Division 5 Group A:
Kerins O’Rahillys 7-06
We made the trip north to Knocknagoshel worthwhile on Sunday when accounting for the locals in division 5; a great start which saw us find the net on 4 occasions was the foundation for this victory and despite a comeback from the home side in the 2nd half we tacked on a further 3 goals to record a fine win.
Team: Killlian Moran, Gary Nolan, Tom McGrath, Kieran Mangan, Rory O’Connor (1-0), Jason O’Leary, Seán Collins, John C O’Connor, Darragh McElligott (0-01), Donagh O’Brien (1-0), Rory Molloy (0-01), Gearóid Hartnett, Aidan Mangan (0-01), Johnny Keane (1-01), Padraig Griffin (4-0).
Sub: John McGrath ( 0-02)
We next play Austin Stacks on Sunday next 17th June in Strand Road @ 14.oo
Our game scheduled for Friday night last 8th June did not take place as Tarbert could not field a team.
Minor County Championship:
We will play Feale Rangers in the county minor championship on Friday night 22nd June in Mountcoal where throw in is @ 19.00
We would like to wish Alan O’Sullivan all the best as Kerry embark on their journey in the inaugural Munster U-20 championship when they take on Limerick on Friday night next 15th in Newcastlewest @ 19.30 Given that we have won the last 4 All Ireland minor titles, there are great expectations around this squad but the loss of marquee players Seán O’Shea and David Clifford to the senior squad could seriously mitigate against this group as the championship unfolds.
Friends of Strand Road:
Project 200 is well underway with a hugely encouraging response to date. The objective is to raise the current membership to 200 over the coming months by reactivating some former members as well as welcoming new members on board. The committee, chaired by Billy Thompson will be working on this for the next while – if you are interested in supporting this initiative you can get in contact with Billy or any committee member.
