The Minor Ladies followed up their opening East Kerry League win over Beaufort with a very solid and hardworking win over Kilcummin. The two sides have a rivalry borne out of a history of close and engaging battles and with only two points between the sides in Legion favour at half time another nervy half of football was expected. But credit to the Legion girls they probably produced their best half hour of the season as they ran out winners on a comfortable scoreline. They now face MKL Gaels in the next round, due to be played in Direen this Friday September 23rd.
Congratulations to our Club Secretary Lara O’Brien who was very successful when taking part in Today FMs Radio Cash Machine competition. A sharp operator, she proved her prowess when called by the radio station and in the process won a cool 23,544.93 Euro. But in an ultimate act of generosity she donated half her winning to a charity close to her heart, the always worthy Kerry Parents and Friends. Take a well earned bow Lara!!
What a wonderful afternoon we had for our Club Barbecue with the weather behaving itself and a great time had by all. Social committee Chairperson Sharon O Grady was extremely grateful to Timmy O’Donoghue and his family Ber, Paudie, Luke and Sue for the work they put into the day. Also the chefs Kevin(Timmy’s brother) and John, as well as Desiree, Orla, Denise and Catherine who were the commi chefs. Chairman Dave Randles for the tables and chairs, the bartenders Sarah, Eoghan and Eve, Linda and Donal for the teas and coffees, Patricia for the face painting, Hannah and Caroline for organising the dancers, Donal and Timmy for having the dance floor, Brian Looney and Lara for the beats and mic duty, Treasurer John Foran and President Tommy Regan for having the facilities in tip top shape. John Doona was a helpful shopkeeper while snapper Maria O Sullivan captured it all. It was a magnificent collective effort by all the committee who spent the days before having everything in place. Thanks to Tim Jones for supplying the beautiful meat and the aforementioned Timmy for the beer supplied by Killarney Brewery. And on a beautiful autumn day the ice cream from Muckross Creamery was a huge hit.
