Sympathy
One of Listry’s oldest and most respected citizens passed away recently. Con O’Mahony was cherished by all who knew him and lived a long and happy life in this community. He gave a lifetime of service to the G.A.A. He served as a selector with the Dick Fitzgerald’s team which won the Co. Senior Title in the early 1950’s. He trained the Listry team which won the East Kerry League in 1952 and also was trainer of the 1970 O’Donoghue Cup winning Listry Team.
Sympathy is extended to his brother and sister, to his nephews and nieces and his wide circle of friends.
Athletics
At the National Masters Athletic Championships which were held at Tullamore recently, Jim O’Shea from Listry and representing Farranfore - Maine Valley Athletic Club won four medals in the over 70 age category. He won the High Jump and finished second in the 100 metres, 200 metres and long jump.
Ruby Jubilee 40 year of Priesthood
Fr. Eugene McGillycuddy, better known to those around as Fr. Gene celebrated 40 years of his ordination to the priesthood with his family, relatives, neighbours and friends. He concelebrated Mass at the Sacred Heart Church Milltown on August 8th. His brother Fr. Denis gave the homily who is in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Fr. Eugene was ordained the 2nd June 1974 at the Cathedral Waterford for the Diocese Leeds England, where he is now Parish Priest in the Parish of Blessed Edmund Sykes in Leeds. He already has had a parish celebration, where family and friends and parishioners gathered on 13th June. As a young priest he was curate to the late Fr Daly from Swinemount and Canon Denis Tagney, Listry. He was also supported by Fr. Johnny Quirke, Milltown, who was in the adjoining Parish in
Sheffield. Fr. Eugene is the son of the late Eugene and Anne McGillycuddy of Farran Milltown and we wish him every success as he goes for gold!

Killarney
Rugby Club
Killarney Senior squad continues to train at Dirreen off the bypass road on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm. The first match of the new season is a challenge away to Listowel in the Town Park on Saturday 30th August. Kick off time is to be arranged. We have a host of new players this season which is great. There are plenty of experienced players some of whom have even come out of retirement and are most welcome back. Preparations are going well for the season and John Nikora is happy so far with the turnout of players. More players are very welcome and enquiries from Club Captain Ger Moynihan on 087 1240365.
MINIs will resume Saturday mornings from Saturday 6th September at the familiar spot at Knockreer. We have plans to move to the new grounds as soon as possible but a lot of work has to be done before that can happen not to mention some more grass seeding etc. So please be patient, it will happen soon.
TAG TUESDAYS has been cancelled the past two weeks as the peak holiday season has hit home and interest has waned. We had a great summer for the past 10 weeks or so. The facilities are very central and useful and our thanks to Killarney Community College for the use of them and also thanks to Anne Clifford, Tony Dunne, Willie O’Sullivan and special thanks to Feargal Courtney for his great work and patient refereeing this year. Thanks to all who took part. Watch out on Facebook for further details.
Fundraising New ideas are welcome and the next meeting of the Committee takes place at the Malton on Monday 25th August to review progress with some of those ideas. Anyone with an idea of fundraising can come along and attend this meeting at 8.30pm and contribute. A reminder also that there are sponsorship and membership renewals to be collected from generous benefactors around the locality who had pledged funds in lieu of membership and sponsorship deals. Please contact members of the committee regarding these matters asap.
Aghadoe Project Seeding will take place on part of the grounds soon and power and water are almost ready to be brought on site which will help development works in due course.
The Club is planning an Open Day later in September / October to invite all contributors to come and experience the new venue and see what we are doing with the new pitches etc.
COACHES As well as players our Coaches and mentors are the core of the Club. We urgently need coaches to take charge of underage teams from Under 14s to Under 18s. We need 3-4 adults to help out with each team and if you are thinking about lending a hand we can arrange for full coaching and affiliation. This is a very exciting time to get involved. Contact Feargal Courtney or Paul Murphy for details. Even giving a hand with travelling to matches is a huge help for any coach. Parents are most welcome to come and join a coach and lend a hand.
Irish Women’s Rugby team Congratulations to our Kerry girls Siobhán Fleming and Sharon Lynch and the rest of the Irish rugby team for a wonderful effort in the Rugby World Cup in France this summer. They were brilliant. The win over World Champs New Zealand was the pinnacle for them and it probably took its toll overall. England had a superb team although Ireland would have preferred to have met them in the final than the semi’s. Well done all round.

Workmen’s
Rowing Club
THREE CHEERS to all the crews, trainers and families of the Workmen’s Rowing Club, you all put in a stellar performance last weekend at the All Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships in Waterville. All crews reached the final..which in itself is such an achievement, but if there were medals and trophies given out to the club that had the most amount of ‘craic”, sportsmanship and food..it would definitely be the Workmen’s RC. Our Chairman Timmy was very proud of everyone, as we remembered Brendan through out the weekend, knowing how much he would love to have been in the thick of it all. Also in all our thoughts is Pat “Doc” Doherty, all the club wishes you the very best during your recovery. Another friend of the Workmen’s RC Oonagh O’Connor paid us a visit on Saturday, great to see Oonagh amongst us all.

national finalS ATHLONE
Killarney South has its first representatives heading to Athlone last weekend. The Kerry team had a big turnout for the event on both days. There was an early start on both days with excellent weather conditions in Athlone. The course was split into to two distances, the longer distance 800m contained a steep hill and a changing surface, and the shorter distance was more level and smooth for the athletes.
the boys under 14 was a straight final event. Kerry started out well and were in contention with the leaders throughout the race.
Mark Cooper ran very well on his leg of the relay negotiating the difficult terrain with ease. The team (David Leane, Rory Murphy, Mark Cooper, Alex O’ Connor and Tadhg Dennehy) battled hard in the final leg of the event and were rewarded with 4th place and the peweter medal. Kerry’s under 14 girls dominated their event on every leg. Fional Doyle and Shona O’Brien gave technical and tactical excellence in their legs. The team were convincing winners.
the boys under 12 team were involved in a difficult competition with many of Irelands best athletes in this age group present and on the hunt for gold in Athlone.
This young team (Darragh Fleming, Jack Greaney, Sean and Tim Pullman Daamen, Eoghan Hassett and Kilian Burke) performed very well on Saturday to win their semi-final in fine style.
On Sunday they lined up in a competitive final. Each athlete gave workman like performances on the difficult course. They eventually finished a creditable 5th place.
the kerry girls under 12 team (Rachel Dwyer, Ava Fitzmaurice, Aoife Kearns, Natasha Myers, Marie Courtney and Kate Murphy) qualified on Saturday in 3rd place in their semiófinal. On Sunday they competed out of their skins and were rewarded with the Bronze medal. A terrific achievement for all those involved in managing and training all teams.
Valuable experience was learned for the future for all athletes in Athlone.
