Our Minor boys hosted Austin Stacks in Round 2 of Division 1 of the County League in Direen last Saturday. Playing very well in the first half, they led at the interval by a scoreline of 2-4 to 0-6. Stacks came out of the blocks early in the second period with some good scores to close the deficit and benefited from a rebound off the post which led to a crucial goal for them. The lads rallied  in the last quarter and traded scores with Stacks but their powerful third quarter saw Stacks take the points on the day.Final Score Killarney Legion 2-6 Austin Stacks 1-13 . The game was refereed by Mike Morrissey.

With the season kick off not too far away the Senior ladies have confirmed their management team. John McCarthy, Ted Healy and Orla Culloty will pace the sidelines for the team,  with competitive fixtures pencilled in for late March.
