Monroe was the venue for the South Peil Final on Sunday. Commercials provided the opposition for Killenaule. This proved to be an exciting and riveting encounter, with both teams living to fight another day.

The new management team got their tactics right on the day and will be delighted the attitude and discipline on the pitch. It’s difficult to single out any player on the Killenaule squad, as this was real team effort, and no one had a bad game. Killian O’Dwyer, Jack Hayes and Dean O’Connor took turns in an effective midfield. In the backs, Larry Gleeson, Sean Bourke and Liam Meagher all had good games. Up front Philip Fogarty, Gary Kavanagh, and Mark Heffernan worked hard and won a lot of possession.

Good luck next week lads.


Killeanule Juvenile GAA club, Wednesday, March 7, at the Complex 7pm to 9pm. Andy Ryan, the Coaching and Development officer will be present.

All are welcome. Tea, coffee and biscuits on the night.

Pancake Tuesday

Pancake Tuesday saw a delicious array of freshly made pancakes provided to some of the pupils who were delighted to show off their culinary skills with the preparation of the pancakes and were thrilled to indulge in the sweet and savoury fillings provided by the teachers. It was a wonderful experience that was shared by both pupils and teachers alike.
