On Monday evening, the Garvey’s Senior Football Championship was launched at the beautiful Tralee Bay Wetlands.
Representatives from all 17 teams were present. Tim Murphy, Chairperson of Kerry GAA spoke of the great relationship that existed between Garvey's and Kerry GAA since 2011 and hoped for it to continue well into the future. Jim Garvey representing Garvey's reminded all present how embedded the GAA is in the local community, very much the same way Garveys are also at the heart of the community. Jim spoke about the buzz in the shop on a Monday morning after a County Championship game with so many of the staff and the customers involved one way or another with the games!
