Yesterday witnessed a remarkable Munster Colleges Football final in Tralee, where Mercy Mounthawk played Tralee CBS at Austin Stack Park. Congratulation to Mercy Mounthawk on winning their first Munster title, while commiserations go out to Tralee CBS who put up a great battle in what was an excellent contest. Sending best wishes to Mercy Mounthawk as they now progress to the All-Ireland semi-final stage.
Finally, we look forward to welcoming Mayo to Tralee, for the 3rd round of the National Football League in Austin Stack Park next Saturday night. A sell-out crowd is anticipated for what promises to be a great contest with Kerry.
