Garvey’s County Senior Football Championship, Group 1, Round 2.

Templenoe 0-10, South Kerry 1-06.

Templenoe have progressed to the county championship quarter-final for the fourth year in a row after coming out the right side of yet another tight contest, with Killian Spillane nailing a late free to win the game just as he did the previous weekend against West Kerry.

The game was played in dreadful conditions, but there was still a good crowd in attendance, among them was none other than the President of the GAA Larry McCarthy. Templenoe with a strong breeze behind them raced into three points lead courtesy of points from Killian Spillane, Colin Crowley and Aidan Crowley. Then against the run of pay, a fine team move up the field by South Kerry ended with Fionan Clifford finishing brilliantly to the net. Templenoe regrouped and continued to dominate with Killian Spillane adding another score soon after, but despite having the elements in their favour they failed to convert their next three chances. Jack Clifford and Fionan O’Sullivan traded points with Colin Crowley (2) both of which were beautifully struck long range scores before the break. In between Colin Crowley also came close to setting up a goal for the home side, but it didn’t quite come off with his hand pass across the goal going wide of the posts.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-06, South Kerry 1-03.

The wind was not quite as strong for the second half, with the lead changing hands twice in the third quarter. Killian Spillane edged Templenoe ahead with a pointed free, but South Kerry responded with Keith Brennan and Fionan O’Sullivan who might have had a goal splitting the posts to put them one point to the good. Killian Spillane converted another placed ball to make the score 0-08 to 1-05 before the game enter a period of stalemate. Indeed, it would take another 15 minutes before the next white flag was raised with Brian Crowley finding the range for Templenoe as the game entered the final stretch. South Kerry who like Templenoe in the first half were guilty of squandering a few chances in the second did equalize one last time with Ian O’Sullivan popping the ball over the bar to set up a tense last few minutes. With injury time fast approaching, Templenoe had the chance to retake the lead with a free after Stephen O’Sullivan was fouled and Killian Spillane duly obliged. There were a few minutes of injury time played, but Templenoe held on for another great victory to reach the last eight of the competition for the fourth consecutive year.

Well done to all our players and management.

Garvey’s County Senior Football Championship, Group 1, Round 1.

Templenoe 2-13, West Kerry 0-18.

There may not have been a large attendance at Fitzgerald Stadium last Saturday, but those who did make the trip certainly got full entertainment value with a high scoring contest that went right to the wire. In the end it took a pointed free from Killian Spillane in injury time to separate the sides and the result also means that Templenoe maintains their proud unbeaten record in the opening round of the county championship since they debut season in 2020. 

Templenoe opted to play with the breeze for the first half and the opening 6 minutes of the game saw Killian Spillane (2) trading scores with Dara Ó’Sé and Cathal Ó Beaglaoich. West Kerry then started to gain upper hand and dispel any notions that the district side might lack cohesion on their first competitive outing, by adding three more points to their tally by the quarter mark courtesy of Cathal Ferriter who might have had a goal and Dara Ó’Sé (2). In between, Killian Spillane fired over his first score from play to leave the score 0-03 to 0-05. 

Then perhaps somewhat against the run of play a high ball in from Killian Spillane, broke kindly to Stephen O’Sullivan who had two goal bound efforts well blocked by the West Kerry defence, before Aidan Crowley had better luck with a scuffed shot to regain the lead for Templenoe. However, West Kerry remained undeterred and immediately hit back with Cathal Ferriter and Rob Ó Sé both splitting the posts before the bang in form Killian Spillane continued this scoring spree with two more points for Templenoe. Shortly before half time, Templenoe lost Adrian Spillane to injury, which was a big setback. Templenoe kept going though and then came their second goal which was to prove crucial in the finish, with Stephen O’Sullivan making a great burst forward before lobbing West Kerry keeper Sean Ó Luing for a truly spectacular goal. West Kerry were subsequently unlucky not to find the net themselves with a Cathal Ferriter effort hitting the base of the post, but they did have the final say of the half with Thomas O’Donnell finding the range to reduce the deficit to a goal.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 2-05, West Kerry 0-08.

Templenoe had to make further changes at half time after it emerged the unfortunate Kieran McCarthy who was only on the field a few minutes after he replaced Adrian Spillane had to also retire injured. Nonetheless, Templenoe did have good opening to the third quarter with Killian Spillane, Patrick Clifford and Sean Sheehan all raising white flags, while in between West Kerry had fine scores from Killian Falvey and Rob Ó Sé to leave them four points adrift. West Kerry then hit a purple patch with a brace of points from Dara Ó’Sé (2), James Crean and  Killian Falvey to make it all square at 2-08 to 0-14 coming into the final quarter. 

Gavin Crowley briefly restored Templenoe’s lead with an inspirational point, but West Kerry still had the momentum and they powered on with three more unanswered points through the boots of Cathal Ferriter, Cathal Ó Beaglaoich and the impeccable Dara Ó’Sé to put them two points to the good with Templenoe very much on the backfoot at this stage. Templenoe’s county players Tadhg Morley and Killian Spillane then took on responsibility to stem the tide with two important points to level the scores coming into the final stretch. It was edge of the seat stuff now and the game looked like it might be heading for a draw after Stephen O’Sullivan had a converted mark cancelled out by a Dara Ó’Sé free at the other end. But Killian Spillane was having none of it and when Templenoe earned one last free after a careful build up, he calmly slotted the ball over the bar for the narrowest of wins for Templenoe.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-13, West Kerry 0-18.


Templenoe: Killian Spillane 0-08 (5f), Stephen O’Sullivan 1-01, Aidan Crowley 1-00, Gavin Crowley 0-01, Patrick Clifford 0-01, Sean Sheehan 0-01, Tadhg Morley 0-01.

Kerry Petroleum Senior Football Club Championship, Group 1, Round 3.

Templenoe 1-10, Na Gaeil 0-12.

Probably fair to say that Templenoe were most unlucky to lose to Kenmare by a last-minute goal last weekend, but this time it was Templenoe who had lady luck on their side to deny Na Gaeil victory right at the death courtesy of an Aidan Crowley goal.

There was a big crowd in attendance for this crucial game on a showery evening at Templenoe GAA grounds last Saturday evening. Na Gaeil had the wind to their backs for the first half, but it was Killian Spillane with a long range right footed effort that got the scoring underway. It was very much ebb and flow in the first quarter, Na Gaeil’s Darragh Reen was on fire kicking four points from play, including one excellent score from the near the sideline. Templenoe for their part had scores from Sean Sheehan and Killian Spillane (f) which made the score 0-04 to 0-03 15 minutes in. Templenoe were finding it hard to penetrate a well organised and crowded Na Gaeil defence, while they also had to be careful not to get by caught on the counter any time Na Gaeil turned over possession. Na Gaeil finished the half the stronger with scores from Morgan Madden and Dara Devine either side of Aidan Crowley who earlier had a goal attempt cleared off the line, splitting the posts from an acute angle.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-4, Na Gaeil 0-06.

If Templenoe thought having the wind advantage for the second half would swing this game in their favour, then they were in for a rude awakening. Darragh Reen continued from where he left off to fist the ball over the bar after getting inside the Templenoe defence. Further points followed from Dara Devine and Jack Sheehan following a great burst up the field, while Stephen O’Sullivan was to be Templenoe’s sole scorer in the third quarter. Then Killian Spillane and Jack Doyle exchanged scores to make it 0-06 to 0-10 after 51 minutes of action. The game then started to boil over a little bit, which was perhaps unsurprising with the stakes high for both sides and there were a good few stoppages in the last quarter. Templenoe’s task then got a lot harder, when Colin Crowley was dismissed for an off the ball incident. Aidan Crowley had a pointed free, cancelled out by a Diarmaid O’Connor score from play to keep the gap at four points coming into injury time. It was really only in injury time, that the home side with their senior status potentially on the line started to rally with points from Killian Spillane (2) and his brother Adrian who was moved into full forward for the closing stages. In between Diarmaid O’Connor calmly slotted over a free for the Tralee side. But as Templenoe discovered the previous weekend, a two points lead coming into the dying moments is a very dangerous lead to have especially in championship. With their last hurrah, Stephen O’Sullivan won a free for Templenoe inside the 45, he took the free to Aidan Crowley who caught the ball chest high at the edge of the box, before turning to rifle a low shot into the bottom corner of the net. The referee then blew for full time with the resultant kick out amid joyous scenes from the home side.

Well done to all the players and management who have almost certainly retained Templenoe’s senior status for another year, which will be Templenoe fifth year at senior.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-10, Na Gaeil 0-12.

Last Minute Goal V Na Gaeil

Kerry Petroleum Senior Football Club Championship, Group 1, Round 2.

Kenmare Shamrocks 2-07, Templenoe 0-12.

A heart-breaking defeat for Templenoe, who were ahead for much of the game, but fell victim to an injury time goal from Kenmare’s Shane O’Sullivan for the home side to rescue victory from the jaws of defeat. It was a case of déjà vu for Templenoe who suffered a similar fate in the closing minutes to the same opposition in their first senior club championship meeting back in 2020.

There was a very large crowd in attendance for this local derby game on a lovely afternoon at Fr Breen Park last Sunday. Templenoe started the brighter and made full use of their wind advantage to go 0-00 to 0-03 ahead inside the first 4 minutes. Stephen O’Sullivan opened their account with a well taken mark. Killian Spillane added another, then a patient build-up from Templenoe ended with Stephen O’Sullivan splitting the posts from play. It was the perfect start for the visitors, but Kenmare Shamrocks responded with Jimmy Lehane finding space to register their first score, before Seanie O’Shea doubled their tally. In between Templenoe almost had a goal from Stephen O’Sullivan, but his shot went narrowly wide. Unbowed, Templenoe upped their game again with the next two scores courtesy of a left legged effort from Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan handpassing the ball over the bar to extend their lead to three points. Seanie O’Shea (free) and Stephen O’Sullivan exchanged points before Colin Crowley put Templenoe 0-03 to 0-07 ahead after 17 minutes of play.

Then came Kenmare’s first goal of the day, when good work by Kevin O’Sullivan put Jimmy Lehane through one on one with Templenoe Keeper Mark Looney and he made no mistake with the finish. Kenmare now had the momentum and they made it count with the next two scores in a row to put them in front for the first-time thanks to Seanie O’Shea and Micheal McCarthy. Shortly before the break Killian Spillane tied the scores again with a point off his right boot.

Half Time Score: Kenmare Shamrocks 1-05, Templenoe 0-08.

At the re-start Kenmare Shamrocks restored their one-point advantage with Stephen O’Brien popping the ball over the bar from left corner. However, Templenoe promptly hit back with Killian Spillane converting a free after Aidan Crowley was fouled. Both sides then exchanged a few wides before two points on the trot from Killian Spillane made the score 1-06 to 0-11 midway through the second half. 

With Kenmare struggling for scores despite having the aid of the breeze, they introduced a few a subs for the final quarter. Soon after Kevin O’Sullivan narrowed the gap to one point to set up for a grandstand finish. But once more Templenoe responded in kind with Killian Spillane working a short free to Aidan Crowley, who in turn offloaded to Martin Reilly for Templenoe’s last score. Kenmare substitute Paul O’Connor had a chance to reduce the margin, only pull his shot for a point wide of the posts, then at the other end Killian Spillane was off target with a free for Templenoe. With the game now in injury time Kenmare Shamrocks launched a frantic attack which ended with James McCarthy and Stephen O’Brien setting up Shane O’Sullivan to palm the ball to the net from the end of the square. Templenoe were stunned, but they have one last chance to salvage something from the game, however Kenmare Shamrocks held out for the narrowest of wins. Templenoe will now need to beat Na Gaeil in the round 3 to avoid a relegation play-off, but despite the defeat to Kenmare Templenoe can take heart from much improved performance from that against Spa the previous weekend.

Final Score: Kenmare Shamrocks 2-07, Templenoe 0-12.


Kenmare Shamrocks: Jimmy Lehane 1-01, Seanie O’Shea 0-03 (1f), Shane O’Sullivan 1-00, Micheal McCarthy 0-01, Stephen O’Brien 0-01, Kevin O’Sullivan 0-01.

Kerry Petroleum Senior Football Club Championship, Group 1, Round 1.

Templenoe 0-08, Spa 0-16.

Templenoe began their fourth consecutive season in the senior club championship with a disappointing display against a Spa side that were in control from start to finish.

The match was played before a large crowd on a sunny afternoon at Fr Breen Park. Templenoe opted to play against the breeze in the first half. Spa got off to a flyer with three scores from Dara Moynihan, Cian Murphy (mark) and Evan Cronin (mark) inside the first 5 minutes. Spa just seemed to be quicker to every ball and slicker with their decision making while Templenoe were struggling to get their hands on possession, but Templenoe did get one back with a point from play through Killian Spillane in the 6th minute. However, it was only a temporary reprieve, in the ensuing passages of play Spa upped their work rate again to tag on five unanswered points to make the score 0-01 to 0-08 by the end of the first quarter with Evan Cronin (2), Cian Murphy and Cian Tobin (2) all contributing. 

Templenoe needed scores and fast, Killian Spillane did provide some hope with two points either side of a Cian Murphy white flag for the Killarney side. But again, it failed to ignite Templenoe into life. Mark Looney did well to save a goal bound shot from Cian Tobin before Evan Cronin skimmed the crossbar for Spa to increase their tally to ten points. Some poor shooting from Templenoe before the break did not help their cause, but credit to Spa they gave a near flawless display in front of the posts in the first half hitting only two wides compared to six from Templenoe. Evan Cronin extended Spa’s lead to eight points with a converted free ahead of the interval.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-03, Spa 0-11.

On resumption, Spa were off target with a free before Stephen O’Sullivan kicked a fine long-range score to keep Templenoe in the game. Shane Cronin countered with an equally good score for Spa, but Templenoe were finally starting to get into game more. Two points from Killian Spillane followed and then Brian Crowley on his first competitive game back from injury added another. This made the score 0-07 to 0-12 with plenty of time (22 minutes) remaining. However, on the day Templenoe were just not able to push on. Templenoe were short with their next two efforts and then disaster struck when Stephen O’Sullivan was dismissed after he received a second yellow card.

Although not quite as clinical in the second half, Spa seized the initiative again soon after with Dara Moynihan showing his class to restore their lead to six points. Templenoe with Tadhg Morley going on the offensive had a penalty appeal waved away and instead a free out was awarded to Spa after the referee consulted with his umpires. Evan Cronin capped a fine individual display by thumping over two more scores, he subsequently picked up a black card, but it mattered little. Gavin Crowley got his name on the scoreboard late on for Templenoe. With Templenoe forced to bring keeper Mark Looney out the field, Spa did their best to get a goal and Dan O’Donoghue nearly did only for Kieran O’Neill to deny him with a good stop from the line. The game ended with Spa’s Shane Cronin planting a placed ball over the bar from 45 metres out.

Final Score: Templenoe 0-08, Spa 0-16.


Templenoe: Killian Spillane 0-05 (2f), Stephen O’Sullivan 0-01, Brian Crowley 0-01, Gavin Crowley 0-1.

Credit Union County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 11.

Na Gaeil, 2-07, Templenoe 0-13

Templenoe travelled to Tralee to take on Na Gaeil in the last round of this year’s County Senior Football League. With both teams already secure in their status in the division, and no opportunity of promotion on offer, there was a lack of jeopardy affecting the proceedings. Despite this both teams served up a good display of football.

Templenoe had the aid of the breeze in the first half which really affected the scoring into town end of the pitch. There was a number of early misses by both teams before Colin Crowley opened the scoring for Templenoe with a point. Soon after Jack Bourke pounced on a ball that was not properly dealt with by Templenoe to burst through and score a goal for Na Gaeil. Templenoe responded over the next ten minutes with two more points which also featured a great save by Devon Burns of Na Gaeil from a Stephen O’Sullivan one on one attack.

Dara Devine scored Na Gaeil’s only point from play on the 18th minute. The remaining minutes of the half saw Templenoe scores from Colin Crowley, Aidan Crowley, Mark Casey and Sean Sheehan. Stephen O’Sullivan slotted the last point of the half to leave Templenoe leading of a scoreline of Templenoe 0-08, Na Gaeil 1-01

Templenoe seemed to adapt better to the windy conditions in the second half than Na Gaeil and Aidan Crowley kicked the first point of the half. Both teams swapped points from Sean O’Connor and John Moriarty before Lorcan Seymour added another point for the home team. Stephen O’Sullivan pointed two on the trot which gave Templenoe a bit of comfort at the halfway point of the half.

The final fifteen minutes saw Na Gaeil pull in closer through scores from Dara Devine (2) and Eoghan Daly. A pivotal moment on the twenty fifth minute saw Aidan Crowley through on goal but again like the first half, keeper Devon Burns made a great save to keep Templenoe out. Na Gaeil swept the resulting ball down the field and won a free on the thirty yard mark. Unfortunately they could not capitalize on this with a score.

Sean Sheehan pointed Templenoe’s last score of the match on the twenty eight minute mark to leave three points between the sides. Na Gaeil had not really threatened the Templenoe goal in the second half but a fast paced move found Damien Bourke unattended on the square to finish the ball to the net.

Templenoe had one last attack to grasp victory but it resulted in a wide. The final whistle saw a draw with a score on Na Gaeil 2-07, Templenoe 0-13

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 10.

Templenoe 2-05, Listowel Emmets 0-08.

Templenoe welcomed the visit of Listowel Emmets for the penultimate round of the county league last Sunday. A strong finish by the hosts saw them come from behind to bag a full share of the spoils and move up to fifth place in the table. Although promotion is now out of reach for Templenoe, neither Templenoe nor Listowel will have any relegation concerns coming into the final round, after Firies lost out to Glenbeigh/Glencar in their round 10 game.

Listowel Emmets had the aid of a strong breeze for the first half, but probably fair to say they didn’t capitalize on this advantage in a way they would liked. The visitors kicked five points in the first half and although they did keep Templenoe scoreless for the first 30 minutes, they never really got a run on them. David Keane opened the scoring five minutes in with a point from play. Then with Listowel dominating midfield, pressing the kickouts and turning over numerous Templenoe attacks, they tagged on three more points through Bryan Sweeney (2f) and David Keane to make the score 0-00 to 0-04 by the end of the first quarter. However, Listowel failed to push on with their shooting letting them down – hitting four wides on the trot, while at the other end Templenoe were still trying to find ways to open-up the Listowel defence. Then towards the end of the first half a high long-range kick from Sean Sheehan got held up by the strong breeze, before the vigilant Patrick Clifford gathered possession in the square and finished the ball to the net to bring the hosts to within a point of Listowel. Buoyed by the goal, Templenoe won the subsequent kick out to launch another offensive with Patrick Clifford immediately adding a point to their tally. However, a pointed free from David Keane gave the visitors the edge at the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-01, Listowel Emmets 0-05.

At the restart Listowel Emmets almost had a goal only for Templenoe keeper Mark Looney to divert the ball out for a 45. Listowel continued to probe the Templenoe defence but had to wait until the 37th minute to extend their lead with centre forward Darragh Lynch splitting the posts. Stephen O’Sullivan responded with a monstrous free making full use of the strong wind behind him to pull one back for Templenoe. The hosts had chances to level the scores in the ensuing plays but were off target with their efforts, until Aidan Crowley made no such mistake from a placed ball in the 45th minute to tie the contest at 1-03 to 0-06. The game was now there for the taking for either side and by the 57th minute it was Listowel who were in the ascendancy by the minimum, courtesy of scores from Bryan Sweeney (f) and Eddie Browne either side of another pointed free from Stephen O’Sullivan. Then came the pivotal score of the game, when a great team move by the hosts ended with Hugh Granville giving a precision pass to Stephen O’Sullivan who was through on goal and duly dispatched the ball to the net to put the hosts in front for the first time. Templenoe then sealed the contest with Patrick Clifford thumping over their last point.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-05, Listowel Emmets 0-08.


Templenoe: Stephen O’Sullivan 1-02 (2f), Patrick Clifford 1-02, Aidan Crowley 0-01 (1f)

Listowel Emmets: David Keane 0-03 (1f), Bryan Sweeney 0-03 (3f), Darragh Lynch 0-01, Eddie Browne 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 9.

An Ghaeltacht 3-15, Templenoe 0-10.

A depleted Templenoe made the long trip to Gallarus to take on An Ghaeltacht in round 9 of the county league. This was always going to be uphill struggle for Templenoe without the services of so many first team players, but they gave it their all against a formidable An Ghaeltacht side.

An Ghaeltacht had the assistance of the breeze for the first half. The hosts set the tone early and raced into a 0-07 to 0-01 lead by the end of the first quarter, with Dara Ó Sé their chief scorer in attack, while Templenoe’s solitary score in this period came from Danny Cahalane. The visitors did fare a bit better in front of the posts in the second quarter, but any faint hopes of an upset were well put to bed, when Dara Ó Sé and Tomás Ó Sé both found the net to give the West Kerry side a substantial lead at the break.

Half Time Score: An Ghaeltacht 2-11, Templenoe 0-05.

The second half afforded both sides the opportunity to empty their benches. Templenoe did bring down the deficit to 10 points at one stage in the second half, but that was as close as they could get. An Ghaeltacht substitute Gearóid Breathnach goaled late on to put a gloss on a comprehensive win for the hosts.

Final Score: An Ghaeltacht 3-15, Templenoe 0-10.


An Ghaeltacht: Dara Ó Sé 1-08 (2f), Tomás Ó Sé BB 1-02, Óigí Ó’Sé 0-02, Gearóid Breathnach 1-00, Tomás Ó Sé DC 0-01, PJ MacLáimh 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 8.

Templenoe 0-16, Glenflesk 1-17.

Templenoe hosted Glenflesk in round 8 of the county league last Sunday in glorious sunshine. After a high scoring encounter, Glenflesk emerged victorious with four points to spare. The turning point came 13 minutes in, when Dara Roche converted a penalty after Templenoe had opened up a three points advantage and the hosts never regained the lead thereafter.

There was large crowd in attendance to witness this game, with the league now starting to enter the business end of the season. The hosts started well outscoring Glenflesk by 0-5 to 0-02 in the opening 12 minutes with Stephen O’Sullivan, Colin Crowley (2), Sean Sheehan and Patrick Clifford all contributing. Indeed, the latter was unlucky not to have goaled his effort with the ball scrapping the top of the crossbar. Glenflesk for their part had Dara Roche in fine form throughout, with the first of his scores coming two minutes in and Jeff O’Donoghue added a second score after 11 minutes of play. Then came the pivotal moment when Ian Roche was adjudged to have been fouled inside the box. His brother Dara stepped up and gave Templenoe keeper Mark Looney no chance with his finish, to tie the contest. A water break was granted by the referee to allow both sets of players time for a much-needed drink in the soaring heat.  

When the teams re-emerged, Glenflesk full back Daniel O’Brien briefly joined the attack to put the visitors in front for the first time. Colin Crowley then traded scores with Ian Roche, before Darragh Roche showed his class to fire over two more points, either side of an Aidan Crowley white flag for the hosts with one of Roches’s scores coming from an acute angle.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-07, Glenflesk 1-06.

Templenoe were dealt a blow at half-time with centre forward Patrick Clifford deemed not fit enough to continue. Nonetheless, the hosts proved they were still up the fight with Gavin Crowley powering his way through the defence to get his name on the scoresheet at the restart. Darragh Roche responded in kind, before Colin Crowley put over a beautiful long-range attempt in the 32nd minute. The following seven minutes saw the East Kerry side enjoy a purple patch with Darragh Roche (3) and Sean Doherty pointing in quick succession, with Templenoe’s only reply in between coming from a Stephen O’Sullivan point from play. This put daylight between the sides with the score now 0-10 to 1-11. From here on the visitors pretty much kept Templenoe at arm’s length. Aidan Crowley and Gavin Crowley exchanged points with John Kelliher and Jeff O’Donoghue to leave score 0-12 to 1-13 going into the second half water break.

Templenoe’s cause wasn’t helped when they lost key players Mark Casey and Gavin Crowley to injury in the final quarter, but to their credit they kept plugging away. In fact, the hosts matched Glenflesk for scores (0-04 apiece) in the home stretch, but despite their best efforts Templenoe just could not manufacture a goal to pull this game back from the brink. Stephen O’Sullivan (3) and Aidan Crowley had scores to keep the encounter alive until the end for the hosts, but Glenflesk had points courtesy of brothers Darragh (2) and Dylan Roche (2) to make sure the visitors weren’t going to be caught.

Final Score: Templenoe 0-16, Glenflesk 1-17.


Templenoe: Stephen O’Sullivan 0-05 (3f), Colin Crowley 0-04, Aidan Crowley 0-03 (2), Gavin Crowley 0-02, Sean Sheehan 0-01, Patrick Clifford 0-01.

Glenflesk: Darragh Roche 1-09 (1-00p) (4f), Ian Roche 0-01, Jeff O’Donoghue 0-02, Dylan Roche 0-02, Daniel O’Brien 0-01, Sean Doherty 0-01, John Kelliher 0-01.

Wides: Templenoe 5, Glenflesk 5.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 6.

Kenmare Shamrocks 0-07, Templenoe 1-09.

Templenoe made the short trip to Fr Breen Park for the first meeting of Kenmare Shamrocks and Templenoe in the county league since 2016. A great team performance from start to finish saw Templenoe emerge victors by five points for our first win over our neighbours in seven years.

On a glorious evening with a big crowd in attendance to witness this local derby, the hosts chose to play with the wind for the first half. Kenmare Shamrocks also opening the scoring with a pointed free from Darren Allman, but few if any would have predicted that this would be the only time Kenmare would be in the ascendancy. The visitors responded with a point from play and one from a free through Stephen O’Sullivan. Then Darragh O’Connor was off target with a point effort for Kenmare, before the hosts were dealt with a sucker punch when John Moriarty was fouled just inside the big square and a penalty awarded. Stephen O’Sullivan stepped up and planted the ball in the net with aplomb. This was just the tonic needed to settle Templenoe and make believe that a win was possible. Midway through the first half Darragh O’Connor popped over Kenmare’s second point to make the score 0-02 to 1-02. Templenoe remained focused and continued to work very hard but were guilty of two wides to precede Kenmare’s next score from the boot of Kevin O’Sullivan. Soon after Dara Crowley added another for the hosts to reduce the deficit to the minimum. In the closing minutes of the first half Stephen O’Sullivan traded points with Darren Allman, before the game which was a sporting contest took an unexpected twist with Templenoe’s John Moriarty picking up his second yellow card to reduce the visitors to 14 players just on the stroke of half time.

Half Time Score: Kenmare Shamrocks 0-05, Templenoe 1-03

Templenoe were not noted for been a second half team in their recent outings, but this time it was to be very different with the visitors outscoring their opponents by six points to two with one player less on the field for a whole half hour. Stephen O’Sullivan who was having a whale of a game extended Templenoe’s lead to two points from a placed ball in the 39th minute after a series of missed opportunities by both sides. Then three points on the trot from Templenoe followed with Stephen O’Sullivan (2) and Patrick Clifford firing over inspirational scores to make the score 0-05 to 1-07 after 44 minutes of play. Nonetheless, there was still time for Kenmare Shamrocks to do what they did many times in the past and turn the contest and Kevin O’Sullivan did get one back with a point from play in the 51st minute. With time running out David Hallissey did find a bit of a rare opening in the Templenoe defence, however his shot found the side netting. Aidan Crowley steadied the ship for Templenoe with a white flag to restore their lead to six points with just five minutes of normal time remaining, before David Hallissey split the posts for Kenmare. The hosts still needed two goals, but on this occasion it was to prove a bridge too far for Kenmare Shamrocks with Templenoe closing out the game without any late scares.

Final Score: Kenmare Shamrocks 0-07, Templenoe 1-09


Kenmare Shamrocks: Darren Allman 0-02 (2f), Kevin O’Sullivan 0-02, Darragh O’Connor 0-01, David Hallissey 0-01, Dara Crowley 0-01.

County Senior Football League, Division 2, Round 5.

Templenoe 1-07, Glenbeigh-Glencar 0-15

The Templenoe senior footballers suffered their first defeat in 2023 at the hands of Glenbeigh-Glencar in Templenoe last Saturday evening. It was lacklustre display by Templenoe on the night against a much hungrier Glenbeigh-Glencar side determined to reverse the result of the corresponding fixture from last year.

On fine evening for football, the hosts actually started well and raced into a 0-03 to 0-00 lead after seven minutes, with two placed balled from Stephen O’Sullivan and Aidan Crowley, before the latter put over another from play from a tight angle. Glenbeigh-Glencar responded with Caolim Teahan (f) and Gavan O’Grady (f) both splitting the posts. Then great work by Sean Sheehan put through Stephen O’Sullivan on goal and he did everything right only to see his effort come off the base of the post. It was a let off to the visitors, who despite this were coming more and more into the game. Two points from Liam Smith and Gavin O’Grady (f) saw Glenbeigh-Glencar take the lead for the first time to make the score 0-03 to 0-04 after 15 minutes. Both sides exchanged a few wides, before Templenoe wing back Ciaran Crowley showed great confidence to take on the Glenbeigh-Glencar defence before rifling the ball to the net for a well taken goal. However, the visitors regrouped quickly and responded admirably with three unanswered points to retake the lead courtesy of scores from Caolim Teahan (2) and Gavan O’Grady. Templenoe were struggling to ignite but did get the final score of the half through a converted free from Stephen O’Sullivan.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-04, Glenbeigh-Glencar 0-07

The third quarter saw Glenbeigh-Glencar hit the ground running and blitz Templenoe with seven points on the trot, with Jack Brosnan, Gavan O’Grady (5) and Darran O’Sullivan all contributing. In between, the visitors also nearly had goal, but were denied by a great Mark Looney save. Also, worth mentioning that the Glenbeigh-Glencar shooting throughout was very good, they only hit four wides, while Templenoe had six with less possession. The hosts did have a brief respite midway through the second half with Stephen O’Sullivan and Patrick Clifford both finding the target to make the score 1-06 to 0-14. However, a comeback never looked likely, with Glenbeigh-Glencar very organised getting plenty of bodies back when on the defensive and as a result Templenoe were unable to work an opening for much needed goal to bring them back into the game. Glenbeigh-Glencar closed out the contest with another Gavin O’Grady score to cap a fine performance with his ninth score of the evening, while Aidan Crowley thumped over a free for Templenoe’s last score.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-07, Glenbeigh-Glencar 0-15


Templenoe: Stephen O’Sullivan 0-03 (3f), Aidan 0-03 (2f), Ciaran Crowley 1-00, Patrick Clifford 0-01.
