Our Prediction:

Dingle – Kerins O'Rahillys Match Prediction | 28-09-2019 11:45

Diarmuid OHerlihy and Ivan Parker netted the goals. They meet favourites and reigning champions Dr Crokes in Rd 2A. However the improvement of junior clubs such as Na Gaeil, St Pats and the addition of John Mitchels has turned them into a strong unit. The surprise packet of the Kerry SFC this season may be St Brendans, traditionally one of the weaker divisional outfits in the senior grade. They defeated Kilcummin more convincingly than the 2-17 to 2-14 scoreline would suggest, and did so without Kerry midfielder Jack Barry, who was doing exams.

This was our final score of the half, with Firies replying with two further points to leave the teams level at half-time, 1-1 to 0-4. Firies went into an early two point lead before Gearid Sayers registered our first score after 12 minutes. Three minutes later we scored a goal with a fisted effort from Edward Duggan, following a pass from John Hegarty.

Eugene McGrath broke the deadlock and restored our lead with a fine drive from a free against the wind. On the resumption Glenflesk had the advantage of a strong gale force wind which seemed to increase as the game went on and by the 40th minute had reduced the deficit by one point, 2-5 to 1-7 with 3 well taken points and a penalty which resulted in a goal.

Attention now turns to the senior county championship and our first round game vs Feale Rangers which will be played in Listowel on Sat 1st Sept @ 17.30 hopes will be high after last years run to the semi final but there are no easy games at any stage and a trip North is always a difficult one no doubt training will have an extra edge to it over the next few weeks as players try to earn a starting spot.

We thank them for all their hard work on behalf of the children of Oakpark over the past few years. We very much regret the departure of Paddy Joyce, Bridie O'Connell, Jimmy Adams, Margaret O'Donoghue and Tom Collins. At the same time we welcome Eileen Moriarty, Mary Ellen Slattery, Bridget O'Connell and Donal Daly to our committee and we hope that they'll enjoy many years with us.

FRANCIS Beaufort must have been in Fenit when he invented his scale back in the 18th century, as again for the third week running, the dinghy Winter Woollies series was cancelled due to heavy winds. However the dinghy sailors will persist and line up again next Sunday at 10am, to finish off the season with a few frostbites over the next four Sundays. Between rain, high winds and clocks going back winter seems to have taken over and sunny skies and warm winds are but a distant pleasurable memory.

We were slow to start and Glenflesk led against the wind after 2 minutes. With the advantage of a strong breeze our best football was played in the next 15 minutes when a mighty pass from John O'Connor set up Declan Quill who clinically dispatched a piledriver to the left corner off the net. Points by John O'Connor (free) in the 12th minute and another from play by Johno in the 14th minute had the sides level at 3 points each. And to follow in the 20th minute C J Sheehy pulled on a dropping ball with the goalkeeper and had goal number two. A further point from play by Declan Quill left us ahead at half-time by 2-5 to Glenflesk's 0-4. A point from play by Haulie Kerins increased our lead. But Declan Quill had our opening score from play in the 8th minute.

In the middle eight, Con Barret, John C OConnor and Gavin OBrien were dominant with Gavin in particular fielding some great ball and making runs from deep; he was not always rewarded from these runs but the frees were being racked up by Jack and with some great passing and score taking from Barry John we had forged ahead by 5, 0-8 to 0-03 with ten minutes remaining in the first half. Dingle were sticking to the task and scores from Matthew Flaherty and Mikey Geaney had them within two points with four minutes left to play however, Barry John and Tommy both from play had the final say and we lead by four at the break, 0-10 to 0-06.
