Dr Croke’s are County Champions

18 Oct

Killarney is celebrating after the Dr. Croke’s club won its first county final in 10 years. They defeated Tralee’s Austin Stacks 1-15 to 0-11 in a well-attended match at Austin Stack Park in Tralee this afternoon. Crokes always had the upper hand with a second-half, Colm-Cooper goal proving decisive. What became known as the battle of the black and amber – because both clubs use the same colours – developed into a strong rivalry between Kerry’s largest two towns. It was one of the most intensely anticipated finals in recent years.

GAA Academy plan appealed to An Bord Pleanala

30 Sep

Plans to develop a GAA Academy at Currans, as part of Austin Stack Park moving from its current home, have been appealed to An Bord Pleanala. The proposed development at Crag, Currans, Farranfore, involves the creation of a sports ground with four playing pitches, as well as outline planning permission for a building with changing rooms and gym, and a grounds maintenance building.

This GAA Academy development at Currans was given the go ahead by Kerry County Council in August, but it’s now been appealed to An Bord Pleanala by Michael J Horgan and John Horan. It’s part of a project which aims to see Austin Stack Park move to a purpose built 15,000 capacity stadium in the grounds of Ballybeggan Park, Tralee; and the development of new facilities for the Kingdom Coursing Club at Ballinorig.

Several objections to the proposed redevelopment of Ballybeggan race course have recently been lodged with An Bord Pleanala, following Kerry County Council’s approval for part of the development. Meanwhile plans to develop a major shopping centre and residential complex at the site of Austin Stack Park and John Mitchels Club on John Joe Sheehy Road are before An Bord Pleanala, following an oral hearing on the matter two weeks ago in Tralee. An Bord Pleanala is due to make a decision on the development at Currans on February 2nd.
