Our Annual Golf Classic was a resounding success with participants taking full advantage of the unseasonally mild Autumn conditions at the O Mahonys Point layout.When all the scores were in it was the trio from Bricin Restaurant that fared best.The day ran like clockwork thanks to the efficiency of the event supremo Sean Murphy and his henchwoman Marian O Connor. Congrats to all our prize winners and sincere thanks to all who played,sponsored and participated in the event.Big thanks to Enda Murphy and his course team who had the track in pristine condition and also to our event sponsor Micheal O Donoghue of the Killarney Avenue Hotel who had been a most generous sponsor of this event.

Minus the service of some regulars the U16 boys acquitted themselves very well against Rathmore in the East Kerry Championship.In a tight game played in Direen scores were hard earned and it was only the final moments that Rathmore hit the front with 2 points in as many minutes.With the score at 0-4 to 0-3 at halftime it was still level at 0-6 apiece with 5 minutes to go before Rathmore got the all important scores.Next up now is a date with Gneeveguilla this weekend with the winners facing Rathmore in the final.A very competitive championship with 3 of the top 6 teams in the county all still involved, whoever wins out with certainly earn their corn.
