Our next fixture will see us travel to Spa Killarney next weekend for round 8 of the senior county league division 1. A place in this years final is still very much in our own hands as we lie in fourth position in the table, 4 points adrift of Dr Crokes but only 2 behind An Ghaeltacht and one behind our next opponents, Spa. A win at the weekend would see us very much in the mix and your support on the day would be much appreciated. The game goes ahead on Sunday next 1st July @ 14.00
Kerins O’Rahillys B:
Having lost out narrowly on the play offs for promotion from division 5, we are now in the running for the shield competition which sees us drawn against Dingle next weekend; this is a home fixture with the date and time to be finalised this week.
Our minors played Feale Rangers in Mountcoal on Friday night last (22nd) in a preliminary round of the county championship; we were competitive for three quarters of the game but the loss of TJ McMahon and Darragh Fitzgerald to injury was too much on the night and the north Kerry side ran out winners on a final score line of 4-12 to 2-08. Well done to Paul, Seán & Norman for their efforts with this squad and to the lads who gave their all – this is a very young side with the majority of them eligible for this grade again next year and for many it was their first taste of county championship action – beidh lá eile agaibh gan dabht!
Congrats to David and Barry John on picking up Munster senior medals on Sat night – David was the best midfielder on view making some great fetches with Barry John giving his usual all action display when introduced – though tougher tests lie ahead, this was very impressive from Kerry, gaining their biggest win over the Rebels in 80 years. We can all look forward now to the Super 8s and some more great days out.
Congrats to Kerry who advanced to the Munster final on Friday night last with a facile win over Waterford; well done to our own Alan O’Sullivan ( physical trainer) for his involvement with this team.
The Munster final against old rivals Cork, will now take place this coming Friday night in Austin Stack Park where throw in is @ 19.30; a different challenge undoubtedly awaits next week but despite the lack of real competition to date, the squad looks to be in great shape and a big performance is anticipated.
