County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 10.

Templenoe 2-06, John Mitchels 0-07.

Templenoe’s place in Division 2 of the County league is secure for another year, after the hosts overcame John Mitchels by five points last Saturday evening.

The match was played in miserable weather conditions and it was John Mitchels who had the aid of a strong wind for the first half. John Rice opened the scoring to draw first blood for the hosts five minutes in, following good build up play. Niall Sheehy countered with a white flag for the visitors, before Stephen O’Sullivan cut loose at the other end fisting a ball across the square that was finished to the net by Josh Crowley Holland for Templenoe’s first goal. Mitchels wasted quite a few chances in the first half, but Shane O’Connor did pull one back for them to make the score 1-01 to 0-02 after nine minutes of play. Soon after Stephen O’Sullivan restored Templenoe’s lead to three points, before John Mitchels hit five unanswered points courtesy of Stephen Bowler, Mikey Kelliher (f), Cian Holden, Niall Sheehy (f) and Shane O’Connor to give John Mitchels a two points cushion going in at the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-02 John Mitchels 0-07.

Josh Crowley Holland pointed for Templenoe immediately after the restart, but there was to be no further score for the remainder of the third quarter. John Mitchels had the more of the possession and were winning most of the breaks, but crucially they were failing to make it count on the scoreboard. A break away attack for Templenoe in the 48th minute saw Josh Crowley Holland combine with Colin Crowley, with the latter fouled inside the square and penalty was awarded. Brian Crowley stepped up and slotted the ball home. From there on the result was never in doubt. Further scores were added by Mark Casey, Colin Crowley (f) and Stephen O’Sullivan (f) for the hosts, to comfortably close out the game.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-06, John Mitchels 0-07.

Well done to all the players and management on retaining our Division 2 status despite a rocky start, losing our first three matches and our player numbers were tight for many of the games also. There remains one more county league game to be played away to Laune Rangers, before attention turns to the club championship.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 9.

Castleisland Desmonds 2-07, Templenoe 1-10.

A pointed free from Colin Crowley shortly before the referee blew for full time secured a share of the spoils for Templenoe away to Division 1 bound Castleisland Desmonds last Saturday evening. Fair to say the visitors gutsy performance over the hour of football deserved no less. This result also puts Templenoe in with a good chance of staying up in Division 2 with just two more county league games remaining

Templenoe had the advantage of a strong breeze for the first half and they used it excellently in the first quarter to race into 0-00 to 1-06 lead by the 14th minute. Stephen O’Sullivan opened the scoring with a free, then the two Crowley brothers Brian and Colin (f) both landed long distance efforts to put Templenoe three points to the good. A minute later came Templenoe’s goal in a move that stemmed from a Colin Crowley sideline, the ball broke to Jason O’Shea who was starting his first competitive game for the Templenoe seniors, his shot hit the base of the post. Templenoe quickly recycled and Stephen O’Sullivan showed great skill to finish  the ball to the net after been put through on goal. The visitors consolidated their position with further scores from Brian Crowley, Stephen O’Sullivan and Josh Crowley Holland to complete the dream opening quarter. Adam Donoghue opened Castleisland Desmonds account with a badly need score in the 15th minute. Colin Crowley did nail another free for Templenoe shortly after, but Castleisland were now starting to come more into the game. Luke Lyons added a second point for the hosts and then came Desmonds first goal following a patient build up which ended with Cian W O’Connor dispatching the ball to the net. Two converted frees from Adam O’Donoghue reduced the margin to just three point ahead of the interval.


Half Time Score: Castleisland Desmonds 1-04, Templenoe 1-07.


It was all to play for, the breeze did die down a bit for the second half, but the question was could the visitors hold out against the likely fightback from the hosts. The Desmonds hit a wide and a short just after the restart, before Colin Crowley put over another placed ball for Templenoe. Then there was goal mouth action at both ends with Desmonds Adam O’Donoghue forcing a save from Mark Looney, while Templenoe’s Stephen O’Sullivan saw his effort for a second goal come off the upright. The Desmonds made another burst at goal with substitute Pat Fitzgerald attempting a pile driver, his shot was blocked, but the referee deemed the block illegal and a penalty resulted. Adam O’Donoghue made no mistake with the spot kick to make the score 2-04 to 1-08 after 41 minutes of action. Credit to Templenoe, similar to the Beaufort game the previous week they answered the setback with a score of their own immediately after with Colin Crowley slotting over another free. However, the game did look like it might slip from Templenoe’s grasp when points from Adam O’Donoghue and Maurice Hickey levelled the scores by the 52nd minute. In the ensuing passages of play, Templenoe (2) and Castleisland (1) both had wides, before Luke Brosnan put the Desmonds in the ascendancy for the first time to make for an exciting finish. There was time for one last Templenoe attack and they used the ball well to draw a foul from the Desmonds defence for the unerring Colin Crowley to grab the equalizer.

Final Score: Castleisland Desmonds 2-07, Templenoe 1-10.


Castleisland Desmonds: Adam O’Donoghue 1-03 (1-00p) (2f), Cian W O’Connor 1-00, Luke Lyons 0-01, Maurice Hickey 0-01, Luke Brosnan 0-01, Adam Donoghue 0-01

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 8.

Templenoe 1-11, Beaufort 1-09.

Templenoe earned another two valuable county league points at home against Beaufort on a damp evening in round 8 of the competition. Ironically, it was the hosts first win on home soil in this year’s county league. Templenoe had to do it the hard way though, trailing by five with eleven minutes of normal time remaining, but credit to the players they kept battling, and came good when it mattered most to defy the odds.

Beaufort started the brighter with Sean O’Brien and Liam Carey putting them two points to the good inside the opening five minutes. Beaufort dominated the exchanges in the first quarter but failed to make it count on the scoreboard, hitting at least five wides in this spell. At the other end, Templenoe had chances too, but their efforts were either dropping short or going wide. Liam Carey with a point from play and a point from a mark extended the visitors lead to four points, before Templenoe finally raised their first white flag of the evening through Sean Sheehan twenty minutes in. Further points immediately followed with Stephen O’Sullivan and Aidan Crowley both landing frees to make it 0-03 to 0-04 after twenty-three minutes. Beaufort upped the ante again to pull three points clear courtesy of Kieran Dennehy and Ronan Murphy, but Templenoe were keeping with them and responded with Aidan Crowley slotting over his second free.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-04, Beaufort 0-06.

Shortly after the restart, Colin Crowley brought Templenoe back to within a point of the visitors kicking a lovely long range score. The game then entered another period of stalemate, but this time it was mostly Templenoe that were guilty of squandering chances up front. Beaufort’s Fergal Hallissey made no such mistakes with two converted frees in the 41st and 44th minutes. Stephen O’Sullivan eventually ended Templenoe scoring drought with a free to reduce the margin back to two points mid-way through the second half. Soon after the match took a dramatic turn, when Beaufort were awarded a penalty after Sean O’Brien was adjudged to have been fouled. Centre forward Danny Healy dispatched the spot kick with aplomb to make it 0-6 to 1-08. The hosts reply was imminent with Sean Sheehan using his experience well to calmly pop over a point and keep the home side in contention. Stephen O’Sullivan added another free, but then Beaufort substitute Jonathan Kissane looked to have sealed Templenoe faith with point to make it 0-08 to 1-09 with only five minutes of normal time left to play. Then came the fight back, with Kieran McCarthy getting forward to split the posts, before a great team move started by Stephen O’Sullivan ended with a fist pass across the square with Josh Crowley Holland rising highest to palm the ball to the net. Suddenly the score was 1-09 apiece. Templenoe sensed blood and less than a minute later Brian Crowley put the hosts in front for the first time after 57 minutes of play. Beaufort came close to equalizing, but it just wasn’t their night, Aidan Crowley secured the win with the last kick of the game from a placed ball.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-11, Beaufort 1-09.


Templenoe: Stephen O’Sullivan 0-03 (3f), Aidan Crowley 0-03 (3f), Josh Crowley Holland 1-00, Sean Sheehan 0-02, Colin Crowley 0-01, Kieran McCarthy 0-01, Brian Crowley 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 7.

Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-06, Templenoe 0-17.

A very good all round team performance saw Templenoe deservingly come away from Glenbeigh with two valuable County League points last Sunday.

Templenoe had wind advantage for the first half on a fine afternoon for football with the visitors playing excellently in the opening period, lording it midfield and leading by 0-00 to 0-06 after just eight minutes of play. Mark Looney converted a 45 after a Stephen O’Sullivan shot at goal was deflected out over the end line. Then Stephen O’Sullivan himself planted two frees over the bar either side of a Daniel Crowley white flag, before a brace of points from the in form Colin Crowley completed the perfect start. It took 14 minutes for Glenbeigh/Glencar to register their first score, which came courtesy of a Caoilim Teahan effort. But the home side were now starting to get their hands on more possession and they followed this up with three unanswered points from Tommy Cahill (f), Darren O’Sullivan (f) and Dara Casey to reduce the margin to just two points by the 23rd minute. However, Templenoe regrouped quickly with Stephen O’Sullivan firing over two points from play to keep the sides at arm’s length, to which Glenbeigh/Glencar responded with Daniel Griffin and Adrian O’Connor splitting the posts.

Half Time Score: Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-06, Templenoe 0-08.

With only two points between the sides and with the second half to play, it was anyone’s game. Templenoe started the brighter again after the restart with Brian Crowley and Daniel Crowley restoring their lead to four points. The game was then blown wide open when a Glenbeigh/Glencar free came off the top of the post, Tommy Cahill reacted quickest and was fouled to earn the hosts a penalty. Cahill calmly dispatched the spot kick and suddenly there was only a point between the sides after 36 minutes. Little did anyone think especially with the introduction of Gavan O’Grady minutes later, that this would be Glenbeigh/Glencar’s last score of the game. Good defending, positioning, tracking, ball retention combined with composed and patient play up front all formed the basis for Templenoe to run out eight points winners. The visitors shooting was very good throughout only hitting 4 wides compared to 10 for Glenbeigh/Glencar. Between the 44th minute and the final whistle Templenoe hit seven points without reply from Colin Crowley (3), Adrian Crowley (3) (2f) and Daniel Crowley. Glenbeigh’s cause was not helped when they lost Liam Roche to a black card in the 54th minute, but there was no doubting that Templenoe were full value for their win. With four more rounds of the county league still to be played, this result and performance was a timely boost to Templenoe’s hopes of survival in Division 2.

Final Score: Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-06, Templenoe 0-17.


Glenbeigh/Glencar: Tommy Cahill 1-01 (1p) (1f), Adrian O’Connor 0-01, Dara Casey 0-01, Caoilim Teahan 0-01, Darren O’Sullivan 0-01 (1f), Daniel Griffin 0-01.

Templenoe: Colin Crowley 0-05, Stephen O’Sullivan 0-04 (2f), Adrian Crowley 0-03 (2f), Daniel Crowley 0-03, Mark Looney 0-01 (1 45), Brian Crowley 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 6.

Templenoe 0-11, Kilcummin 2-13.

Templenoe faced table toppers Kilcummin at home in round 6 of the County League last Saturday evening. Two second half goals set the visitors on their way to maintain their 100% record, with six wins out of six. Credit to Jack O’Connor and his selectors though, they did release two of our County players Gavin Crowley and Killian Spillane for this fixture

The game was played on a glorious evening with a big enough crowd in attendance. Stephen O’Sullivan opened the scoring with a pointed free for the hosts, but Kilicummin immediately responded with Paul O’Shea causing problems for the Templenoe defence early on. O’Shea who was deployed at full forward hit three points in the first five minutes forcing Templenoe to adapt a sweeper system to curve his influence. In between, Templenoe’s Stephen O’Sullivan added a second free. There wasn’t much between the sides in the first half, but Kilcummin did look the more dangerous going forward. Noel Duggan and Killian Spillane exchanged frees mid-way through the first half, before Dara O’Callaghan and a fine score from Kevin McCarthy put the visitors three points clear. Killian Spillane then showed his class with wonderful score from a difficult angle just before the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-04, Kilcummin 0-06.

Kevin McCarthy and Killian Spillane traded scores again just after the restart. Then came the game’s first goal from Kilcummin with Philip O’Leary finishing perfectly after he was played through by Kevin McCarthy. Noel Duggan instantly followed this up for the East Kerry side with a point from play, to make the score 0-05 to 1-08 after 34 minutes of action. Aidan Crowley responded with a well taken score for the hosts. Templenoe needed more however and they nearly did so when a smart team move ended with Colin Crowley getting inside the defence from the right corner only to see his effort go agonisingly across the face of the goal. A green flag for the hosts at that stage would have reduced the margin to two points. Kilcummin heeded the warning and launched a high ball into their danger man Paul O’Shea, who was adjudged to have been fouled in the square with the referee awarding a penalty. O’Shea expertly converted the spot kick to extend their lead to eight points and there really was no way back for Templenoe from there. The hosts did have more goal scoring opportunities later on, but it was just not to be on the night. Kevin McCarthy added further scores to his tally, before Mark O’Shea chipped in with a brace of points of his own. While Killian Spillane kept the scoreboard ticking over for Templenoe with a few placed balls and a mark in between. The game ended with Shane McSweeney and Mark Looney from a 45 exchanging scores before the referee blew for full time.

Final Score: Templenoe 0-11, Kilcummin 2-13


Templenoe: Killian Spillane 0-07 (5f) (1m), Stephen O’Sullivan 0-02 (2f), Aidan Crowley 0-01, Mark Looney 0-01 (1 45).

Division 2, County Senior Football League, Round 5.

Listry 1-06, Templenoe 1-06.

Templenoe and Listry shared the spoils after a disappointing encounter in Listry last Sunday. All in all a draw was probably a fair result, with both sides equally guilty of poor shooting and coughing up possession throughout which made for a low scoring contest.

The game was played in dampest conditions and the home side went into an early lead with the opening score from a Joe Clifford free. Templenoe responded quickly with Brian Crowley venturing up the field to cancel out his effort. However, then Listry started to get on top, putting Templenoe on the back foot. A long range free broke kindly for the Listry corner forward Sean O’Sullivan who was at the right place at the right time to pull on the ball to the net. The hosts consolidated their position with two points on the trot from Gearoid Murphy and Aaron O’Shea to make the score 1-03 to 0-01 after 12 minutes of play. To compound matters for the visitors, Templenoe then lost John Rice to injury. He was replaced by Joseph Sheehan, who in fairness acquitted himself well. Scores were hard to come by in the second quarter, Colin Crowley earned a mark and duly obliged with his effort in the 21st minute, before Danny Cahalane pointed from an acute angle to reduce the deficit to a goal just before the interval.

Half Time Score: Listry 1-03, Templenoe 0-03.

The second half continued in the same vein as the first half with scores few and at times far between. But Templenoe were starting to grow in confidence when Stephen O’Sullivan converted a free to leave just the two points in it with 37 minutes played. Micheal Keane replied with Listry’s first score in 27 minutes. Very soon after the game was put in the melting pot with Stephen O’Sullivan finding the net for Templenoe, after a superb ball into him from Josh Crowley Holland. The sides were now tied at 1-04 apiece. The next ten minutes saw both sides exchanging a few wides and turnovers. Then in the 50th minute a Sean Lehane free edged the hosts back in front, but Templenoe’s response was instant with Aidan Crowley although under pressure managed to swing his shot over the bar. More wides followed from both teams, before a pointed free from Colin Crowley put Templenoe in front for the first time with only two minutes of normal time remaining. However, there was six minutes of injury time to be played and Listry’s John Foley showed nerves of steel to fire over the equalizer just ahead of the final whistle.

Final Score: Listry 1-06, Templenoe 1-06.


Listry: Sean O’Sullivan 1-00, Joe Clifford 0-01 (1f), Gearoid Murphy 0-01, Aaron O’Shea 0-01, Micheal Keane 0-01, Sean Lehane 0-01 (1f), John Foley 0-1.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 4.

Annascaul 0-14, Templenoe 3-10.

Templenoe recorded their first win in the County league following an entertaining encounter away to Annascaul last Saturday evening. With both teams losing their opening three matches in the league, this game was seen by many as critical, in the survival stakes. Much remains to be done of course, but Templenoe will take encouragement from this result. 

Annascaul had the wind to their backs for the first half and struck the opening score of the game courtesy of James Crean straight from throw in, to put them in front for the first and only time in this contest. Then two minutes later, Templenoe’s Colin Crowley found himself one on one with the keeper and he made no mistake with the finish for the visitors first goal. Buoyed by this, Templenoe put together some great passages of play to hit five unanswered points with Brian Crowley, Josh Crowley Holland, Danny Cahalane, Aidan Crowley and Stephen O’Sullivan all finding the range to make it 0-01 to 1-05, after 13 minutes of play. Credit must also go the Templenoe defence with Kieran O’Neill and company not putting a foot wrong in this period and answering every question that was asked of them. Jason Hickson converted a free to pull one back for the home side, but then Templenoe hit them with another sucker  punch, when Aidan Crowley combined with Stephen O’Sullivan who fisted home from close range for their second goal. Annascaul were now nine points adrift, but they did rally somewhat before the break to fire over three points on the trot through Jack Farrell (2) and David O’Brien.

Half Time Score: Annascaul 0-05, Templenoe 2-05.

Annascaul continued where they left off and a comeback looked possible when the impressive James Crean (2) and Killian Falvey reduced the margin to just three points, after 36 minutes of play. Templenoe had now gone seventeen minutes without scoring, before Brian Crowley helped settle the nerves with a much needed point for the visitors. Colin Crowley added another, but Annascaul remained determined and responded with two more scores from James Scanlon and James Crean. At times in the second half, Templenoe were sloppy with their possession and matters got worse when Stephen O’Sullivan was dismissed for a second yellow card offence. However, when they needed to most, Templenoe were able to dig deep and tag on scores. Sean Sheehan, Brian Crowley and Aidan Crowley (free) helped steady the ship for the visitors to put them ahead 0-10 to 2-10 by the 50th minute. Annascaul fought back though with two scores of their own from David O’Brien and James Hanifan, before the game was then finally put out of reach when Josh Crowley Holland played the ball through for Daniel Crowley to bag the visitors third goal. The hosts threw everything at Templenoe in the remaining minutes, but the Templenoe defence stood tall and in the end, Annascaul had to settle for two late points from Jason Hickson and Killian Falvey.

Final Score: Annascaul 0-14, Templenoe 3-10.


Annascaul: James Crean 0-04, Jason Hickson 0-02 (2f), Jack Farrell 0-02, David O’Brien 0-02, Killian Falvey 0-02, James Scanlon 0-01, James Hanifan 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 3.

Templenoe 2-12, Milltown/Castlemaine 1-16.

Templenoe welcomed the visit of Milltown/Castlemaine for Round 3 of the County League last Saturday evening. Boasted by the availability for this fixture of County players Gavin Crowley and Killian Spillane, hopes were high that the hosts would bag their first County leagues points of the season. However it was not to be, but the game did go down to the wire and in the end a late point from Milltown/Castlemaine’s Dylan O’Neill edged the contest to maintain the visitors 100% record in the league.

The match was played on a dry but chilly evening with Milltown/Castlemaine having the aid of the breeze for the first half.  Cian O’Connor and Killian Spillane traded points to open the scoring, before the first goal of the game from Templenoe’s Daniel Crowley who palmed the ball to the net, following good build up play from Danny Cahalane and Stephen O’Sullivan. Templenoe then made it two goals in as many minutes, with Danny Cahalane and Stephen O’Sullivan once again involved, with the latter fisting to the net after a high ball in from the former. Danny Cahalane followed this up with a point of his own to make the score 2-02 to 0-01 and the hosts were off to flyer. Soon after a black card for Templenoe’s Colin Crowley followed by pointed free from Eanna O’Connor for the first of his 11 points tally, gave hope to the visitors. John Rice replied with a fine long ranged effort, before a brace of points from Eanna O’Connor (2) and Cathal Moriarty reduced the margin to four points. Then a brilliant Cathal Moriarty goal after he showed great skill to get inside the Templenoe defence blew the game wide open. Killian Spillane though continued to be a threat up front and he had two points either side of Moriarty’s goal. It was very much ebb and flow coming up to the break with Cathal Moriarty and Eanna O’Connor having their scores cancelled out by Sean Sheehan and Stephen O’Sullivan respectively, before Daniel Crowley struck over a fine score to leave the hosts ahead by four points at the interval.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 2-08, Milltown/Castlemaine 1-07.

It was all to play for and Eanna O’Connor continued his expedition from placed balls with three converted efforts on the trot - punishing the Templenoe defence for every adjudged foul inside their own half. In between, the visitors did lose Jerome Flynn to a black card, but Templenoe failed to capitalize on this. Yet they did have chances, Killian Spillane looked to be through on goal only to see the ball come off the post and then Stephen O’Sullivan had a goal bound effort stopped by the keeper. Ultimately, the hosts would rue these missed chances. A Cathal Moriarty point mid-way through the second half levelled the scores at 2-08 to 1-11. Brian Crowley and Killian Spillane restored Templenoe’s lead to two points, but Milltown/Castlemaine were refusing to go away and responded with who else but Eanna O’Connor with two more frees. It was all square again and a grandstand finish was on the cards. Aidan Crowley with a monstrous free and Kieran McCarthy from play swapped points with Eanna O’Connor (2 frees) to make 2-12 to 1-15 two minutes into injury time. Then amid a frantic finish, an Eanna O’Connor placed ball dropped just short, but broke kindly for the in rushing Dylan O’Neill who managed to pull on the ball for the all-important point and match winning score.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-12, Milltown/Castlemaine 1-16.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 2.

Listowel Emmets 1-13, Templenoe 1-08.

Templenoe made the long trip north to face Listowel Emmets in round 2 of the County League last Saturday evening. A powerful third quarter from the hosts - a period that saw them hit 1-5 without reply proved the difference between the sides in the finish.

Templenoe had the aid of a strong breeze for the first half, but did not make it count in a way they would have liked and ultimately went into the interval trailing by a point. Listowel dominated the opening exchanges and were two points up inside the first four minutes courtesy of Darragh Lynch. Colin Crowley nailed a 45 to get Templenoe off the mark in the fifth minute and then the visitors were very unlucky not to add goal, when a Josh Crowley Holland effort had the keeper beaten only to come off the base of the post. Templenoe subsequently squandered two point chances, before Brian Crowley (mark) tied the scores at two point apiece in the 13th minute. In the ensuing passages of play, Listowel regained control with David Keane displaying his shooting skills to strike three points on the trot to put the hosts a goal ahead. Stephen O’Sullivan replied with a point for the visitors, but then they lost Mike Hallissey to injury, which did not help the cause. Much of the ball going into the Templenoe forwards in the first half and subsequently the second half failed to yield dividends, but Josh Crowley Holland did once again come agonisingly close to raising a green flag when his palmed attempt after good play from Brian Crowley skimmed the crossbar. Having said that, Listowel were guilty of some missed chances too. As the rain started to pour down for a brief spell, Jack McElligott and Daniel Crowley exchanged scores just before the break, to leave the hosts ahead by the minimum.

Half Time Score: Listowel Emmets 0-06, Templenoe 0-05.

The third quarter was when Listowel Emmets did all the damaged. Despite the breeze dying down, the hosts put on a great show lording the play and putting together some smart team moves to outscore Templenoe by 1-5 to 0-0 between the 30th minute and the 44th minute. Darragh Lynch (2), Jake Moriarty, David Keane and Darragh Carey were the points providers, while sandwiched in between came a well taken goal by Jack McElligott. The score was now 1-11 to 0-5 before Templenoe eventually got a badly needed score through a Stephen O’Sullivan free. The visitors battled away, but a comeback never looked likely. Listowel added further points from David Keane and Darragh Lynch and for their part Templenoe had scores from Colin Crowley and Aidan Crowely, before Brian Crowley struck home a penalty for a consolation goal.

Final Score: Listowel Emmets 1-13, Templenoe 1-08.


Listowel Emmets: Darragh Lynch 0-05, David Keane 0-05 (1f), Jack McElligott 1-01, Jake Moriarty 0-01, Darragh Carey 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 1.

Templenoe 1-07, Na Gaeil 0-12.

Templenoe hosted Na Gaeil in the opening round of the County League, in the battle of the two senior clubs in the Division. Both teams were down a number of players due to county commitments, while Templenoe were also adjusting to life after the loss of a few players due to transfers. Nonetheless, this situation also presented opportunities for others to impress. In the end, a late goal from Templenoe’s Aidan Crowley was not enough to deny Na Gaeil from coming away with a full share of the spoils.

It was a lovely afternoon for football and Na Gaeil got the scoring underway with a close in free from Jack Sheehan. Stephen O’Sullivan countered with a placed ball for Templenoe, before two scores on the trot from Dan Goggin gave the Tralee side the lead, which they would never relinquish. Na Gaeil almost followed up with a goal in the 7th minute, but Templenoe keeper Colm Breen got down well to block a low shot from James O’Connor. Colin Crowley beautifully landed a 45 over the bar for the hosts, but Na Gaeil quickly hit back with another free from Jack Sheehan. Na Gaeil were the more dominant side, but Templenoe did have decent spells of possession, however they just seem lack cohesion at times. Daniel Crowley did raise a white flag on the 18th minute for the home side and soon after Josh Crowley Holland looked to be through on goal only for Na Gaeil net minder Aido Quirke to bat away his effort. Two scores from Cian Devine and Eoin O’Neill saw the visitors go in to the break a goal to the good.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-03, Na Gaeil 0-06.

To their credit Templenoe made a bright start the second half with two points in row through Brian Crowley and an inspirational one from Sean Sheehan, who showed great determination to break away from defenders before splitting the posts. This brought the margin back to the minimum. Undaunted, Na Gaeil hit three unanswered points from Jack Sheehan, Dan Goggin and Kieran O’Connor to make it 0-05 to 0-09. At this stage, one felt Templenoe’s only chance of recusing this contest was to get a goal, before Na Gaeil got too much of a grip on proceedings. John Rice did keep the scoreboard ticking over with a long range effort for Templenoe. But Na Gaeil’s decision making when on the offensive was that bit better than Templenoe’s on the day, as they created openings to tack on three more scores from Jack Sheehan, Thomas O’hAinfein and Declan Cooney to extend their lead to six points coming into the final straight. Templenoe were not going to give this game up without a fight though and rallied well in the closing minutes. Colin Crowley thumped over a free, before a good move saw Brian Crowley set up Stephen O’Sullivan - his effort was stopped, but Aidan Crowley was on hand to knock in the rebound on his county senior league debut. There was time for one last throw of the dice from Templenoe, but they were unable to pull off a second goal.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-07, Na Gaeil 0-12


Templenoe: Aidan Crowley 1-00, Colin Crowley 0-02 (1f, 1 45), Sean Sheehan 0-01, Stephen O’Sullivan 0-01 (1f), Daniel Crowley 0-01, Brian Crowley 0-01, John Rice 0-01.
