Forging life-long friendships and promoting the game of camogie in Killarney were among the themes celebrated at the Killarney Camogie Club Social at the East Avenue Hotel on last Friday evening.
Club personnel handed out certificates and medals to players to mark the achievements of last season. The presentations doubled up with the club’s tenth anniversary celebrations. Guests on the night included Elaine Murphy and Ger McCarthy of the Kerry Camogie Board. Ger, who is chairman, presented medals to Feile and minor players, while Ceara Moore, presented certificates to the U10s and U12s.
Caroline O’Leary of Killarney Camogie Club said the numbers continue to grow as the club embarks on a recruitment campaign for U8s and U10s ahead of the new season which starts on February 10 at the Spa GAA Club hall.
“We have around 120 players at the club. We have players coming from Kenmare to play with us. It shows you how there is a hunger for the game now,” said Caroline.
A special thanks was extended on the night to Mike and Geraldine Cronin from Spa GAA Club where Killarney Camogie Club use the facilities.
“They [Spa GAA] are very good to us. It’s a great thing to see so many girls making friends through camogie,” said Caroline.
