BEREAVEMENT The death took place on Thursday last October 22nd of former Kerry and Asdee footballer, Tom Fitzgerald of Parteen, County Clare and late of Asdee Village The late Tom was an accomplished footballer on his day and was goalkeeper on the Kerry Senior Football team that won the Munster Final defeating Cork in the Athletic Grounds Cork in 1958 and also played with North Kerry side Feale Rangers in the County Championship. He was a member of the successful Asdee Intermediate team during the 50s and won a North Kerry Intermediate Championship in 1956 playing a leading role at centre forward. During the early 60s he was a prominent member of the Ballylongford senior football team. On behalf of St. Marys Asdee G A A Club we would like to offer our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
SHANNON RANGERS. There was huge disappointment by the huge continguent that followed Shannon Rangers Minor footballers on Saturday last to Strand Road Pitch, Tralee in their quest for a place in the Keanes Super Value County Championship final. However the team certainly under-performed and came off second best to a well drilled Dingle side that fully deserved their victory on a score of Dingle 2-10 Shannon Rangers 1-7. and a place in the final against Mid Kerry. Local players from the Asdee/Bally combination side both Darragh Keane, 2pts and Ciaran O Connor, 4pts excelled and couldn’t be faulted for their efforts. Other members of the panel were Tadhg McEllistrim, Jack Mulvihill, Darren Murphy. Full report in the sports section of the Kerryman.
