NORTH KERRY A G M. The Annual General Meeting of the North Kerry
Football Board will take place at Christys “The Well Bar”, Listowel on
Wednesday January 25th with a starting time of 8pm. Eddie Anthony
Walsh from the local club will once again be seeking re-election as
Vice Chairman. Local delegates will be in attendance. Certainly Eddie
has proved to be an outstanding Officer for both his Club and District
Board and who was also a well know Referee at senior level; but even
though now semi retired he was recently called upon once again to help
out in an hour of need when there was nobody available on the day for
the McCarthys Insurance Brokers Senior League Division 2 Final between
Ballylongford and Ballyduf for one reason or another; it was then
left to Eddie to officiate and the dedicated 70 plus years of age
probably wrote himself into at least the North Kerry Football History
FIXTURES. In the Under 21 North Kerry Championship; sponsored by
Dennehy Vetenary Clinic,Duagh; Asdee will be joined by Ballylongford
and Beale and they will take on Knocknagoshel/Brosna in the opening

WEBSITES. Asdee G A A website is now up and running once again so for
