Five-star Celtic remain unbeaten, Blues slip up again

Published

A

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.

Lee Strand was recognised once again for their exceptional performance and commitment to sustainability with Gold Membership at the Origin Green 2022 awards.

Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets.

“We are delighted Lee Strand is recognised once again with the prestigious Origin Green Gold Membership for our commitment to sustainability,” Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

“In Lee Strand environmental management and sustainability are key elements of our business model, from launching 100% renewable cartons, to reducing water usage and energy efficiency. This is a great achievement by our sustainability team who are continually striving for higher levels of environmental excellence. We would also like to thank Veronica Kennelly from the Munster Technological University who assisted Lee Strand in the development of our Origin Green plan.”

Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2022, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.

To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by their verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. Origin Green has established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that a real diversity of industry is reflected in the overall Gold Membership.
