Weekly Notes 1st of April

Rathmore 4-10 Dr Crokes 2-13

Senior County League Division 1 - Round 2

Played in Rathmore on Saturday 30th of March

We often hear it said that games were games of two halves. This was slightly different. Rathmore were well on top scoring wise in the first half. We were the better team for twenty minutes in the second half and had got our heads in front. Our opponents however came strong again as we entered the last eight minutes. They struck for two goals in as many minutes and went five points in front. We rallied again in the remaining minutes with two unanswered points but failed to get the goal that would have given us something out of the game.

Rathmore were well on top in the first half especially in the way they took their scores. On the other hand we were guilty of ten wides in this half and also struck the crossbar with a penalty. Many of our wides were due to poor shot selection. The hosts went into the dressing room at half time, 1-8 to 0-4 in front. They were in fact ten points clear at one stage in this half.

We were quick out of the blocks in the second half and scored 1-2 in the first five minutes to reduce the lead to two points. A minute later however Rathmore struck for a goal and a point to go six points clear. In the next ten minutes we had our most productive period in the game. We scored 1-4 without reply to edge a point clear. The teams exchanged points in the next few minutes but as we entered the last eight minutes of the game our opponents more or less won the game with two goals in two minutes and went five points clear. We didnt throw in the toel after this set back but attacked strongly and added two points to our tally but failed to get the goal that would have given us equality.

Both sides lined out short of some of their regulars and one would have to say that Rathmore deserved their victory because of their accuracy in the first half and for the two goals they scored when we had got our heads in front. Both sides would probably been happy with the newcomers they fielded and the bonding of players in the County League is very necessary

Under 16

A great start to the ladies U16 county league Div 4 as we travelled to Ballybunion to play Beale/Ballyduff.
The girls literally landed in school uniforms and had just a few minutes to spare before throw in at 6pm.This was a 13 aside match as the opposition had just 13 players.The game was well contested and the scores close throughout.Crokes defence was magnificent as they broke down several opposition attacks .We capitalised on some slick passing to notch up the scores and with the last Beale/Ballyduff attack a goal looked certain and defeat for Crokes but they pointed instead to leave Crokes ahead and winners on a scoreline of Dr Crokes 4-8 Beale Ballyduff 3-9.
Congratulations to all 17 of the panel. Keep the momentum going.

Kerry County Clean Up

The eighth annual County Clean Up will take place this year on Saturday, 13 April and a call has gone to individuals, clubs and communities across the county to take part and help make the county spick and span.

Last year, some 5,500 volunteers were out and about on the day with the support of Kerry County Council and KWD Recycling as well as local organisations like Kerry GAA, Kerry IFA and Kerry ICMSA.

Colm ‘The Gooch’ Cooper will again be lending a hand this year and is helping to promote the initiative.

The clean up day has grown in numbers year after year. 

As a county we are very reliant on our reputation for a clean and litter-free environment and everyone has a role to play. 

A record 5,500 volunteers took part in the Kerry County Clean Up in April 2018 which saw 8,000 bags of litter collected, the highest ever tally.

KWD Recycling will again provide clean up packs to clubs which register on and collection points will be designated around the county to ensure that all litter gathered is disposed of.
