There wasn’t any one player who im­pacted on pro­ceed­ings for a pro­longed pe­riod of play. Ste­fan Okun­bor in­ter­mit­tently was seen to good ef­fect for the win­ners while Niall Sheehy also kicked some good scores. How­ever, dur­ing the pe­riod in the game be­tween the 25th and 40th min­utes, when the even­tual out­come was ul­ti­mately de­cided, goal scorer David O’Cal­laghan made the most sig­nif­i­cant im­pact.


Prob­a­bly two, both in­volv­ing goals at op­po­site ends. Mark Buck­ley’s dis­al­lowed goal, and David O Cal­laghan’s sec­ond green flag fol­lowed in quick suc­ces­sion early in the sec­ond half. The ad­van­tage rule is hugely ben­e­fi­cial, but it can be dif­fi­cult to ad­ju­di­cate where the ad­van­tage ends. A Shan­non Rangers goal at that stage might have sparked a re­vival, but O’Cal­laghan’s sec­ond strike firmly put paid to any chance of that.


It’s been on­go­ing for some time, and, it was back on the agenda last week­end. Such has been the level of the Shan­non Rangers per­for­mances in suc­ces­sive sea­sons that join­ing with Feale Rangers is now, again, the sub­ject of opin­ion and de­bate. How­ever, given their dis­play against St Kier­ans last Sun­day Feale Rangers might feel, with some jus­ti­fi­ca­tion that they are ca­pa­ble of mak­ing an im­pact on their own.
