Park latest Kerry side in National Cup ¼’s:
THE 2013/14 National Cup will be remembered for many things, some off the field! But in Kerry the competition is memorable for all the right ones. St Brendan’s Park are the 3rd Kerry side to make it to the last 8 in the country – joining Killorglin who were sadly knocked out and Kingdom Boys 15’s who are due to play Swilly Rovers.
This was a day to remember for The Park are a huge crowd turned out in Christy Leahy Park where the home side made the generous gesture of donating all proceeds to the Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation with Finbarr cheering on The Park.
The home side were very professional throughout the game and apart from one effort off the crossbar restricted Home Farm to very few efforts. The Park played a great brand off football and he Jesse Stafford Lacey pulling the strings in mid field. But this was one of those games where the sum of the team was greater than any individual player. All over the field the Park tackled hard, chased and harried and created chances.
The vital one came in the 60th minute when a ball into the box saw Karl Mullins being very clever to stay on side and he kept his cool to play a sweet ball across the box for Luke Moynihan to tap in.
The Park could have doubled their lead when they were awarded a penalty but the Home Farm keeper made a very good save from Jesses spot kick.
But it didn’t matter as 1 goal was enough to see The Park into the last 8 and a home tie against either Salthill Devon/ St Joe’s Boys or Abbeyleix.
13’s Cup:
Kingdom Boys booked their place in the last 8 of the 13’s Cup with a 5-1 win over Fenit. Nathan Holden and Sean Kennedy both scored two each and Daniel Bowler the fifth.
Park 2 is the won:
Away from the fields and into the gym and a huge crowd of supporters thronged Mounthawk for the finals of the Futsal creating a great atmosphere.
Pool 1 winners Killarney Celtic took on Pool 2 runners up Castleisland with both giving it all. Neither side could break the other down and after a 0 all draw it went to penalties. Castleisland got through 5-4. Pool 2 winners The Park 2 saw off their neighbours Kingdom Boys 3-0.
The final saw they young stars of The Park take the title on a 3-0 score-line but when you see that the Park’s keeper Liam Carmody was man of the match it shows that the final was much closer than the score-line.
The u8 Futsal will take place on April 12th and as many clubs as possible are asked to enter teams and give their young players the chance to experience the atmosphere and thrill of Futsal.
U12 players make Kerry debut’s:
The u12 Inter League competition is the first time that players get the opportunity to play for their county.

The 14 Premier Division has a new leader as Kingdom Boys 1-0 win over Inter Kenmare sees them move onto 17 points. Dillon Robinson got the only goal of a cracking game. There was nothing between the sides with great battles between Dillon O’Connor and K Boys Kevin Williams and the aforementioned Robinson and Inter’s Dan McCarthy. Once the Tralee side went ahead they were just able to hold out Inter whose through Dillon O’Connor, Ben Crowley and Daniel Casey. Despite the best efforts of Tom Murnane and Daniel Fitzpatrick Inter just couldn’t find an equaliser.
The Park were leading the way but their 3-2 loss has seen them slip to second. This game started in a whirlwind with The Park 2-0 ahead after 8 minutes through Robin McCarthy and Michael O’Gara but Listowel Celtic were level by the 15th thanks to strikes from Darragh O’Donoghue and Jake Kelly. Kelly got a wonder goal from 25 yards in the last few minutes to win the game.
