Tesco Community Fund
As you may have seen in Tesco, Park Road, and Tesco in town, three charities are picked every 6 weeks. Killarney Celtic Football For All have been chosen for Tesco in town.
When you shop in Tesco you will receive a blue token. We would appreciate it if you can tell everyone you know to either put them in our section in town or leave them upstairs in the club house and we will put them into town.
Topaz Cash For Clubs
We are looking to get as many club members and friends to take Topaz Cash for Clubs cards. The idea is that when you spend €40 on fuel you have a card stamped. The more stamps we get the better chance we have of winning! We will be handing out cards at training sessions and they can be collected from the office or at any Topaz station.
Results
U16 Cup Final: Killorglin 1 Killarney Celtic 1 (Celtic win 5-4 on penalties)
Luke O’Donoghue set up Cian Casey for a superb goal but Killorglin hit back through a great free-kick. With neither side able to break the deadlock, it went to the dreaded penalty shoot-out, and Celtic scored all five of theirs with Niall O’Donoghue, Mark Harnett, David Clifford, Lorcan Monagle and Michael Potts scoring while an unlucky Killorglin missed just once.
U15 Premier: St. Brendans Park 2 Killarney Celtic 1
In the end, it all came down to this one game, and Park’s win gives them a deserved title and our congratulations. Ian McGillicuddy scored for us with a penalty.
U15 Div One: Killarney Celtic B 0 Killorglin 3
A valiant attempt and a good contest, but Killorglin were just that bit sharper.
U15 Div One: Killarney Celtic B 0 Killarney Athletic 3
No joy for the Cs either against a very good Athletic side.
U14 Div One Plate: Killarney Celtic B 2 Killarney Celtic C 5
The Bs were understrength and the Cs took advantage through Alan Dineen (2), Dylan McCarthy, James Darmody, and Luke Crowley all hitting the mark. Evan Lyne scored two crackers for the Bs.

U14 Girls Cup Semi-Final: Killarney Celtic 0 Listowel Celtic 5
Once again Aoife Horgan was a scoring sensation for Listowel.
U12 Div One: Killarney Celtic B Killarney Athletic 1
A draw was a fair result between two well-matched and sporting teams. Barney Parsons scored for us, with Rossa Bellew on the mark for Athletic. Rory Dorrian had a stormer as a sweeper.
U12 Shield Semi-Final: Killorglin B 1 Killarney Celtic C 1 (Celtic win 6-5 on penalties)
Daniel Okwute continued his hot streak with another vital goal in a Celtic shirt, but the game finished level and we had another penalty shoot-out, with Celtic going through on a 6-5 scoreline.
U12 Cup: Camp 0 Killarney Celtic 3
Our A team faced Camp last Monday night in the Kerry Cup and, given his recent exploits, one player was always likely to be called up and sure enough, Daniel Okwute obliged with a superb hat-trick.
Congratulations to U15 Player Mike Doyle on making the Kerry Schoolboys/Schoolgirls Team of the Week.
U10 Challenge: A big thank you to Macroom FC, who brought their U10 Girls down for a friendly challenge match. A great day was had by all and we will be making a return visit soon.
Mini Blitz: Celtic Park hosted a mini-blitz for U7 and U8 players between ourselves and Athletic, and it was great day of fun for everybody, with some very good soccer on display too.
