St. Brendan’s AC would like to say thank you to both the hurling & football clubs for giving us permission to use the sports field for our annual open sports on Monday 2nd June 2014.  A great turnout from various clubs outside of Kerry including St. Mary’s of Rathkeale, who once again won the shield for best visiting club.  West Muskerry & UL had representatives there as did many clubs from Kerry such as An Ríocht, Farranfore/Maine Valley, Spa/Muckross, Listowel & Tralee Harriers.  There were many races from tiny tots to u15 & the family relay race which was very exciting, as it was a very closely contested race in the end!  But the most fun to be had was with the novelty moms & dads races ("Power Run") which were set by club coach Artur Nowak.  The adults had great fun negotiating weights whilst running & the children thoroughly enjoyed watching their parents participating also!!

That evening the end of year barbecue was held at the retreat centre by kind permission of the nuns.  A lovely fun filled evening was had by all children, parents & coaches.  St Brendan’s club awards were also presented on the night.  Thank you to all coaches & parents for their help during the year.  But most especially thank you to the children for participating during the year be it at training or competition.  Athletics has now finished for the year but we look forward to seeing you again in November.
