Listowel Duagh Comhaltas

Deputy Michael Healy Rae criticises Government over fall in car sales

Deputy Michael Healy Rae TD raised this week with the Taoiseach the very serious concerns he has with regards to declining new car sales. He believes that the uncertainty created by this government whereby people are fearful of legislation that there may be in the future with regards to petrol and diesel cars is having a massive negative impact on car sales and therefore endangering our motor sales industry which gives much needed employment in Co.Kerry and around the country.

It is most important that these jobs are protected and while, over time, changes may take place, it is not going to happen overnight so people should not be stopped from buying whatever car they like in the meantime. Deputy Healy Rae said he will be sure to keep fighting on this issue.

The winners were dominant in all areas of the field from the throw in, and two first half goals from Shane Conway, coupled with the dismissal of a Ballyheigue defender on a second yellow card ended any prospect of a competitive encounter. Lixnaw led at the break by 2-11 to 0-6 and continued their dominance on the resumption, running out easy winners on a final score of 3-25 to 0-13.

Senior Hurling Championship: Ballyduff were lucky to come away from Austin Stack Park last Sunday in their first round game with Crotta O’Neills. Crotta had the better of the opening exchanges and led by four points at half time. Ballyduff came more into the game and by the twentieth minute were three points to the good but Crotta came back to tie the scores and send the game to extra time. Ballyduff led by one point at halftime in extra time but a Crotta goal left us trailing by two with time almost up. A goal mouth scramble and Podge Boyle was on hand to flick the ball to the net and put us up by a point with injury time elasped. But from the puck out Crotta secured possession and sent the sliotar between the posts & both sides lived to fight another day.

Half time score Knocknagoshel 1-2 Asdee 2-7.​ Both teams scored a couple of pointed frees at the start of the second half with Edmond Walsh on target for Knocknagoshel and Darragh Keane scoring for Asdee. Knocknagoshel then began to dominate and points by Niall Barrett, Shane O’Connell and Edmond Walsh reduced the deficit to five. Further points by James Walsh, Michael Walsh and John Brosnan left just two between the sides approaching injury time. Darragh Keane scored a free for Asdee with the last kick of the game.

NORTH KERRY DIVISION 2 LEAGUE FINAL. Asdee 2-11 -v- Knocknagoshel 1-11. Played at O Sullivan Park, Finuge on Saturday evening last Asdee became McCarthys Insurance Brokers, North Kerry League Division 2 champions but had to survive a late come-back from the pre match favourites Knocknagoshel before getting over the line. This has to be one of the best team performances that Asdee have given for quite a while; urged on by our huge support; they were really fired up; putting some terrific moves together that resulted in fantastic scores as they chased and harried their opponents winning huge turn-overs and without a doubt laid down a marker as to who wanted it more. It maybe unfair to single any one player for special mention but certainly our excellent goalkeeper James Kelly played a huge part in this victory making some stunning saves during the game but none more-so than in the 26thminute of the first half when he was one and one with a Knock forward but brought off a super save to deny what looked like a certain score. He was fronted by a solid back-line of Con Carmody, Kieran Kelly, Conor Keane, Mike Breen, Martin Collins and Jack Keane who kept the Knock forwards under wraps for the bigger part of the game. Darragh Keane and John Doran excelled at midfield making sure that a good supply of quality ball went into our forwards and in a fast moving attack; Paul O Carroll, Darren Russell, Captain Sean Keane, Man of the Match, Eoin Kennedy, “Bomber” Tydings and the 2 goal hero Cyril Dineen were to cause havoc when in possession. David O Connor Jack Collins and She’a Doran played their part when introduced.The game itself was played in championship fervor with no quarter given or asked, plenty physiciality but fair play to both teams always played within the rules. It was only under a minute old when the elusive Cyril Dineen struck for the first of his two goals from a move that started out of defence and this certainly was the dream start that Asdee needed and probably was crucial to the end result. Knock did have a few attacks but our defence stood firm and it took until the 18th minute before they got their opening score from Edmond Walsh; however by that stage Asdee had rattled off points through Darren Russell, Eoin Tydings, Darragh Keane and a superb score from his number 6 position by Martin Collins to put their team ahead 1-4 to 0-1. At this stage Asdee were winning plenty possession and Sean and Darragh Keane splitting the posts. James Kellys save as already mentioned was crucial as Knock came strongly to get something before the first half ended and goals were exchanged by Cyril Dineen, (27th minute) and Knock substitute John O Keeffe, (28th Minute) but the final score of the half came from Eoin Tydings to leave the half time score Asdee 2-7 Knock 1-2. On the changeover a stern pep talk at the break from John Kennedy was to drive the Shannonsiders on as they duly obliged showing pure passion and the will to win and even though they only scored 4 points they were always in the driving seat until the late stages of the game when Knock threw caution to the wind and went in all out attack. Darragh Keane kicked 2 points as Knock were coming a little more into the game and with points from Edmond Walsh, John O Keeffe and Nial Barrett they were making inroads into the game as it stood 2-9 to 1-6 by the end of the 3rd quarter. Eoin Tydings did get on the scoreboard again with a valuable point as Asdees rearguard were now working overtime as Knock were coming forward in droves in search of scores as we approached the final whistle; and they certainly put in a huge effort and 5 points in a row cut the deficit to just 2 points with


Edmond Walsh very much involved in the comeback. Then deep into injury time a long ball out of defence saw lone forward Darren Russell pulled down and from the resultant free the reliable Darragh Keane pointed as the Finuge Referee Ian Liston blew the final whistle to start the celebrations amongs players and supporters alike. After the game Chairman of the North Kerry Board, Johnny Stack was on hand to present captain Sean Keane with the Cup. On behalf of McCarthys Bar Finuge, Nollaig McCarthy presented Eoin Kennedy with the Man of the Match. Yes the players did us proud on the field but we cant forget the four wise men on the sideline; John Kennedy, Dan Dalton, Sean Doran and the ever present Mike “Tricky” Enright who masterminded a superb victory. The team and scorers were; James Kelly, Con Carmody, Kieran Kelly, Conor Keane, Mike Breen, Martin Collins, 1pt, Jack Keane, John Doran, Darragh Keane, 5pts,(4f), Paul O Carroll, Sean Keane, captain, 1pt, Darren Russell, 1pt, Cyril Dineen, 2gls, Eoin Tydings, 3pts, Eoin Kennedy. Subs; David O Connor for Cyril Dineen, She’a Doran for Paul O Carroll.

Senior County League Ballylongford 2-12 Beaufort B 2-14 Ballylongford were in a winning position on a couple of occasions but failed to drive home their advantage thus allowing Beaufort to take the points on offer in the closing stages of the game. Played in perfect conditions in O’Rahilly Park. Bally were well on top in the early stages with Ciaran O’Connor kicking over six points to Beaufort’s one a pointed free from Paudie Coffey. Beaufort always had the edge at midfield and finished the half strongly with further points from Coffey and Mark Doona while Ballylongford replied with points from Ciaran O’Connor and Joe McCarthy leaving the half time score. Ballylongford 0-8 Beaufort 0-4. Ballylongford increased their advantage to seven points within the first five minutes of the second half with two from Ciaran O’Connor and one from Ciaran Dowd who made a good run from his wing back position.However Beaufort hit back with the first goal of the game five minutes later when they worked the ball up the field and Mike Fogarty finished to the net,and they went on to add a further four points to bring the side level.

minutes later Thomas Doherty palmed the ball to the net at the back post to put them seven clear again and in a good position going into the final quarter. Beaufort got a goal back in the 18th minute and gathered a good bit of momentum as they kicked over a further six points without reply with the goal coming from Kevin O’Brien which now puts them on level points with the home side.

Email: NORTH KERRY LEAGUE DIVISION 2 FINAL Sponsored by McCarthy Insurance Listowel Report by Mairead O Sullivan - Knocknagoshel 1.11 -v- Asdee 2.11 On Saturday evening last in O’Sullivan Park Finuge, the last of our league finals took place under the watchful eye of Ian Liston. This game was one of the most exciting North Kerry League Finals I have every witnessed for atmosphere and passion. From the throw in both sets of supporters were up for the game cheering on their players loud and proud, their was an air of Championship Fever around O Sullivan Park. Asdee got of to the dream start with a goal in the first minute punched to the back of the net by Cyril Dineen.  Asdee brought a ferocious tempo to the game and came at the Knocknagoshel backs in waves of attack.  It took Asdee until the 7th minute to register their next score with a point fisted over the bar by Darren Russell and for the next ten minutes Asdee owned the ball with points coming from Owen Tydings a long range from the dug out side of the pitch, with mid fielder Darragh Keane converting from a free, and center back Martin Collins getting in on the act in the 14th minute, again Darragh Keane converted a free in the 16th minute with no reply from Knocknagoshel. But don’t get me wrong Knocknagoshel had their chances within the first 17 minutes but seemed nervous and unsettled in attack, with the wide’s adding up, one wondered how long more their backs could hold up to the pressure brought by Asdee.  But it was Knocknagoshel’s Edmund Walsh who got the scoreboard started in the 18th minute for Knocknagoshel to a roar of encouragement from the stand, again Walsh added a free in the 22nd minute after missing some score able chances earlier.  This was more like the Knocknagosehel that their supporters knew.  But Asdee didn’t name their Captain for no reason and up popped Sean Keane to split the posts to rise his players and supporters.  But it was the genius of Asdee’s Eoin Kennedy in the 26th minute that changed the game, Knocknagoshel in attack and from his teams half back line Eoin swept in for a turn over to charge up the field towards the dressing room end to lay the ball off to Cyril Dineen who thanked Kennedy for his hard work by rattling the Knocknagoshel net for his second goal.  Knocknagoshel management knew they were in trouble with 11 points between the teams at this stage and substitute John O O’Keeffe thanked his managements confidence,  by rattling the Asdee net in the 28th minute to cut the difference to eight points.  But Asdee weren’t finished yet and full forward Owen Tydings split the posts in the 32nd minute of the first half.  One wondered if Asdee could keep this pace up in the second half and waited for the fight back from Knocknagoshel.  Half time score Asdee 2.07 v Knocknagoshels 1.02 And sure enough the fight back arrived and so did Knocknagoshel. It was Asdee mid fielder Darragh Keane who opened the second half with a point in the first minute, but the reply from Knocknagoshel came quick and fast from the boot of Edmund Walsh in the 3rd min-

ute. It was now Knocknagoshel owning the ball, but seemed to carry the ball into contact instead of kicking it in fast which suited Asdee’s defensive system allowing them  to filter back with a sweeper and forced Knocknagoshel to kick the ball unwisely at times.  A free for Asdee in the 5th minute was converted by Darragh Keane, the next score came from a free for Knocknagoshel converted by Edmund Walsh and from here on it was Knocknagoshel who would dominated the tempo of the game.  Knocknagoshel Niall Barrett pointed in the 13th minute, the mid field combo of Shane O’Connell and Mike Walsh both added points, but it would be the wides that Knocknagoshel would rue. With a point from Asdee Owen Tydings to keep his side in touch to the roar from the stands.  The players and supporters in the grounds  could feel that the pendulum had swayed in Knocknagoshel favor and the noise level and intensity on the pitch notched up another level. There was no quarter given and both sets of players gave it their all as if their lives depended on it. A free awarded to Knocknagoshel was converted by center back James Walsh in the 27th minute to bring the difference to 4 points between the sides, with a lot of stoppages and time to be added on could Knocknagoshel turn this game around, It was corner back John Brosnan who gave his side hope to cut the lead to 3 points in the 28th minute of normal time.  With the game going up and down the pitch no inch given it took until the 34th minute four into extra time for Knocknagoshels  Edmund Walsh to convert a free to bring the sides two points apart.  But to secure the 3 point advantage Asdee Daragh Keane pointed in the 37th minute.  Knocknagoshel tired hard but now they needed a goal.  The final whistle blew in the 38th minute to a invasion of the pitch by the Asdee supporters.  Asdee last won the North Kerry League back in 1991 and you could see what this game meant to these two rural clubs.  This is what the GAA should be all about.  I am looking forward to the North |Kerry Championship this year I think there could be some upsets along the way. What a match.   Full time score Asdee 2.11 v Knocknagoshel 1.11. Referee: Ian Liston Finuge

For the life of me I just couldn’t remember her name…last week a senior moment had its way with me causing me to realise once again how fragile we humans are. We are so vulnerable; we can cease to be in the twinkling of an eye. Later that same day l read my bible from Isaiah 43:1 “Fear not for l have redeemed you, l have called you by name; you are mine” Isn’t it so incredible that the God who spoke the world into existence knows my name. He assures me that  “before l was born the Lord called me; from my birth He has made mention of my name” Isaiah 49:1   “our names are written on the palms of His Hands” Isaiah 49:16. In the last book of the bible God reveals that the Book of Life is a record containing the names of those who have overcome sin through accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour of their life promising them eternal life. In Revelation chapter 3 verse 5 Jesus declares “All who are victorious are clothed in white. l will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but l will announce before My Father and His angels that they are mine.” Fortunately for us God doesn’t have senior moments, but we also have our part to play while we are still able.
