Flesk rowing celebrate end of season in style

Published

Flesk Valley Rowing Club celebrated the end of another successful season with a summer barbecue and one very special girl became the club’s newest member.

On Saturday the adult members of Flesk Valley Rowing Club came together for a BBQ and social evening at the Killarney Racecourse.

This was also a first opportunity for Steve and Teresa O'Mahony and their daughter Alexis to meet with club members following the Good Friday half-marathon that the club organised in support of Alexis' fund.

“It was great to finally meet the O'Mahony family and to hear about the progress Alexis has been making. Steve and Teresa spoke warmly of the contribution the funds raised were making to Alexis progress and thanked everyone who donated to the fundraiser. On the night the club also presented Alexis with her own club jersey and claimed her as a Flesk Valley girl,” said club official Donal Kelly.

“Thanks to Tadhg Kelly for organising a great evening and to Mark Doe and the staff at the Killarney Racecourse for the good food and hospitality. One of the highlights of the evening was a special delivery of the famous Muckross Ice-cream direct from the creamery at Scartlea, thanks to our chairman John Fleming. It was a great night and wonderful to meet up with old friends again and welcome new ones. We're looking forward to next year's event already.”

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!”
