Donaghy sits it out as Tralee lose home record
Superleague leaders Templeogue ended Garveys Tralee Warriors unbeaten home record with a hard-earned 70-79 victory in the Kerry side's Sports Complex.
Kieran Donaghy did not feature for the hosts despite cutting short a trip with Kerry's footballers to New York in order to make himself available for the fixture.
