County Championship

SHANNON Rangers' campaign in the Senior County Championship came to an end as they lost out to West Kerry in Ballylongford on Saturday evening. The teams were level at half-time on a scoreline of Shannon Rangers 1-3, West Kerry 0-6. Rangers came up short at the final whistle by just two points – 0-12 to 1-7.

Shannon Rangers contest the U-21 Football Championship against Feale Rangers in Listowel on Wednesday next, June 26 at 7pm.

Future star: Enright

IN Knockanure last Friday night a young man called Aiden Enright – still only 17 years old – received the man of the match for his preformance in the Division 5 league final.

Aiden played his underage football with Moyvane and even at a young age showed the skills and determination on the pitch that caught the attention of the senior management. Aiden's grandfather Danny Enright, who played with Ballydonoghue, was also a fine footballer who played with the likes of Eddie Dowling.

Danny would have received many an accolades himself. Aiden is a very promising young footballer who's prefromance on the day of the North Kerry Division 5 League Final was nothing except for courageous. The Board and Knockanure club would like to congratulate Aiden and his family on a great acheivement for such a young man.

Sympathies

THE North Kerry Board would like to send our deepest sympathies to East Kerry Board, Rathmore GAA and the O'Sullivan Family on the sad and sudden passing of a very promising club minor in Christopher.
