Sympathy is extended to the families of Margaret O’Connor, Kilbrean and formerly Tournonaugh and Jerry Kerrisk, Inch who died recently. May they rest in peace.
There was great sadness within Comhaltas members in the parish when news came through of the sad passing of Margaret O’Connor, Kilbrean and Tournonagh. Margaret along with her husband Tom and their daughters were active members of the Branch at both participation and administration over a long period of time. Margaret was a member of the very successful Senior Set dancing group in the late ninties and early 2000’s and enjoyed huge success at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann and numerous other competitions. The Branch would like to extend their deep sympathy to Tom, Karen, Tara, Marguerite and the extended O’Connor and Cronin families on their sad loss. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam uasal.

MINOR FOOTBALL FIXTURE
Minor Football fixture Kilcummin v Gneeveguilla this Saturday @ 4pm in KilcumminMinor
PETROLEUM SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Kilcummin 1-12 Dingle 0-18. If one expected Dingle to have an easy ride with this one, being that we were already destined for a relegation playoff, they reckoned without the spirit of this team. They matched favourites Dingle throughout until the last 10 minutes when their superior scoring power told and they ran out three point winners. Shane McSweeney was belying his years at midfield but had to retire early and we certainly felt his loss in those closing minutes. A brilliant Kevin McCarthy goal, a penalty save by Brendan Kealy and some amazing points from Paul O’Shea were the highlights from a Kilcummin perspective but the never say die attitude and resilience of our players is a joy to behold and very encouraging going forward. We now face a relegation battle in an effort to maintain our senior status against Templenoe but first it’s Mid Kerry in two weeks time in the County Championship. A warm welcome to Chris O’Leary who played his first game in a year after returning from Australia while we wish a speedy recovery to our injured players, Kieran Murphy, Enda O’Sullivan and Dan Moynihan. Team: B. Kealy, D. Maher, K. McSweeney, O. O’Connor, Chris O’Leary, S. O’Leary, J. Nagle K. Gorman, S. McSweeney, P. O’Leary, G O’Leary, K. McCarthy, N. Duggan, P. O’Shea, M. Keane. Subs used Mikey O’Shea, Danny Cronin.
