Two Kerry Sides set to contest Munster Finals this weekend

Two Kerry Sides set to contest Munster Finals this weekend


It’s a big weekend for two Kerry Ladies football clubs as they
bid for Provincial glory on Saturday. Southern Gaels last weekend
lifted the Munster “B” title beating Ballymacarby of Waterford
1-15 to 3-6. Connie O’Connor’s side looked ring rusty after their
five week lay off since winning the County championship back in
early September. Luckily for them Sarah O’connor brought her scoring
boots to Donoghamore (Co.Cork) as the Kerry captain hit 1-8 of
her side’s winning tally.

Kacey O’Driscoll was perhaps the most influential player on the
day when the Gaels were almost made pay for squandering several
scoring chances. Michelle O’Sullivan also chipped with four points
as Deirdre Fenton and Sinead Sheehan shored things up in defence
for the Kerry champions. Cork champions Inch Rovers will provide
a stern test for the South Kerry side as the East Cork outfit
who won their first Cork senior Club championship on Sunday have
quality players like Angela and Ciara Walshe and Amy O’Shea in
their ranks. Dual Cork player Mary O’Connor will remain sidelined
for now as she is still out with injury.

CastleIsland Desmonds will get proceedings underway at 12.30 in
Feenagh as they meet Clare side West Clare Gaels in the Junior
decider. The Kerry champions were helped in no small measure in
their semi-final win by Mary O Keefee who hit nine points for
her side as they easily accounted for Waterford outfit Ballyduff.
Marie Twomey, Lorraine Sacnlon, Aisling Leonard and Rachael Cronin
will all be key players on the day for a youthful looking side
who will need to step up a few notches as the Clare champions
were most impressive in qualifying for the final when seeing off
Ballingeary in Moyvane last weekend.

Laune Rangers crashed out of the Intermediate Munster club championship
at the same venue last Saturday as they went down 4-14 to 2-14
against another Clare side Coolaclare in the Intermediate semi-final.
