Our B team under the management of Eugene McGrath and assisted by Tony Corridon and Liam Kissane made their bow in Division 5, Group A when taking on Scartaglin in our first outing on Sunday. After a bright start we led by 4 points to 1 after 15 minutes but a goal for the home side brought them back into the game and they dominated from here to half time to lead 1-08 to 0-05 at the interval. Again we started the second half on the front foot with Shane McElligott pointing but a second goal for Scartaglin seemed to take the wind out of our sails and we went down eventually on a final score line of 3-11 to 0-08.
Team: Cillian Moran, Gary Nolan, Kieran Mangan, Rory O’Connor, Jason O’Leary, James O’Connor, Thomas McGrath, John McGrath, Aaron Roche, Johnny Keane, Seán Griffin, Shane McElligott & Gearoid Hartnett.
The next game in this competition is on week end of 25th March when we are home to Churchill.
Strictly Club Dancing:
With less than a week to go to our 2nd annual show, the dancers have ramped up their rehearsals to ensure all will be right on the night; rehearsals, for the most part, have been taking place in the Brandon hotel but having had a preview of some of the moves, one would suspect that some extra drills are being performed at home! Choreographer Jackie O’Mahony, has along with all participants, worked tirelessly to bring together a thrilling spectacular and its not to be missed. Its a night for the community to come together, have some fun and banter and as well as raising funds for the club, two charities will also benefit to the tune of €500.
The judges on the night ( Mary Gaine, Rosie McGrath, Terry O’Brien and Seán O’Sullivan ) will nominate a winner and there will also be a popular votes winner as voted by the audience; you can vote in advance for your preferred couple by logging on to our website ( kerinsorahillys.com) and following the instructions there in.
Tickets for the night (€20 adults, U-15s €10) are still available from the club house, Morans Foodstore or any of the participants but are selling fast, so dont be disappointed, get yours early. The show is timed for 8 pm, doors opening at 7.

U-14: Our U-14 boys had a comprehensive win over town rivals Austin Stacks on Saturday evening in the Coiste Trá Lí league winning on a final score line of 5-17 to 2-10 in a game played at Healy Park. Aided by the stiff breeze in the first half, we took the game to our opponents and had our first score, a goal from Tomás Kennedy within minutes; this was quickly followed by points from full forward Danny Hennessy and centre forward Ben O’Brien before Ben Hanafin, fired to the net to leave us 2-02 to nil ahead; Stacks gradually got into the game and had registered 1-03 on the score board but we finished the half in style when Ben O’Brien had another goal which was followed by another Danny Hennessy point.
The second period saw Stacks more in the game and after 10 minutes we were a goal to the good, 3-06 to 2-06; however, we then took over around middle third with midfielders Jack Savage and Seán Healy to the fore and tacked on 2-04 without reply in the following 10 minutes; our defence too was outstanding with our half backs of Gearoid Meehan, Eric McMahon and Coren Hughes in unforgiving mood and any time Stacks threatened our rearguard, Jake Foley, Tom Flavin and Matthew Higgins were equal to the task.
Overall this was a fine team effort with each and every player playing their part.
Team: Thomas Maguire, Jake Foley, Tom Flavin, Matthew Higgins, Gearoid Meehan, Eric McMahon, Coren Hughes, Jack Savage, Seán Healy, Ben Hanafin, Ben O’Brien, Cian Moran, Cormac Gallagher, Danny Hennessy & Tomás Kennedy. Sub used: Conor Cronin
