Uneven Shield’s go to Iveragh Utd & Ballyhar:
The decision of the League to hold all its Shield and Cup final at Mounthawk Park has certainly led to some exciting game. This weekend the action was in the Uneven Shields and after two very good games Iveragh United and Ballyhar were crowned the winners.
John Joe Naughton 13’s Shield:
To score in a final is always nice but to hit a hat trick makes it a memorable day. And that’s what Iveragh United’s Ronan Teehan did in the John Joe Naughton 13’s final. His goals came in the 25th, 30th and 32nd minute to put the South Kerry side in position to win their second trophy of the season. He could have had more goals but for two very good saves by the Mastergeeha keeper and one that came back off the crossbar.
Mastergeeha pulled one back through a Brendan O’Leary penalty but Iveragh were just that bit too strong on the day.
Tommy Naughton and members of the Naughton were on hand to present the Shield and the Player of the Match trophy to Teehan who is the son of basketball great John and nephew of Maurice Fitzgerald.
The Healy Family 15’s Shield:
There was never going to be much between Ballyhar and Listowel Celtic B and so it proved. The side from Murt Scott Park took the Shield 2-1 thanks to goals from Patrick O’Connor and Jason Brennan. League Fixture’s Secretary Tadgh Healy presented the Healy Family to Ballyhar and the Player of the Match to the winner’s Dylan Callaghan.
Munster WFAI 14’s ¼ Final:
Listowel Celtic 14’s Girls have qualified for the Munster WFAI 14’s semi-final thanks to a 2-0 away win at Ennis Town. Aoife Horgan got both goals for the Hoops. They will face AK United from just across the Limerick border in the Last 4.
10 out of 10 For Park 12 B:
St Brendan’s Park 12 B’s are the JK Sports 12 Division Champions after defeating second placed Mastergeeha 1-0 in their final game. Conor Kirby got the all-important goal to see the Park go through their 10 game League programme without dropping a point.
Mastergeeha need 1 win from their last two games to clinch second place as they are 5 points ahead of Castleisland with both sides having played 8 games.
Castleisland kept up the pressure on the Kilbrean side after they defeated Inter Kenmare 2-0. Conor O’Neill and Manuel Sanchez got the goals.
4 points for Dingle Bay in 12 Div 3:
Dingle Bay Rovers were held to a 1 all draw by Listowel Celtic C but are still favourites to win the JK Sports 12 Division 3. They trail Killarney Celtic C by 5 points but have 3 games in hand. Cormac O’Cinneide got the goal for Dingle Bay who had earlier in the week defeated MEK 3-0.
Park C are 1 point behind Dingle Bay but have played a game more. The Tralee sides latest 3 points came after a 6-3 win over Fenit. Kasper hit 3, Lasha 2 and Obina 1 for the Park with Fenit goals came from Eddie McCarthy 2 and Dylan Ryan.
Point will do as Park beaten in 13 Div 1:
Mastergeeha were the happiest team this weekend in the Daly’s Supervalu 13 Division 1 even though they did not play. They are joint leaders with the Park who went down 2-1 to Killorglin. Dara O’Grady and Ryan Sullivan scored for Killorglin with Dan Fisher getting the goal for the Park. The Park are on 20 points from 10 games played, the same points as Mastergeeha who still have Killorglin to play. A point will do for the Kilbrean side in the last game of the League.
Win for Fenit in 13 Division 2:
Fenit won this mid-table clash with the Park C 2-1 with their goals coming from Eddie McCarthy and Ron O’Neill. Kieran Slattery replied for The Park.
Destiny in Celtic’s hands in 14’s:
The Foundation Sports 14 Premier clash of Killarney Celtic and the Park was always going to be a vital one as the Tralee side were 3 points ahead of Celtic but had a game more played. With this being the Park’s last game it was a must win for Celtic and they did 6-2. This was a wider margin than expected in a game where everything went right for Celtic.
Their goals came from Ruairi Doyle 2, Evan Looney, Ryan O’Grady, James Darmody and Niall McGillicuddy. Mervin Shalemba got both goals for the Park. A point from their last game against Killoeglin will see Killarney Celtic take the title.
Killorglin and Killarney Athletic drew 0-0 in the other game in the Division.
Leaders Dingle Bay take 4 points:
Games in the Foundation Sports 14 Division 1 saw Dingle Bay Rovers drew 2 all with Ballyhar in mid-week. Dylan Greaney and Naoise McGearailt got the goals for the West Kerry side. Jason Brennan and Dylan Callaghan replied for Ballyhar.
The same two players scored for Dingle Bay on Saturday and there were added to by 2 from Dylan Geaney. TJ McMahon hit both for the Park.
Mastergeeha went to Ballyheighue and went 1-0 down before Shane Warren equalised and then put the Kilbrean side ahead. The home side equalised with 10 minutes to go.
Listowel Celtic take points in 15’s:
A Pat Scully goal was the difference between Listowel Celtic B and Fenit giving the Hoops the points and 4th place in the table.

Mastergeeha are Champions:
A 2-1 win away to second placed Killarney Athletic gave Mastergeeha the Tralee Trophy World 16 Division 1 title. Anthony Darmody and Philip O’Leary got the all-important goals for Mastergeeha who took the title with a game to spare.
Mark Fennell got the goal for Athletic who are guaranteed the runners up spot.
