Killarney RFC News: Minis Christmas Party, Fixtures

 In Club

Minis Christmas Party:

Last Sunday, we held our famous Minis Christmas Party at the Killarney
Avenue Hotel. The Minis children and their families descended on the
hotel and were visited by Santa who chatted with each child gave out
treats to all the delighted kids, with the help of his trusty Elf! A
great day was had by all and the minis would like to express a huge
thank you to the management and staff of the Killarney Avenue for the
use of the room, the lovely food and the help on the day. Going by the
sheer volume of noise in the room, the children certainly enjoyed
their day. Thanks to mini coordinator Liam Murphy for organising this
event with much appreciated help from Dora campbell, Ed Stack, Derek
Dennehy, Paul Murphy and to all the parents who assisted in the
organising and running of the day.

The Weather caused the cancellation of training for our U10’s and
U12’s, who were due to train at the Astroturf pitch inFossa. However
the U7’s and U8’s trained indoors at the Sem Gym, in town. We will
hold one more training session this Saturday, prior to the Christmas
break, with the U7 and U8’s back at the SEm, while the U10’s will
hopefully train between 10-11 am at the Astroturf pitch, while the
U12’s will train between 11-12. Please bring €1 for the use of the
hall/Astroturf pitches. For further details contact Liam Murphy on




Again, the weather wreaked havoc on our fixture and training schedule.
Our U14’s were due to take on Abbeyfeale in the West munster U14
league, hoping to continue their excellent run in the league so far,
winning 5 out of the 6 games played. However, the pitch was unplayable
due to the deluge of rain we received on Friday night and the game was
postponed. Hopefully, they will get to play the next round of the
league next Saturday, a match which sees Killarney travel to Tralee to
take on Tralee Blue. Kick off is at 11am.

Our U16’s were due to travel to Limerick for a match and this game
fell foul to the weather also. However, our U18’s played a hard fought
game away to Shannon, losing out on a scoreline of  8 points to 5 in
favour of the hosts.



Our seniors faced another road trip last Sunday, this time it was a
trip to Fermoy RFC that was on the cards. Having won the match away to
Fethard last Sunday by a single point, it was hoped that we could
continue the winning habit. Fermoy proved a tougher side, however and
the final scoreline was 13 points to 8 for the home side. Brian
Sullivan scored the try for Kilarney, while returning Paudie Sheahan
slotted home the conversion. Our seniors have a well earned break over
the Christmas and take on Carrick-on-suir at home on the 03rd of
January next.


Happy Christmas Everyone!


Finally, All of us at Killarney Rugby Club would like to wish our
members, players, coaches, friends and families a very happy Christmas
and all the best for the new year. We have had a very busy season so
far with the move to our new home in Aghadoe and 2016 promises to be
very busy year for the club. We look forward to seeing you all in the
new year.
