IT IS a big weekend on the national stage for the Killarney Athletic AFC U-12 soccer team as they host Johnstown FC from Navan, Co Meath, this Saturday, January 30, at Woodlawn, Killarney at 2pm.
The Killarney side are just one of 32 teams remaining in this prestigious National U12 Schoolboys FAI Cup.
Killarney Athletic have already played three rounds of the National Cup and enjoyed impressive victories in the following games.
On October 3, 2015, Killarney Athletic played Ballingarry, Co Limerick, away and won 5-2.
In the second round, on October 17, 2015, Killarney Athletic played Granagh, Co Limerick, at home and two goals from Conal Gallagher helped them to a 2 -1 victory.
In the third round, on November 21, Killarney Athletic hosted Moneypoint from Clare and won 2-1. Coilte Cronin scored the goal in normal time and Alex Hennigan netted the winner in the extra time period.
John Dineen and Martin Muldoon are in charge of this very talented group of young players. Johnstown are a very fancied side and will present a very formidable challenge. However home advantage is a huge advantage and Killarney Athletic would appreciate all the local support they can get. The game is set to go ahead at Killarney Athletic's Woodlawn venue but may be subject to change to another local venue depending on weather conditions and the state of the pitch.
Killarney Athletic squad: Sam Benson, Cillian Courtney, Sean Dineen, Conal Gallagher, Alex Hennigan, Matthew Horgan, Dara Looney, Mark Long, Cian Lynch, Stephen Moynihan, Teddy Muldoon, Karl McCarthy, David O’Donoghue, Hugh O’Malley, Se O’Meara.

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
