Kerry girls win in Cork in Gaynor
The Kerry 13’s Gaynor side travelled to the CWSSL (Cork) for their final Group game on the back of a good win over Limerick County.
And they followed it up with an even better 2-0 win. Laura Falvey got both Kerry goals either side of half time. Cork threw everything at the visitors for the rest of the game and did hit the crossbar but the Kerry defence were excellent in keeping their hosts at bay. The win did come at a cost as Emma Daly picked up an ankle injury and we wish her a speedy return.
The Kerry 15’s went down 4-0 to the same opposition and both squads now await news of the knock out stages of the 2021 Gaynor Cups.
Kerry Kennedy Cup side sees off Kilkenny
While the 2021 Kennedy Cup is a different competition from the usual mid-summer week in UL it is not any less eagerly contested. Kerry finished after a very good group phase and were drawn away to Kilkenny in the Bowl quarter final.
And it was the Kerry boys who have progressed to the semi-final thanks to an Oisin Fleming goal set up by a defence splitting pass from Brian O’Shea. Kilkenny put the Kerry defence under a lot of pressure but found keeper Pearce Moynihan in great form on the rare occasion that got past the Kerry rear guard.
Clare and Galway are also through to the semi-final with the final spot going to the winners of the NDSL / Limerick Desmond game.
SFAI National Cup Rounds 2 and 3:

Gio McCarthy hit four goals for Killorglin and there were added to by a penalty from Charlie Griffin and a goal from Bryan McKenna.
