Club Notes 25th June 2023

Monday 25th June


A sub par showing by an understrength team allied to a committed and hungry Spa performance saw our unbeaten record in Division 1 of the County league dissipate on a damp and muggy Saturday evening in Direen. A two point return in the first half after playing with the aid of a stiff breeze wasn’t sufficient and although the performance levels improved in the second half, Spa had enough in the tank to run out 1-10 to 0-9 winners. We now have to gain maximum points in our final two games in Dingle, this Friday June 30th at 7.30pm, and Strand Road, on the weekend of July 8th/9th, to have a say in the destination of the league honours.
Team..Brian Kelly(0-1), Kieran O Donoghue, Danny Sheahan, Rob Leen, Jonathan Lyne, Darragh O Doherty, Darragh Fleming, Padraig Lucey, Jamie Alade, Eoghan O Sullivan (0-1), Peter McCarthy(0-1), Billy McGuire, Podge O’Connor(0-2), Luke O Donoghue, Ryan O Grady(0-4).
Subs Sam Benson,  Shaun Keane, Cathal Sheahan.
The Senior B team made the trip down South on Friday night to face St Michael Foilmore. They came away with a 2-9 to 1-12 draw. They host Dr Crokes C in the next round in Direen on the weekend of July 8th/9th.


The Ladies County League kicked off last Monday night with the visit of Ballymac to Direen. Having met already in a tight game in the Donal Curtin Cup this was another ding dong battle. Aided by a slight breeze Ballymac led by three points at half time, thanks mainly to a penalty save by their custodian. A strong second half showing by the Legion girls reeled them in as the game entered the final stages but Ballymac regrouped to eventually squeeze out a 0-11 to 0-10 win.


The U11 Boys headed to Keel for the final round of Go Games on Thursday evening. We had two teams in action and all twenty four boys saw plenty of game time.
Our U15 Boys were in East Kerry League action during the week and if these games are anything to go by, we are in for an exciting month. The White team entertained Rathmore on Wednesday evening and trailed for the vast majority of the game. But crucially they did get their noses in front just at the right time.  Two quick fire goals in the dying embers of the game sealed the points on a 4-14 to 4-12 scoreline. The Green team were in Listry on Friday and they too played their part in a free flowing encounter. Unfortunately they didn’t come out on the right side of the result despite a late rally. Final score Killarney Legion 3-8 Keel / Listry 5-8.
