JOTTY HOLLY MEMO­RIAL MI­NOR CHAM­PI­ONSHIP Spon­sored by O’Con­nor’s Hard­ware & Farm Sup­plies DuaghDivi­sion 2 Fi­nalBal­ly­donoghue 6-13 Bal­ly­long­ford/As­dee 1-6 As the score­line sug­gests this was a rather one sided af­fair with Bal­ly­donoghue pretty much on top from the out­set,while Bally/As­dee had some good in­di­vid­ual per­form­ers they never re­ally clicked on the day.Bal­ly­donoghue opened the scor­ing with a point from Em­met Kelly to set them on their way and two min­utes later Man of the Match Jack Ken­nelly got in for the first of his three goals open­ing up an early lead. Liam Mul­vi­hill op­er­at­ing at full for­ward got Bally/ As­dee off the mark with a pointed free in the 9th minute and if he got a bet­ter sup­ply he may have caused them prob­lems. Bal­ly­donoghue con­tin­ued to push for­ward at every op­por­tu­nity and led by 17 points at half time, Bal­ly­donoghue 4-9 Bal­ly­long­ford/As­dee 0-4.

The sec­ond half con­tin­ued in a sim­i­lar fash­ion with Bal­ly­donoghue ex­tend­ing their lead through a Jack Ken­nelly goal in the sec­ond minute.Pa Car­mody in­ter­rupted the pro­ces­sion for Bally/As­dee when he drove a quickly taken free to the net.Bally/As­dee kept bat­tling to the fi­nal whis­tle but it was Bal­ly­donoghue who ran out de­serv­ing win­ners.North Kerry Board Chair­man Johnny Stack pre­sented the tro­phy to Cap­tain and Man of the Match Jack Ken­nelly.

NORTH KERRY SE­NIOR CHAM­PI­ONSHIP: All Roads will lead to Moy­vane on Sun­day next for the Fi­nal of the Bernard O’Cal­laghan Memo­rial Se­nior Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship which is spon­sored by McMunn’s Bar & Restau­rant in Bally­bunion. This year’s fi­nal sees reign­ing cham­pi­ons Bal­ly­donoghue take on St Se­nans in the Fi­nal at Con Bros­nan Park with a 2.30pm Throw In. Our near neigh­bours Bal­ly­donoghue are chas­ing a Three in a Row vic­tory on Sun­day some­thing that has not been done since 1979 when the great Beale team cap­tured their third ti­tle in a row. Sun­day’s game is a re­peat of the two teams that con­tested the 2016 Fi­nal in which Bal­ly­donoghue won their 8th ti­tle af­ter a lapse of 23years, so Sun­day is a big day for both Clubs as Bal­ly­donoghue chase 3 in a row and pos­si­bly their 10th Ti­tle while St Se­nan’s are in search of their 1st Ti­tle. So the Ea­mon O’ Donoghue Cup will be ei­ther mak­ing its way to Mount­coal or Lisselton on Sun­day evening next or who knows it might be a case of come back and we will do it all over again on Sun­day week to de­cide??.
