Conrad for National Games.
Local athlete, Conrad McCullough, from Dysart, has qualified for the National Games in 2014, in Gymnastics.   The finals will be held in U.L., Limerick in June of next year.   Conrad is an "all-rounder", he enjoys swimming, hiking and cycling and, with his mother and father, Breda and Brendan, has taken part in several charity cycles over the years, and spends his weekends hiking and cycling in the Burren.
Ring of Kerry Cycle.
The McCullough family, Breda, Brendan and Conrad,  recently joined the 10,000 cyclists taking part in the Ring of Kerry Cycle.   They raised €1,360, which will go to a Centre for Cancer Care and wish to acknowledge the support they received from all who gave to their cause.
Under age Hurling.
Two teams from the parish took part in the u12 final weekend in Cusack Park.  They won all their games, with the first team, captained by Ashley Brohan,  having a win over Sixmilebridge "A" and the second team, with Jordan Howard, defeating Ogonelloe/Scariff in the finals.   
The teams put in great performances in their games and credit is due to the boys, and their parents and mentors.  
Later on in the year, the local G.A.A. Club will present medals to the teams in recognition of their achievements made during the year.
Adult Hurling.
Following on a good League campaign, the Junior hurlers topped their group and were promoted.   In the League semi-final, however, they were defeated by a stronger Ballyea team.   The Juniors play the first round of the Championship, meeting Scariff, this weekend.
Recent Death.
The death has taken place, in Swindon, England, of Teresa Crowe, wife of Tom Crowe, formerly of Dromina, Dysart.
