On behalf of everyone in the Crotta Hurling club, we would like to wish our Senior player Barry Mahony the very best as he takes a sabbatical from the green and red and makes the trip of a lifetime to New York. Swapping the rolling hills of Dromakee for the bright light of the big apple.
Barry will be sorely missed by everybody in Kerry circles while away but we hope he has an amazing time and lives life to the full while in NYC.
Once the memories are banked, we will be delighted to see him wearing the famed Green & Red once again in the hurling fields of Kerry very soon.
All the best Baz! #CrottaAbu
