KERRY U20 ALL IRELAND SEMI FINAL
With the week starting on a high with Will Shine being named as the Munster U20 Player of the Championship, things took a turn for the worst in Pearse Stadium on Saturday. Sligo came out on top in this eagerly awaited All Ireland semi final but fair to say Kerry will have been disappointed by the hours event. To be fair to Will, he top scored for the Kingdom with four points but the overall effort never really got going. To give Sligo their due they are thriving recently at underage level and will be a formidable opponent for Kildare in the final.

JUVENILE BOYS UPDATE
The U11 Boys battled bravely against the elements and Laune Rangers on what was a miserable Thursday evening on the banks of the Laune. But the boys played very well and did themselves proud. They would have been boosted earlier in the week by a visit from 2014 All Ireland winning goalkeeper Brian Kelly who gave them a lovely pep talk about the friendships and spirit a club can create.
When Sean Daly constructed his team for the Killarney Legion GAA Golf Classic he certainly put all the right tools in the bag as teammates Dan Doona and Johnny Brosnan made sure the trio dovetailed to perfection to carry the spoils. Their 95 point haul on a mild day in the famed O Mahony Point course made them clear winners over the Ted Healy inspired team consisting of Kieran Cremin and David Marmian. They were chased home all the way by Con Healy, James McCarthy and the irrepressible Patie Sugrue, representing the Legion legends of Johnny Culloty and Pat Healy. Declan Kelly’s driver was in full working order as he creamed the longest drive down the 11th and in the process finished fourth alongside Adrian Brennan and Brian Hayles. Golfer supreme Seamie O Connor won nearest the pin with his excellent pitch to one of the world’s trickiest Par 3s , the 18th.
