Our lads finished off their year on a slightly disappointing note when they visited Kenmare for the East Kerry Division 1 semi final. The first half was an even enough affair with the hosts ahead by two points, 2-8 to 3-3. Unfortunately the second half didn’t go to plan as Kenmare grew stronger to qualify for the final where they will meet Dr Crokes. The lads competed in Division 1 in both County and District and will no doubt have learned a lot from the experience. The Club will strive to help them develop further as they progress through the ranks. Big thanks to the management team of Donal Culloty, John Keane, Nigel Shevlin and Donal Hegarty for their years work. Full time Score Killarney Legion 3-3 Kenmare 4-10.
U13 GIRLS DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP
Congratulations to Kate Fleming, Sophie Duke and Ali Bowler who were all part of the East Kerry U13 side that captured the County District Championship title last Sunday, aptly in Direen. They defeated Mid Kerry on a 6-12 to 4-8 scoreline and included in the management team was Fergal Moynihan. Well done all!!
