The U15 Badminton team will contest the All Ireland Final in Athlone on Sunday, May 27. With an overnight stay, the cost is considerable so your support would be greatly appreciated. Donation boxes can be found throughout the village. It is a privilege to compete in an All Ireland final in any sport. We should be proud of our youth. SENIOR BADMINTON
Playing in Listowel on Friday last Moyvane won the Division 3 Kerry league title for the fifth time by beating County (Tralee) in the final. Saorcha Fitzgerald and Dermot Keane won both their singles matches. The doubles saw both ladies, Carmel Hudson and Jeanelle Griffin and men, James Sheehan and Donnacha Moloney win their first sets, however the County pairings fought back to take the second and third in the ladies and the men also lost the second and served for the match at 20-19 but, after a battle, lost 22-20, so it was all to play for in the mixed.
