With all the action winding down on the field now is the time for reflection on the year just gone.It is a testament to the work being done in the recent past that we find the Ladies side of the club in a healthy position.With numbers on a par to the boys this year we fielded teams in all age groups from U12 to senior.And to demonstrate the progress being made, all bar 1 of those teams won a trophy or in some cases two.And the one team who didn’t lift silverware,the U14s,had a busy year, reaching 2 finals and the advance in their play was evident all year.The U12 girls won honours at East Kerry and County level as did the U16s.And as recent as last weekend our Senior ladies won their 4th trophy in as many years.They won the East Kerry Division 3 final by beating Currow 1-12 to 1-9. This was a particularly satisfying win as Currow had beaten them twice already this year in the County competitions . This victory is of course doubled up with the County Junior C they won earlier this year.
While it is gratifying to see success and an increased playing population none of this would be possible without proper administration.To this end Ladies club chairman Dave Randles and his group of ladies mentors have been relentless in their efforts to continue to provide our girls with the best organisation and coaching possible.There is no doubt that with the same input in the next few years our Ladies Club can only go from strength to strength.
