Killarney Celtic 14’s reach Regional Final
Killarney Celtic 14’s put their National Cup defeat behind them with a great away win over Shannon United in the Regional semi-final. They had to go all the way to sudden death penalties to qualify for the decider. Celtic will take on Kildimo United in the Regional Final with the Killarney side on the road.
Celtic went behind just before half time but Jack O’Sullivan scored to level matters and that how in stayed until the end.
In the penalty shoot-out Eoghan Crowley, Robbie Harnett, Cathal Kelly and Timothy Moynihan were all successful from the spot. Shay O’Meara then made a great save on the last Shannon penalty to send it into sudden death and Colin O’Callaghan showed nerves of steel to wrap up the win after the home side missed their kick.
No joy for Park in Regional semi-finals:
There was no joy for the Park in both the 13’s and 15’s SFAI Regional semi-finals. In a quirk of draw both sides were drawn against Aisling Annacotty from Limerick. The 15’s travelled on Friday night and while they were probably the better side in the end the only goal of the game went to the Limerick side from a long range free kick after 52 minutes.
Aisling Annacotty now await the winners of Galbally United and Killarney Celtic who meet this weekend.
The 13’s welcomed Aisling to Christy Leahy Park but it was the visitors that had the better of the first half to go 2-0 up. The Park did pull one back through Ciaran Kavanagh but they ran out of time to find an equaliser and force extra time.
The 13’s and 15’s are still in the National Cups. The 13’s will travel to Waterford to take on Southend United in the Last 16 while in their Last 16 clash the 15’s welcome Naas to Tralee.
Park close in on Killorglin in 13’s Premier
The Daly’s Supervalu 13 Premier game between The Park and Killarney Celtic was a vital one as both sides started out 6 points behind leaders Killorglin but with two games to play.
Emmanuel Manu put the Park ahead mid-way through the first half with a cracking finish. But just before the break Killarney Celtic were level from a Padraig O’Donoghue strike. Into the second half and it was the Park that scored twice with Manu completing his hat-trick. If the Park can beat Listowel Celtic in their final League game they will force a play-off with Killorglin for the 13 Premier title.

Castleisland still lead the way but have dropped their first points in 9 games after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Tralee Dynamos. It looked good for a 9th Castleisland win as they went 2-2 up thanks to goals from Finn Nolan and Evan Brennan. But credit to the Dynamos as they fought back to draw the game with their goals coming from Rory O’Halloran and Pierce Lowth.
Dingle Bay Rovers are in a battle for second place and they now have a 2 point gap over Inter Kenmare after a close call away at Camp Juniors. The West Kerry side led 2-0 with goals from Cian McGearrailt and Joe Linnane. Paudie Fitzgerald pulled one back for Camp.
