Killarney Celtic 0-5 Ballingarry
killarney Celtic girls tried hard against a brilliant well drilled Ballingarry side who were just too good and dominated from start to finish . They went ahead after 5 mins from their outstanding playmaker Annabelle Mulcaire Quill, and we held out till close to half time when they got the second goal from their pacey left winger Eleanor Blake.
Killarney Celtic battled gamely 2nd half , Sadbh O’Brien , Ciara Forde and Tara Cronin in goal fought a valiant rear-guard action supported by Sadbh O’Halloran, Erin O’Sullivan broke up the play in midfield, but Ballingarry added a further 3 goals in 2nd half the highlight a team goal finished again by their left winger. Killarney Celtic never gave up but we only created a couple of attacks through link up play Jessica Leggate and Amelia Carroll Kelly , and a some great runs from Ali Bowler who we could not get on the ball enough. Ballingarry made a nice gesture before the game exchanging pennants and chocolates , and a minute silence in honour of Padraig Hartnett RIP which was hugely appreciated. Player of the match Tara Cronin in goals who was superb throughout.
We wish Ballingarry the best of luck going forward. Killarney Celtic now go in to the National Trophy where they have received a bye in round 1. They will meet Lough Derg or Listowel Celtic in round 2.

LIMERICK DESMOND 3-2 KERRY GAME 1
Both our Kerry 12s teams opened their campaign with an away trip to Limerick Desmond. Kerry’s first game ended unfortunately with a 3-2 loss trailed 2-0 at the break to a shot from edge of the box and a set piece. Kerry dominated the 2nd half and deservedly equalised with 2 goals from Eric Corcoran. They went on and got a winner with 3 mins to go and held on.
LIMERICK DESMOND V KERRY GAME 2
Kerry’s second team dominated the second game from start .Leading at the break 2-0 through goals from Ryan O Connor and Denys Moiseiev. The second half was more of the same Kerry playing into a strong breeze once again controlled the play and were unlucky not to add to their tally, but the most pleasing aspect was keeping a clean sheet well done to all 20 players that played today in their first outing as Kerry players.

The second half brought more of the same and Kerry dominated without scoring .Kerry hit the crossbar atwice and the up right once .The score finished 2-0 with stand out performances from Killian O Sullivan and Adrian O Connor.Thr second game produced a 2-2 all draw with fine performances from Enna Hennigen and Jayden Hurley, but the performance of the day over the two games goes to Luke Mac Gearailt who saved a certain goal on his own line and then within 3 minutes ran up the wing ,passed two players and cut inside to hit a shot from 24 metres to the roof of the net .A great start for Kerry.

U15 Inter League
In Kerry’s first game of the SFAI under 15 Inter League, since the Kennedy Cup, Kerry came away winners against a well organised West Cork (who should have been in the final eight of the Kennedy Cup only for a freak set of results)who finished 11th at the Kennedy Cup . Ben Kelleher opened the scoring with a blistering run down the right wing to score into the top corner for a fantastic finish. Kerry doubled the scores from a corner when Jayden Fennell found the West Cork net from a corner. Just after half time Jayden Fennell made it 3 with a cool finish into the corner of the West Cork goal. West Cork got two late goals with 5 minutes remaining. But it was Kerry who deservedly came away with the points.
Best for Kerry were Ben Kelleher, Jayden Fennell, Joshua Minnie and Mark O’Carroll. Man of the match was Jack Hallissey with a fantastic display in midfield.
