National Cup Reports:
Double Defeat for Celtic:
The Round of 32 saw the end of the hopes of Killarney Celtic’s 14’s and 16’s as both went out at home. A goal in either half saw the DDSL’s Cherry Orchard saw a gallant Killarney Celtic 14’s National Cup hopes end. Celtic put it up to their illustrious opponents but were caught out by well worked free kicks.
In the 16’s Killarney Celtic came from 1-0 down to equalise through a David Clifford penalty in their clash with Mungret Regional from Limerick. Neither side could find the winner even though both had chances. Indeed two superb defensive blocks, including one in the last minute of normal time on Michael Potts, saw Mungret hang on but in fairness to them they also had a couple of opportunities without really testing Robert Osburne in the Celtic goal.
The winner came in the second period of extra time following a Mungret free and they now march on to the last 16 but without two players who were red carded in an incident after the final whistle. Celtic had finished the match with ten players and also had one sent off in that schmozzle following the game.
JK Sports 12’s:
Leaders Inter held in 12’s Division 1:

Those leaders are being led by Ballyhar who missed their chance of going to the top of the table are they went down to Killorglin B in a seven goal thriller. Peter Cosgrove, James Horan and Brian Burke were the scorers for Ballyhar but 2 from Keith Evans and one each from Jack Sullivan and Keith Foley gave Killorglin B the win. Ballyhar stay second while Killorglin’s three points sees them go into 3rd on 10 points.
No goals the story in Division 2:
While there were no goals in both games in Division 2 the Park C drawing 0-0 with League leaders and club-mates Park B was certainly the highlight. The Park B were looking for their 7th win in a row but couldn’t find a way past the C team’s defence.
Killarney Celtic C missed the chance to move into second place on their own as they had to settle for a point away to Camp Juniors B. The result sees Celtic C and Tralee Dynamos now tied on 9 points.
