Following discussion at committee level for a couple of years the Club Executive has begun the process to identify and recruit a Coaching Development Officer for the Club. With responsibility for amongst other things as training and upskilling of underage coaches, player management and welfare, skill development , health and fitness programmes for underage players it is seen as being a pivotal and crucial step in the future of the Club. The required candidate will have to have the necessary experience but probably most crucially be armed with excellent communication and leadership skills. With the goal that each boy and girl in the club can realise their full potential it is hoped to attract an energetic and dynamic individual. A sub committee in the club has been appointed to oversee the process and it will be headed by Club vice Chairman Liam McGuire. He is joined by Ladies Club Chairperson Ted Healy, Juvenile Management Committee Chair Donal O Leary, Senior Men's player Jamie O Sullivan and former Club officer Diarmuid Leen. We wish the sub committee the best of luck in its work. A full description of the role is available to view on our club website at


The Kerry Ladies Gaelic Football association have been busy finalising their inter county panels for the year ahead. And the Club is represented on all three underage panels. Ali Bowler, daughter of John and Niamh, is selected on the U14 panel, a group where we're also represented by selector Jason Stack. Lauren Careys consistent form for both club and county in recent years is rewarded by a place in the U16s. Andrea Murphy's displays see her selected on the minor panel, an age group she is eligible again for in 2024. We will keep track of the girls' involvement throughout the year and we wish them all the very best.


Cian Gammell started for the 2022 All Ireland Champions in the opening round of Munster pre-season competition against Cork in Pairc Ui Rinn. He followed that up with a squad appearance for the next game against Clare in Austin Stack Park on Sunday last. No doubt Cian will be eying up a challenge to break further into Jack O Connors squad with the National League commencing at the end of the month.

Will Shine and Darragh Fleming are currently part of Tomas O Ses U20 panel who are training at present in preparation for the John Kerins Cup which takes place on Saturdays in February.


Our ever popular and proactive Mothers and Others group commence their year's activities this Wednesday January 11th( and subsequent Wednesdays after) at 8pmin Direen. Self-named social football with a twist it offers an opportunity to all women ,regardless of age and ability, to have a bit of fun and exercise in a light hearted and enjoyable environment.


Commiserations to Kerins O'Rahillys who battled to the bitter end and just came up short against Kilmacud Crokes in the All Ireland Senior Club semi final. And of course congratulations and the very best of luck to our East Kerry neighbours Fossa and Rathmore in their All Ireland finals against Stewartstown Harps and Galbally Pearses respectively, to be held in Croke Park this Sunday January 15th.
