MINORS  Bally/Asdee  4-10  Ballyduff/Duagh 4-8. On top for the bigger
part of the game Bally/Asdee Minor footballers advanced to the North
Kerry Division 2 Final defeating Ballyduff/Duagh by a 2pt margin.
Holding big leads at different times in the game they seemed to take
the leg off the pedal allowing the opposition back and when the final
whistle went they were just holding on. The goal scorers were Michael
Holly; (2), Thomas Doherty and Eoin O Connor 1 each. Bally/Asdee will
take on either Moyvane/Tarbert or Finuge who contest the other semi

CHAMPIONSHIP. The Semi Final draw for the Bernard O Callaghan Memorial
North Kerry Senior Football Championship in Association with McMunns
Bar and Restaurant, Ballybunion took place at the Monthly Meeting of
the North Kerry Football Board on Thursday night November 24th  at the
Listowel Emmets Club House and with 14 teams entering  along with
having 10 games played the four teams standing at the semi final stage
are Ballydonoghue, St. Senans, Tarbert and Listowel Emmets.

Along with our local club delegate Patsy Coughlan all eyes were on the hat for
that eagerly awaited draw and the following pairings came out; Tarbert
will take on St. Senans while last years champions Listowel Emmets
will cross swords with Ballydonoghue. The first semi final will go
ahead at Frank Sheehy Park, Listowel on this Sunday December 4th and
certainly this game has all the ingredients of a cliff hanger. Both
have been impressive in their run it to this stage; Tarbert who have 7
titles to their name with their last success six years ago in 2010.
The Shannonsiders received a bye to the Quarter Finals defeating
Moyvane to advance to this stage. St. Senans really turned on the
style in their Quarter Final demolition of pre match favourites
Castleisland Desmonds  after another one sided affair against Duagh in
Round 1. Senans have had plenty success down through the years both in
North Kerry and in the County but they have failed to land the coveted
Eamon O Donoghue Cup. Finalists in both 1980 and 2000; could this be
the year they finally land the most sought after trophy at District
Board. Next up on Sunday December 4th the second semi final will see
Ballydonoghue v Listowel  Emmets do battle at Con Brosnan Park,
Moyvane. Both games will have a starting time of 2 30pm.

LOOKING BACK. Since the club was reformed in 1986 there have been some
notable achievements and victories both on and off the field to look
back on; the Opening of Pairc Breathnach; John Kennedys stint as a
player and mentor with various Kerry teams along with his involvement
with Clare at both Intercounty and at club level, Eoin Kennedy unlucky
not to have captured an All Ireland football medal, John Joe O Carroll
first person from the club to be elected to the County Board as
Treasurer and at present representing his County as a delegate to
Croke Park.

County Novice, North Kerry Junior and Senior, Intermediate
plus so many more and of course that famous day up in Knockaderry when
our Senior footballers created their own bit of history when they say
off a fancied Charleville in the Munster Novice Final; certainly a day
that will long be remembered not alone in the club but in North Kerry
circles and beyond. For such a small club to achieve so much was
unbelievable; but credit the Management, Players and our loyal band of
supporters who were there to cheer the boys in Black and Amber on to
new heights and history.

However there is one game that is still talked about amongst our supporters and that will linger long in club and that is that famous evening at Con Brosnan Park, Moyvane in 1991 when our Senior footballers won the North Kerry Senior League Division 2 putting one over on Tarbert who were at that particular time the 1990 Bernard O Callaghan Memorial Senior Football Champions and League
Division 1 holders; I suppose it was the first real test that the club
had at Senior level and they came out with flying colours. In the end
after a terrific game of football victory was achieved by Asdee on a
score of; Asdee 2-15 Tarbert 3-9.

Captain was Sean Doran and he was presented with the Cup by the then Chairman of the North Kerry Football Board Bernie O Callaghan; Man of the Match went to midfielder Barry Healy. The team and substitutes were; Tom Gorman, Gerdie O Carroll, Tom Kennedy, Sean O Keeffe, Kevin O Callaghan, Mike O Connor, Eric O Neill, Sean Doran, capt, Barry Healy, Micheal O Connor, Paddy Dee, Donie O Keeffe, John Kennedy, J. P. McElligott, John Joe O
Carroll. Subs; Tony McElligott, Mike Moloney, Tom Long, Johnny O
Sullivan, Sean White, Martin Costello, Eamon O Connor, Neilie Buckley,
John Deenihan, Padraig Vallelly.

from any interested in representing the Club in at least one of the
following; Figure dancing, Solo Singing, Recitation, Ballad Group,
Leiriu, Instrumental Music, Set Dancing and Question Time.Down through
the years the club have plenty success in this competition within the
County with Recitation, Solo Singing, Quiz excelling at County Final
level; The Novelty Act of  Nora Stack, Ann Maria Tydings, Gerdie O
Carroll and Jack Hennessy got through to the Munster Semi Finals while
just one step away from an All Ireland Final were the Ballad Group of
Jeanette O Connor, Mary Fagan, Paddy McElligott and Jimmy Quinn along
with the late Mick Hennessy in Recitation who got through on two
occasions to Munster Finals but failed to get the nod. Of course Asdee
did get through to the All Ireland Finals in the Novelty Act during
the late 70s but due to unforeseen circumstances they failed to make
the journey; those historic names were Kathleen, Kennedy, Helena O
Keeffe, Joseph O Keeffe and Martin Mulvihill. The history of Scor has
been very healthy in the Parish down through the years and especially
with the wealth of talent thats available out there and it would be
tremendous if you come forward to represent both your Club and Asdee
once again. All you have to do is to contact Club Cultural Officer,
Kathleen Carmody for further information on Scor details.
