Co League Rd 5 Div 1 A   

Austin Stacks 1-13       

Kilcummin 1-11


Played in Connolly Park last Sunday our lads matched Austin Stacks score for score up until the first water break when the score read 4 points a-piece. Noel Duggan pointing three frees while Gary O’Leary scored from play. A Stacks goal immediately after the break was a blow but our lads responded well and a John McCarthy point and Noel Duggan free left us trailing by a single point at half time 0-6 to 1-4.

Two points by Philip O’Leary and James Nagle saw us draw level after 10 minutes but Stacks tacked on three points in succession to open up a gap. Gary O’Leary and Noel Duggan replied to leave a single goal between us with 10 minutes left. However Stacks proved the stronger in those closing minutes and despite a Kevin Gorman goal they held on by two points. In the process they relegated us to Division 2 for next year.

Losing two games by a single point and today by just two shows how tight the games were. Well done to players and management and despite the disappointment we will regroup for the club championship to come.


Dara O’Callaghan: Congratulations to Dara O’Callaghan who captained the Kerry minor team on Friday last in the Munster semi-final against Cork. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of Dara, who was outstanding they lost out by a point. This was a great honour for a very committed athlete and great things lie ahead for Dara. A proud day also for his family in particular and the entire club.
