Our U15 second team Boys were most unlucky to come out the wrong side of a fantastic battle with Fossa in the East Kerry final, played at a lush Fitzgerald Stadium Friday evening. After a slow start they thundered into the game in the second quarter leading 3-7 to 1-6 at half time. All was going to script in the second half until Fossa staged a late comeback clinching the win with a late goal. A disappointing finish but no doubt one they will learn from in the future. Final score Killarney Legion 4-9 Fossa 3-15.
A huge well done to the Kerry Ladies ,who by virtue of a superb win over Mayo, qualified for a second successive All Ireland Final. Keri Ann Hanrahan picked up a hand injury some time back, joined on the sidelines by the unfortunate Siofra O Shea, but both players remain part of the set up in what is a strong and unified group. The final will be a carbon copy of the Mens decider, a joust with the Metropolitans. Throw in is 4pm on Sunday 13th August in Croke Park.
KERRY VS DUBLIN
The Club extends its sympathies to the family of our neighbour in Direen ,Jackie Fleming, who passed away during the week. Also to the family of the late Tony Lawlor. Tony was a familiar face in the place of employment for many years, the Dromhall Hotel, but also was a staunch and fervent supporter of the Club, rarely missing a game. May both Jackie and Tony Rest in Peace.
