Five-star Celtic remain unbeaten, Blues slip up again

Published

A Peter McCarthy hat-trick helped Killarney Celtic to an easy 5-1 victory away to Castleisland on Sunday and Eoghan Donnellan’s men are now 12 points clear at the top of the table. Danny Roche and Vukasin Ocic completed the scoring in another rout. If you take the Inter Kenmare walkovers out of the equation Celtic are averaging five goals a game. It has been relentless from them up to this point.

Dingle moved into second with a 4-2 win over Tralee Dynamos and they look like they’ll be staying there at this stage. They are two points ahead of Athletic with a game in hand. Fenit will be the opposition in both of their remaining fixtures and all they need is two points to secure a spot in the league final. You would put your house on them, to be honest.

We had another poor result on Sunday against Fenit and the air has really gone out of our tires by this stage. Goals from Shane Lynch and Tony Brosnan (penalty) had us 2-0 up at half time but we conceded within 20 seconds of the restart and ended up drawing 2-2. It’s the third time this season we’ve let a two-goal lead slip and we’ve dropped eight points in total from winning positions. It would be funny if it wasn’t so depressing.

The only positive is the fact that we’re going to have all of our league games played by May 20. We play Dynamos at home on Sunday in our 16th and final league fixture of the season. It’s a match that Dynamos really have to win if they want to stay up. They’re currently second bottom, one point behind Mastergeeha who also have a game in hand. Dynamos’ other remaining fixture is away to Celtic.

Geeha have Fenit home and away and Listowel at home but they’ll be hoping that neighbours Athletic and Celtic do them a favour and turn Dynamos over. If we do, Geeha will be safe regardless of what happens in their own games.

Celtic at home to Tralee Celtic in the quarter final of the Greyhound Bar KO Cup. The Tralee side drew their Premier B league final against Mitchels Avenue last Friday so the destination of the title is yet to be decided but both teams will play Premier A football next season.

The first round of the Reserve Cup also takes place this weekend and Cedar Galaxy have been handed a tough away fixture against Rattoo Rovers. Fellow Division 1A title contenders QPR are away to Mitchels Avenue, while Ballyhar Dynamos host Castlegregory in Murt Scott Park.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
