MUNSTER U20 FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
A Man of the Match performance from William Shine was the cornerstone on which Kerry’s latest Munster title win was built. Hitting six points he tormented the Rebels defence in a manner similar to that of his clubmate James O Donoghue in Pairc Ui Chaoimh in 2014. Sligo now lie in wait in the All Ireland semi final to be played in Pearse Stadium next Saturday, May 6th with a 4.45 throw in. Brian Kelly is of course the teams goalkeeping coach while one hopes Darragh Fleming has recovered sufficiently from injury to play some part in the All Ireland campaign. Former Senior team trainer Pat Flanagan will be looking to have the team primed for action.
LADIES FOOTBALL UPDATE
DONAL CURTIN LADIES CUP
Castleisland Desmonds were the visitors to Direen for Round three of the Donal Curtin Curtin Cup. Performing like a team who had spent a period of time at senior level, they were recently relegated, they possessed a clinical edge our Ladies did their best to combat but ultimately failed. A resilient first half show against a strong wind saw the visitors go in with a 1-5 to 0-2 advantage. The Legion Ladies battled hard in the second half, hitting the woodwork on three occasions with Ellen Coffey eventually finding the onion sack. Desmonds however cashed in themselves for two goals and when the final whistle blew it was the North Kerry side who emerged victorious on a 3-10 to 1-4 scoreline. Next up is an away date with Cloumacon.
