O’Sullivan Cup (East Kerry Junior Championship) Kilcummin 1-14 Dr Crokes 1-13
Kilcummin captured the O Sullivan Cup on Tuesday last in Spa after an epic and entertaining encounter with Dr Crokes. This game was always in the balance to the final whistle but Kilcummin’s hunger saw them victorious after a famine of twenty-five years. Shane McSweeney was a well-deserved Man-of-the-Match but there was a broad smile on the faces of fans and players alike when Ger Sheehan held aloft this coveted trophy. Well done to players and management alike and for a more comprehensive report visit Kilcummin’s GAA website.
All Ireland Champions Kerry Minors Homecoming. Hosted in Kilcummin GAA grounds solely for the first time ever a massive crowd turned out to make this a marvellous occasion for all. The welcome afforded to Paul O’Shea (Capt), Keith O’Leary and their fellow players will live long in the memory of these young men. With James Foley part of the management team it is fair to say that this was indeed a glorious night for the host club. A tremendous amount of work went in to the logistics of running this event so a word of thanks to stewards, Ladies Committee, Rural Development workers, DJ Gav, general members and the public for co-operation and involvement. A word of thanks also to local clubs who offered assistance on the night.
