What a wonderful occasion as Kerry captured their 38th All Ireland title with a 0-20 to 0-16 win over Galway in Croke Park. David Clifford gave a performance for the ages, mirrored by Galways Shane Walsh as Jack O Connors men finished the stronger. Cian Gammell will no doubt have gained valuable experience being part of the panel and hopefully will be able to push on next year and challenge for a place in the team. Congratulations to Cian and with youth on his side the future is bright.
The scoreline in the end was harsh on a gallant Legion team but there would be little disputing the fact that Kenmare were the better team overall in this East Kerry U15 Division 1 League Final played in FItzgerald Stadium. But with ten points left on the clock, and the scoreboard reading 2-12 to 1-9 in Kenmare favours there was still a whiff of a chance. But three rapid fire goals put more of a gloss to it, but it shouldnt detract from what was a game and competitive Legion side.
SENIOR MENS UPDATE
John Mitchels Sports Complex was the venue on Thursday last for our U16 team where they faced Firies in the County League Division 3 Final. The Farranfore side made the brighter start but gradually as the half wore on our girls got into their rhythm and only trailed by three points at the break. Again Firies made a better start to the second half and built up a lead that couldn’t be surmounted and eventually ran out 7-10 to 4-9 winners. The ladies played with great commitment and when they look back at the overall campaign it will be with a sense of satisfaction overall.
Our brand new scoreboard is now up and running in the Club grounds thanks to the work of our Field and Facilities committee. Digitally operated and easy to use it will be a welcome addition when hosting games. Special thanks to Donal Dodo Hegarty and the various craftsmen whose diligence made the project happen.
The Club would like to wish Mark Moriarty all the very best on his ordination as a Deacon. Mark, whose father Brian served the club in many officerships and roles, is having his big day on Sunday August 7th at 3pm in St Mary’s Cathedral with light refreshments afterwards.
