On Sunday, December 11th the club will gather to honour our Under 14 team who won both the East Kerry League (Division 1) and the East Kerry Championship, and also the Under 16s who were victorious in the East Kerry Championship.
It was indeed an historic year for the club to capture those three titles. East Kerry is acknowledged as the foremost division in the county and to win these three competitions is indeed a remarkable feat. We are extremely proud of these achievements. Indeed, some of the players even won the East Kerry Under 15 Super Touch title as well.
To celebrate these great wins we are delighted to have All-Ireland minor-winning manager Peter Keane with us for the evening .Peter managed us in 2014 and 2015 to great effect and then led the Kerry minors to glory in 2016. Playing a superb brand of football, they captured the county’s imagination with their win.
Honourary life member Joanne O’Riordan is a source of huge inspiration to us all. The “No Limbs, No Limits” heroine has shown that there are no obstacles that can’t be overcome when it comes to achieving your goals. Living proof of prospering in the face of adversity we are delighted that Joanne will be joining us on the evening. She is a very open character and will address the lads in her own unique way on how she has overcome barriers and continues to be a role model for the youth. The International Young Person of the World Award-winner is a great supporter of the club and it would be great to see a big turnout for the players, Peter and Joanne.
So all roads lead to the Killarney Avenue Hotel on Sunday, December 11th at 7pm for our Medal Presentation evening.
LADIES CLUB OF THE YEAR?
Legion and two other clubs have been nominated for Club of the Year by the Kerry Ladies Football Board. It’s a great tribute to the work being done on and off the field by our ladies and mentors. Well done to everyone involved.
On Friday, December 9th there will be a club Christmas drinks night.
It will be an ideal opportunity for all members of the club to come together for a few drinks in casual surroundings. Everyone from Saturday morning coaches to juvenile trainers, senior players, officers and general members are invited. Murphy’s Bar in College Street is the venue and 8.30 is the throw-in time.
The club extends its sympathies to Saturday morning coach Tomás Horan on the death of his father, Tommy Joe.
