After many weeks of games with huge intensity Park As had an easy day for a change in this Kerry Cup game played in Park.

Playing against a strong wind in the first half, they were on the scoreboard after 18 seconds through Cianan Cooney.

The Killorglin lads battled bravely and it took Park almost quarter of an hour before the second was manufactured. Kieran O’Connor scored the first of an eventual hat trick, with a quality finish after excellent work from Colin Doody and Ben Hanafin.

Danny Jeffers turned provider for Sean O’Connor a few minutes later and Cianan Cooney finished the first half scoring with his second after twenty two minutes.

Five more goals followed as Park played with a strong wind in the second half but credit must go to the game young men from Killorglin who kept plugging away.

Cianan Cooney finished the game with four goals and Kieran O’Connor with three. Sean Hill and Sean O’Connor got one each.

Thanks to all the supporters who came out and also to Pa and Colm for sorting the pitch.

Panel: Liam Carmody, Ben Hanafin, Samuel Aladesanusi, Sean O’Connell, Jack Kearney, Sean Hill, Danny Jeffers, Conor Kerins, Sean O’Connor, Josh Connolly, Kieran O’Connor, Messiah Chirwa, Cianan Cooney, Colin Doody. Adam Wharton was injured and David Feeley was away.
