Members of Killarney Celtic Football Club have launched a fundraiser to bring their U11 team abroad to an international youth football tournament next Easter.

This week parents and club members are busy selling tickets for the Barcelona Cup Raffle to raise enough money to bring the team over.

The last time Celtic went to the Barcelona Cup was in 2008 with a team that had brothers Paudie and David Clifford with them, club stalwart, Mikey Lyne, explained.

"They [U11s] are an excellent team who won a Kerry trophy last year and came close to winning two - losing on penalties in the other," he said.

"We have three sets of brothers going this time so they have a great example to follow. The competition is a very popular international cup competition with teams from all over the world. It's held over two days in Barcelona in Easter. It will be a great experience for the kids. Kerry won the Under 15 cup last year and will be sending another team again this year."

He added he'd like to thank the very generous sponsors for helping with the prizes, the parents who are busy fundraising and the club for supporting them.

Prizes

Up for grabs is match tickets for UEFA 2024 qualifier Ireland V France as the 1st prize. It includes a one night stay in the 4 star Herbert Park Hotel on March 27, 2023.

The 2nd prize is match tickets for UEFA 2024 qualifier Ireland V Holland on September 10 2023. Other prizes include a €350 tooth whitening kit from Bridge Place Dental, a €160 voucher for driving lessons from East Kerry School of Motoring, complimentary jazz Sunday lunch in the Dunloe Hotel for two and a €75 voucher for Killarney Oils.

The draw takes place on Monday, January 1, 2023. Tickets are €5 each or three for €10.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
