The Park put themselves right in contention in the 14’s Premier Division with a good win over Listowel Celtic.

Karl Mullins and Emaneull Abubaker both scored two with Andrew Philips, Kian Carmody and Luke Moynihan netting one each.
In Division 1 South Iveragh United win over Killarney Celtic B ensures they will finish in the runners up spot at worst. They are now 2 points behind leaders Killorglin but have a game more played. However the sides also have to meet each other so the title is not decided yet. In their win over Killarney Celtic James O’Sullivan got 2 and John Murphy 1.
Tralee Trophy World 16’s Div 1:
The 16’s Division 1 is not split with the top four sides and the bottom four sides meeting each other once more before the League title and the Shield (for the team with the most points outside the top 4) is decided. Castleimaine lead the way and continued their push toward the title with a 2-0 win over Ballyhar who drop to fourth. Ciaran Griffen and Jonathan O’Sullivan got the goals.

Ballyheigue lead the chase for the Shield and now have a 5 point game over Inter Kenmare but have played a game extra after drawing 2-2 with Listowel Celtic. Derek Griffen and Gene Moriarty Flynn are the names on the Listowel Celtic team sheet.
The sight of 6 under 11’s Girls teams enjoying their Blitz at Killarney Celtic was a joy to behold. Two teams from the hosts and from Listowel Celtic plus one each from Park and Killarney Athletic all enjoyed playing against each other in games where the scores didn’t matter.
Listowel Celtic continues to top the table and proved too strong for a gallant Kingdom Girls side who are improving every week. For Listowel Celtic Shannon Sheehy, Maggie Walsh, Leah Henry, Cianna Guiney and Aoife Henry all got their name onto the score sheet.
However it is very tight and they only have a point to spare over Killarney Celtic who won the mid week derby 3-0 thanks to Molly Kelly, Hannah O’Donoghue and Emma Dineen.
The two Celtic’s are a little ahead of the other sides in this Division with Listowel having a three point gap over their Killarney counterparts. Killarney Celtic won at Inter Kenmare thanks to goals from Melissa Buckley, Mairead O’Donoghue, Jennifer Murphy and 2 from Aisling Coffey.
For Listowel Celtic Rebecca Horgan was unstoppable netting 5 which were added to goals from Megan Feally, Aoife Shine, Abbey McMahon and Charlotte O’Neill as they got the better of the Camp / PARK Combination.
