There is a changing of the guard at the top table of the Killarney Legion Ladies Club after this week’s AGM.

Ted Healy, an underage coach for the past 11 years, has been voted in as chairperson for the coming season, taking over from Selina Looney who vacates the post.

"It is a great honour for me to take the helm of the Legion Ladies, we have a great club and a particularly strong ladies club, and I can assure everyone that I will give it my absolute all,” Ted said.

Ted has been heavily involved with the club over the years from playing at all grades to managing and coaching juvenile teams (both boys and girls) and coordinating the Legion Underage Academy for the past number of years.

“It is a great time to take the lead of our ladies club after the recent change in our club constitution which resulted in us being one of the first clubs in the country to adopt a 'One Club' approach. Our senior ladies are going from strength to strength having won the Donal Curtain Cup earlier this year and I see no reason why we cannot push on from that and achieve even greater things," he added.

“Our underage structures have ensured we have strong numbers in all juvenile grades and more importantly that we provide a fun sporting environment for all our young ladies in which to thrive. We are always looking for new recruits at all grades, so for any young aspiring ladies footballers looking to join an innovative progressive club, feel free to contact us.”

Ted thanked the outgoing chairperson Selina Looney for her hard work and wished her the very best in her future roles.

Also appointed on the night were Mike Doody as vice chair (reappointed) and Oonagh Moynihan as secretary.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
