While the pruning of cattle herds continues unabated fodder strapped farmers are very fortunate the local Fealebridge and Headley's Bridge CO OP has taken on the mantle of supplying hay and straw to suppliers. In the wake of the worst harvest in living memory many see their supply greatly increased by the action of the CO-OP.
The honouring recently of Kerry's oldest surviving hurling county championship medal winner Florry O'Sullivan of Kenmare rekindled memories for many . Florry was a member of that team away back in 1942. The main driving force behind the team at the time was Fr Bob Walsh then a Curate in Kenmare. Fr Bob had been a Curate in Knocknagoshel a decade earlier and returned here as Parish Priest in 1949 retiring here in 1990 after a long unbroken spell. Come on the Saints .
ST. KIERANS ABÚ
All roads lead to Austin Stack Park on Sunday next where both county senior football semifinals are billed to take place. The local district side St. Kierans face Dingle. This is a game we expect the Saints with provided the shutters are up from the start as Dingle are prone to score goals early in a game. James and Edmund Walsh will start on Sunday and Michael Brosnan will be on the bench from Knocknagoshel. Best of luck to all involved in the Saints'camp.
UP FOR THE MATCH
Croke Park housed quite a number of Kerry supporters from Knocknagoshel on Sunday last. All were there to cheer on Lorraine Scanlon our local football star of this Kerry team. Among those we met up with were Lorraine Scanlon's parents and grandparent plus fans from all quarters of our parish. In the Hogan Stand I met Michael McMahon, son of the late Brian McMahon Listowel. Local man Billy Mangan ferried the Kerry team in one of his coaches. Some more of his fleet of coaches took hundreds to the game. While victory went to a great Cork team many feel Kerry's day is not far off.
