Award winners at the Kerry Ladies Football Awards night

The guest of honour Sean Kelly (former president of the GAA) had warm words for the Kerry county board and said it was great to see the promotion of ladies football back to where it belongs on the sport pages with their GAA counterparts. He encouraged the senior team to stick to the task for 2011 and success was around the corner. He encouraged more people to get involved with the ladies game and to always believe in what they were doing.

So with that over it was to the floor and Niall Callaghan kept the 200 strong gathering rocking till the small hours and when he exited stage left the seniors and Kilcummin decided to run their own X factor competition with plenty of on hand Simon Cowells to give their comments.
