Credit Union County Senior Football League: Division 1, Round 6 Result
Milltown/Castlemaine 2-17 (23)

Spa 1-13 (16)

Venue: Spa GAA Grounds, Killarney

A great result for our Senior ‘A’ side and management in Killarney on Saturday evening as we picked up a big victory in Round 6 of the Credit Union County Senior Football League against Spa.

We led 1-11 to 1-06 after a very commanding first half performance with the goal being well taken by Cathal Moriarty and some fine pointed efforts from Sean Hogan, Conor Spillane, Cillian Burke and Eanna O’Connor.

Spa opened the scoring early in the second half through an Evan Cronin pointed free and he exchanged scores with Eanna O’Connor moments later but that was as good as it got for the hosts for a period of time as Milltown/Castlemaine took over again and scored four points on the spin to leave it 1-16 to 1-08 as we headed for the home straight.

The hosts fought back as you’d expect and cut the gap back to five at 1-16 to 1-11 with five minutes remaining. Cometh the hour and cometh the man however as Eanna O’Connor hit the back of the Spa net on 56 minutes thanks to good build up play which saw Cillian Burke set him up…

It brought O’Connor’s overall tally for the evening to an incredible 1-11 and sealed the victory. There were three more points before the final whistle went as Spa added two frees and Jerome Flynn rounded off a good evening’s work for our lads to leave us with a seven point victory at the end as we emerged victorious by 2-17 to 1-13.

Well done lads, mighty stuff!

This saw the team and management qualify for the Central Region Final yesterday evening (Monday, May 15th) where they met Laune Rangers in Keel but despite a spirited effort, the lads came up short as Laune Rangers emerged victorious on a score of 2-13 to 0-11.

All involved in Milltown/Castlemaine GAA would like to pass on our sincere condolences to the family of the late Thomas Spillane of Knockavota, Milltown, Co. Kerry who passed away in recent days.
Thomas’ son Michael, daughter in law Patricia and grandchildren Conor and Daragh are active members of our club with Conor lining out for our Senior side on Saturday evening against Spa and putting in a terrific performance at wing back, tagging on a point. Daragh meanwhile represents our Minors and was part of the side which had victories over Austin Stacks and Keel/Listry last week. Michael and Patricia are great supporters of their boys and the club.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Thomas’s family and friends at this most difficult time.
Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

A hard fought win in difficult conditions for our under 12 girls last week when they played Southern Gaels ‘B’ in the second round of grading in Cahersiveen.
A difficult wind in the first half left the girls trailing by 3 points at the halfway point, but they bounced back in the second half to grind out the win!
