A late Conor Keane goal proved to be the difference in this highly entertaining East Kerry Superleague Final played in idyllic conditions on the lush carpet of Fitzgerald Stadium. With Crokes hanging onto a slender one point lead and playing keep ball inside their own 45 , the pressure applied by a hounding Legion attack forced a turnover and the ball fell to Keane who hit an unstoppable shot to the Crokes net.

There was still time for another Crokes point but when referee Padraig O Sullivan blew his whistle for the final time the scoreline read in Legions favour 3-10 to 2-12.
The first half was a story of two quarters, the first owned by Crokes as points by Daithi Casey(2), Billy Courtney(2), Mikey Casey and Brian Looney saw them ahead 0-6 to 0-4. Jamie O Sullivan was prominent in the first half hitting four points but the pivotal score of the half was the result of some nice link up play by Thomas Moriarty and Ryan O’Grady with the former slotting home nicely into the corner. Although cancelled out almost immediately by a Daithi Casey strike, points by Conor Keane and Ryan O’Grady saw the teams retire to the dressing room with Legion ahead 1-8 to 1-7.
Thomas Moriarty picked off the opening score of the second period but when David Shaw intercepted a crossfield ball to race clear and slot home a fine goal Crokes suddenly found themselves in the driving seat again. Mikey Casey nudged them three clear but then Legion pounced for another goal. Peter O Sullivan set off on a mazy run and the ball found the careering Padriag Lucey in the D and he proceeded to hit a piledriver past Crokes netminder Brendan Falvey. Scores were at a premium in the next ten minutes as Jamie O Sullivan and Shaw traded points before Daithi Casey’s late run looked to have settled it. A feature of the last ten minutes was some loose play by both sides with some poor shooting but that shouldnt detract from what was a fine spectacle overall.
 Just when it looked like the Crokes would hang on for the win, that late Legion turnover saw Keane pounce for the late goal which ultimately decided a fine contest. While the attack would be instrumental in the win scoring at vital stages it was also a very sound defensive display with cornerback Cathal Sheahan the pick of the sextet.

The Senior B team made it a successful weekend for the adult teams when they beat Castleisland Desmonds to capture the Division 6 Shield competition. Playing at a scorching but blustery Currow they played against the breeze in the first half and would have been very content to be just two down at half time with Luke O’Donoghue grabbing the first half goal. A determined start to the second half saw the teams level but Desmonds pulled six clear again with two quick fire goals. With the referee sensibly allowing water breaks a response was needed at the three quarters stage and so it happened as a flurry of points and a Finbarr Murphy goal saw us run out 3-12 to 4-7 winners. Well done to team management Donal O Donoghue, Michael B O’Donoghue, Conor McNiece, Mark O Leary and Mike Piggott who have been particularly busy these last few weeks with Junior competitions in full swing.

Our U14 and U16 Ladies teams have both qualified for their respective County League finals. The 14s travelled to Finuge and came away with a hard earned win over the home team, Finuge/ St Senans , on a scoreline of 2-10 to 2-03. Opposition, time, date and venue all to be confirmed. The U16s travelled to Gallerus for the second time in the competition , this time for the semi final. Having drawn their previous encounter another tight battle was envisaged and so it ensued. A real ding dong affair saw us ahead at the full time whistle by 3-16 to 4-8 . Well done to both teams and best of luck in the finals.


A good week for our U15 White team who have qualified for the Division 5 East Kerry Final. They were in Listry on Wednesday evening and battled back from nine points down to earn a draw. That draw qualified them for the semi final where they faced Kenmare/Kilgarvan in Kenmare on Saturday. Another titanic battle and we came out on the right side of the result, a one point win , 3-8 to 2-10.

The old adage “Goals win games” could definitely apply to our U17 Boys who captured the East Kerry Division 3 against Gneeveguilla in Barradubh Community Field last week. Two first half goals, including a rocket from Tom Benson saw the lads hold a 2-4 to 0-6 half time lead. Gneeveguilla kicked some nice points to keep the scoreboard ticking over but early second half goals from Josh Bowler, Darragh Murphy and Liam Cronin saw us establish superiority. Oisin Fleming added another goal that looked to put a tin hat on it but credit to Gneeveguilla, they got two of their own but it wasn’t enough to deny Legion captain Alex O Callaghan lift the cup. Final Score Killarney Legion 7-6 Gneeveguilla 2-14.


A unique year in every way with both Kerry teams, Mens and Ladies , qualifying for the All Ireland finals. It’s the first time since 1986 this feat has happened and a result of those results, a Kerry double, would certainly be welcomed. Cian Gammell is a member of the extended Mens panel while Elizabeth Mohan and Keri Ann Hanrahan(extended panel) are very much looking forward to the showpiece occasion on July 31st. We wish both Kerry teams the very best of luck on the next two Sundays.
