CLUB A G M. The 28th Annual General Meeting of St. Marys Asdee G A A Club took place at the Community Centre on Friday  night last, February 7th where a large attendance were present that saw just one change in Officership from the previous year; Michael Walsh has vacated the positions of Coaching Officer and will be filled at the first meeting of the Club. Prior to the Meeting getting underway there was a minutes silence observed for all who suffered bereavements during the past year. Chairman Padraig Vallelly welcomed everybody to the meeting and thanked everybody for their wonderful support once again during the past year.

A place in the clubs history books was created with our senior footballers reaching a Munster Junior “B” Final which is down for decision on Sunday February 23rd against Charleville and he urged to all to support on the day.   A special word of thanks went; Brandon Products who kindly sponsored a set of Jersies for the Club, and indeed all the various sponsors down through the year too numerous to mention He congratulated the Coiste Na Nog members from Asdee who were part of the success story with Asdee/Bally at under age. and requested the club members to get more involved in fundraising. He thanked the group who went hunting the Wren and went on to thank everybody for their support. Secretary, Mark O Hanlon gave a detailed account of the Clubs activities on and off the field during the year.

It was a busy year for the Club yet again having teams in all competition in North Kerry and the County competitions with Seniors, Minors, Under 21s,Coiste Na Nog, Cumbann Na Bun Scoil and local Blitzs. In the North Kerry League the Senior team were unlucky not to reach the semi final in Division 2.  Again our seniors put up a marvellous performance before going down to Beale in the Senior Championship. However the County Novice Shield was celebrated in some style; Clounmacon after extra time, Renard in the semi final and our great rivals from Ballylongford were defeated in a rousing County Final. He finished by thanking all the players for their total commitment during 2013.
