Spa maintained their 100% record in Division 1 of the County League last Saturday evening as they defeated Junior Premier champions Beaufort in Tullig. Mike McCarthy, Evan Cronin, Mike O’Donoghue and Ryan O’Carroll all impressed for the hosts and the result means that the Killarney club, who were only promoted this year, are still in first place.

Spa are closely followed by near neighbours Dr Crokes who had a narrow victory over Templenoe in Lewis Road, a late goal by substitute Jordan Kiely proving crucial in the end.

Legion also secured a crucial win at home to Kerins O’Rahilly’s as an impressive first half display helped them to a hard-fought one-point victory in Derreen. Lively forward Peter McCarthy scored the goal but it was Jamie O’Sullivan who really came up trumps for the home team as he kicked the winner late on. Stand-in goalkeeper Colm ó Cuív also caught the eye for Legion, who are now on four points in seventh.

Rathmore defeated Dingle by six points in Rathbeg and the West Kerry club are now rooted to the bottom of the table with zero points from their opening four games.

Down in Division 2, Intermediate champs Kilcummin showed no signs of a hangover as they beat Ardfert in Ardfert by 2-15 to 2-11. Kilcummin were missing seven of their starting team from the final but goals in each half from the ever-reliable Shane McSweeney propelled them to another important win.

Glenflesk, meanwhile, suffered a disappointing defeat at home to Austin Stacks. Castleisland are currently out in front in the second tier with eight points from their opening four games.

In Division 3, Listry came out on top of their feisty clash with Dr Crokes B with five points to spare. It was their first win of the season and they now find themselves in eighth place on three points. Crokes’ second team are currently in third, three points behind leaders Annascaul who have won all of their games so far.

Gneeveguilla lead the way in Division 4 following their comprehensive victory over Ballylongford while Firies and Fossa, who defeated Skellig Rangers and Renard respectively, are in a four-way tie for second with Castlegregory and Tarbert.

There’s no language barrier when it comes to dancing – which is why one local group is organising classes to unite communities.

KASI, the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre, has teamed up with dance instructor John Moriarty to teach both Ukrainians and multiple cultures living in Kerry Irish set dancing steps from next week.

The first class will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting next week (September 27) at St Mary’s Parish Hall at 6.30pm and all are welcome to join.

The idea is to help Ukrainians living in Killarney and Kerry to come and have fun and get to know locals better, KASI coordinator, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“We have a women’s group for all ages where we do crochet, sewing and art and crafts, where they can talk which is good. I had the music on and they were dancing. I asked if they would like to do dancing classes so I organised it with John Moriarty who is well known in Killarney.”

She added that the women are very excited to learn set dancing and get to know other people from the area.

“Sometimes when you meet new people the language can be a barrier and when you’re dancing everybody is moving. He will open it to everyone so there’ll be integration, it’s fun as well. They are all very excited.”

The rising cost of fuel is already having a negative effect on charity events with some limiting numbers.

On October 9, the annual Multiple Sclerosis South Kerryv Walk takes place over the Old Kenmare Road.

First run in 2002, this year’s event will celebrate 20 years since its foundation but two years were lost as a result of the pandemic.

This year’s walk will be limited to 150 people – three coach loads – so event organisers can cut back on running costs.

It will only be possible to participate in this year’s event if walkers pre-register.

“Walkers must raise at least €40 to make it worthwhile,” organiser John O’Shea told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Spaces are limited, 150 people equals three coaches and we need smaller coaches to get into the start of the Old Kenmare Road as that is just a bog road. We have limited numbers for cost and operational reasons.”

Mr O’Shea thanked event sponsors O’Callaghan Coaches and The Gleneagle Hotel for their support of the event.

Registration forms can be obtained by calling John on 087 2348824.
