Senior Football, Moynihan Cup Quarter-final

Presentation Milltown 2-13  St. Michael’s Listowel 1-11

In a thrilling game of football played In Cahersalee on Wednesday 23rd of October, Pres Milltown were victorious over their Listowel counterparts by 5 points.  Joseph Clifford kicked Milltown’s first 3 points, 2 absolute beauties from play from the the sideline.  Listowel fought back to level and coming up to half-time with the scores at 6 points apiece Chris Doncel and Dara Coffey combined and Chris struck the Listowel net with a bullet of a shot to send us to the break 3 ahead.  St. Michael’s fought back with a goal of their own to level after 10 minutes of the second half.  Momentum swung between the two teams right throughout the next 10 minutes until Conall Murphy, who had been very prominent in attack  for Milltown, scored a great goal.   A fine point from Conor Keane gave Pres. Milltown a 6 point cushion.  Listowel fought valiantly to close the gap to 5 but the Milltown boys held out for a deserved victory.

We can now look forward to the Moynihan cup semi-final after mid-term.

Under16.5

This team has qualified for the Joe O’Connor quarter-finals after a fine victory over Castleisland Community College.

Under 15

Had a great victory over Killenaule of Tipperary in the second round of Munster.  An unlucky 1 point defeat to Rice College Ennis put an end to a fine campaign on Tuesday 22nd October.  This team has a very bright future indeed and should be looking forward keenly to their Kerry competition in the spring.

First year

The first year lunchtime league is at the semi-final stages and has unearthed some wonderful talent.  More on this to follow!
