Family matters: Kerry stars Micheál and Siobhán Burns offer some skills tips online

THERE might be no football to be played or enjoyed – at any level – at the moment but members of Dr Crokes GAA Club are determined to keep their fitness levels topped up in any way they can.

The club has organised a number of online coaching clinics in which former senior team trainer and Kerry manager Pat OShea, and key players, such as former Kerry star Eoin Brosnan and current inter-county stars Micheál Burns and his sister Siobhan, pass on some top tips.

Also hosting online sessions are recently retired Kerry ladies’ captain Amanda Brosnan, former Kerry players Johnny Buckley, Fionn Fitzgerald and Daithi Casey and current inter-county panel member and black and amber sharpshooter Tony Brosnan.

Others to show their skills include skilful centre forward Gavin O’Shea, hurlers Brendan McMahon and Kevin Landers, Kate Stack, Rheanne O’Shea, John and Michael Lebihan, Oisín O’Connor, Daniel Healy and Stephen Brosnan.

In addition to the online coaching initiative, Dr Crokes members also embraced the Darkness into Light Sunrise projects on Saturday morning by partaking in dawn walks at a number of different locations in and around Killarney.

The gatherings were organised by the club’s healthy sub-committee committee, under the leadership of chairman Eamonn Fitzgerald, and club members around the world joined in and posted their videos on social media.
