Urban Football Finals in Kerry   31/10/2019

The Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Urban finals were played in near perfect conditions in Austin Stacks Park on Wednesday evening last. What a way to mark the Silver Jubilee of Cumann na mBunscol activity in the county. Prior to 1994, the competitions were played as district competitions but since then the county committee has ensured that the respective district champions and the larger urban schools get the opportunity to capture county titles.

We were treated to a feast of fast flowing football, some excellent team and individual performances and top class scoring which belied the age of the participants and captures the attention of the loyal supporters who cheered their respective teams right to the end of captivating final performances. The first two finals were well officiated on by our county referees tutor Muiris Ó Súilleabháin while Gordon Kerins did a fine job on the last two finals of the evening.

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Div. 4 urban final  

In the opening game of the evening the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Div. 4 urban final the physically stronger Lissivigeen outfit got off to a flying start to dominate proceedings against their younger Dromclough opponents who will surely be back in the coming years to claim a title. Lissivigeen NS were eight ahead at the break and remained in command for long periods of the second half and  were full value for this victory with top class performances from Joey Mc Carthy, Fionn Daly, Nathan Cronin and Jake Walsh. Dromclough NS competed until the end in true North Kerry fashion to the cheers of their huge band of supporters to narrow the gap but alas the Killarney outfit with were not to be caught. Dromclough had fine performances from Tadhg Doran, Mark Mc Elligott, Gearóid O Sullivan and Jamie Breen.

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Div.3 urban Final. Holy Family 2-8 Fossa 0-7

This final saw the pairings meet for the third time this year as both schools qualified from the same groups following the phase 1 and phase 2 of the round robin leagues earlier in the term. On those two occasions Holy Family had won one of the games and the other finished all square but on this occasion the Rathmore boys got the all important early goal to settle them and while Fossa landed three well taken points from two from Dylan O Meara and one from midfielder and captain Karl James O Neill Holy Family responded with efforts from Evan O Sullivan, Conor Moynihan and two beautifully stroked points from David Darmody. Sarah Mahoney’s early goal ensured that the Sliabh Luachra outfit led 1-4 to 0-3 at the break. With nine minutes remaining only a goal separated the sides as we saw Fossa try desperately to close the gap but the all important second goal was scored by Holy Family following an excellent counter attack with Daniel O Connor finishing to the net. A point from Sean Mc Auliffe ensured that there was no way back for Fossa as Holy Family retained the title. Along with the scorers Grace Murphy, Alex Thompson and Cathal Casey were best for Scoil an Teaghlach Naofa while goalkeeper Jamie Vousden, James O Meara, Fionn Doyle and Mark Kennedy were to the fore for Fossa.

 Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Div.2 urban Final. Scoil Eoin Naofa An Neidín1-11 Scoil Mhuire Cill Orglan 1-10

This Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Div.2 urban Final was an absolute classic with the sides deadlocked on three occasions during the last ten minutes of the game which was played at a hectic pace and as the encounter appeared to be heading for extra time the Kenmare boys popped up with the match winner with seconds remaining. This game had everything excellent movement, top class team and support play high fielding, narrow misses and some excellently executed scores. In Adam O Neill Scoil Mhuire had a top class marksman and an all round accomplished footballer who gave a football exhibition on Wednesday evening. He accounted for five of their first half points with Tomás Seoighe slotting over the other point as Scoil Eoin Noafa led 1-6 to 0-6 at the break thanks to two fine points and an excellent goal from full forward David Grebowiee, two well struck frees and a peach from play by outstanding midfielder Liam Browne and their opening score of the game from Alex Sheehan.

 Adam O Neill and Liam Browne swapped points early in the second half as Scoil Mhuire were coming more and more into the game. A pointed free from Tomás Seoighe narrowed the gap and when Adam O Neill outfoxed defenders and goal keeper alike to finish beautifully to the net Scoil Mhuire appeared well placed to claim the title. However, a well placed free from Liam Browne saw the teams tied with ten minutes remaining. Killorglin took the lead again but Kenmare responded as we entered the last few minute Scoil Mhuire went ahead again but, missed a few frees to extend their lead. Kenmare though hanging on by a thread at this stage attacked once more to level through John E. O Sullivan and thet  landed the winning point from a close in free from David Geebowiee to the cheers of their proud mentors and supporters

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol 6/8 teacher final

  Scoil Nuachabháil 2-9   Currow NS 1-


This Allianz Cumann na mBunscol 6/8 teacher final was another tremendously exciting encounter between two evenly matched teams who had top performers within their ranks Eoin Moriarty, Ben O’Keeffe, Jorge Garcia, Jill Quirke and Mairtín Mc Kivergan were to the fore throughout for the winners while Currow had top performers in captain Daniel Mc Carthy, Conor Clifford and the towering midfielder Ruairí Brosnan.

The sides were level on four occasions in the opening period of the first half as the score was evenly poised at 0-5 each mid way through. Nohoval struck for two points to take the lead but more importantly the closed off all avenues to their own goal and thus denied their opponents finish off some very promising moves. However, it was the two goals which they rattled in just before half time that proved crucial. They first a typical poaching forward effort as a loose ball was finished to the net by classy full forward Mairtín Mc Kivergan and Mairtín nailed a fantastic second effort just on the stroke of half time to see his side lead at the break 2-7 to 0-5.

There was very little between these sides and Currow  stormed back into contention in the second half as Nohoval placed greater emphasis on defending and only registered two second half points. On this occasion it was enough and though captain Daniel Mc Carthy burst through for a great team goal and the outstanding Ruairí Brosnan brought his personal tally to nine points all well kicked frees as he himself was brought to ground for most of them as he tried to weasel his way through the all important much needed goal didn’t materialise and Scoil Nuachabháil claimed the title on a 2-9 to 1-9 final scoreline to the delightful cheers of their supporters.
