Lough Lein Anglers
The 2015 fishing season will shortly come to a close for another year.
Thankfully it has been a safe year too for club members who have fished
Competitions on Lough Lein, Clonee, Currane and Caragh lakes. Our ‘Angler of the Year’ title race went ‘right down to the wire’. The penultimate competition on Caragh Lake was won by Timmy O’ Connor, which gave him a lead of eight points over Phil Horan.
The title was decided on Lough Lein last weekend. In strong easterly winds, it was a challenging day on the lake. Phil landed with five fine trout for the weigh-in, giving him a total of 26 points. This drew him level with Timmy. However the ever consistent Timmy had two trout, which earned him one point and the ‘Angler of the Year’ award. All of this is not to take from Jerry Buckley’s fine win in the
competition. Jerry landed with four trout. One of these weighed a fine
1.1/2lbs. Phil was placed second and Francis Kiely third. Prize giving took place after dinner in the Dromhall Hotel.
2015 Annual Competition Results:
St Patrick’s Cup (Overall Winner)
Jerry Buckley
The McCarthy Cup (Best Team)
Terence Keane, Phil Horan, Patsy O’ Flaherty, Krzysztof Sywab.
The O’Flaherty Cup (Best Boat)

FAI Junior Cup: Killarney Celtic 6 Broadford 0
A superb display by Celtic. We were much tighter at the back than last week and took the game to Broadford right from the start. Conor Randall and Trevor Nagle had us in front 2-0 at the break. Trevor and Chris O’Leary, very impressive as a new player to our ranks, doubled our advantage after the break. Trevor completed his hat-trick before Matt Keane neatly latched onto a great through ball by the excellent Conor Randall and fired home to complete the scoring. Trevor, Conor, and Chris were probably the pick of Celtic, but everybody played really well and worked hard for each other all through.
Youths League: Killarney Celtic 4 Mastergeeha 2
A great win against tough opposition to open our campaign. Cathal O’Shea and Stephen McCarthy notched two each, with Mark Harnett giving an outstanding display.
U15 Div One: Ballyhar Dynamos B 4 Killarney Celtic B 0
Ballyhar were much stronger and kept the pressure on from start to finish. In the circumstances, Celtic put up a brave battle but the final score is a fair reflection, in fact our goalkeeper Adam Kelly had to make some good saves along the way. Tommy Maguire in defence had an absolute stormer for Celtic, a class display from the first whistle to the final one.
U13 Div One: Killorglin B 3 Killarney Celtic B 2
Superb game by both sides and a great atmosphere. Josh Livingston and Ruairí Dorrian got our goals.
U12 Premier: Killarney Celtic 1 Killarney Athletic 2
A great battle and a very sporting game, with Athletic taking the spoils despite a great goal by Sean Fitzgerald for us.
