The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - CLUB NEWS -


There was no win­ner of our Club Lotto Jack­pot on Sun­day night last. The num­bers drawn were 09, 17, 21 & 30. The five €30 con­so­la­tion prizes went to Mar­garet Kennedy As­dee, Mike Mo­ri­arty (Ju­nior) Der­ry­more, Sea­mus Trant Cur­ra­heen, John Trant (Ju­nior) Hare St. and Jackie Power Bal­ly­roe.

Next week’s Lotto will have a Jack­pot of €3,200 and the draw will take place on Sun­day night Nov 11th in Keane’s Bar. Lotto tick­ets can be pur­chased on­line, from any club of­fi­cer or at the fol­low­ing out­lets: Sea­mus O’Sul­li­van Master Butch­ers, O’Sheas Shop and Ser­vice Sta­tion, Poff Mo­tors, Noyeks, Byrnesworth, Rock Inn, Dwyer’s Bar, Skelper Quanes, Bet­tys Bar and Keane’s of Cur­ra­heen.


We held an in­for­ma­tion night last Fri­day night in the Rose Ho­tel with the aim be­ing to to en­cour­age as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to take a more ac­tive role in the club’s ac­tiv­i­ties for 2019 as well as in­crease num­bers in all age groups. Club Chair­man, Jimmy Mul­li­gan gave the wel­come notes, out­lin­ing the fact that we are a Tralee based club with good fa­cil­i­ties such as an astro pitch, a gym and com­mu­nity rooms and ap­pealed to par­ents and guardians to take up tasks within the club, main­tain­ing that there is some­thing for ev­ery­one. Next up was in-com­ing Kerry Mi­nor Man­ager, James Costello, who de­liv­ered the key­note ad­dress and out­lined the ad­van­tages of play­ing with a smaller club where a player’s lead­er­ship qual­i­ties are height­ened and he also touched on how play­ers within the club can de­velop and progress to wear the county colours.

Fi­nally, a Q & A ses­sion on how the club can in­crease par­tic­i­pa­tion was open to the floor and peo­ple gave their views which will be im­ple­mented in the com­ing year.


St Pats’ James Costello has been put for­ward as the new Kerry Mi­nor Man­ager suc­ceed­ing Peter Keane. James has been in­volved with St Pats all his life and has served as a ju­ve­nile coach in the club at all lev­els. As a player, he has won nu­mer­ous county ti­tles as a ju­ve­nile and se­nior player and at in­ter-county level, he was in­volved with the Kerry Ju­niors play­ing as a full-back from 1998, cul­mi­nat­ing in an All-Ire­land Ju­nior ti­tle play­ing in the same po­si­tion in 2006. In the same year, he also trained the St Bren­dan’s Board U21s to win the county ti­tle. He has also trained and man­aged the St Pat’s se­nior team. Away from the foot­ball field, he has served as the Sec­re­tary and Chair­per­son of the club. Un­der his lead­er­ship, he over­saw the im­ple­men­ta­tion of our 5-year plan, our astro pitch was down to his vi­sion and our Academy also got into full swing. Up un­til re­cently, James had been in­volved with var­i­ous de­vel­op­ment squads, most no­tably the U16 team and we all in St Pats wish him the very best as he at­tempts to land our mi­nors an un­prece­dented 6th ti­tle in a row.
