Joy­ous re­turn for Coolkenno

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

THE Coolkenno foot­ballers were crowned Roinn II win­ners for 2019 with­out kicking a ball in anger in the fi­nal round of matches.

Al­ready-relegated Bal­li­na­cor didn’t travel to play the Car­low bor­der side on Satur­day evening in­stead award­ing a walkover leav­ing them­selves and Kil­coole as the pro­moted pair to Di­vi­sion 1A.

Kil­coole have se­cured back-to­back pro­mo­tions hav­ing de­feated Balt­in­glass in the Di­vi­sion 3 league fi­nal in 2018 ahead of them win­ning the Ju­nior ‘A’ cham­pi­onship.

Top spot had been se­cured in Di­vi­sion 2 the pre­vi­ous week­end so the fi­nal two points on of­fer for Coolkenno were largely im­ma­te­rial.

The Tim­mins Cup was pre­sented to cap­tain Don Jack­man by Rose Tim­mins whose hus­band spon­sored the cup for Wick­low GAA 45 years ago.

In­ter­est­ingly, the last time Coolkenno were vic­to­ri­ous in Roinn II (in 2013) they also won the In­ter­me­di­ate cham­pi­onship so no doubt they will be hop­ing that his­tory re­peats it­self. At the other end of the Di­vi­sion 2 league it is rel­e­ga­tion for Trevord Doyle’s Bal­li­na­cor and Rath­new af­ter a dif­fi­cult league cam­paign for both sides.
