12’s National Cup Last 32:
It has been another good weekend for Kerry sides in the National Cup. The three sides in action today had to travel after the League called off these games 2 weeks ago due to the storm that was raging. For two of the three to win on the road, and join the Killorglin 13’s and Park 16’s in the Last 16 were great performances and Killarney Celtic 15’s will be hoping to become the 5th Kerry sides to progress next week when the welcome Villa from Waterford to Celtic Park.
There is a double reward for the 12’s to reach the National Cup quarter finals as the last 8 will also play off for the Danone Cup. Killarney Celtic are one step away from reaching that stage.
They travelled to Peake Ville in Tipperary and came away with a 2-0 win from a tight game that was score-less at half time. James Darmody opened the scoring on the 50th minute and Jack McCarthy wrapped up the win in the 60th minute. Celtic will now welcome Southend United from Waterford in the next round.
Listowel Celtic came up against a very good Pike Rovers side and had keeper Sean O’Sullivan in great form but he was powerless to stop them hitting 5 goals. At the other end the Listowel Celtic attack was also potent with Sean McGrath getting two and Michael Fogarty a third as they just came up short.
15’s NationaL Cup Last 32:
Kingdom Boys made the long trip to Arklow Town for a game against a very good side on their All Weather pitch. However Kingdom Boys were confident and got the ideal start from goal machine Dillon Robinson after 15 minutes. However Arklow Town equalised through an og before half time.
The home side continued the momentum and went ahead mid-way through the second half and for a few minutes it looked bleak for the Tralee side. However Robinson got his second to level matters and shortly afterwards Dean Meehan became the hero when he put his side in front and set up a home tie against Athlone’s Willow Park in the Last 16.
Next Week: Killorglin 13’s will be looking to become the first Kerry side into the Last 8 as they travel to Galway to face Mervue.
Kerry Cups:
John Murphy 12’s Cup Round 1:

Daniel Considine and John McClane both scored twice for Killarney Celtic to set up a home tie against Park A in the Last 16. Oisin Quill, David Geaney and Cory Murphy were on the mark for an unlucky Inter side.
Killorglin B are also through to Round 2 as they were 5-2 winners over Fenit on the All Weather pitch. Mikey O’Donnell, Callum Moriarty, Dara Mangan, Keya Flaherty and Dylan Moriarty all scored for the winners with Eddie McCarthy getting both for Fenit.

Tom Hayse 14’s Cup Round 1:
Inter Kenmare were the first side to book their place in the last 8 as they defeated Killarney Celtic C 5-1 on Friday night. Tom Murnane, Dylan O’Connor, Cian O’Connor, Tadgh Siochru and Daniel Fitzpatrick were the goal scorers for Inter.
