Lixnaw or Leac Snámha, “The Flagstone of the Swimming Pool”, nestles in the heart of North Kerry, especially the hurling heartland of the county. Hurling has been played here since the middle of the 19th century, with reports in The Kerry Chronicle of 1863 of a contest between Lixnaw and Kilmoyley. Hurling has always been an integral part of life in the parish.
The club had played in various pitches in the locality until in January 1965 it purchased the present grounds. Páirc na Dithréibhe / Hermitage Park was officially opened in May 1982. It was redeveloped in 2008 and again in 2017/2018. Lixnaw can boast a proud role of honour with nine County Senior Hurling titles, the latest of these in 2018, and ten Minor Hurling Championships. We have enjoyed success at all age levels and our players have featured on county, inter-varsity and provincial teams.
