Down Memory Lane 1957
Close finishes in all race was the main feature of the Killarney Regatta held at Mahony's Point on Sunday July 7th. Racing was so close that at times victory was snatched from the leading crew at the finishing line as was the case in the senior sixes when it appeared as if Flesk Valley would win but a late effort by Robin Hilliard saw Fossa snatch victory at the line. Another splendid race was the Ladies Sixes which St Finans won in a photo finish. Commercials lined out as follows Junior Sixes Stroke Terry Ryan, A N Other, E O’Shea, Paddy Harnett, C Cronin, John Kissane, Cox Jack Scully, Juvenile Sixes Stroke Mick O’Sullivan, Brian Moroney, J n Murphy, M O’Connor, M Ryan, L Nolan Cox Dave O’Connor, Senior Sixes- Stroke Denis O’Brien, Sean O’Sullivan, Patrick Galvin, Jimmy Redpath, Pat Brick, Neilus Daly Cox Dave O’Connor, Ladies Sixes Stroke Kathleen Ann Fogarty, Margaret Rahilly, Nora Guerin, Sheila O’Connor, Sheila O’Meara, Noreen O’Sullivan Cox Jack Scully.

Killarney
Cycling Club
We’re getting to the sharp part of the Road racing season now and today we were in Nenagh for the Visit Nenagh Classic. This race in its third year attracted a large high quality field from all over Ireland and there was even a visiting field from Holland.
Our numbers were good but somewhat diminished because some of our team decided that discretion was the better part of valour and decided to rest the legs ahead of the Easter weekend and the sufferfest which is Rás Mumhan.
In the A1/2 race we had Benny Cassidy, John Mannix, Mike Lucey and Matt Slattery. The racing started off at a pace which from the car seemed just stupid, I figured that they would eventually have to slow down a bit but I was wrong (a common position of mine). The racing just got harder and harder as the miles went on and the course got more punishing. After about 30mins of fierce racing, the call came over the radio ‘Service for Killarney..Rear wheel’. Seconds later there was John Mannix standing on the side of the road with his rear wheel out and held aloft. In double quick time John had his wheel replaced and he was back on the road, but he had an epic challenge on hands to close down the time lost on a rampaging bunch, 30 minutes of absolutely unbelievable effort later he managed to get back to the race but the timing couldn’t have been worse, because as he got back in to the racing he was at the bottom of a steep climb and the effort to close had taken so much out of him he couldn’t maintain position. A great ride by John and I hope that his bad luck today will be his quota for the foreseeable future.
Further up the road Mike Lucey was having a great race and riding very comfortably in the main bunch. Matt Slattery and Benny Cassidy were also on song today and were in the second group on the road. With about 20Km to go this group split and Benny managed to be on the right side of this split with about ten more riders. But right away we realised that there was only one more A2 rider in this group, which meant that the race for the best A2 rider on the day was between these two. At 10Km to go Benny came back to the car and was refuelled with the energy drink of last resort in bike racing... A can of cola (No brand names will be mentioned). Pity it wasn’t something a bit stronger, he came in 20th place overall (just in the prizes) and 2nd A2 on the day.
Well done guys on a very good showing for Killarney Cycling Club on a very hard day. In the A3 race Patrick Clifford, Mike O’Mahony and Leigh Hewerdine were in action and all of them acquitted themselves well and as far as I know they were all in the top twenty of the A3 race although no prizes this week.
We were represented in the A4 race as well as Dan O’Brien and Joe O’Leary lined out and yet again and they had a good race by all accounts.
Next weekend as I have already said is one of the highlight races of our domestic calendar, Rás Mumhan and Killarney Cycling Club are in the privileged position of having 10 riders in two teams entered in this international race. It looks like a busy week and weekend ahead but all in a good cause!!! Best of luck to all who will be taking on the challenge and here’s hoping that all stay safe in what promises to be a huge weekend of cycle sport over the Easter weekend.

Last Man Standing
Round 9 and still 8 contenders to be the last on their feet - a lot of them are depending on Aston Villa to do the business this week!
Results
Denny Premier A: Listowel Celtic 2 Killarney Celtic 2
Listowel went 1-0 up through a penalty but Stephen Hayes brought us back into it. 1-1 at half-time. Ten man Killarney Celtic went down again in the second half but stayed focused and were fully deserving of a share of the points after a brilliant strike by Gintarus Paketuras.
U16 Girls: Killarney Celtic 2 Listowel Celtic 0
Disappointingly, we received a walkover when a game against a very good Listowel side would definitely have been our preference. As it is, the uncontested points mean that Killarney Celtic are the new league champions. Very well done to all players, management, and supporters.
U16 Kerry Cup: Killarney Celtic 5 Killarney Athletic 0
Killarney Celtic A took the derby against Killarney Athletic to book their place in the Tucker Kelly 16's Cup last 4. Mark Harnett, Billy Courtney, Cathal O’Shea, Michael Potts and Conor McCarthy were the goal scorers.
U16 Kerry Plate: Killarney Celtic B 1 Park C 3
Our U16 B’s were out twice last week. They were 3-1 winners over Killarney Athletic B thanks to goals from Stephen McCarthy, James McAuliffe and Cian Casey, but they couldn’t repeat that performance against Park C. Ciaran Sheehan got our goal but a good Park team stayed in control.
U14 Premier: Killarney Celtic 3 Inter Kenmare 1
Killarney Celtic moved into 3rd place with a 3-1 win over Inter Kenmare and still have a game in hand on second placed Kingdom Boys. Josh Fleming, Ryan Kelliher and Michael Devlin were the Hoops scorers.
U14 Div One: Mastergeeha 3 KillarNey Celtic B 1
A brilliantly struck free kick by Gearoid Murphy provided Celtic’s goal, but it wasn’t enough for a win.

........................................................................................

U14 Div One: Killarney Athletic B 7 Killarney Celtic C 1
Alex scored a great goal but it was very much against the run of play.
U14 Kerry Cup: Killarney Celtic 5 Park B 3
A great game and a battling Park side deserve a lot of credit, but they couldn’t match a great team performance that included goals from Peter O’Sullivan (2), Ryan Kelliher (2), and Lee Downing.
U14 Kerry Cup: Inter Kenmare 5 Killarney Celtic B 0
No questions and no complaints; the lads gave it everything but it wasn’t enough against a very skilful Kenmare side.
U13 Cup: Killarney Celtic 9 Ballyhar 0
Killarney Celtic A took the last place in the 1/4 finals after a good win over Ballyhar. Ryan Kelliher was on fire from the start and hit a hat trick inside 13 minutes. Eanna Coleman, Peter O’Sullivan, Ian Darmody and Ryan O’Grady were also amongst the goalscorers.
U13 Div One: Killarney Celtic C 2 Park B 5
Conor Casey scored for us and Dylan McCarthy added a brilliant header to our score-sheet.
U12 Kerry Cup: Killarney Celtic 2 Inter Kenmare 2 (Celtic win 7-6 on penalties) Played on Tuesday, the game finished 2 all after extra time with Chris O’Leary and Emmet O’Shea netting for Celtic. Ryan O’Grady, Jack McCarthy, Dylan Doona, Tom Doyle, Jason Kerins, Neil O’Shea and Ruairi Doyle were all successful from the penalty spot for Celtic.
U12 Kerry Cup: Killarney Celtic 8 Killorglin 3
Celtic took full confidence from that win to get past Killorglin in the quarter final on Saturday. Niall McGillcuddy and Padraic Looney both scored 2 each with Jack McCarthy, Ryan O’Grady, Ruairi Doyle and Ian O’Connor all getting one each.
U12 Kerry Cup: Castleisland 7 Killarney Celtic B 2
The lads put in a huge effort but Castleisland’s A side were very strong and deserved winners.
