THE Killarney Celtic club has been chosen as Aviva’s Performance of the Round from Round Six of the FAI Junior Cup. The FAI Junior Cup sponsors Aviva chose Killarney Celtic following their impressive 3-2 victory over last season’s quarter-finalists, Newmarket Celtic.

The Kerry side went into the game as underdogs with Newmarket the dominant side in Clare and were unlucky to be knocked out of the FAI Junior Cup by Janesboro at the quarter-final stage last year.

Being the away side did not faze Killarney and Eoghan Donnellan’s side responded to going a goal down in Clare with a Wayne Sparling double to give them a half time lead. However they were pegged back on the hour mark but as the game was heading for extra time Killarney’s Chris O’Reilly popped up to nod his side into the last 16.

This was the standout performance in Round Six of the FAI Junior Cup and to mark this Killarney Celtic manager Eoghan Donnellan was presented with the Aviva Performance of the Round trophy at the FAI Junior Cup 7th Round draw in Dublin.

Mark Russell, sponsorship manager, Aviva Insurance, said: “Killarney’s performance in Round Six is what the FAI Junior Cup is all about. Any team can travel anywhere in the country and beat any side.

“It’s an extremely competitive tournament and that can be seen in the last 16 and quarter-finalists every year, there’s always a new list of teams looking to live the dream of playing in the Final at the Aviva Stadium. We at Aviva are delighted to award Killarney Celtic the Performance of the Round for Round Six of the FAI Junior Cup.”

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
