Match Reports

Templenoe 1-12, St Mary’s 1-7.

Templenoe commenced their fourth consecutive year in Division 1 with a five points win at home to St Mary’s Cahersiveen last Sunday.

The visitors were first off the mark will two points from play through Darren Casey and Denis Daly. But Templenoe who had the aid of a very strong breeze in the first half, hit back with the next six points on the trot. The first of these scores came from Brian Crowley, before Stephen O’Sullivan converted a free after the former was fouled. Then Killian Spillane added two more points, either side of a superb score from John Rice from an acute angle. Pat Spillane made the score 0-6 to 0-2, after he split the posts in the 10th minute. Soon after former Kerry star Bryan Sheehan beautifully landed a placed ball from over 30 yards out for St Mary’s. In the second quarter Templenoe continued to dominate, but their shooting left them down them at times, hitting no less than six wides in the first half. Yet, Stephen O’Sullivan did keep the scoreboard ticking over with another pointed free. Templenoe were almost in for a goal in the 21st minute, but a Killian Spillane effort was well saved by Keeper Michael Daly, however Templenoe managed to recover possession for Killian Spillane to slot the ball over the bar from a little further out. The away side had a strong finished to the first half, with Bryan Sheehan thumping over another free, before a dropped short effort at a point by Muiris Fitzgerald was deflected into the net by Mark Quigley. This put the visitors in a good position going in at the interval

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-8, St Mary’s. 1-4.

St Marys were dealt a major blow at half time, after it emerged that County Panalist Denis Daly could play no further part after he picked up an injury. Despite playing against the strong breeze, the home side would go on to give a much better performance in the second half. As they controlled the game, although they did have some frustrating periods and found it difficult to manufacture scores against the gale force wind. Pat Spillane put Patrick Clifford through for Templenoe’s opening score in the second half, before Daniel Daly and Stephen O’Sullivan traded points. In between, a Killian Spillane effort at goal hit the post, Josh Crowley Holland did finish the rebound to the net, but the referee however had already blown his whistle for a free out. Then on the 18th minute came the goal Templenoe were searching for all through. It came about after Gavin Crowley got into a great position and although his shot was once again well saved by Michael Daly, the rebounded effort was despatched to the net yet again by the vigilant Josh Crowley Holland and this time his effort did stand. This put daylight between the sides with Templenoe now ahead by 1-10 to 1-5. Templenoe consolidated their position with two points from Stephen O’Sullivan coming into the final stretch. St Mary kept fighting to the end and two points from Brian Sheehan did reduce the arrears to five points, but Templenoe had already done enough to secure two valuable county league points.

Templenoe 4-08, Waterville 2-10

Templenoe won their first ever South Kerry League title with an exciting victory over Waterville on a very windy evening in Derrynane GAA Grounds. Following a prolonged period of rain the ground was very heave but held up well for the sixty minutes.

Templenoe played with the wind in the first half, but struggled to utilize this advantage, and it was actually Waterville who opened up the scoring with a point from Oran Clifford. Templenoe had to wait until the eight minute to register their first point with a Brian Crowley pointed free. Patrick Clifford and Brian Crowley quickly added further scores but Barry O’Dwyer responded with a free for Waterville. Templenoe had already worked two clear goal chances but both were saved. Waterville were far more clinical in front of goal and did not kick a wide in the half.

Barry O’Dwyer added another free on the twentieth minute, and this was followed by a frantic minute of play when a well worked Waterville goal by Eoin O’Sullivan was cancelled out by a John Rice goal sixty seconds later. The Templenoe goal swept straight down the field from Danny Cahalane’s kick out, to Pat Spillane and ended up with goal scorer John Rice to finish to the net.

A Stephen O’Sullivan pointed free for Templenoe preceded Waterville’s second goal which was finished to the net by Jamie O’Sullivan. Pat Spillane closed out the scoring of the half leaving the interval score Templenoe 1-05, Waterville 2-03. Templenoe kicked six wides during the half.

Brian Crowley kicked the first two points of the second half as Templenoe started much better against the wind, but Waterville replied with points by Sam O’Dwyer and Barry O’Dwyer. Pat Spillane finished off a good move involving Patrick Clifford and Martin Reilly to score Templenoe’s second goal and following a Barry O’Dwyer free, Martin Reilly kicked a rebounded effort off the ground to the net to leave the score on the 42nd minute, Templenoe 3-07, Waterville 2-06.

Barry O’Dwyer kicked two frees to reduce the arrears coming into the last quarter, and a further long range point by Eoin O’Sullivan of Waterville left a point in the difference. The decisive score came with five minutes remaining when Pat Spillane scored his second goal. Waterville again responded with an Oran Clifford point but Pat Spillane closed out the scoring with a well taken point from a tight angle leaving Templenoe victorious on a score of Templenoe 4-08, Waterville 2-10.

South Kerry League Group A Round 3:

Templenoe 1-15, St Michaels/Foilmore 0-6.

Templenoe comfortably overcame the challenge from St Michaels/Foilmore last Sunday, to give the home side their second win in the competition.

Templenoe raced into a three points lead with Stephen O’Sullivan and Pat Spillane (2) hitting the target. St Michael/Foilmore replied with an effort from former Kerry Under 21 star Matthew O’Sullivan. The remainder of the half saw the hosts completely dominate proceedings, with scores from Stephen O’Sullivan (2), Brian Crowley and John Rice putting Templenoe 0-7 to 0-1 ahead after 15 minutes of play. Soon after the visitors task got even harder, when they had to replace Matthew O’Sullivan, after he picked up a back injury. Templenoe duly kept their foot on the pedal and a brace of points from Stephen O’Sullivan, John Rice and Brian Crowley extended the home side’s lead to nine points. Pierce McGill did split the posts for St Michaels/Foilmore in the closing minutes of the first half, but Templenoe immediately responded with a point from Pat Spillane. Then came the best move of the match, which started with a long kick out from Templenoe Keeper Danny Cahalane to find Josh Crowley Holland with pinpoint accuracy, who in turn fed Pat Spillane to dispatch the ball to the roof of the net, for a superb finish.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-11, St Michaels/Foilmore 0-2.

To their credit St Michaels/Foillmore did stage a bit of a rally in the opening minutes of the second half with Cian Goggin and Pierce McGill finding the range. However, Templenoe were in no mood to let their lead slip and pushed on with Stephen O’Sullivan, Josh Crowley Holland and Pat Spillane all raising white flags, to leave the home side 1-14 to 0-4 points in front with 12 minutes remaining. Both teams used the opportunity to give a few subs game time and it was of one of the St Michaels/Foilmore substitute’s Darran O’Sullivan, who stepped up to slot over a close in free for the South Kerry side. The match ended with Luke O’Shea and Stephen O’Sullivan trading points.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-15, St Michaels/Foilmore 0-6.

South Kerry League Group A Round 2:

Templenoe 1-6, Renard 2-4

A lacklustre performance from Templenoe saw them lose out by one point at home to Renard in a match played in wet and windy conditions.

Templenoe started quite well and got off the mark with a close range point from Martin Reilly in the 2nd minute. But Renard who had wind advantage in the first half replied with two scores of their own through Darragh Fitzgerald and Kevin Kelly. Teddy Doyle tied up the scores again after he converted a free, following a foul on John Rice. Then two quick points from the Spillane cousins Pat and Tom put the hosts 0-4 to 0-2 ahead at the end of the first quarter. Scores were hard to come by in the next 15 minutes, with the rain starting to cpme down heavy, but Darragh Fitzgerald did find the range for the visitors with a score from over 30 yards out. Then just on the stroke of half time, Mark Sugrue landed a 45 over the bar to leave matters all square at the interval.  

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-4, Renard 0-4

The opening 12 minutes of the second half saw both sides, but Templenoe in particular guilty of coughing up possession and handling errors. The home side just failed to take advantage of the strong wind and hit a number of wides as well. However, in the 13th minute John Moriarty put Pat Spillane through for the game’s first goal, a rocket of shot giving Renard Keeper James O’Sullivan no chance. Renard’s response though was imminent with Kevin Curran combining with Sean O’Connor, who hit a low shot to the net to level the scores once again. Teddy Doyle briefly restored Templenoe’s lead to one point, but then the host’s were dealt a blow when they lost their top scorer Pat Spillane to a second yellow card. The game was now on a knife edge and with just a few minutes remaining, a high ball in from Brian Sugrue was fisted to the net by Liam Sugrue. Veteran Dan O’Connor almost had a goal for Templenoe, but his effort was well saved by the goalie. Then in injury time a long ball from John Rice was gathered by Teddy Doyle, but he fired his effort just over the crossbar.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-6, Renard 2-4


Templenoe: Pat Spillane 1-1, Teddy Doyle 0-3 (0-1f), Martin Reilly 0-1, Tom Spillane 0-1.

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 1-13, St Marys/Renard 1-12

The final of the South Kerry Minor Football Championship was played on a lovely October evening on a fine Dromid pitch. Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane were playing a St Marys/Renard combination in a match which kept the spectators enthralled until the very last minute.

St Marys/Renard opened the scoring with a point from Tadhg O’Connor and they quickly followed up with a Muiris Fitzgerald pointed free. Timmy Murphy kicked Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane’s first score but the following attack saw a Tadhg O’Connor shot produce a great save from TSD goalie Dylan Van Daele. Points from Colin Crowley and Ruairi Burns had Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane in the lead by the tenth minute.

The match was to ebb and flow throughout the sixty minutes with both teams enjoying short periods of dominance before the opposition would come back into proceedings. St Marys/Renard notched a hat trick of points which was then cancelled by two quick points from frees by Ruairi Burns and Timmy McCarthy. Colin Crowley missed a goal opportunity when his shot scraped the upright, and the final point of the half was an impressive shot from out on the wing by Sean Teahan of St Marys/Renard while he was being fouled. This left St Marys leading at the interval on a score of Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 0-06, St Marys/Renard 0-07.

If there was to be any advantage of the slight breeze, Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane would have it for the second half but St Marys/Renard had a great first five minutes as Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane struggled to clear the ball out of their defence. Robert Wharton and Sean Teahan kicked two scores in this period. Rurai Burns stopped the rot with a point from play. Soon after a crucial moment happened when a long range Colin Crowley point attempt spilled out from the goalie into the onrushing Timmy Murphy who was subsequently fouled for a penalty. Conor O’Brien dispatched the ball to the net for a goal for Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane and the next attack yielded a fine point from Colin Crowley. Liam Sugrue and Timmy Murphy swapped points, as did Tadhg O’Connor and Colin Crowley. Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane were holding a two point lead at this stage with ten minutes remaining.

Again both teams scored points but another turning point occurred when a Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane attack broke down and the ball was swept up the field to create a St Marys/Renard two on one situation which Tadhg O’Connor finished to the net.

The last five minutes were played at a frantic pace with both teams guilty of wasting possession and missing scores. A Jack Riney point for Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane levelled matters. A draw and extra time would probably have been a fair result but Timmy Murphy somehow managed to smuggle the ball through a forest of St Marys/Renard players to kick the winning score. St Marys/Renard still had time to find an equalizer but never worked an opportunity leaving Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane the South Kerry Minor Football Champions on a score of Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 1-13, St Marys/Derrynane 1-12

The Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane and Glenflesk teams who contested a very exciting Division 3 East Kerry Minor League Final this evening in Templenoe. Unfortunately the home side lost out on a score of Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 3-12, Glenflesk 4-16


St Mary’s 2-10, Templenoe 1-9.

Templenoe made the long trip west to take on St Mary’s Cahersiveen in the final round of the County League last Saturday evening. This game was played in wet, windy and misty conditions and in the finish it was the home side who withstood a second half comeback from Templenoe to take a full share of the spoils.

Templenoe who had an extremely strong breeze behind them in the first half, got off to a good start with Killian Spillane splitting the posts from play inside the opening minute. However, St Mary’s responded with the next five points in a row courtesy of Aidan Walsh, Sean Cournane, Liam O’Connell, Brian Sheehan and Jack Daly. This made the score 0-5 to 0-1 after 9 minutes of play. As the rain started to come down, both sides struggled with the conditions which saw possession getting coughed up and point efforts either dropping short or going wide. The visitors eventually registered their second score in the 22nd minute with Killian Spillane again the provider. The remaining minutes of the half saw the hosts increase their advantage with two placed ball efforts from Brian Sheehan along with another score from Sean Cournane. In between corner back John Spillane did land a much needed point for Templenoe, after receiving a pass from Pat Spillane.

Half Time Score: St Mary’s 0-8, Templenoe 0-3.

St Marys extended the lead at the start of the second half with Sean Cournane hitting the target, but ironically Templenoe would go on to give a much better display against the gale force wind than what they produced in the first half when the wind was in their favour. Between the 32nd and the 45th minute Templenoe hit six points on the trot to bring them level with St Mary’s. Tadhg Morley burst up the field to get two well taken scores, while substitute Stephen O’Sullivan was also making an impact popping over two points (1 free). Further scores from Denis O’Neill and Pat Spillane from an acute angle made the score 9 points apiece after 45 minutes. Then a minute later the turning point in the game came when a long point effort from Sean Cournane made its way to the net, to put the Cahersiveen side in the ascendancy once again. Soon after St Mary’s got in for a second goal in a move that ended with Muiris Fitzgerald fisting the ball to the net from close range. Anthony Cournane added a late point for the hosts, before Adrian Spillane cut through the defence for a wonderful goal for Templenoe to bring proceedings to close.

Final Score: St Mary’s 2-10, Templenoe 1-9.


St Mary’s: Sean Cournane 1-3, Bryan Sheehan 0-3 (0-2f), Muiris Fitzgerald 1-0, Aidan Walsh 0-1, Liam O’Connell 0-1, Jack Daly 0-1. Anthony Cournane 0-1.

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 5-12, St Michaels/Foilmore 3-22

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane put on a very brave display but eventually lost out to St Michaels/Foilmore in the Final of the South Kerry U14 League. The match was played on a perfect Derrynane pitch on a dry evening but with a strong breeze which affected the play.

It proved to be a very high scoring match, with St Michaels/Foilmore who were playing against the wind starting the brightest. They kicked a number of eye catching points but Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane kept in touch by scoring three goals in the first half. St Michaels/Foilmore went in at the interval with a 2 point lead.

All expectations for the 2nd half was that St Michaels/Foilmore would pull away with the wind advantage, but a further two goals for Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane kept the score line very close. Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane went into the lead coming into the last 10 minutes but were twice pegged back. The last few minutes say St Michaels/Foilmore finally pull away by kicking four unanswered points.

This was a very exciting match and well done to both teams for putting on a fantastic display.

Division 1, County Senior Football League, Round 10.

Templenoe 2-13, An Ghaeltacht 0-16.

Templenoe hosted An Ghaeltacht in the penultimate round of the County league last Saturday evening, in what was also a repeat of last year’s County Intermediate Football Final. This time the result went Templenoe’s way after gutsy display saw the home side edge out the visitors by three points.

An Ghaeltacht who played with the assistance of the breeze in the first half opened the scoring through Tomas O’Se. However, the home side quickly demonstrated they were up for battle when they replied with two points from Teddy Doyle either side of a Killian Spillane effort, before both men subsequently combined to put Pat Spillane through for Templenoe’s first goal. This made the score 1-3 to 0-1 after just seven minutes of play. Three pointed frees from Dara O’Se gave hope to the West Kerry side, but Killian Spillane who was getting the better of veteran Marc O’Se responded with two points to maintain Templenoe’s advantage. An Ghealtacht though were now beginning to enjoy a purple patch and they soon started to reel in Templenoe’s lead with a brace of points courtesy of Franz Sauerland, Eanna O’Conchuir along with a few from the impressive Dara O’Se to cut Templenoe’s lead to just one point. In between An Ghaeltacht almost had a goal only for a fisted effort from Roibeard O’Se to come off the crossbar after a long ball in from Padraig O’Se. Yet at the same time, Templenoe did manage to keep the scoreboard ticking over for thanks to efforts from Killian Spillane and Denis O’Neill. The latter briefly restored Templenoe’s lead to two points, but the West Kerry side retained their momentum and added four more scores just before the break to give them a two points cushion, with Dara O’Se (3) and Roibeard O’Se splitting the posts.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-7, An Ghaeltacht 0-12

Templenoe used the half time break to regroup before going out to have a great opening twelve minutes to the second half. Two points from Killian Spillane preceded a second goal for Templenoe after a great solo run up the field by Teddy Doyle saw him open up An Ghaeltacht’s defence before giving a precision pass to Denis O’Neill who slotted the ball to the net. The home side went on to extend their lead with Josh Crowley Holland and full back Kieran O’Neill both getting forward to prove their scoring capabilities. This made the score 2-11 to 0-12 after 41 minutes. An Ghaeltacht popped over two much needed scores from Dara O’Se and Tomas O’Se either side of a Templenoe close range effort from Martin Reilly. Then a wonderful free from Teddy Doyle from over 45 yards sailed all the ways over the crossbar, following a foul on Stephen O’Sullivan. Templenoe were now in a strong position, but An Ghaeltacht were not done. With time running out An Gaeltacht launched a frantic attack which ended with Tomas O’Se been fouled just inside the square and the referee duly awarded a penalty, while Sean Sheehan picked up a black card for his endeavours. The resultant spot kick was well saved by keeper Anthony Sheehan and full back Kieran O’Neill was hand to divert the ball out for a 45 to prevent any rebound effort from the visitors. An Ghaeltacht continued to press, but the Templenoe defence were equal to the challenge, as the West Kerry side ultimately had to settle for two consolation points from Eanna O’Conchuir and Dara O’Se.

Final Score: Templenoe 2-13, An Ghaeltacht 0-16.


Templenoe: Killian Spillane 0-6 (0-1f), Denis O’Neill 1-1, Teddy Doyle 0-3 (0-2f), Pat Spillane 1-0, Josh Crowley Holland 0-1, Kieran O’Neill 0-1, Martin Reilly 0-1.

Renard 3-06, Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 5-09


They now advance to the final against St Michaels/Foilmore on Monday 30th July in Derrynane

Templenoe 0-6, Dingle 1-11.

A strong Dingle outfit proved too good for Templenoe last Saturday evening.

The hosts only lead once in the whole contest, when two points from Brian Crowley cancelled out the opening score from Brian Devane to make the score 0-2 to 0-1 after 6 minutes of play. Two minutes later a high ball in towards the goal from the West Kerry side was fisted to the net by full forward Barry O’Sullivan. Dingle never looked back from this and went on to add six more points before half time, compared to Templenoe’s one point in the same period. Niall Geaney, Tomas Sheehy, Brian Devane and Brendan Kelliher were among the scorers for Dingle, while Templenoe’s solitary white flag in this time came from Brian Crowley but Templenoe were also guilty of numerous wides in the first half.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-3, Dingle 1-7.

In the second half Dingle continued where they left off with three unanswered points courtesy of Mikey Geaney, Gavin H Curran (45) and Paul Devane to increase the margin to ten points. However, Templenoe soldiered on and did manage to bring the arrears back a bit with three points on the trot from Killian Spillane. That was as good as it got for Templenoe in the second half and there was no way the visitors were going to allow Templenoe to come in sight of them. Barry O’Sullivan rounded off proceedings with a point for Dingle.

Final Score: Templenoe 0-6, Dingle 1-11

Finally the club wishes a speedy recovery to Dingle’s Eoin Murphy and Brendan Kelliher who both picked up serious injuries.
