Both sides gave a great account of themselves in such heavy weather conditions. So the board and the O'Mahony family would like to thank these young players for there time and dedication to such a good cause.

The game was held to raise funds for the family of Arlene O'Mahony. Arlene, who is originally from the Central Philippines Island of Leyte, is married to Denis O'Mahony and they reside in Tullig, Kilflynn.

They are actively involved with the local GAA Clubs of Crotta O'Neills and St Senans as well as the GAA in North Kerry. Their son Adrian plays with Crotta O'Neills, St Senans, Feale Rangers and the Kerry Under 16 Hurling team.

Arlene's family and community in Leyte have lost everything they own as a result of hurricane Haiyan. There is still time to help with this cause so now Coiste na nÓg Chiarraí Thuaidh are appealing to all GAA supporters to make a donation, no matter how small, it will be appreciated.

Contact Secretary Maurice Mannix (086) 1017452.
