12’s National Cup:
The remaining sides in the National Cup now know what they need to do to reach their first goal – a place in the Last 32 Open Draw.
However one side who has already reached this stage is Listowel Celtic. They defeated Cappamore in Waterford 5-0 to become the first Kerry team into this year’s open draw hat. Sean McGrath continued to add to his growing reputation with 4 goals with Tadgh O’Carroll adding the 5th.
Kerry are guaranteed another side in the draw as Killarney Celtic set up a Last 64 clash with Kingdom Boys. Celtic’s 6-1 win over Shannon Town ensured this and came thanks to goals from Emmet O’Shea, Ryan O’Grady, Christian Casey, Neil O’Shea from a cracking free kick, a long range James Darmody effort and an og made by the hassling qualities of Jack McCarthy.
The next target for the clubs who make the last 32 is to reach the last 8 as these teams will also gain entry into the Danone Cup play-off.
14’s National Cup:
Kingdom Boys set up a last 64 clash away to Pike Rovers, conquerors of Inter Kenmare. The Tralee side were easy winners over Bridge United where Dillon Robinson was unstoppable, scoring 5. Kevin Williams, Fiachra Ennis and Dara Lowth were the other scorers.
Unfortunately Inter were not able to set up an all Kerry clash as they went down to Pike 5-1. The home side were 3-1 down and pushed hard to get one back but were caught on the break.
Killarney Celtic will be happy to be at home in the next round after they were made fight all the way by BT Harps. The game in Templemore went to extra time before Celtic went through 5-3. Michael Devlin, Sean Doherty, Shane O’Sullivan, Lee Downing and Gearoid Looney were the Hoops scorers.
They now face Kilcornan in the next round to see if they can get into the Open Draw on December 14th.
There was no luck for Killarney Athletic who went down to Nenagh 8-1 in Round 3 or Listowel Celtic who lost to Mungret Regional in Round 4.
16’s National Cup:
The two Killarney sides were on the road and both had very good wins to move to within one win of the open draw. Killarney Celtic had a handy win in Ennis putting 6 past the Town side. Peter McCarthy and Michael Potts got 2 each with Dara Moynihan and Cathal O’Shea adding one each. Celtic will welcome Herbertstown to Celtic Park in Round 4.
Killarney Athletic had a much tougher battle against Shannon Town but they came out on the right side of a 2-1 win. Patrick Daly and David Naughton were the scorers to set up an away trip to Aisling Annacotty.
MWFAI 14’s Cup semi Final:
Killarney won the battle of the Celtic’s in the Munster Women’s U14 Cup semi- final. Goals from Hannah O’Donoghue, who got 4, Siobhan Burns with 3 and one from Kate Stack sent Killarney Celtic into their first ever Munster Girls Final. They will meet Hollyhill in the final after the Cork side beat Killmallock 6-4 after extra time.
This means that we have a Kerry girls side in both the 14’s and 16’s Munster Finals as Listowel Celtic are to meet Nenagh in older age groups decider.
Both of these games are provisionally set for Saturday, December 7th.

Ryan Dennehy and Jordan Coffey replied for Castleisland.

Gearoid Coffey netted 3 with Pat O’Connor and Nathan and Dylan Callaghan all scoring one each in a 6-2 win.
