Memorial blitz for Carmel on Saturday

The annual Garda Blitz in memory of a beloved member of the force Carmel O'Connor takes place on Saturday, September 30, at the Na Gaeil GAA Club in Tralee from 10.30am, with the first game at 11am.

The hugely-popular blitz is for under-11 girls from North Kerry Clubs and is now in its 12th year.

"This has been a huge success for underage girls and currently there are 12 teams confirmed. There is no charge for the blitz donations on the day to Red Cross, Tralee branch," organiser Liz Twomey told The Kerryman.
