 0-09 Ardfert 2-06
Played on Saturday evening 15th July at the ARC Ardfert. We are all hugely proud of our minor hurling team and management. Fantastic work done by all players and mentors from both clubs these years. Wasn’t to be on Saturday evening but be assured there are great days ahead for these young players. Congrats to St. Brendan’s players and their mentors.


Crotta O’Neills 2-21 to Causeway 3-18. All square after extra-time, Crotta O’Neills advanced to the county championship semi-final to play Kilmoyley after a 3-2 win over last year’s champions, Causeway in a penalty shoot-out) on Saturday 15th July in Austin Stack’s Park. Adam O’Sullivan was the hero of the day for Crotta O’Neills, lifted onto the shoulders of his exhausted but delirious team-mates, after his stunning shoot-out save from Causeway’s Keith Carmody decided this astonishing Garvey’s SuperValu county SHC quarter-final. For the books Darragh O’Donoghue, Adam O’Sullivan and Shane Nolan were the Crotta penalty scorers. The most riveting, action-packed confrontations that we have witnessed in this championship in many a year? It will go down as the game that had absolutely everything. Those present at the famed Tralee venue were privileged to witness such an epic affair.
CROTTA O’NEILLS: Adam O’Sullivan; Sean McGrath, Bill Keane 0-1, Eamonn Shanahan; Darragh Behan, Tomás O’Connor 0-1, Rory Mahony 0-1; Jeaic McKenna, Tadgh McKenna; Seanie McElligott 1-1, Sean Weir 0-2, Gavin Parker; Darragh O’Donoghue 0-1, Shane Nolan 1-11 (0-8f), Declan O’Donoghue 0-1. Subs: Barry Mahony 0-2 (1f) for Parker (ht), Sean O’Donoghue for Darragh O’Donoghue (59), Darragh O’Donoghue for Behan (61), Cormac White for McElligott (67), Darragh Kennelly for Nolan (77), Nolan for Declan O’Donoghue (80+2). Well done to the Crotta players and their mentors and hard luck to Causeway.

Words of thanks from the retiring Parish Priest. A person, giving a ‘Thank you’ talk, often says, ‘I will not name anybody because I may leave out somebody.’ I will take the risk of naming a few and accepting the consequences. I thought of doing this through this newsletter, rather than taking time saying it at the end of Mass. During my time in this parish, I was at the service of the parishioners but I was not the only one, trying to follow the way of Jesus when he said, ‘I came not to be served but to serve.’ I thank all those who served in leadership in the parish, members of Parish Pastoral Council – present and past – and those who served in other parish groups. I commend, very sincerely, those who spent a sizable amount of time cleaning the two churches – many of them doing that work before I came to the parish – and those who looked after the churches in other ways – altar society etc. I offer sincere thanks to those employed in the parish – Sacristans, Maureen McElligott and Dan Healy and Parish Secretary, Bernie White – and others who volunteered to help at different times. I offer a special “Go raibh maith agaibh” to those who gave me brown bread, cooked meals, apple tarts etc. (Fr.) Denis O’Mahony
