Kerry CCE
What a brilliant night in the INEC Killarney last night 21st November when over 400 artists took to the stage. A very entertaining and varied concert took place and those who did not attend were the losers as the whole night turned into a spectacular piece event. The show demonstrated the high standard of all the Musicians Singers and Dancers which included the “In Tune For Life” orchestra directed by Ned Kelly, world champion step dancer David Geaney, Thomas MacDonagh pipe band, Nora Butler, Tadhg Maher, 2015 Rose Of Tralee Elysha Brennan, Munster Rugby Supporters Choir, Numerous all-Ireland champions, Primary School students from Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary, and Laois and a host of others. MC on the night was Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh and he brought his own wit and humour to the nights proceedings. There certainly was one winner on the night and that was
Donal Walsh #livelife foundation. Well done to Elma and Finbar Walsh and everyone involved in this very emotional night. There is a new email address to contact the County Secretary Tadhg Creedon. Please contact him at secretarykerrycce@gmail.com

U18 Girls Div 1. Gneeveguilla 67 St Bridgets 36 (Played 22/11/15)
St Bridgets got off to flying start and led 15-12 at end of first quarter with some fine outside shooting. Gneeveguilla stepped up the pace in the second quarter and led 28-20 at half time. The last two quarters went Gneeveguilla’s way with game finishing 67-36. For St Bridgets Amy Galway hit 17 points from outside. For Gneeveguilla Shannon O’Leary played excellently injecting pace into their attack when needed. Sarah Murphy was excellent as always in defence and work rate. There was a big welcome for Roisin O’Leary from her Gneeveguilla team mates who returned to the court tonight after some time out. Top scorer for Gneeveguilla tonight was Shauna Guerin with 16 points.
Boys U-14 Div. 1: Gneeveguilla 46 K.C.Y.M.S. 36 (Played 16/11/2015)
This was a very good game of basketball. Gneeveguilla started off well and at the end of the first quarter the score was 17 points to 6. The second quarter was a very even affair with both teams scoring 14 points each. However Gneeveguilla pushed on in the third quarter finishing on a scoreline of 46 points to 36. Ronan Collins, Damien O’Halloran and Damien Cronin were very accurate in their shooting while Matt Reenstierna, Stephen O’Sullivan and Conor Murphy were very impressive for K.C.Y.M.S.
Boys U14 Div 3. Gneeveguilla 25-54 Tralee Tigers. (Played 22/11/2015)
This was an entertaining game of basketball. Tralee proved a little too strong on this occasion. Although Gneeveguilla worked very hard in defence the opposition were physically stronger and were very accurate in attack.

Basketball Club
U-16 Div 2 Boys
Rathmore Ravens 49- 45 St. Bridget’s
Rathmore got off to the best start in this opening quarter with some excellent teamwork and well taken scores by Sean Clifford (6) and Paul Cremin (4) leaving Rathmore ahead at the end of this quarter 14-8.
Rathmore kept on top in the next quarter with some fine running and passing movements keeping their noses ahead on the buzzer 24-18.
In the 3rd quarter Bridget’s dominated, breaking through the Rathmore defence, this was an exciting quarter with Bridget’s getting the final basket just before buzzer went,leaving only a basket between the sides. It was anyone’s game at this stage.
In a highly tense final quarter Rathmore came out fighting with scores in this quarter by Sean Clifford, Darragh Rahilly, Derry McCarthy, Anthony Darmody and Ian O’Connor.
This was a brilliant team display by the Ravens winning on a score of 49-45.

Well done to Spa GAA club, who won Club of the Year at the Kerry Ladies Football Awards later that night.

Drive in with a difference at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club
Each year in Killarney Golf and Fishing Club the new Captains and the new President mark the beginning of their year in Office, with a traditional drive in followed by a Mixed Competition. The event occurs this year on Sunday November 29th at 10.00am. However, this year’s drive in will be tinged with nostalgia as the mixed team competition will be held on the original course which opened in 1939. This course which was designed by Sir Guy Campbell and further developed by Lord Castlerosse was in use until 1972 so Golf on this occasion will be a trip down Memory lane for some Members. For other Members it will provide a chance to step back in the mists of time and have the opportunity to play the original course. Enda Murphy and his Green-keeping team are busy preparing for this most unusual event. Following the mixed team competition there will be a presentation of Prizes in the Club house at 3.30pm.

Killarney RFC
Our Seniors were due to play last weekend,however the game was postponed. Next Sunday the lads take on Carrick-on-Suir at home in Aghadoe, kicking off at 2:30pm in the league. Ger Moynihan’s men will be looking forward to getting back into match mode and hopefully there will be a strong home support for the lads. All welcome.
Our youths had a very busy weekend. Castleisland/Killarney U18’s had a fantastic home win at Aghadoe, against Thomond and ran out winners on a scoreline of 43-0. They travel to Listowel next Saturday in what should be a thriller of a match and Paul Sheahans charges will be hoping to continue their winning run.
KRFC U16 took on Killorglin RFC at Aghadoe on Saturday, but were beaten on a scoreline of 12-31 points to the visitors. Our lads showed some great skill and are clearly improving as the season develops.
KRFC U14’s played their round of the West Munster League on Sunday, taking on Tralee White. Our lads suffered their first defeat of the season, losing out to Tralee on a score of 5 - 19 for the home side. They have a well earned break next weekend before taking on Killorglin the following weekend.
Our minis travelled to Tralee RFC on Saturday morning in blustery and wet conditions to take part in the next round of the West Munster Blitz. With teams from Chorcha Dhuibhne and Listowel also present, the weather played it’s part by clearing up for the matches. This meant that the kids were able to enjoy the fast flowing rugby and our huge travelling support enjoyed some fantastic matches to boot. All out squads from U7 to U12 travelled and took on the three other clubs in some wonderful matches. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food in the clubhouse afterwards and we would like to thank Tralee RFC for their hospitality.
Next Saturday, the Christmas in Killarney Parade takes place at 5:45pm. KRFC Minis have been invited to take place in the march and we will meet at the Killarney RFC Banner at the Cathedral Car Park from 5@15pm. The parade then finishes at the Bank of Ireland Car Park. We would like as many minis as possible to take part and would also request that parents help us with stewarding on the parade. Details: Liam Murphy 087/4145662.

Killarney Valley AC
Thanks to all those who gave up some of their Sunday morning and Saturday evening last weekend to collect for Kerry Athletics and to those who donated on the way into the masses.
It’s a short job time-wise but Killarney Valley AC and all the other athletic clubs in Kerry benefit from this one day in the year. Many children in Kerry benefit from this day too as it helps all the clubs to stay open and active. We would be at a loss without the kindness and generosity of spirit of the people who volunteer.
The ‘Predict your time 5k’ in the Killarney Demesne on Sunday 6th December at 2pm has generated huge interest! The funds raised from this unique 5k will help to purchase a purpose built sports wheelchair for Ger Daly, one of the few wheelchair athletes in the Kingdom. Here are the details of the event.

Rowing Club
Provinces Indoor Rowing Championships
Last Saturday 21st November saw a fleet of cars leave Workmens Rowing Club for the above championships at the University of Limerick. Fifteen athletes along with coaches and family members were looking forward to a great day of Indoor Rowing. Safe to say…none were disappointed!
‘READY, ATTENTION, ROW’ was the starting cue and it didn’t take long for our rowers to once again showcase their determination and stamina. All those pieces on the erg machines , those hours in the gym, really paid off, with Killarney Workmen taking home more than their fair share of the medals.
Our Womens J15 Crew of Annie O’Donoghue, Ciara Brown, Leona Brown and Ciara Moynihan gave it their all, with Annie and Ciara M in the top 5 of the five minute race and a 2nd and 3rd place respectively in the 1000m race, with Ciara B and Leona not far behind. Lovely to see 2 of our club’s girls on the podium at once!! The unstoppable J16 Siobhán Burns meanwhile showed huge character in participating and coming a fraction of a second outside the medals, in the final of a blistering 500m sprint, despite being below form. Keep warm Siobhán!!!
Not to be outdone by the girls, the boys squad comprising J14 Seán Farndon, J15 Jacob Kunicki, and J18s Mickey O’Donoghue and Tom O’Leary were all super in their races. Our J16 competitor Dylan Bartlett set a new personal best by coming a very close 4th in the 2km race and a mere second outside the medals in his final of the 500m sprint. Adding to the boys’ successes was another J15, Ruadhán Mac Curtain coming home with 2 medals, silver in the 5 minute race, and gold in the thrilling 1000m final.
Our Senior Ladies and Men weren’t lacking in spirit with John O’Leary and Hugh Rudden enjoying their debut on the Indoor Arena- John with a memorable 4th in his race and Hugh taking home a silver in his very first race and subsequently barely missing a medal by coming a very close 4th in the heart-stopping 500m race. Deserving of our praise is of course our very own Lauren McCarthy setting a new personal best in her races. Well done Lauren! Last , but by no means least is Pauline O’Brien whose love of the silver and gold coins transferred beautifully to her achievements by beating off stiff competition and coming 1st with a gold medal in her 2km race and the 2nd for silver in a nail-biting 500m sprint.
We were also delighted to meet Senator Eamonn Coughlan at U.L. As a three times Olympian, a world record holder for the indoor mile for 18 years and Chairman of the High Performance Committee of the Irish Sports Council, he showed huge interest in all races as he was there recording a sports-related documentary on the day.
Our A.G.M. was held on Sunday 8th November. Thanks to everyone who attended. We recalled a great year of training and rowing and look forward to 2016 with anticipation of more thrilling races both on and off the water.
Training continues as usual at Reen Pier at the usual times. Your coaches will inform you of any changes.
Cupid Strikes!
A very special congratulations to our own Committee Member Mr. Mike Quirke, on his recent engagement to Miss Stephanie Quirke. You kept that well under wraps at the A.G.M.
We wish you both all the very best in the preparations for your nuptuals!

Killarney Athletic
Denny Premier A
Killarney Athletic 1-0 Camp
A goal 20 minutes into the first half from William Courtney insured Athletic took all 3 points from the game. We had plenty of chances to extend our lead but some inspired saves from the Camp Keeper Kept them in it and we had to survive some heavy pressure in the last 10 minutes to warrant our win.
Killarney Athletic 1-0 Ballyhar Dynamos
A game in which the home side probably deserved a share of the spoils, Our U15 squad continued their fine start to the season with another win. A solitary goal from Harry Potts ensured we came away with all 3 points. Fantastic display from Oliver Cremin in goals.
Killarney Athletic 2-1 Moneypoint (AET)
Our u12 squad welcomed Moneypoint from Clare to Woodlawn in this National Cup encounter. with the visitors snatching an early goal it wasn’t until late in the second half when Caoilte Cronin struck the equaliser. To extra time it went and 3 minutes to the final whistle up popped Alex Hennigan to grab the winner with a cracking goal. On a day when the weather was poor both sets of players were a credit to themselves and the sport.

Killarney Celtic
Comhgairdeas to the Sem on winning the O’Sullivan and Moran Cups this week and commiserations to Killarney Legion, who were just pipped in the County Football Final by a single point after extra-time; all three teams featured a host of Killarney Celtic players who did themselves and their team-mates proud.
40th Anniversary Commemorations
Our Club has a big birthday when it turns 40 next year. To help mark the occasion and to preserve our history for future Killarney Celtic generations, we will shortly be compiling a Digital Archive of club photos, news reports, memorabilia etc. That will require current and past members to rummage out whatever you might have in display cases, old biscuit tins and photo albums. There’s no better time than over the winter months for such flicking through history so please spread the word.
Best of Luck to the Kerry Oscar Traynor Team against West Cork this Saturday night at 7.30pm in Mounthawk Park.
Munster Junior Cup: Kerry Area Semi-Final: Killarney Celtic 1 Mitchels Avenue 0
Killarney Celtic and Mitchels served up a brilliant game of soccer last Sunday, with Celtic’s sharpness in possession and crisp passing just about giving them the edge over a Mitchels Avenue side who like to play fluid soccer on the ground and have plenty of sublime skill and great heart themselves. Munster Youths Cup: Killarney Celtic 4 Mastergeeha 2
Cathal O’Shea and a header by Stephen McCarthy put us in front but Mastergeeha hit back to make it 2-2 at half-time. Celtic dug deep in the second half, with Stephen McCarthy outstanding and young players like Jack Galvin and Jack Enright coming on and really stepping up to the mark. Cathal O’Shea’s second put us back in front and Cian Casey sealed it. Well done to both sides on serving up a great game in Mounthawk Park despite horrendous weather conditions.
U17 League: Killarney Celtic 2 Inter Kenmare 2
We were without some key players but showed great heart and resilience to come from behind twice to get a deserved share of the spoils. Eoin Moynihan and Pablo Martin got the vital scores, while Jordan Leahy and Gary Cronin were others to impress on the day.
U15 Div One: Iveragh 4 Killarney Celtic B 3
This was a cracking game and we can feel a little hard done by, losing out to an excellent Iveragh by the odd goal in seven. Adam Kissane and Jared Barton (2) were our goalscorers, while Tommy McGuire also had a great game.
U14 National Cup: Killarney Celtic 3 Killorglin 1
We had chances to finish it in normal time but a resilient Killorglin stuck with us all the way extra time, where Celtic managed to find an extra gear to close it out. Our goalscorers were Cian Dineen, Evan Looney, and the outstanding Niall McGillicuddy. Others to shine on the day were Christian Casey, Dylan Doona, Neil O’Shea, and Cian O’Leary.
U13 Div One: Killarney Celtic 4 Killarney Athletic 0
A superb team display. Ruairi Dorrian, Simon Coffey (2) and Erin Moloney got the goals while the whole panel, all sixteen players used on the day, gave it absolutely everything.
Congratulations to U14 player Cian O’Leary on making the Kerry Schoolboys/Schoolgirls Team of the Week.
