Unfortunately, we now have a financial shortfall to complete the altar and weatherproof it for the winter. Due to Covid 19 we have not had our yearly graveyard mass, which would provided us with the required funds. If you would like to donate to complete the covered altar, you may do so by dropping in St. Mary’s Church, Kilflynn at mass time. Or alternatively Parker’s Bar or Herbert’s Bar /Village Store, Kilflynn. Thanking you in anticipation Tom Breen,Bess Cashell, Josephine Whyte or Kathleen Moriarty.

Re – Inter-Club activity for remainder of year.
Please note Inter-Club games will not be resuming for the remainder of this year. Activity at all levels (Senior & Juvenile) including collective training is also suspended.
This follows recent correspondence from Croke Park which was circulated to all the units and the anticipated increase in countrywide restrictions that is due to be announced by the Government.
All outstanding games (both District & County) will be picked up in the New Year with exact dates etc to be confirmed.
The inter-club games programme we had planned for during the inter-county period (Oct/Nov/Dec) has also been shelved.
Our thanks to all the Players, Team Mgt & Clubs for their great commitment and co-operation over recent couple of months and congratulations to all the various winners.

Extra-Time Heartbreak for Kerry U16 Camogie Team

Kerry travelled to LIT on Saturday 17th October  to face Limerick B in the Munster U16 C Camogie Final. The influential Ava Healy was unable to start and she was replaced by Amy O’Loughlin. Just one point separated the sides at the first water break as Limerick led by 1-2 to 1-1 with the Kerry goal coming from Cara Cullen. However, at the half-time break the Kerry girls had gone into a one-point lead, 1-4 to 1-3, and an exciting second half was in store. Kerry maintained this lead and led at the second water break by 1-5 to 1-4. However, Limerick continued to battle hard and the teams were level at the full-time whistle at 1-6 apiece. At half-time in extra-time the Limerick girls had crept into a one-point lead, 1-7 to 1-6. Kerry really pushed Limerick all the way but an exchange of points in this second period gave Limerick the spoils on a final score of Limerick 1-8 Kerry 1-7. Kerry scorers were Tara Burke who contributed three points, Alannah Stritch who scored four points and Cara Cullen who found the Limerick net. This was an outstanding game of camogie and there was consolation for Kerry as midfielder Ellen O’Donoghue received the ‘Player Of The Match’ award from Munster Camogie Treasurer Christine Ryan.

Kerry Team: Kate Kenny, Saoirse O’Carroll, Grainne Shanahan, Leonie Walz, Amy O’Loughlin, Niamh Quinn, Sarah Kearney, Ellen O’Donoghue, Aisling Hanafin, Shannon Collins, Cara Cullen, Melanie Dineen-Higgins, Tara Burke, Alannah Stritch, Amy McCarthy. Subs Used: Róisín Quinn, Alice O’Connell, Aine Devlin, Ruth O’Connor, Anna McCarthy. The Kilflynn area was represented on the Kerry panel by the Quinn Sisters Niamh and Róisín.
