Duggan drives to Pirelli title

For a change on the May Bank Holiday weekend, Rob Duggan and Ger Conway were not racing up Molls Gap. The Pirelli Rally in Carlisle clashed with the Rally of the Lakes and Rob and Ger Conway were contracted to compete in the UK as part of the assault on the Junior British Rally Championship.

And the duo certainly made the trip worthwhile as they won the Junior section of the rally with a great drive over the 7 stages. The points gained keeps them top of the Championship.

Kilcummin and Horgan part company

Kilcummin Chairman Eugene McSweeney confirmed to Kerry's Eye this week that the East Kerry club had parted company with their senior football manager Martin Horgan.

Horgan, who was appointed to the position earlier this year, was informed of the decision on Monday evening.

"We met with Martin on Monday evening last and informed him of our decision to let him go. Things like this are never easy. Our main focus now is on the upcoming County Championship clash with Mid Kerry. We'll take our time now and try to make the right appointment and in the meantime we will try to manage as best we can."

McSweeney admitted that things were not going as well as the club had hoped for.

 "Our decision on the management situation was not based on results.

McElligott honoured to box for Ireland at the Worlds

Irish champion and Asdee native Moira McElligott becomes the first Kerry female to box at the AIBA Elite Women's World Championships which will be held this month in Astana, Kazakhstan from May 19th to 27th.

Moira is part of an 8-member Irish squad currently training for a week-long multi-nation training camp in Sheffield and she loves every minute of it.

"We are here in Sheffield in Team GB Olympic headquarters and the facilities are unbelievable," Moira told Kerry's Eye on Tuesday.

So what are the chances of Moira winning a medal at the Worlds?

"Realistically it's my first year at senior elite. The Olympics in Rio are not an option because there are only three weights for Women and 57kgs is not one of them.

Hannah is the latest girl to don the green

Mary Nolan from Lisselton was the first Kerry lady to pull on the green of the Republic of Ireland when she was capped at U18 level.

Since then, the county, and especially Listowel Celtic, has supplied many players to the women's International teams. In recent times, Savannah McCarthy started at all the underage areas and is now on the senior panel.

The latest girl to wear the Green Shirt is Killarney Celtic's Hannah O'Donoghue.

She has been selected for the squad that will take part in the UEFA U16 Development Tournament that takes place in Hungary from May 5th to 12th. The Irish will face Slovakia this Sunday, Bosnia on Tuesday, May 10th and Hungary on Thursday, May 12th.

Hannah is from the Black Valley outside Killarney and is the daughter of Christine Braunwarth and Sean O'Donoghue and has a sister Fay.

She spoke to Kerry's Eye as she prepared to meet up with the squad.
