Keane named Minor manager

At Monday night's County Committee meeting Peter Keane was appointed Kerry Minor Team manager in succession to Jack O'Connor for a 2-year term.

The St Mary's man has vast experience at underage level from his involvement with various Kerry Development Squads and was a Kerry Minor Selector in 2012 and 2013 with Mickey Ned O'Sullivan. Currently trainer of Killarney Legion, he managed his native club to an All-Ireland Junior Club title in 2010/11 and was also previously involved with Beaufort whom he guided to a Junior County Final.

As a player, he won an All-Ireland Vocational Schools medal with Coláiste Iosagáin, won 4 County Under 21 Championship medals with South Kerry and at inter-county level, played Minor, Under 21 and Junior with Kerry.

Geaney Out

Kerry Senior footballer Paul Geaney is due to go for a back operation this week and in turn is set to miss Dingle's Senior County Championship campaign.

The talented forward played a leading role in Dingle's surprise win over Dr Crokes in the Senior Club Final last weekend. Speaking to Kerry's Eye, Dingle PRO Breandán MacGearailt confirmed Geaney's absence this weekend.

"Paul has to have an operation on his back this week. We're not sure how long his recuperation period is going to be but he will definitely be out for the South Kerry game this weekend."

It has also been confirmed that both Tommy Walsh and David Moran will be available for Kerins O'Rahillys' 3rd round Garvey's Super Valu Senior County Championship clash with East Kerry.

Fitz to finalise backroom team

Eamonn Fitzmaurice was confirmed as Kerry Senior Football manager for 2016 at a meeting of the Kerry County Board on Monday night. It was also confirmed that this would be a one-year extension only and that Fitzmaurice has yet to finalise his backroom team despite contrary reports.

It is still unclear what the future holds for Cian O'Neill (Team Trainer), Mikey Sheehy (Selector) and Diarmuid Murphy (Selector). It is expected that 8-time All-Ireland senior medal holder Sheehy will remain involved but as of yet Murphy's intentions are still unclear and sources close to the Dingle man have confirmed that the All Star keeper has yet to make a decision on his return.

New dynasty for Kilmoyley?

In the battle of the fellow parishioners last Sunday, it was Kilmoyley who came out on top.

They beat St Brendan's to take their 23rd title, one behind Ballyduff on the all-time leaderboard of senior hurling titles.

Kilmoyley started the campaign poorly, just edging Crotta O'Neill's. But their semi-final defeat of Ballyduff suggested they had timed their run particularly well. And although the Saints gave them an uncomfortable opening quarter, Kilmoyley settled to play expansive hurling and deservedly lift the Neilus Flynn Cup.

But what pleased their trainer John Meyler most was that it was achieved with a relatively young side.
