A big thank you to our Limerick neighbours who dug deep at the weekend and bought lots of Brosna GAA Car Raffle tickets. Much appreciated.
County League Round 5 saw an injury riddled Brosna travel to Laune Rangers on Sunday. An exciting game of fast-paced plays unfolded in front of enthusiastic fans for both sides. Brosna showed real determination and belief in the face of a home side that has traversed the League unbeaten. The slew of wides for Brosna in the first half influenced the final outcome significantly.
Laune Rangers came out on top at the final whistle but not before Adam Barry, with a 5 point tally, Conor Lane with a great goal and Shane Fitzmaurice defending brilliantly, left their mark of excellence on the game. Fulltime Brosna 1 10. Laune Rangers 1 12.
NEVER TOO YOUNG
I was delighted to see so many bonny baby supporters at the Laune Rangers game.
Adam O’Sullivan and Caoimhe O’Sullivan seemed completely absorbed by the action on the pitch. Disappointingly they turned up in the opposition’s colours but we’ll overlook that rookie error.

A dance on the Pattern night in Courtneys hall at the end of the village always ended a perfect Castle Pattern Day ! Long may these old traditions continue.

ANNASCAUL/CASTLEGREGORY GIRLS BIG WIN
Girls County League Division 2: Annascaul/ Castlegregory 5-7 Glenflesk 3-5 Annascaul / Castlegregory thundered into the game when Caoimhe Skinner fed Sharon who powered through to raise the green flag. Caoimhe chipped in with a point as Glenflesk used their pace and were in for a certain goal only for the lion hearted Orla to intervene with a great tackle. A/C were finding it tough against a pacy Glenflesk and a great turn over by Leah Courtney, joint captain, saw her work it up to her co captain Sharon for a point.
This inspired the home team and a clever move saw Niamh release Alanna who raced through and found Sharon for her second goal. A/C’s purple patch continued after the water break with Molly fetching out of the clouds, quickly onto Aoibhinn who pin pointed Sharon who slipped it to Lia Sheehy to finish well to the back of the net. Glenflesk responded with 3 points but found it tough to breakdown A/C’s defence with Caoimhe Curran, Tara and Beatrice dogged at the back. Caoimhe Skinner kicked two great points as Lily and Lia Sheehy worked hard to set up scores. Saoirse netted twice, the second being the pick of the goals as the twins Niamh and Aoibhinn interlinked well to set Saoirse up for a great score. H/T: A/C 5-3 Glenflesk 0-3. The second half saw Glenflesk throw the kitchen sink at the home girls and were rewarded with 2 goals as they piled on the pressure.
Two great saves by Beatrice and stout defending by Liwia, Jenna and Molly kept them at bay. Fresh legs upfront saw Andrea, Maria, Rachel and Amy set up Caoimhe for 3 more points as midfielders Alanna and Leah ran themselves into the ground. A defiant Glenflesk battled away and finished strongly to score 1-2 and leave the final score: A/C 5-7 Glenflesk 3-5.
Panel: Beatrice Dowling, Tara Laide, Orla Curran, Caoimhe Curran, Niamh O Callaghan, Molly McCarthy, Liwia Polanczick, Alanna Griffin, Leah Courtney, Lia Sheehy, Caoimhe Skinner, Aoibhinn O Callaghan, Lily Falvey, Sharon Enright, Saoirse Brosnan, Andrea Fitzgerald, Maria Keane, Rachel Heassman and Amy Kennedy.Thanks to Glenflesk for a sporting and fair game and to ref Gordon Kerins who left the game flow.Above Report courtesy Annascaul GAA and Coiste na n-Og, Facebook page.
It seems a local Campman had just the right type of Motor bike for a film shoot recently in Kerry.The movie starring Academy Award winner, Olivia Colman and written by Tralee native, Ailbhe Keoghan, and directed by Emmy-award winning director, Emer Reynolds, has already started filming and there are hundreds of Kerry people working as extras taking in the shoot. We’ll all be looking forward to seeing this exciting movie on the big screen sometime soon. You’ll have to wait for the movie to see all the action !ART DISPLAYLocal artist, Hannah Herlihy, Kilteenbane, Camp has some lovely pieces on display in Ashes Pub in the village. Hannahs most recent painting of 2 cows from a photograph taken by Grainne O Dwyer is really grabbing the attention of visitors to the pub. Congratulations Hannah!
On the Saturday Supplement last weekend, local poet Bríd Ní Mhórain took Frank Lewis on an amazing journey through the historic northern part of the Dingle Peninsula. Beginning at the Childrens Cillín at Annagh graveyard, West of Blennerville and onto Gleann na nGealt and Castlegregory and The Maharees finishing at Cloghane and Brandon, its a really fascinating programme and story of the past. Joined along the way by many local historians, story tellers and archaeologists, among them, Martha Farrell, Fionnuala Fitzgerald, Martin Lynch, Michael O Coileain, Michael O Ruairc, Liam Sayers and Sheila Sayers and Brigid O Connor. Congratulations Frank and Bríd, scéál agus clár iontach !Tune into the podcast in the next days on Radio Kerry.

FUTURE FLOODING IN NORTH KERRY
The map released last week which shows the local areas such as Ballyhorgan and Ennismore that may be subject to periodic flooding by 2050 is something that will be a cause of unease to a great many people as well as central government.
