A tough day in the office for our Senior Men we were defeated by Kilcummin in Round 2 of the East Kerry Superleague. Short of a number of regulars due to a variety of circumstances, the game did afford the opportunity for a number of younger players to take part. Callum O Donoghue, Callum O Grady, Eoghan Crowley and Brian O'Sullivan were all introduced to the fray. Final score Killarney Legion 0-6 Kilcummin 0-15.
Team..Brian Kelly, Darragh O Doherty, Danny Sheahan, Kieran. O Donoghue, Peter O'Sullivan, Rob Leen, Stephen Flattery, Shaun Keane, Darragh Lyne, Cian Gammell(0-1), Jonathan Lyne(0-2), Luke O'Donoghue, Peter McCarthy, Finbarr Murphy(0-3), Thomas Moriarty.
Subs used.. Alan Moriarty, Billy McGuire, Callum O'Donoghue, Callum O'Grady, Brian O'Sullivan , Eoghan Crowley.
The next round is on this Sunday February 26th in Fr Breen Park where we will face Kenmare.

The draw was made for the Intermediate Club Championship in Austin Stack Park last weekend. We will be facing our neighbours Kilcummin, their neighbours Currow and Laune Rangers. This competition will commence one week after Kerry have completed their All Ireland football championship campaign. In a change from last years format , if Kerry reach the All Ireland final the club championships will be played upto and including the semi final stage and then the Kerry Senior County Championship will commence. If Kerry fail to reach the last two, the format will be as per 2022 .i.e. played upto and including quarter final stage, then the County Championship commences.

Eoghan O Sullivan is the latest Legionnaire to attain the prestigious Sigerson Cup medal when he was a member of the UCC panel that defeated UL in the showpiece final last Wednesday in Waterford. Jackie Lyne was a member of the 1943 UCC team while in 1988 John Keane captained them to Sigerson glory. More recently Brian Kelly and Shaun Keane were members of the 2014 victors while Padraig Lucey was a mainstay in the 2019 UCC team. John Trant and Donie Murphy , while attending the University College of Galway , won it in 1948, a feat repeated by John( of Sewells Pharmacy) in 1950. Tralee RTC won three in a row in the late 1990s , and in 1999 Sean Hegarty and Alan O Neill were members of the squad.
DCU won the All Ireland Freshers final last Thursday, with William Shine and Sam Benson in their ranks.

A mixed weekend on the playing fields for the various Kerry teams. The Kerry Senior Ladies sit proudly on top of the Lidl Ladies National League following Saturdays win over Dublin. Keri Ann Hanrahan was a member of the match day squad, who now welcome All Ireland champions Meath to Brosna next Saturday at 2pm. Andrea Murphy was a member of the Kerry minor panel who were defeated by Clare in Inagh. The Kerry U20 squad with Darragh Fleming at corner back, and Will on the bench, lost out to Dublin in Parnell Park while the Kerry Senior Men will be desperate for a win when they face Armagh in Austin Stack Park this Saturday. Cian Gammell continues to be a members of their training panel.

The Club extends its sympathies to the family of Tom Cronin, High Street who ran the family butcher shop for many years. He had built it into an institution in the town and Toms grandson, Tom, and granddaughter, Molly, are both active and popular members of our club. May Tom Rest in Peace.
