Tomas O Se return to action a boost for Kingdom as he stars for West Kerry in county championship

LONG-serving defender Tomas O Se handed Kerry boss Jack O'Connor a timely boost over the weekend by showing he's well on the way to recovery.

The former All Star has been troubled by a back injury, but proved that he's on the mend as he starred for West Kerry in the Kerry SFC as they just lost out to a Seamus Scanlon-inspired St Kieran's by 1-17 to

1-16 after extra-time.

Marc O Se did not line out for West Kerry as he is still troubled by a shoulder injury, but Tomas was back to his rampaging best, kicking a trademark second-half point.

Edmund Walsh kicked 1-6 and Tom McGoldrick scored 0-6 for St Kieran's.

The Kerry boss was also pleased with the efforts of his son Eanna with St Michael's Foilmore, who fought back from five points down to force extra-time and beat St Brendan's by a point (3-12 to 1-17).

Rathmore beat Mid Kerry by 0-12 to 0-6, while Kilcummin defeated Shannon Rangers by 0-16 to 0-14. East Kerry saw off Gneeveguilla by 0-18 to 0-7.

In Galway, Padraic Joyce rolled back the years with a hat-trick as Killererin sealed their spot in the quarter-finals of the Galway SFC yesterday with victory over Leitir Mor.

Corofin needed two injury-time points from Alan O'Donovan to take a 0-14 to 0-12 win over Cortoon Shamrocks.
