INTERMEDIATE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINAL
Well the long wait is almost over. On Sunday August 28th we defeated Kilcummin in Direen at the quarter final stage and now some ten weeks later we face An Ghaeltacht in the last four. The fixture is set for Austin Stack Park this Sunday at 2pm and make no mistake about it the team will have to be at their best to get the better of the men from the West. Powered by Kerry seniors Brian O Beaglaoich and Eanna O Conchuir they came out of the “Group of Death” which featured Castleisland Desmonds, Glenbeigh/Glencar and Kilcummin. So they will be battle hardened. Ned English and his management have been busy preparing for the game with a series of challenge matches against good opposition and with the return of the East Kerry contingent all should be in good spirits. As always your support would be greatly appreciated.
JOANNE O RIORDAN
The Club is delighted that Joanne O Riordan has accepted an invitation to join our Executive Committee in the coming year 2023. Joanne has been an Honorary Life Member since 2015 and joins the committee in an advisory role.
A date has been set for our Annual General Meeting. Keep Friday November 25th free in your diary and all members will be notified of the agenda in due course.
UNDER 10 BOYS
Our under 10 boys took part in the prestigious Austin Stacks John Lynch under 10 Tournament. After playing some great football in very trying conditions in a group with Cork kingpins St Finbarrs ,Portlaoise and hosts Austin Stacks we finished second in the group . This qualified us for a group final against Na Gaeil. In the final the boys had to dig really deep as underfoot conditions and the weather deteriorated but they played some tremendous football to come out on top. This led to tremendous scenes of excitement for this great bunch of young lads. Huge thanks to the parents and coaches who helped out on the day and especially the players who showed true grit and determination to come out on top. A special word of thanks to our hosts Austin Stacks, Liam Lynch and his committee who put on a tremendous show attracting clubs from all over Ireland for a great football tournament.
Hard luck to our Minor Boys who were defeated by Firies in the East Kerry Championship Division 3 Final. The Farranfore outfit made the better start in Listry leading by 2-3 to 0-3 at half time. The lads battled hard in the second half but couldn’t make any inroads into the lead. Congratulations to Firies who won out eventually by 4-9 to 2-7.
We would appeal to all our members to be vigilant when in our Club grounds, especially with the evenings getting shorter. There has been some defacing of our club facilities and we are currently investigating the matter with the authorities thanks to the CCTV we have installed. If you see anyone who is not a member or around our ground engaging in non club activity please let us know. We are confident that we will be able to Identify the persons responsible for this latest act but its vital that this cannot go on any further in the future.
