Full Time Result

Venue: Gallarus

A hard earned draw back in West Kerry this afternoon against Division One opposition. We trailed by three heading into injury time but a late penalty which was won by Cillian Burke and converted by Substitute Jonathan O’Sullivan has sent us back home with a well deserved result following our lads effort and response to last week’s defeat. Great character shown by the lads and thanks to all the supporters for travelling.

Round 3 takes place next weekend when Milltown/Castlemaine entertain Laune Rangers at the Paddy Burke Memorial Park.
