this a an­other mas­sive suc­cess, míle buíochas!

It’s that time of year again when we are plan­ning our an­nual Xmas event which takes place on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22nd.

Beale GAA Club ex­tend sym­pa­thies to the O’Con­nell fam­ily on their recent be­reave­ment. Mike’s sis­ter, Mau­reen, passed to her eter­nal re­ward af­ter a long ill­ness, bravely borne. Ar dheis Dé grub a h-anam uasal. Mike is former club vice-chair­man and is a very ac­tive and in­flu­en­tial mem­ber of our ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee. His son, Jake, is player rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee and an ace for­ward on our se­nior team, while Andy, Elaine and Brenda, have all donned the club colours.

Fol­low us on Face­book, Beale GAA Club, for up­dates. LOTTO: The lat­est draw took place in Kear­ney’s bar on Satur­day night. The num­bers drawn were 3, 6, 18, and 27. There was no win­ner of the jack­pot of €5,300. Lucky dip win­ners were Sea­mus Con­way, Lac­cabawn; Jimmy Ho­ran, Castleis­land; James Ma­her, Church­town; Jack O Con­nor, Scarta­glen and Tom Browne, Castleis­land. Our thanks to Betty and her staff for their cour­tesy and co-op­er­a­tion. NORTH KERRY IN­TER­ME­DI­ATE: The Ju­nior team had an ex­cel­lent win against Lis­towel in the semi fi­nal which was played in Knock­nagoshel on Sun­day.

Des­mond’s had a dream start with a Gra­ham O Con­nor goal in the 2nd minute quickly fol­lowed by a pointed free from Tommy Walsh. They had an ad­van­tage in phys­i­cal­ity but their move­ment for each other; their ca­pac­ity to move the ball quickly and ac­cu­rately and abil­ity to take their chances proved de­ci­sive. Lis­towel closed the gap but points from Sean Lynch and an­other goal from Tadhg Walsh gave them a 2-8 to 0-6 ad­van­tage at the break. Two goals from Lis­towel in the 3rd quar­ter nar­rowed the gap to 4 but Des­mond’s scored the fi­nal 6 points to run out de­served win­ners.

It was over­all, a team per­for­mance and they can look for­ward to the fi­nal with quiet con­fi­dence
