TOMMY KELLY TOURNAMENT
The Tommy Kelly Memorial Tournament took place last Saturday in Kickham Park. Over sixty boys and girls took part with six teams playing in two groups of three. These matches were very competive with some great hurling from all the six teams. Team managers put great effort into their teams throughout the tournament. The tournament ended with three finals. The Plate-Final was won by Team F captained by Alan Butler, The Shield-Final was won by Team C captained by Shane Farrell, The Tommy Kelly Cup-Final was played between Team B and Team D. This match was a great game which had to go to extra time to get a result with Team B captained by Gerard O’Dwyer coming out on top over Team D captained by Cathal Carr. All teams received medals and treats and the Cup was presented by Vinny Kelly, son of Tommy. Great credit is due to the organisers of this annual event. Club officers, managers of teams and parents must be complemented on this great day for the children of the parish. Teas and sandwiches were laid on for everyone in the clubrooms afterwards. Many thanks to the ladies in the tea-room for this treat to end a perfect day!
