This meeting is open to all parents and interested parties and we would very much welcome your attendance.

U13 Girls: Co. Championship QF: Well done to all the U13 girls who defeated Ballymacelligott in a very entertaining game last Sunday afternoon. They played very well as a team and were rewarded with a convincing victory. The girls gave it their all and this was seen in the fact that there were 9 different scorers. Austin Stacks finished with a tally of 3 goals and 14 points and can be very proud of their performance. We will be at home to Fossa in the Semi Final this Sunday September 24th at 12.30pm
U14 Girls:Our U14’s played in their first outing in North Kerry League Div 1 at home to Listowel last Friday evening. While the girls ultimately lost the match, the coaches are really proud of the team performance. It’s funny to say that even though it was a loss, the all-round commitment and team work saw the girls play their best match all year. Having led by six points with fifteen minutes to go, Listowel’s fitness and experience at Division 1 level told in the end and a brace of goals saw them run out comfortable winners. Our Scorers tonight were Eimear Dillane 0-4; Ellen Lucey 1-02; Penny Costello 1-05; Aoibhinn Hennessy 0-2 and Kara Kirby 1-0. Finally, special mention to Jess Leen, who played her first match with the Club tonight at wing back! She’s following in the steps of her Dad Kenneth who played senior for the club in the not-too-distant past! Next up for the team is an away game V Abbeydorney at 6:30pm this Thursday Sept 21st.

Senior Ladies Intermediate Co. Championship Rd. 6 FT Austin Stacks 3-7 Rathmore 7-8. Played last Sunday morning in Connolly Park at the earlier time of 11.15am. This game pitted us against Table Toppers Rathmore who travelled with a full-strength side. HT Rathmore 6-5 Austin Stacks 1-4. Both sides ran their bench and while Rathmore were comfortable throughout, Stacks played good passages of football too and contributed to a fine sporting match with good scores taken by both sides. Next Sunday is Rd 7 the final round and we will be at home to Corcha Dhuibhne at 12pm. The top 4 teams will contest the semi-finals – current table standings see Rathmore, Scartaglin, MKL Gaels & Firies at the top but it’s all very tight and there’s lots to play for in this weekend’s final round.
