Registration is open and the club would like to encourage members to register as quickly as possible. Rates have remained the same as last year and adult and player registration is currently in process. Membership registration for the Academy will take place in the clubhouse when the Academy re-opens next week (Saturday, March 5th). Family memberships are also available. New members are more than welcome! Further information can be obtained from club registrar Tom Griffin at 087 2309325 or tomjgriff@hotmail.com, or from any club official.



On Sunday, March 6th as part of our awards season the club will be inducting Dan Moynihan into the club’s Hall of Fame. Dan played for the club and spent seven years as club secretary as well as being involved in the management of many club teams. He also had the honour of refereeing the 1989 County Senior Football Final between Laune Rangers and John Mitchels. We are delighted to be recognising Dan’s achievements and it’s a proud moment for his family who all served the club so well.

As part of the event the club are also inviting members to a very special “Night Full of Stars”. Kerry legends Eoin “The Bomber” Liston, Aidan O’Mahony, our own James O’Donoghue and All-Ireland winner turned successful club coach Stephen Stack will be part of panel hosted by Weeshie Fogarty in an open forum.

The Q & A session promises to make for fascinating listening as tales of old and new are regaled. Indeed, we’re sure Dan will be pleased to be presented with his Hall of Fame award by so many members of football royalty.

So mark the date in your diary as we honour Dan Moynihan and play host to some of the best footballers in the county’s long and proud history. We hope to see you there on Sunday, March 6th at 8.30pm in the Killarney Avenue Hotel.


We’re currently in the process of updating our sponsors’ board for the stand. Anyone who wishes to be included, please contact Denise at 087 8342006 or Seán at 087 2461780 before March 1st. Thank you.
