Killarney Camogie U-14 team had the time of their lives at the All-Ireland Féile 2018, club officials have revealed. The club have also expressed their gratitude to Moycullen Camogie whose hospitality was superb. The girls, they say, have made lasting friendships with the team.

On Friday evening Killarney played two games against Craughwell and Edendork. The girls gave 100% on the pitch and Craughwell was a competitive game but Edendork was a different story as their side was just too strong. On Saturday the girls played their host club Moycullen in a nail-biting encounter that finished with the sides level. As they left the pitch, the team was greeted by the president of the Camogie Association, Kathleen Woods. After a few photos and a chat, the girls hopped on the bus again to head to Roscommon to play Crosserlough in the Shield quarter-final. Although beaten well, the tenacity and the passion the team displayed was inspiring.

It was a tremendous experience with an abundance of camogie played and an All-Ireland quarter-final appearance is a fantastic achievement. The club thanked Mary Ryan and the Stack family in Tricel, Jessica O' Connor in Vodafone and Killarney Credit Union for their generous sponsorship and support. Best wishes to Cliona Lynch on her recovery from a knee injury sustained in the quarter-final.

Well done to Killarney Camogie trainers Ceara Moore, Paul O’Brien and Pat Sheenan and to players Sarah Looney, Yasmin O’Brien, Yen Leniston, Aimee Coffey, Clíona Lynch, Geraldine Murphy, Keelyn O’Leary, Ilona Sheehan, Lisa Lenihan, Clodagh Lucey, Jessica Bell, Anne Hickey, Heather Culloty, Alannah Houlihan, Chloe McCarthy, Áine Devlin, Éabha Lynch, Niamh Coughlan, Kathryn Ryan, Hannah Ryan and Tia McNabb. Congratulations to fellow Kerry side Causeway who won an All-Ireland Féile for the first time ever.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”

Those taking part left Ross Castle and were treated to a phenomenal boat ride in the expert hands of Diarmuid ‘Dux’ O’Donoghue of Gap of Dunloe Traditional Boat Tours. The O’Donoghue family entertained the entire group with a range of fascinating stories outlining the history of the lakes of Killarney and Killarney National Park.

The group set out from Lord Brandon’s Cottage and walked the 11K through the iconic Gap of Dunloe, with two AADI families and their dogs taking part in the full walk. This was followed by a well-deserved meal and some rest and relaxation at Kate Kearney’s Cottage. Flemings Taxi’s Killarney brought the group back to Ross Castle, Killarney upon completion of the event.
