Sam’s tour of Kerry is still far from over

Pieta counsellors Breda Kearney, Andrea Donovan, Ann Lucid Daly, Celine Aherne, Tess Dalton plus special guest Ava McCarthy gave an extra warm welcome to Kerry players Jack Barry, Diarmuid O’Connor, Greg Horan, Jack O’Shea and Joe O’Connor

The Holy Grail is continuing its tour of the Kingdom.

The Sam Maguire Cup – the most sought after trophy in the country – is in huge demand and players and officials are continuing their tour of schools, clubs and other facilities.

The team of therapists in Pieta Tralee had a welcome visitor when the All-Ireland champions, represented by players Jack Barry, Dermot O’Connor, Greg Horan, Jack O’Shea and Joe O’Connor, called with Sam and posed for several photographs.

Meanwhile, members of the public have been invited to have their photograph taken with the Sam Maguire at the Ross Café on Upper Lewis Road, Killarney on Monday next at a reception organised by the Kerry Mental Health Association.

The Sam Maguire is on tour

The precious silverware will be available from 10.00am to 2.00pm to mark World Mental Health Day and a number of the victorious Kerry panel will be in attendance.

Milltown/Castlemaine GAA will welcome Sam to Paddy Burke Memorial Park on Tuesday evening next at 6.30pm.

After a terrific year for our Kerry senior football team in which the county claimed its 38th All-Ireland Senior Football Championship success, it will be a fantastic experience for club members to have the opportunity to come and see Sam close at the club grounds.

“We are also very pleased to confirm to our members that a number of the successful Kerry squad will be in attendance on the evening which is sure to make the occasion extra special,” said club PRO Dara O’Connor.

The club asked that all members either wear their Kerry GAA colours or their own club strip.
