Cobh Ramblers 1-0 Kerry
When this game eventually got going in Pat O’Brien Park, a change of venue from where it had been re-fixed for, it was the home side that started the better with Jake Lynch flashing a header wide. Kerry then needed a last ditch tackle from Sean Kererski on Tieran O’Brien to keep the game scoreless while Sean Dillane and Ryan Guerin also did very well when Cobh looked like opening the scoring.
Kerry were living on little possession but a Sean Ryan run almost paid dividends and a Sean Horan effort went close but the game remained scoreless at the break.
Kerry began the second half on the front foot with the introduction of Cian Brosnan causing Cobh problems. Rob Vassiu and Cian Clancy were also putting balls into the Cobh danger area but the home side stood firn.
Indeed the only goal of the game came from a well- defended Kerry free. In the 63rd minute Cobh broke and won a free kick of their own on the right wing. This was whipped in by Adam McCarthy and when it broke at the back post Brandon Idah was on hand to smash it home at the near post.
Credit to Kerry as from there on they were on top and deserved an equaliser. Cian Brosnan was almost in but the home keeper Gavin Ryan was quickly off his line. The Sean Ryan rounded the keeper and looked like he had scored but the Cobh defender got back to make a great clearance off the line. From the corner Caolan O’Connell flashed his hearer just over.
Kerry continued to push but the Cobh defence held out for an important win. Kerry will take a lot of positives from their last two games as they head into the summer break.
Mastergeeha and Iveragh United to contest 12’s Cup final:
After two very close semi-finals Mastergeeha and Iveragh United will context the John Murphy 12’s Cup final. Killorglin had two goals from Stevie Gannon in their 2-1 win over Castleisland. Iveragh United made the trip to Killarney and defeated Athletic 2-0. Tadgh and Evan O’Sullivan got the goals for the South Kerry side.
12’s Shield semi-final line-up known:
Dingle Bay needed extra time to book their place in the John Murphy 12’s Shield semi-finals. Their quarter final with Camp Juniors finished level at 1-1 at the end of normal time but the West Kerry side were too strong in extra time winning 4-1. The Dingle Bay goals came from James Hoare 2, Cian McGearailt and Sean Roche.
Killorglin C also went into the hat after a 2-1 win over Ballyhar B. Darragh Lynch and Aaron got the Killorglin goals with Sean Daly scoring for Ballyhar B.
The first of the semi-finals took place on Saturday and it was Dingle Bay that progressed to the final with a 3-1 win over Ballyhar. James Hoare scored twice for the West Kerry side and Sean Roche got the third. Aaron O’Sullivan replied for Ballyhar. Killorglin C and Mastergeeha will meet in the other semi-final.
Killarney Celtic crowned 13’s Cup champions:
For the first time since the 13’s Cup was re-named in honour of Park legend John Joe Naughton it will spend the year in the Killarney Celtic trophy cabinet. At Mounthawk Park they had to come from behind to defeat Killorglin who had taken a first half lead. John Burke got their goal in the 26th minute and they held this until just after the break.
Killarney Celtic got the start they needed to the second half when Eoghan Crowley drew them level in the 37th minute. The longer the half went on the stronger Celtic got and Crowley put them into the lead in the 55th minute with his second goal.
4 minutes later and the Cup was on its way to Killarney when Jack O’Sullivan made it 3-1 to Celtic. Nattingan Ryan of Killarney Celtic was named the Tralee Trophy World Man of the Match and captain Timothy Moynihan collected the Cup from Tommy who was representing the Naughton family.
Tralee Dynamos reach 13 Shield semi-final:
Tralee Dynamos will contest the John Joe Naughton Sheild final where they will take on either Killarney Celtic C or Ballyhar. Dynamos booked their place in the final with a 3-1 win over Fenit. Evan Quilligan, Gearoid O’Shea and Luke Horgan got the Dynamos goals with Gerard O’Connor getting the Fenit goal.
Fenit and Park to contest 14’s Cup final:
It took extra time to separate Fenit and Mastergeeha in the John Murphy 14’s Cup semi-final. The game ended 3-3 after normal time with Mastergeeha coming back from 2-0 down. There goals came from Oisin and Colm O’Leary. But Eddie McCarthy was in great form for Fenit and he ended with 4 goals and Robert Monaghan added their 5th to progress.
The Park were too strong for Killarney Celtic whose only goal came from a Callum O’Grady penalty. Cillian Murphy put the Park 1-0 up at half time and then 2 goals from Cianan Cooney made it 3-0. Celtic pulled a goal back from that penalty but the Park added goals from Conney with his third and Aladesanusi to wrap up their Cup final place.
Inter Kenmare take the final place in 14’s Shield semi-finals:
Inter Kenmare and LB Rovers were involved in a cracker in the Tom Hayes 14’s Shield semi-final. Inter went 3-0 up but LB pulled it back to 3-3 thanks to goals from Jack Mallon 2 and Jack Sheehy. But Inter re-grouped and hit three more without reply. Adem Gul ended with 4 goals and there were added to be goals from Sean Tryvaud and Jamie O’Regan.
The draw for the 14’s Shield semis sees Killorglin B take on Castleisland and Killarney Celtic B facing Inter Kenmare.
2nd Cup of the day for Celtic:
Killarney Celtic picked up their second Cup of the day at Mounthawk Park when they saw of The Park after extra time in the Healy Family 15’s final. Killarney Celtic took the lead in a very close and exciting encounter early in the second half thanks to a Joshua Livingston goal.
However The Park kept battling and were rewarded with an equaliser in the 65th minute courtesy of Dan Fischer. There were no further goals in normal time and in extra time it looked like it would go all the way to penalties. However Cian McMahon had other ideas and he hit a 20 yard screamer to the top corner that deserved to win any Cup final. The Cup was presented to Killarney Celtic by Tadgh Healy representing the Healy family.

Camp Juniors to meet Mastergeeha in 16’s Shield semi-final:
Two goals from Cian O’Grady and one each from Coleman O’Meara and Adam Costello saw Camp Juniors book their place in the Tucker Kelly 16’s Cup semi-final. In this they will meet Mastergeeha who defeated Iveragh United in their semi-final.
Killarney Celtic takes second in the JK Sports 12 Premier:
A 1-1 draw in their final game of the JK Sports 12 Premier between Killarney Celtic and The Park meant that Killorglin were crowned champions by 2 points. JJ Olajitan scored for the Park and Jamie Moynihan for Celtic which brought them to 23 points with Killorglin on 25. Killarney Athletic took third and Park 4th. In the Shield section Iveragh United were the winners from Tralee Dynamos, Inter Kenmare and LB Rovers.
Killarney Celtic end 13 Premier season with a win:
Killarney Celtic had goals from Eoin Crowley, Luke O’Neill and Cathal Kelly in their 3-1 win over Killarney Athletic who had Josh Coffey on the mark. Celtic have played all their games in the Daly’s Supervalu 13 Premier and are on 17 points but Iveragh United had the chance to go level on points and still have games in hand when they played Friday night.
In that game Iveragh drew 0-0 with The Park to move onto 15 points with three games to play. The Park move onto 12 with two games left.
Ballyhar win battle of top 2 to become 14 Division 1 Champions:
This was always going to be the vital game in the Quills Woollen Mills 14’s Division 1 and it was Ballyhar that took the win 1-0 over title contenders Mastergeeha. Stephen Palmer got the only goal that was enough to see the side from Murt Scott Park crowned 14 Division 1 champions.
Killorglin joint top of 15 Premier:
Killorglin’s 4-1 win over The Park in the Killarney Plaza 15 Premier sees them level at the top of the table with Camp Juniors who still have one game to play. Callum Russell, Callum Moriarty and Adam Owens got the Killorglin goals. David Callaghan got the Park’s goal as they remain in third place with one game to play.
Important win for Athletic in 15’s Division 1:

Windmill United and Ballyheigue tied for third in 15 Division 2:
Goals from Windmill United’s Adam Hegarty and Eric McMahon 2 sees them level with Ballyheigue in third place in the Killarney Plaza 15’s Division 2. But Ballyheigue have one game left against Dingle Bay and a win will move them into second place on the final table.
Kerry trio feature in Irish u16’s games in Sweden:
There was a time when to have any player on an Irish underage team was a rarity. Those days are long gone and things reached another level this week.
Kerry had three players on the Irish u16 team –Leo Gaxha, Sean McGrath and Sean Kennedy – at the UEFA Development Tournament in Sweden.
All three featured in their opening 2-0 defeat hosts Sweden and again in the defeat to Austria with Sean Kennedy starting the game. Kennedy saved his best for the last game against Turkey. He came off the bench in a game that McGrath and Gaxha started in. Kennedy fired in the equaliser with 5 minutes to go and then hit another in the penalty shoot-out that Ireland won. It was a proud week for the League to see three players that came through its ranks lining out together in the Green of Ireland.

Kerry 1-1 Wexford
With Kerry and Wexford tied on the table this game was always going to be tight. And while the point was welcomed by both sides the fact that the Wexford keeper Aaron Phelan has recovered from the neck injury that held up the game is the most important thing.
Aaron went down after challenging for a ball from a Kerry free-kick and when he complained about his neck the physios did not want to move him. An ambulance was called and as it had to come from Dingle the keeper was on the ground for over one and a half hours – totally unacceptable.
Back to the game and the early stages were tight with Caolan O’Connell and Sean Kederski going the closest for Kerry.
From a Wexford point of view Dylan Casey went closest with his shot that was saved by Jack McGillicuddy. However the keeper had no change with the Wexford goal. Evan Connolly got the ball about 25 yards and cracked an unstoppable shot into the top corner. Liam Doyle should have made it 2-0 before the break but he shot over.
Kerry were much more aggressive in the second half with Kian Clancy and Maurice O’Connell going close early on. The home side continued to press with Alain Beaujoin and Kian Wright also threating the Wexford goal.
After the delay Kerry continued to press for a deserved equaliser which final came inside the last 5 minutes. A training ground corner routine paid dividends when Cian Brosnan’s low corner to the near post was flicked home by Ronan Teehan. A point was a fair result for both sides.
Kerry’s next game is away to Cork in Bishopstown this Saturday with a 2pm kick-off.
Kerry: Jack McGillicuddy, Zach Behan, Alain Beaujoin, Ryan Guerin, Caolan O’Connell, Kian Clancy, Sean Kederski, Cillian O’Shea, Maurice O’Connell, Kian Wright, Cian Brosnan, Ryan Teehan, Philip Evans, Sean Horan, Sean Dillane, Sean Ryan, Aaron O’Sullivan, Rob Vassiu.
Kerry 12’s Girls reach Gaynor final four:
21 Leagues at 4 venues went in search of the 4 available places for the Gaynor 12’s Last 4 which will take place in UL in June as part of the Festival of Women’s Football.
The MGL (Dublin) qualified from the AUL, Sligo/Leitrim from the Donegal hosted qualifier and Galway from the one in Newcastlewest.
At Celtic Park in Killarney Kerry defeated Wexford 2-1 (Leah McMahon and FIANA BRADLEY – apologies for leaving her name out in the first draft!), Waterford 1-0 (Emma O’Brien) and drew 0-0 with both Cork and South Tipperary. Kerry won the group with 8 points one ahead of Cork.
The Kerry squad is: Aoibhin Kelly, Eabha Lyne, Ellie May Nugent, Lucy O’Sullivan, Saoirse Kelly, Orla Barrett, Leah McMahon, Michaela O’Meara, Fiana Bradley, Laura Power, Trianna Murphy, Lily Nowak. Katie Clarke, Emma O’Brien, Katie Doe.
Park fails to raid the Orchard:
St Brendan’s Park great run in the Skeechers FAI 14’s National Cup came to an end when they went down 4-1 to Cherry Orchard in Dublin. It was a huge achievement for the team to get this far. The Dublin side capitalised on any little opening they were given and were 2-0 up at the break and 3-0 up 6 minutes into the second half. The Park battled to the end and tired a little with Cherry Orchard getting a 4th late on.
Regional’s Round Up:
The 2017-2018 National Cup season has come to an end for Kerry sides and it has been one of the most successful to date. 9 teams reached the Last 32 and 6 teams reached Regional Finals. Killorglin welcomed Caherdavin from Limerick to the Dragons Den. The sides could not be separated until the 10th minute of extra time when the away side got the vital goal. This was a great effort by Killorglin but they just came up short.
The Park had already won the 14’s Regional defeating Listowel Celtic 2-1. They won the 13’s last season and have now won back to back Regionals at 13’s defeating Killorglin away 2-0. Venis Jahiri put the Tralee side 1-0 up midway through the first half and then Noah Townend wrapped up the win late on.
Killarney Celtic 16’s ensured 3 Regional Cups out of 6 will spend the year in Kerry thanks to an extra time away win at Regional United in Limerick. Jack McCarthy put Celtic 1-0 up in the 39th minute but the home side equalised in the 40th minute.
There were no further scores until late in extra time. Dylan Callaghan’s run set up McCarthy and he cross was deflected to the net by the Regional defender. Celtic had to battle to the end but held out for the remaining 3 minutes to take the win.

Reports from a very busy week in Cup, Shield and League action:
Park Regional Champions again:
In the SFAI Skeechers 14’s Regional Final St Brendan’s won 2-1 away at Listowel Celtic. For this team it’s their second Regional win in a row as they were the 13’s winner last year.
Played in ideal conditions on a perfect pitch at Pat Kennedy Park it was expected before the game that there would be very little between these sides and so it proved.
But it was The Park that were on the front foot from early on and the Listowel Celtic defence and keeper had to stand strong on a number of occasions with Aisling Kelly doing a very good job on the Park danger man Messiah Chirwa.
However they were breached in the 20th minute when a very good Park move saw Cianan Cooney finish low to the net to put the Tralee side 1-0 up.
However Listowel Celtic did not drop their heads and upped the tempo. It did look like they would go in 1-0 at the break but in the 38th minute they drew level. After sustained pressure a Robert Stack corner was finished to the net by Aoife Horgan.
The second half continued with both sides playing great football thrilling the big crowd that were enjoying the game as much as the sunshine. Both sides had chances to win in and indeed both sides also hit the crossbar.
In the end it was the Park that won it with a very good goal from Cillian Murphy to continue what is turning into very impressive season who are still in the hunt for a number of other trophies. While Listowel Celtic will be disappointed they also have had a good year and their day will come.
Celtic girls on the double in the Cup:
Killarney Celtic girls enjoyed an impressive double win in the 12’s Girls Cup quarter finals.
12 Girls Cup quarter finals:
Killarney Celtic White are into the 12’s Cup semi-final and are on the hunt for a double as their 4-1 over Listowel Celtic also ensured they will end the season as 12 Girls Shield champions. Micheala O’Meara hit two goals on the night with Abbie Finnan and Naoishe Cantillion getting one each. But it was not all one way traffic as Aoibhin Kelly had to make a number of good saves to keep the Killarney side ahead. Listowel Celtic’s goal came from Ruth O’Connor.
Killarney Celtic Green are also into the Last 4 of the Cup as they also stay on course for a double as they have already won the Premier division. However they were made fight all the way by a very good Inter Kenmare Blue side. There was nothing between the sides in normal time but it was the Killarney girls that got the goals in extra time to take the win. They came from Elizabeth Coffey and a cracking long range effort by Leah McMahon to see them win 2-0.
Iveragh into 12’s Cup semi-final:
Iveragh United took the final place in the John Murphy 12’s Cup semi-final as they got past Tralee Dynamos 1-0 after extra time. The all-important goal came from David Kennedy with David Murphy making a number of very good saves to see his side home.
Iveragh United now join Killarney Athletic A, Castleisland and Killorglin A in the draw for the semi-finals.

Killarney Athletic A proved too strong for Killorglin B in the quarter final of the John Joe Naughton 13’s Cup quarter final. Noah Sexton and Mathew Moynihan both hit 2 each with Ryan Neeson, Oisin O’Sullivan and Alex Hennigan all hitting one each.
Killarney Celtic were very happy to come away from Christy Leahy Park with a win over The Park. The game finished 1-1 after extra time with Kelvin O’Sullivan getting the Celtic goal. Venis Jahiri replied for the Park. But after the spot kicks it was Celtic that progress on a 4-3 score-line.
Killorglin saw off Iveragh United in a tight game. A goal by Zak Fayen put the South Kerry side ahead at half time. But two second half goals from John Burke saw Killorglin progress who had keeper Darragh Crosby to thank after a number of vital saves. Listowel Celtic and Inter Kenmare will battle it out for the final place in the semi-finals.
3 of 4 semi-final places sorted in 14’s Cup:
The Park just got the better of Killorglin A in a 5 goal thriller in the Tom Hayes 14’s Cup quarter final. Messiah Chirwa, Cillian Murphy and Kieran O’Connor got the Park’s goal to start of what was a memorable week for them. Eoghan Hassett and Ryan Diggin replied for Killorglin.
Killarney Celtic A and Mastergeeha are also in the last four with the final place going to either Fenit or Ballyhar.

Healy Family 15 Shield
The Park were guaranteed to get one team into the next round as their B team met their C’s with the former going through 3-0. However the C;’s can be happy with their run as they are a much younger side.

Carlow /Kilkenny 15’s win in Callan:
Kerry made the long journey to Derdimus Park in Callan, next door to Buckley Park that many will know from the days of Kilkenny City.
It was the home side the opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Zach Bay Hammond got to the ball just before Kerry keeper Arron O’Sullivan. Kerry fought back and when close through Cillian O’Shea, Caolan O’Connell and Sean Kederski. However O’Sullivan had to be alert and made two very good save before half time.
Kerry again had more of the ball in the second half but were probably not aggressive enough and could not find that spark to unlock the well drilled home defence.
The visitors tired and conceded a second to Hammond in the 75th minute and a third when pushing forward in the last minute. Carlow/ Kilkenny ended the game with 10 men but at that stage the game was over. Kerry will welcome Wexford to Mouthawk Park on Saturday week.
