At Fedamore, Limerick. On Saturday 19th June. But the girls upped the tempo in second half and outscored Limerick 0-12 to 0-3. The Kerry defence was outstanding throughout and Patrice Diggin was awesome scoring 0-12 from frees and play.

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.
