Beale juniors conceded the quarter final of the Cahill Cup to Annauscal on Friday evening as we were unable to field a team.

Beale seniors play Ballyduff in the opening round of the North Kerry Championship in Ballyduff. Our juniors received a bye in the first round, while our minors take on Moyvane/Tarbert and our Under-21s are also pitted against Moyvane/Tarbert.

Shannon Rangers’ campaign in the County Senior Championship has come to an end, losing out to a much stronger St Brendan’s on Saturday evening in Tarbert. Beale players on the team were Jeremy King and Darragh Buckley. St Brendan’s put their stamp on the game, rattling the net from the throw-in. However, the home side kept them in contention and were just four points adrift going into the second half. Goals were the order of the day for St Brendan’s, raising the green flag six times and the game ended 6-11 to 0-15.

Beale GAA Club is saddened to hear of the death of John Carroll, Loyola, Ballybunion. John’s brother, Jimmy, has been prominent in GAA circles for many years and acted as treasurer of the club through the 1980s. An ardent supporter, Jimmy was among the many volunteers who developed the pitch facilities in the late 1970s. As well as raising funds, Jimmy was a great entertainer and in general, came to the rescue when work had to be done. When researching our club history, “Sand in our Boots”, Jimmy gladly shared with us his memories and photographs. Beale GAA Club extend sympathies to the family of John Carroll.
