Senior Co Championship. Well done to our senior players and management who recorded a marvellous victory over Mid Kerry on Sunday. Despite being under considerable pressure early on gradually established a foothold in the game and courtesy of two goals from Kieran Murphy and Noel Duggan we lead by six points at half time 2-7 to 0-7.
Mid Kerry cut the deficit two a single point in the third quarter but our players really showed their character in those final 15 minutes to regain control and run out winners by 5 points. This was one of the best wins by this team in recent years and it was without doubt a team effort but Paul O Shea, Kieran Murphy, Oscar O Connor, Shane McSweeney, Enda O Sullivan and Noel Duggan deserve special mention on this occasion. We now progress to rd. 3 where we will play St Kieran’s this coming Sunday at 3.15 pm in Fitzgerald stadium.
