Tralee Parnells bring the Mangan Cup to Caherleaheen.


Surely, hurling/camogie ranks highly as one of the greatest team sports on the globe! Kerry football fans would agree! Therefore, it was with great pride that the senior classes welcomed and cheered our young U.12 Tralee Parnell hurlers, when they presented the Managan Cup to Caherleaheen NS, last Friday. They derailed Dr Crokes last month, a great club that has dominated this competition for years. Tralee Parnells club has invested the last decade to promoting, training and supporting hurling in the greater Tralee area. And we now have four young Setantas in Caherleaheen! Our senior infant, Ryan H. (Parnell Mascot 🙂 ), led his older brother Luke H, Jayden S, David and his brother Seán S. into the hall, to wild applause. County Final winners, supported by parents who help coach all the young Setantas from around Tralee. It’s a great club, so consider joining in Spring 2019 ( Tuesday and Fridays). Start practising with a hurley and sliotar now….great fun and superb for co-ordination and focusing the mind. We are also delighted to welcome Patrice Diggins ( Kerry Gaelic Development) who will train our aspiring young camogie and hurling players, starting next Friday. (Every camogie/hurler needs a Scathach!). Some of our past pupils also feature in the link below. We are very proud of all of you. Beir bua!
