Sheehy queries decision process

Kerry senior selector Mikey Sheehy feels that the GAA need to take a look at how they deal with the postponement of inter-county matches in the future.

“It’s the supporters that I feel sorry for. They made the long trip north and to leave a decision so late in the day is not really fair on supporters or anyone involved for that matter. The GAA has to look at how they dealt with this to be honest. A decision could have been made earlier on this and I certainly think the way these types of situations are dealt with needs to be looked at by the GAA.”

Triple delight on the road

Every sports person knows how hard it is to win on the road so it was a great weekend for all three Kerry National League basketball teams as they all came home with the points.

In the Super League, Garvey’s Tralee Warriors defeated Eanna BC in Dublin 78-74, Keane’s SuperValu Killorglin defeated Panthers in Portlaoise 73-66 while Scotts Lakers were victorious in Sligo as they beat EJ All Stars 81-75. And to make it even sweeter for all three teams, they all now sit top of their respective Divisions.

United end Celtic dreams

Killarney Celtic’s ambitions of going further in this year’s FAI Junior Cup came to an end at Celtic Park on Sunday when they were outplayed by North End United (Wexford).

The difference between the teams was the second half performance of the Wexford side who were physically stronger. They created two superb chances in the first ten minutes for their striker Paul Murphy. The first signs of his true potential came in the second minute when Kyle Dempsey put an overhead kick behind the Killarney Celtic defence, to which Murphy raided in from the left and drove his shot wide of the back post.
