The big result of last weekend was the win by Tralee Parnell’s over reigning champions Kilgarvan in the semi-final of the Co. Intermediate Hurling Championship. They won by just one point, 1 - 25 to 2 - 21 after extra time, following an excellent contest between two evenly matched and very sporting sides. This win is significant in that it is only the second year ever that this new club has been playing in adult competitions and is a tribute to all who work so hard at all levels at the Caherslee based outfit. They will meet Dr. Crokes in the Final after they had a 4 - 13 to 2 - 11 win over Kilmoyley. The Final is scheduled for the weekend of 19/20 September.
