Congratulations to the U12 girls Division 3 Plate Winners! They defeated a very good St Colman’s side from Milltown in Tralee. The Kenmare girls had been working hard through the year and the results improved with each game. It was a very exciting and tight game to the very last second, in the end Kenmare were the winners by one point!
Congratulations also to our U14 Division 1 girls who won their semi-final of their Division One Cup last Monday v Cahersiveen. We would like to wish them the best of Luck in the County Final.
