JK Sports 12 Division 1:
The big game in this Division was the League decider between the two unbeaten sides with Inter Kenmare who were on 22 points at home Killarney Celtic who were top of the table on 24 points. This game was played before a big crowd and after equal early exchanges it was the home side’s strength all over the pitch that saw them get the upper hand. Dylan O’Connor opened the scoring in the first half thanks to an unstoppable free kick.
The second goal was also going to be vital and again after a great through ball by the very tricky Ben Murnane O’Connor put the home side two up. Killarney Celtic never gave up and pushed forward but we caught on the break when Murnane got his deserved goal to wrap up the title and Aidan Cooney put the icing on the cake with the fourth. This game was a great advert for the game and both clubs futures are in safe hands with the level of skills displayed by both sets of players.
Elsewhere in the Division The Park consolidated their fourth place finish with a win over neighbours Kingdom Boys B. Robin McCarthy top scored with a hat trick, Dean Scanlon hit 2 and Adam Ward and David Couchman one each.
Despite losing to Killarney Celtic C Camp ended their campaign in fifth place. It was good finish to the season by the boys from Celtic Park whose goals came from Niall McGillicuddy, Dara Fleming and Robert Osbourne. For Camp Cillian Foley got one and Jack Farrell two goals.
Daly’s Supervalu 13’s Division 1:
A hat trick from Jimmy O’Grady ensured that Camp will finish third in the Daly’s Supervalu 13’s Division. His three goals saw them defeat Camp 3-1. Cian Flynn was on the mark for Castlemaine.
O’Callaghan’s Coaches 14’s Premier:

Second met fourth when Listowel welcomed their Killarney namesakes in a game that both sides really needed to win. However at the finish both Celtic’s had to settle for a point a piece after a 2-2 draw. Darragh Sheehy got both goals for Listowel Celtic to put then 2-0 up but Cathal O’Shea pulled one back and Lee O’Donoghue equalised for Killarney Celtic.
