Two of the biggest sporting events taking place in Killarney this weekend will be broadcast live online to allow fans watch games they cannot attend due to crowd gathering restrictions.

Local side Dr Crokes contest the opening round of the Kerry Petroleum Club Championship at 7pm tonight (Friday). They face Templenoe in Fitzgerald Stadium but fans are not allowed attend the game because of COVID-19 restrictions that are currently in place.

The match will be streamed live, on kerrygaa.ie, in a pay-per-view scheme that has been set up by the Kerry County Board in an effort to allow fans watch games they are currently prohibited from attending.

Killarney Celtic’s FAI Junior Cup Quarter Final tie against Fairview Rangers will be broadcast live via the Killarney club’s Facebook page.

The match is scheduled to start at 4.30pm tomorrow (Saturday) and will feature commentary from Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan. The match itself, which is taking place at Celtic Park, kicks-off at 5pm.
