HAPPY NEW YEAR​

The Club would like to wish all our members, supporters, players and officials the very best for 2023 . We would also like to acknowledge our sponsors , without whom the running of the club would not be possible. Also we would ask you to continue to support our Club Lotto as it is the lifeblood of the Clubs finances. It is imperative as we continue to strive and progress going forwards.

NEW ARRIVALS ​

Congrats are in order for Eilise O'Donoghue and her husband Jamie on the recent arrival of baby Lily May. No doubt Grandparents Donal and Linda are proud as punch with the new addition to the family. And also to senior footballer Stephen Flattery and his wife Ellen on the arrival pre Christmas of baby Billy.

JAMES MIXIE PALMER RIP​

The Club extends its sympathies to the family of James Mixie Palmer. James was a member of the 1946 Killarney Legion County Championship winning side where he lined out in the centre back position. Born in Kenmare in 1927 he made 20 full championship appearances for Kerry, plus one substitute appearance. Initially picked as a forward he soon made his name as a defender, winning five Munster Championships and two All Ireland championships in 1953 and 1955. He was ever present at corner back in 1955 in a year where he was joined on the pitch  by Johnny Culloty.

Interestingly he first appeared on the inter-county scene as a member of the Cork minor football team in 1945 before subsequently winning an All-Ireland Junior Championship medal with Kerry in 1949. 
He claimed his first All-Ireland title after a defeat of Armagh in the 1953 All-Ireland final. After defeat by Meath the following year, Palmer collected a second winners' medal after lining out at left corner-back in Kerry's defeat of Dublin in the 1955 All-Ireland final. And interestingly he also lined out with Waterford in the 1957 Munster Championship.

DEEPEST SYMPATHIES ​

The Club extends its sympathies to the family of Brendan O Brien, Ballydavid Dingle and formerly of Marian Terrace Killarney. Brendan played underage football with the Club, his brother in law is former Club Officer Tom Griffin , his nephew KJ Griffin who played for the Club at all grades. May he Rest in Peace.

SPEEDY RECOVERY ​

We would like to wish our former Chairman and Club Stalwart Pat Moynihan a speedy recovery from recent surgery. Glad to report that Pat is on the mend, out and about over Christmas and here's hoping he makes a complete recovery as soon as possible.
