Tom Hayes 14’s Shield:

It was the clash of the two Celtic’s as Killarney Celtic took on their unbeaten North Kerry counterparts Listowel Celtic. Listowel Celtic C had already picked up the League title, going through their campaign unbeaten. Killarney Celtic C came into this Shield final in good form, having beaten Inter Kenmare in the semi-finals.

And it was Killarney Celtic C who got off to the perfect start and were 3-0 up thanks to goals from Alan Dineen, Ruairi Darcy and Jack McCarthy. Listowel Celtic C pulled a goal back through Mikey Nolan before the break to leave it 3-1 at the half.

When Paudi Looney extended Killarney Celtic’s lead with a sublime chip over the Listowel keeper there was always only to be one winner. However Listowel Celtic C never gave up and they got their second through Ted Moloney. They did go close to getting a 3rd but it was Killarney Celtic C that wrapped up the scoring with Cian O’Leary volleying home from outside the box.

Killarney Celtic’s Cian Dineen was presented with the Man of the Match Award.

Inter come from behind for extra time win:

15’s Shield Final:

When Shane Jordan put the Park 1-0 up after 15 minutes, during a period of dominance by the Tralee side things didn’t look good for Inter Kenmare. Jordan then hit the post in a crucial let off for Inter but they also began to create chances and David Obi in the Park goal had to make some good sides to keep his side ahead. However he could do nothing to prevent Ben Crowley equalising mid -way through the half.

The Park went ahead again in the second half when Aaron Ward scored with a spectacular volley following a corner. But Inter levelled matters again with arguably an even better goal when Dylan O’Connor cracked home a 35 yards effort to send the game into extra time.

And it was Inter Kenmare who proved to be the strongest and fittest in extra time and they went ahead for the first time, early in the first period of extra time. David O’Connor was the goal scorer and Inter Kenmare wrapped it up when Daniel Casey scored after a corner to see them take the Shield.

St Brendan’s Park do 15’s Double:

Having already been crowned the 15’s Premier champions St Brendan’s Park were hot favourites coming in to the 15’s Cup final. However Camp Juniors are a club that continues to improve and having never reached a Cup final in their history the put that right this season by reaching two deciders.

And they did not just turn up at Killarney Athletics pitch in Woodlawn to make up the numbers and indeed went in front early on from Davidas.

But The Park upped their game and two goals from Gearoid Fitzgerald and one from Michael Slattery put the Tralee boys 3-1 ahead at the break.

Camp Juniors tried hard to get back into the game but it was The Park that got the next goal with Michael Slattery getting his second and JR Tshikato scoring on the break the 15’s Cup was heading to the trophy cabinet in Christy Leahy Park.

The Kerry u12 Girls played their first competitive games in a tournament in Kilmallock on Saturday. This was their first full game with offside and they were obviously nervous in their first game going down to Tipperary.

However they were quickly into their stride and in their second game they defeated Limerick Desmond 6-2. Jade Harkin got 4 with Ciara Butler and Katie Keane also scoring.

In their 3rd and final game the young Kerry girls put in a great performance when winning 5-2 over Limerick County. Jade Harkin rounded out a great day getting a hat trick. Katie Keane and Elena O’Doherty were the other Kerry goal-getters.
