The Credit Union County Football League Division 5 came to a conclusion recently and in fairness it was really a great achievement to fulfil all fixtures; due to injuries, retirements and immigration and other commitments so it was not easy with our players drawn from a radius of only 3 miles approximately; so, you can imagine how difficult this was.
We certainly struggled throughout the McCarthys Insurance Brokers North Kerry League Division 2 but eventually got through finishing at the wrong end of the table. Great credit is due to our Management team of John Kennedy, Brian Coughlan and Sean Doran along with our dedicated players who made sure that all games were played.
Well, the County League we set out to do as good as possible and a mid-table finishing place was very satisfying to all due to the circumstances. Still a few competitions yet to play, Kerry Petroleum Junior Club Championship with at least three games to play and then its knockout for the Bernard 0 Callaghan Memorial Senior Championship.
