Killarney Celtic
Congratulations Warmest congratulations to Ramona and Sean Burchill on the birth of their son Dara Nicholas from everybody at Killarney Celtic.
Condolences To the family and all the thousands of friends of Jackie Healy Rae - virtually every club and most people of South Kerry have their own stories about the Kilgarvan legend, all we as a club can say is that he always gave us great support and encouragement and was a wonderful friend and supporter. He was a recent match 3 winner in our Lotto and he put far more into Celtic than he ever took out. Ar Dheis De go raibh a anam dilis.
Closing For Christmas The club will be closing for Christmas after Saturday 20th December. Normal activities will resume in early January.
Last Man Standing A lot of early fallers again - a big thank you to Chelsea, Arsenal, and my own nemesis Spurs
Club Shop Killarney Celtic’s shop is open on Saturdays from 12 noon to 2.00pm. We have a full new range of fantastic merchandise to suit every age, size, gender, and especially budget.

Contact Mags on 089 2164639 or Mary on 086 6485809 for details.
Results Denny Premier B: Killarney Celtic B 3 Ballymac Galaxy 0. 0-0 after a close first half. Celtic were on top but Ballymac were holding out well until Matt Keane, in his first game back for Killarney Celtic, shattered the deadlock with a brilliant strike from 25 yards. Valdimir Sirotiak and William Courtney added two more to wrap up a good win.
U16 Div One: Killarney Celtic B 5 Killorglin 3. Ruairi Dorrian hit a magnificent hat-trick, supplemented by goals from Cian Doyle and Barney Parson, for a great win in a very exciting game of soccer against a really good Killorglin side.
U14 Girls: Listowel Celtic 3 Killarney Celtic 5. A real humdinger. Anna Clifford scored two, with Chloe O’Connor, Ciara Randles, and Lauren Burke got the others in a thrilling game where we needed every goal and every ounce of effort from everyone to get the win. We opened the scoring through Chloe, but Listowel’s Aoife Horgan struck twice to put them in front. Anna hit a superb volley from outside the box (Stephanie Roche, were you watching?) and then put us in front 3-2. In the second half Aoife Horgan completed her hat-trick for Listowel, but a strong finish by us included goals from Ciara and Lauren. Everyone played superb but Anna Clifford was absolutely scintillating. Gillian Courtney and Kayleigh McGlashan were outstanding in defence.
U14 Premier: Killorglin 1 Killarney Celtic 0. We were well on top in the first half and had more possession throughout the game but couldn’t break down a really well-organised Killorglin defence, whereas they took their best chance superbly and hung on to get a deserved win. David Dineen, Mark Cooper, and Caolan Ryan were excellent for Celtic.
U14 Div One: Killarney Celtic B 4 Killarney Celtic C 0. A great and really challenging game as the C’s put up a great challenge before eventually succumbing to goals from David Cantillon, Sipo O’Neill (2), and Kristian Komote.
U12 Premier: Killarney Celtic 8 Tralee Dynamos 0. Wow! Incredible stuff by the lads, they played some awesome soccer. Ciaran Dennehy and Daniel Akwote each got hat-tricks, with William Shine and Cian McMahon also on target. Everybody played well, but Jack McClean at left back was simply outstanding.
U12 Div One: Killorglin 3 Killarney Celtic 5. A great game, a great display, and a great result. Barney Parsons and Cian Doyle were on target while Ruairi Dorrian collected a hat-trick.
U12 Div Two: Killarney Celtic C 3 Asdee 2
Celtic came out on top in a five goal thriller.
U7/U8 Blitz Our Under 8 and Under 7 boys travelled the short distance to Woodlawn Road for a Blitz organised by Killarney Athletic. Mastergeeha and Inter Kenmare also brought players in both age groups.The games were played with fun, spirit and good sportsmanship. We fielded two U8 and one U7 team and all our boys did the club proud with good play and great behaviour. Thanks to the parents & coaches too. Athletic had great hospitality & even had burgers on the BBQ for us - very seasonal!
