Killarney Athletic Abroad

Brendan Moloney booked in the last minute going down to a last minute strike to lose away to Bury and a dent in their playoff hopes.

Diarmuid O’Carroll’s crusaders lost 1 nil to Glentoran in the Irish Cup.



Killarney Athletic B 0 – 1 Ballyheigue. In the replay of the Dominos Pizza Kerry cup, Athletic were at home to division 2b leaders Ballyheigue in a game that Athletic should have won but unfortunately, it wasn’t to be Athletic’s day in their chances to reach another cup final in 3 years. With Ballyheigue set up defensively, Athletic created few chances and a sloppy deflection from a corner in the 60th minute ended up in the Athletic net. Not helped with injuries to JP, Damien and Alan, Athletic were forced into subs sooner than expected. Late chances for Joul, Chris and David were not to be and Ballyheigue advance to the quarter final. Best for Athletic Tommy Counihan and Shane Lyne.

Under 14

Killarney Athletic under 14’s lost 3-0 away to Tralee Dynamos. What could have been a super match was all but decided when home team scored twice in 1st 5 minutes after a terrible start by our lads. Both teams had lovely passages of play after, but periods of poor attitude by some Athletic players very evident. Tadhg Doolan involved in most things positive with super attitude shown by Seamus Gallagher, Harry Potts& David Moriarty on a tough day not helped by ourselves.
