PEIL FAOI 16: (i) Traenáil mar is gnách Dé hAoine agus Dé Domhnaigh. (ii) Well done, boys! A great final victory v Castlegregory in the Central Region League (Roinn 1) on Monday 21st. Éacht! AdeS: 4-11; Caisleán Ghriaire: 2-9. Up The Rock! We’ve now completed a hat trick of victories in the Central Region competition having won this title for the past two years. In the game we ran into an early lead with first half goals from James Fernane and Jordan Kissane. We were leading by nine points at half time. Castlegregory made a spirited comeback and reduced the deficit to four and indeed this would have been reduced even further but for a brilliant penalty save from Ben Quilter. We settled after that and two further goals from James Fernane and Ciarán Kelliher sealed vicory by ocht gcúilín déag….4-12 to 2-9. Thanks to Castlegregory for allowing this game to be refixed due to the unavailability of a number of our players. Fantastic sportsmanship! We look forward to the County League later in the summer. The victorious Rockmen: Ben Quilter, Ruairí O’Connell, Niall Fitzmaurice, Brian McElligott, Joey Nagle, Luke Chester, Owen Healy, Dean Rusk, Adam Curran (captaen), James Fernane, Shane Bastible, Peter Kearns, Greg Scanlon, Jordan Kissane, Mervyn Shalamba, Evan Foley, Ciarán Kelliher, Conor Kavanagh, James Charles, Liam Tobin, Matthew Browne, Gavin Slattery, Seán Collins, Armin Heinrich. Laochra na Carraige!
FAOI 17: Our best wishes to Seán Quilter and his Kerry colleagues as they prepare for their Munster Final challenge v Clare.
