Senior County Championship Round 3

St Kierans 0-21 Kilcummin 1-13

Having the greater possession and been very competitive in the first half, we totally lost our way in the third quarter conceding 11pts without reply. Indeed, we retired on level terms 0-8 each at the break after an entertaining first 30 minutes in which no team were ever more than two points ahead. Noel Duggan accounted for four of those points while Shane McSweeney (twice), Gary O’Leary and Sean O’Leary also rowed in with scores.

After 15 mins of the second half Kevin McCarthy was introduced for his first game in six months and the improvement was very evident after that. Firstly, he found Enda O Sullivan with a long pass and Enda found the bottom corner of the net. There was a much livelier approach from our lads after that as Sean O Leary and Noel Duggan twice converted. Although we never looked like reeling in St Kierans Kevin McCarthy’s two late points put a better complexion on the scoreboard and sent supporters home somewhat happier.

Kilcummin’s next game is a relegation game against Rathmore on Saturday October 26th at a time and venue yet to be decided. 

Team: Brendan Kealy; Sean O’Leary (0-2), Donal Maher, Oscar O’Connor; James Nagle, Kevin McSweeney, Damien O’Leary; Kevin Gorman, Kieran Murphy; Shane McSweeney (0-2), Gary O’Leary (0-1), Matt Keane, Enda O’Sullivan (1-0), Noel Duggan (0-6, 6f), Paul O’Shea, Subs Used: Jamie O’Donoghue, Kevin McCarthy (0-2) Sean Moynihan, Mikey O’Shea, Philip Casey, William Maher.

Congratulations to our Senior Ladies who won the County League Division 3 Final in Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday last.

The death took place recently in Canada of Joe Sheehan who played senior football with Kilcummin from 1960 to 1966. He played in the O’Donoghue Cup final in 1966 and shortly afterwards emigrated to Canada. The GAA club offers its sympathies to the Sheehan family. May he rest in peace.

U16 East Kerry Championship Div 2 Final Report

U16 East Kerry Championship Div 2 Final

Kilcummin 0-20 Fossa 3-10

FARRANFORE was the venue for the East Kerry Championship Division 2 final on Sunday morning and Kilcummin emerged deserved winners after a massive battle with neighbours Fossa.

Playing with the light breeze Kilcummin got off to a fine start and two early frees from centre-forward Cian Foley were followed by a brace from play by the same player as Jack McClain and Colm Kelliher were dominating in midfield. Corner-forwards Evan O’Sullivan and Micheal Sweeney were working hard in showing for the ball up front with Mark O’Shea moving to good effect at full-forward.

However, Fossa turned the game on its head with swift counter-attacking play and two quick goals – the first a penalty – and two points saw the opposition lead 2-2 to 0-5 after a further free from Cian Foley. Kilcummin continued to work hard and with Dara O’Callaghan now influential in midfield and Cian Murphy and Andrew Lowin excelling in the full-back line, further scores followed from Cian Foley and Jack McClain.

The pace of the game was impressive with wing-backs Dara O’Shea and Turlough O’Connor raiding down the wings and involved in creating chances for the forwards. Wing-forward Oisín O’Leary was also prominent at this stage, working hard, tackling well and strong in possession.

Goalkeeping

However, we were grateful to excellent goalkeeper Jaden Tynan for a superb point-blank save as despite conceding two points, further scores from the very lively Adam O’Sullivan–back after injury, Dara O’Callaghan from distance and Mark O’Shea saw the teams level at the break on a 0-10 to 2-4 score-line.

Opportunities to score were hard to come by early in the second-half but with Jack McClain and Dara O’Callaghan getting a foothold in midfield. Kilcummin slowly picked off points against a crowded defence with scores from Cian Foley (free), two great strikes from Mark O’Shea and another from Dara O’Callaghan to open a small gap.

Again, Fossa came back to reduce the margin but with Colin O’Leary showing well and using his pace to good effect he slotted over from close range. Points from Cian Foley, Jack McClain and impressive sub Padraic Moynihan saw Kilcummin go four points clear with less than 10 minutes remaining. Superb defending from Andrew Lowin and a great block-down from Dara O’Callaghan kept the opposition at bay, albeit temporarily.

Fossa were not done yet though and Kilcummin were grateful to Killian O’Brien and Cian Murphy for some stout defence. However, another goal and point for the opposition saw the sides level with time running out and momentum against us. To the team’s credit though Kilcummin remained composed and great team-play saw the ball worked to ice-cool sub Jack Fogarty who split the uprights with a fine point which ultimately proved decisive.

Possession

Despite some added time Kilcummin retained possession well before excellent Firies referee James O’Sullivan brought a cracking contest to a conclusion. Team captain Cian Foley was presented with the cup by East Kerry Board official Christy O’Leary.

This win ends a superb year for Kilcummin U16’s with Cups collected for County League Division 2 and now EK Championship Division 2 while nine of our players also added County Championship U16 medals to their collection with Eoghan Ruadh.

Well done to the entire panel – Gearoid Mulvihill, Kirill Healy, Oran Dwyer (injured), Daniel Horgan and Robbie Moynihan – all of whom played a part in our vital win over Firies – this win was just reward for the outstanding commitment to training right throughout the year.

Team: Jaden Tynan; Andrew Lowin, Cian Murphy, Killian O’Brien; Dara O’Shea, Dara O’Callaghan (0-2), Turlough O’Connor; Jack McClain (0-2) & Colm Kelliher; Colin O’Leary (0-1), Cian Foley (0-9, 4f), Oisin O’Leary; Evan O’Sullivan, Mark O Shea (0-3), Micheal Sweeney.

Subs: Adam O’Sullivan (0-1), Gearoid Mulvihill, Kirill Healy, Oran Dwyer, Daniel Horgan, Robbie Moynihan, Jack Fogarty (0-1), Padraic Moynihan (0-1).

Management: James Foley, Diarmuid O’Callaghan, Dave Kearney, Kevin O’Riordan, Michael O’Callaghan.

Senior County Championship:

Kilcummin 2-12 Mid Kerry 0-13

Well done to our senior players and management who recorded a marvellous victory over Mid Kerry on Sunday. Despite being under considerable pressure early on gradually established a foothold in the game and courtesy of two goals from Kieran Murphy and Noel Duggan we lead by six points at half time 2-7 to 0-7.

Mid Kerry cut the deficit two a single point in the third-quarter but our players really showed their character in those final 15 minutes to regain control and run out winners by five points. This was one of the best wins by this team in recent years and it was without doubt a team effort. However, Paul O’Shea, Kieran Murphy, Oscar O’Connor, Shane McSweeney, Enda O’Sullivan and Noel Duggan deserve special mention on this occasion.

We now progress to Round Three where we will play St Kierans on Sunday October 13th in Fitzgerald Stadium.

Team and Scorers: Brendan Kealy (0-2, 2f); Sean O’Leary (0-1), Donal Maher, Oscar O’Connor; Kevin McSweeney, Damien O’Leary, Jamie O’Donoghue; Kevin Gorman, Kieran Murphy,(1-1); Matt Keane (0-2), Gary O Leary, Shane McSweeney; Enda O Sullivan, Noel Duggan (1-5 4f), Paul O Shea (0-1) Subs Used: Paul O’Riordan, Sean Moynihan and William Maher.

U-16 County League Division 2 Final

Kilcummin 1-11 Ardfert 3-4

A blustery Austin Stack Park was the venue for the County League Finals on Wednesday night August 14th last and Kilcummin emerged deserved winners in Division Two after a massive battle with Ardfert.

Playing with the strong wind, Kilcummin got off to a disastrous start as the opposition rattled off 1-1 in the opening minutes and they were grateful to full-back Cian Murphy for a superb block down and to goalkeeper Jaden Tynan for a great save to prevent further damage.

However, with good team play, excellent points from wing-forwards Colin O’Leary and Adam O’Sullivan got Kilcummin off the mark and despite several wides 3 points in-a-row from centre-forward Cian Foley had the teams on level terms. With Oran Dwyer winning good ball in defence, Colm Kelliher impacting the game in midfield and corner forwards Micheal Sweeney and Oisin O’Leary working hard for possession and tackling deep, another good point from the flying Colin O’Leary had Kilcummin 0-6 to 1-2 up at the break.

With Andrew Lowin and Turlough O’Connor driving on from defence, Kilcummin stretched further ahead on the resumption with fine points from substitute Jack Fogarty and corner-back Killian O’Brien. However, Ardfert struck the net again to lead 2-3 to 0-8 with a Cian Foley free soon after levelling matters again. Ardfert pressed for home and a point, followed by a deflected goal, saw them lead 3-4 to 0-9 with the wind at their backs and less than 10 minutes remaining.

It was now that Kilcummin showed true heart. With Cian Murphy and Dara O’Callaghan defending stoutly, Jack McClain fielding strongly in midfield and Cian Foley leading the attack with purpose, they took over from here to the end of the four minutes of additional injury time. Evan O’ Sullivan, Brandon Griffin and Padraic Moynihan all made a big impact off the bench with the latter kicking a great score coming in off the right wing.

When Mark O’ Shea finished superbly to the top of the net after great teamwork the teams were level at 3-4 to 1-10 with time almost up. Cian Foley kicked over from a free with the last score and Kilcummin retained possession excellently in injury time to emerge victorious after a mighty battle.

Well done to the entire panel, this win was just reward for all the outstanding commitment to training right through the spring and summer.

Team: Jaden Tynan; Andrew Lowin, Cian Murphy (c), Killian O’ Brien (0-1); Oran Dwyer, Dara O’Callaghan , Turlough O’Connor; Jack McClain, Colm Kelliher; Colin O’Leary (0-2), Cian Foley (0-5, 0-2f), Adam O’ Sullivan (0-1); Oisin O’Leary, Mark O Shea (1-0), Micheal Sweeney.

Subs: Evan O’Sullivan, Brandon Griffin, Dara O’Shea, Cathal Brosnan, Gearoid Mulvihill, Kirill Healy, Daniel Horgan, Robbie Moynihan, Jack Fogarty (0-1), Padraic Moynihan (0-1), James Williams.

Co League Rd 3 Ghaeltacht 2-20 Kilcummin 2-12 

Goals from Sean O’Leary (First Half) and Shane McSweeney (Second Half) added to some fine points from Paul O’Shea and Matt Keane were the highlights of this game from our perspective. An Ghaeltacht coped with the windy conditions much better and showed much greater ability to kick their scores when needed. Next game is on 26th May at home to Legion.

Credit Union County Senior Football League Round 2 

Kilcummin 0-15 Templenoe 3-4

Our senior team picked up their second brace of points on Sunday after a hard-earned victory against Templenoe. Trailing by nine points after 15 minutes things looked gloomy! However, the lads dug in and wrestled back control from the excellent visitors, kicking six points to haul the deficit back to three at half-time. Playing against the wind in the second-half they forged ahead but needed several excellent saves from Brendan Kealy to keep Templenoe out.

Kevin Gorman, Matt Keane and Gary O’Leary were outstanding while Donal Maher, Philip Casey and John McCarthy will be very happy with their contributions. On the down side Kieran Murphy and Shane McSweeney picked up injuries to add to the bad news that Kevin McCarthy picked up a significant injury playing with Kerry.

We wish them and our other injured players a quick recovery as we now face into the Senior Club championship in two weeks’ time.

Team: Brendan Kealy, Sean Brosnan, Donal Maher, Philip Casey, James Nagle, Sean O’Leary, William Maher, Kieran Murphy, Kevin Gorman, Shane McSweeney, Gary O’Leary, Matt Keane, Mikey O’Shea, Noel Duggan, Oscar O’Connor. Subs used Damien O’Leary, John McCarthy and Enda O’Sullivan
