Sunday May 27th – A Date for the Diary for every GAA supporter:
The Tarbert senior team play the Legion Club from Killarney in an important County League fixture in Shannon Park on Sunday May 27, 2007. Immediately afterwards, the club will host a very special tribute to our own club players and members that are gone to their eternal reward.
This year we will also be paying a special tribute to those Kerry players who trained and played under the legendary Dr. Eamonn O'Sullivan. Dr. John Coolohan will give the oration and pay a special tribute to all those Kerry players who came under the direction of this great Kerry GAA icon.
Kerry's own unmistakable Weeshie Fogarty, recognized and respected the length and breath of Ireland, will be launching his epic biography that week on another Kerry icon – the late Dr. Eamonn O'Sullivan – entitled 'A Man Before his Time'.

Weeshie, himself a proud lifelong Legion player and supporter, will be the club's guest of honour on that day and will be signing copies of a brilliant historical record and tribute to this legendary Kerry football team trainer. Dr Eamonn trained All-Ireland winning teams in five different decades from
1924 to 1964.

In addition, the club is organising the first ever Bring & Buy sale of football programmes, books etc. We are asking people to donate any unwanted, duplicate or old programmes, sports books, etc. to the club. All proceeds will go towards the 'Field and Facilities fund' again taking place in Shannon Park
on Sunday 27th May. All donations of programmes /books etc can be handed into Eithne Griffin in the Tarbert Pharmacy over the coming days. Already the club has secured an entire collection of programmes and sports books from an anonymous donor and lifelong Tarbert supporter.
Weeshie has also kindly donated a unique item for auction on the day – more details on that later. Again all proceeds going towards the fund.

In addition, we are delighted to put on public display in the new gym the 1903 All-Ireland senior medal won by Austin Stack – We hope this piece of history will be part of a great occasion for the club as we salute both our own club players/members and the men in the green and gold of times past.
A great day is promised with events kicking off with this key County League
game in Shannon Park at 2.30pm.

General Election:
As the General Election comes to a close, candidates are putting their final touches to their campaign. In this year’s General Election, Camp area is a part of the North Kerry Constituency. North Kerry would be one of the more predictable constituencies in the country with all three outgoing deputies likely to be reelected.
