KILFLYNN ENCHANTED FAIRY FESTIVAL
With a yellow warning forecasted on Friday evening to Saturday evening, the committee examined some of the ground damage evident after Thursday night’s/ Friday mornings rain, with safety of the visitors, stall holders, entertainers and volunteers and taking into consideration the damage that could be done to parking facilities and fairy trail, with a heavy heart, they have made a very difficult decision that they postponed last weekend’s festival and reschedule for Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of August. We know you have been so disappointed about the decision the fairies made. For weeks ye have been getting ready by deciding on costumes, leaving little notes for your fairies and preparing to join us from far and wide. Your loved ones may have been showing you little videos created by us and the Kilflynn people to build your excitement and then we announce we are cancelling the weekend. Fairies love opposites so they were meant to start the summer off but now they have decided to end the summer season with a fairy festival as planned on 27th and 28th of August. Congratulations to Ted and Tedette on the arrival of baby Tedeena weighing at 545Lb a healthy baby girl on Saturday evening. A huge appreciation to the Ted Wife’s Andrew Byrne Jack and Michael Brady and. Kilflynn village is delighted with the new arrival. We believe in fairies, we do, we do

COUNTY SENIOR HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP
The Crotta Senior hurlers got their Garvey’s SuperValu Senior Hurling Championship 2022 campaign off to a winning start with a victory over Ballyheigue in Group 3 Round 1 On Friday, 24th June at Austin Stack Park, on the final score line of 2-16 to 1-10.
Ten points in total from the long-serving Kerry star Shane Nolan (including four from play) was, unquestionably, a match-winning contribution, with a two-goal blast in the second quarter from full-forward Declan O’Donoghue, also playing a pivotal role in Crotta’s virtually untroubled passage to their first championship victory of the season.
While the likes of Ryan McElligott, Rory Mahony who was making his Senior Championship debut and Sean Weir were also consistently solid for the winners, Nolan’s leadership throughout, and O’Donoghue’s ruthlessness when he got his opportunities, were the proverbial rocks on which the Ballyheigue challenge perished on. The green and red lads led at interval break by 2-8 to 1-5. Crotta play Lixnaw in Round 2 on Sunday 3rd July at 1.30p.m in Austin Stack’s Park, Tralee Please note tickets must be pre-purchased. No tickets available at the gate We wish the Crotta Senior Hurlers and their management the best of luck.
CROTTA O’NEILLS: Adam Sullivan; Ryan McElligott, Bill Keane, Sean McGrath; Rory Mahony, Sean Weir 0-1, Tadhg McKenna; Tomas O’Connor, Shane Nolan 0-10 (6f); Cillian Trant, Darragh O’Donoghue 0-1, Sean O’Donoghue; James Sheehan 0-1, Declan O’Donoghue 2-1, Jordan Conway 0-2. Subs: Denis Nolan for S O’Donoghue (44 mins), Darragh Kennelly for Sheehan (54 mins), Dominic Nolan for O’Connor (59 mins), Cormac White for Darragh O’Donoghue (62 mins).
