Templenoe 1-16, St Michaels / Foilmoe 1-03

Templenoe ran out comfortable winners after they hosted St Michaels/Foilmore in round 2 of the South Kerry league last Sunday.

The game was played in wet conditions and both sides were slow to settle, with numerous possessions been coughed up in the early stages. Templenoe soon started to get on top around midfield and in the 6th minute they got off the mark with a pointed free from Cian Hallissey from the right wing. More scores followed for the home side with Cian Hallissey adding two more points (one free) to his tally, while Brian Crowley made no mistake with two frees from the left side.  St Michaels/Foilmore had to wait until the 24th of the match to register their first score, when their midfielder DJ Moran landed a 45 over the bar. The remaining minutes of the half saw Luke O’Shea convert a close in free for the visitors, before Brian Crowley (free) and John Rice restored the lead to five points for Templenoe.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-7, St Michaels/Foilmore 0-2

Templenoe hit the ground running in the second half with Danny Cahalane cutting through the defence for well taken score. St Michaels/Foilmore responded with a pointed free from DJ Moran. However, it was then when the home side really started to ramp up the scoring with John Rice, Cian Hallissey, Danny Cahalane (twice) and Brian Crowley all hitting the target to put Templenoe ten points ahead with 9 minutes remaining. Soon after veteran Shane Cremin who came in as sub, did well to finish the ball to the net after a long ball in from John Spillane for the game’s first goal. Stephen O’Sullivan (0-2) and John Spillane both raised white flags for Templenoe in the closing minutes, while St Michaels/Foilmore got in for consolation goal through Luke O’Shea.

Castleisland Mart Club Intermediate Football Championship Final

Templenoe 0-14, An Ghaeltacht 1-12

Templenoe came up just short, despite putting in a heroic shift in the Austin Stack Park last Sunday against a much fancied An Ghaeltacht side.

An Ghaeltacht started the brighter and indeed almost had a goal in the first minute with PJ. Mac Láimh forcing a save from Anthony Sheehan, but play was subsequently called back for an earlier infringement and Dara Ó Sé made no mistake with the free. The West Kerry side tagged on their second score in the 6th minute when Sean M O’Conchúir popped the ball over the bar from the right corner. It took 9 minutes for Templenoe to register their first score through a Killian Spillane free, after Brian Crowley was fouled. The Kenmare District side followed this up with two more points in quick succession from Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan to give them a slender lead. However, An Ghaeltacht responded promptly with two more Sean M O’Conchúir efforts (1 free) to restore their advantage, before Teddy Doyle levelled matters again towards the end of the first quarter to make score 0-4 to 0-4. Then in the 16th minute came the first and only goal of the game, which was to prove crucial in the finish, when An Ghaeltacht worked their way through the Templenoe defence in move that ended with Sean M O’Conchúir dispatching the ball to the net. To their credit, Templenoe did reply well to this with 2 more scores from Teddy Doyle and Killian Spillane (free) either side of a pointed free from Dara Ó Sé. Soon after PJ Mac Láimh raised another white flag for An Ghaeltacht, before Templenoe went close with two goal chances through Brian Crowley and Cian Hallissey only to see their efforts saved and hit the side netting respectively. The half ended with Dara Ó Sé  and Cian Hallissey trading frees to leave the score at the interval: Templenoe 0-7, An Ghaeltacht 1-7.

Templenoe started the second half quite well. Josh Crowley Holland had a goal bound shot saved from Tomas Mac an tSaoir, before Killian Spillane got the opening score of the half from a free, following a foul on Gavin Crowley. However, An Gaeltacht hit back with Brian O’Beaglaoich going on the attack twice to set up Dara Ó Sé  for two (1 free) more points. The game was really turning into an end to end contest at this stage. Killian Spillane swapped scores with PJ Mac Láimh before Stephen O’Sullivan split the posts after Teddy Doyle picked him out with a quick 45 to leave the score 0-10 to 1-10. Then in the 53rd minute Tomas Mac an tSaoir was called upon once again to deny another shot at goal from Josh Crowley Holland. Momentum was now with Templenoe, who were never going to give this game up without a fight and their subsequent determined play which included an inspirational block down from Tadgh Morley saw them level the scores thanks to points from Killian Spillane (free), Pat Spillane and Cian Hallissey to set up a nail biting finish. An Gaeltacht edged ahead again on the 60th minute with a well taken score from Substitute Gearoid Mac an tSaoir, but Templenoe remained composed with Tadgh Morley calmly lobbying the ball over the bar to tie the game up again. However, there was still a few minutes of injury time to play as both sides tried frantically for the winner and the ball soon broke An Gaeltacht’s way with PJ Mac Láimh getting in to fist the ball over the bar. Templenoe did have one final attempt at a score, but the West Kerry side got numbers back to prevent a fisted effort from Brian Crowley from going over and once An Gaeltacht regained control of the ball, they were able to close the game out by carefully guarding possession for the remaining seconds of the match.

Final Score Templenoe 0-14, An Ghaeltacht 1-12:


An Ghaeltacht:  S.M. O’Conchúir (1-3)(2F), D. Ó Sé (0-5)(4F), PJ. Mac Láimh (0-3), G. Mac an tSaoir (0-1).

Templenoe 1-12, Laune Rangers 2-6

Templenoe are through to the Intermediate final for the second year in a row after they overcame Laune Rangers by three points in a wet and windy Fitzgerald Stadium last Saturday.

Laune Rangers opened the scoring with a long range point from Peter Crowley after two minutes. However, Templenoe quickly settled and went on to get the next six points in a row. The first of these scores came from their captain Brian Crowley who showed good determination to pop the ball over the bar after his initial effort was blocked. Both midfielders Adrian Spillane and Sean Sheehan were next to get on the score sheet, before a good move involving Killian Spillane and Cian Hallissey put through Stephen O'Sullivan for their fourth point. Killian Spillane added two more points to leave the score Templenoe 0-6 Laune Rangers 0-1 after 17minutes. Then the Killorglin side finally started getting back into the game with more ball going into their forwards. Colm O'Shea converted a free in the 18th minute for their second point. Laune Rangers could have reduced the deficit further, but they squandered a few chances including a close in free. Nonetheless, the Mid Kerry side did have the final say in the half with another pointed free from Colm O'Shea. Half Time Score: Templenoe 0-6, Laune Rangers 0-3.

The second half turned out to be a bit of a roller coaster. Templenoe started the half brightly with a point from Killian Spillane, before Danny Cahalane blasted the ball over the bar to extend the Kenmare District side's lead. The next 10 minutes of the game belonged to Laune Rangers as they started to put the Templenoe defence under pressure. Mike Frank Russell landed a ball over the bar from way out for their first score of the half. Then Templenoe keeper Shane Cremin was called upon to make a great save from David Costello, after the Rangers opened up the Templenoe defence. However, Laune Rangers persistence soon paid off when their defender Patrick Carey broke through the Templenoe cover to dispatch the ball to the net for their first goal. Things got worse for Templenoe when Adrian Spillane had to leave the field with a shoulder injury. Momentum remained with Laune Rangers and they subsequently went ahead with points from Mike Frank Russell and Peter Crowley, to leave score 0-8, to 1-6 at the end of the third quarter. With the match now on a knife edge, Templenoe quickly worked the ball up the field in a move that ended with Josh Crowley Holland popping over a great point from a tight angle to level the scores. Then the all important goal for Templenoe came when a low shot from Pat Spillane took a slight defection to catch the goalie wrong footed. Shorty after Cian Hallissey split the posts to extend their lead. Laune Rangers though were not finished and high ball in from Mike Frank Russell bounced kindly for David Costello, who was on hand to fist the ball to net. This put the game in the melting pot once again, but Templenoe kept their composure and went on to close out the game with two more points from the boots of Cian Hallissey and Gavin Crowley.

Final Score: Templenoe 1-12, Laune Rangers 2-6.

County Senior Football League Division 1 Round 11:
Kerins O'Rahillys 2-12, Templenoe 2-14.
Templenoe rounded off their county league campaign with an away win over Kerins O'Rahilly's last Sunday. This was an entertaining game played in warm conditions. 
Templenoe started well and were ahead by 0-3 to 0-1 after 5 minutes with Brian Crowley, Stephen O'Sullivan and Teddy Doyle all hitting the target. Kerins O'Rahillys responded strongly with four unanswered points through the boots of Barry John Keane, Rory Molloy and two from Tom Hoare, which included a 45 from the latter. This put the home side one point in front at the end of the first quarter. Both sides had goal chances in between, with Anthony Sheehan making a good save from Barry John Keane, while Teddy Doyle had a goal bound effort denied by KOR Keeper Gary Kissane. Templenoe took the initiative again in the second quarter with Josh Crowley Holland and Stephen O'Sullivan popping over two points, before Brian Crowley split the posts through a fisted effort to put the visitors back in front. However, the first half ended with Tommy Walsh and Barry John Keane restoring the host's advantage with two well taken scores.
Half Time Score: Kerins O'Rahillys 0-7 Templenoe 0-6.
The second half began with Tommy Walsh extending the Tralee's side lead with another point, but Templenoe's response was immediate, when the lively Brian Crowley broke through the O'Rahilly's defence to neatly dispatch the ball to the top corner of the net for the visitor's first goal. Kerins O’Rahilly’s hit back with two scores from County star David Moran, but his withdrawal soon after was to prove a big blow for the home side. Templenoe now started to get on top around midfield and they made their dominance count with the next five scores in a row coming from Killian Spillane (0-2F), Cian Hallissey (0-2) and Adrian Spillane, to put them four points ahead at the end of the third quarter. Kerins O’Rahilly’s replied with two pointed frees from Barry John Keane to keep them in touch. However, the Kenmare District side then put their foot on the accelerator once more with well worked scores from Cian Hallissey and Killian Spillane to add to their tallies. With time almost up, Templenoe looked to have secured the win when substitute Pat Spillane drilled a low shot to the net, but to their credit Kerins O’Rahilly’s fought to the end and struck two goals through Gearoid Savage and Barry John Keane. However, there was time for no more as Templenoe came away with a deserved win.

South Kerry U14 League final Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane 3-16 Valentia/Skellig Rangers 3-9.

Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane qualifed for the final as a result of a 2 point vitory over St Marys in Cahirciveen on a 11 points to 9 scoreline.

Valentia/Skellig had a 8 point victory over Renard in the other semi final.

Valentia/Skellig  had beaten Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane by 2 points when the teams met earlier in the league they also won the toss for home venue.

So the stage was set for an exciting final and that's how it turned out.

Players from Templenoe involved were, Dara and Mark Casey, Michael and Ronan O Connor, Aidan and Ciarán Crowley, Adem and Senan Gull, Hugh Granville, Billy Noonan, Leon O' Sullivan, Ewan Higgans and Colin Hallissey.

Skellig/Valentia started strongly and took an early lead, but Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane thanks to the outstanding play of Mark Casey, Eoin Dwyer and Ewan Buckley in the backs Oisin Breen at midfield and team Captain Ruairi Burns in the forwards drew level midway through the first half. However,just before half time, a goal for Skellig/Valentia left them leading at half time 1-6 to 0-5. On the resumption, strong play by Michael O Connor and Colin Hallissey in the backs, Adem Gull and Hugh Granville in midfield saw the lead reduced to 2 points. Yet, a goal mid way through the second half from Skellig/Valentia left Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane with a 5 point deficit. However, a storming finish with Aidan Crowley to the fore and Dara Casey making a number of outstanding saves along with the hard working Jim Clifford and Simon O Connor  helped Templenoe/Sneem/Derrynane score 2-7 in the last 8 minutes, defeating Skellig/Valentia by 7 points.


Rathmore 4-05, Templenoe 0-20

Templenoe came away from Rathmore with two very valuable County League points in a very exciting match played on a dry but very breezy Friday evening.

Templenoe played with the wind in the first half, and got their first score when an early long ball hopped in the square and was added to by Patrick Clifford for a point. Rathmore replied with a free soon after wards, but Templenoe went on to kick four more points in the opening ten minutes. This good spell for Templenoe was halted on the 12th minute when Daniel O’Sullivan scored a goal for the home side, but Templenoe recovered and kicked another brace of points from the boot of Stephen O’Sullivan and Gavin Crowley.

The score on the 20th minute was Rathmore 1-01, Templenoe 0-06, and despite the Templenoe dominance, Rathmore took the lead when a great individual effort by John Moynihan resulted in another goal. Templenoe again gathered themselves, and pointed another four in a row through Brian Crowley, Danny Cahalane, Teddy Doyle and Stephen O’Sullivan to retake the lead. The final minute of the half saw both teams swap a point each leaving the half time score Rathmore 2-02, Templenoe 0-11.

With Rathmore playing with the wind in the second half, the visitors expected to be under more pressure but Templenoe scored the opening two points after the interval. This again gave a comfortable lead of five points but Rathmore responded with a goal by full forward, John O’Keeffe. The intensity of the match started to build up but Templenoe were winning enough ball around midfield to continue to set up attacks. Stephen O’Sullivan pointed a free which was cancelled out by a Brendan O’Keeffe free for Rathmore.

Templenoe added three more points to their tally to again put daylight between the teams, but on the 20th minute Rathmore scored their fourth goal of the match when Donal O’Sullivan slotted home a penalty. This left the scoreline, Rathmore 4-03, Templenoe 0-17 with ten minutes remaining.

John Moynihan kicked a point to reduce the arrears to the minimum, but a lot of the attacks by the home side were being broken up due to some great individual Templenoe defending and a number of important interceptions helped. Templenoe pulled away in the last five minutes with points from Brian Crowley, Killian Spillane and Stephen O’Sullivan. There was a few minutes of injury time played, but despite Rathmore pressing for a goal, Templenoe held out as victors on a score of Rathmore 4-05, Templenoe 0-20

Templenoe Scorers: Stephen O’Sullivan 0-07, Brian Crowley 0-03, Teddy Doyle 0-03, Patrick Clifford 0-02, Gavin Crowley 0-01, Killian Spillane 0-01, Danny Cahalane 0-01, Cian Hallissey 0-01, Adrian Spillane 0-01

Division 1, County Senior Football League, Round 9.
John Mitchels 1-13, Templenoe 4-11
Templenoe recorded their 3rd win in the County league by defeating John Mitchels in the John Mitchels GAA Grounds last Sunday.
Stephen O’Sullivan opened the scoring with a point from play for Templenoe. Then the Mitchels responded with four unanswered points thanks to two frees from Alan O’Donoghue and James Duggan, before Alan O’Donoghue and Michael Wrenn added two more scores from play. The sides were soon level however, with Danny Cahalane, Brian Crowley and Patrick Clifford all hitting the target for Templenoe. John Mitchels centre back Laurence Bastible briefly restored their lead with a point, but the Kenmare District side immediately replied with both Cian Hallissey and Teddy Doyle raising white flags.  The Tralee men hit the front again with a well taken goal from Shane O’Connor, but it was the visitors that went on to dominate the remainder of the half. Martin Reilly scored their first goal in the 26th minute before Stephen O’Sullivan and Martin Reilly followed this up with a point each to add to their tallies. Then, shortly before the half time whistle Killian Spillane extended Templenoe’s lead with their second goal to put them in a commanding position. Yet, there was time for one more Mitchels point through George Bastible to leave the score at the interval: John Mitchels 1-6 Templenoe 2-9.
John Mitchels started the 2nd half brightly with Shane O’Connor, Alan O’Donoghue and Stevie O’Mahony all splitting the posts, before James Duggan converted a 45 to reduce the margin to just two points. The turning point in the match came in the 43rd minute, when Templenoe were awarded a penalty after the Mitchels keeper Dermot Raggett fouled Brian Crowley. The aforementioned Brian Crowley made no mistake with the spot kick. Soon after the home side were dealt another blow, when Martin Reilly struck for his second and Templenoe’s fourth goal to put them eight points ahead. The visitors went on to add two more points from Brian Crowley and Killian Spillane in the final quarter, while Laurence Bastible, Alan O’Donoghue and James Duggan (free) popped over three points for the Mitchels in the same period to leave the final score John Mitchels 1-13, Templenoe 4-11.

Division 1 County Senior Football League Round 8.

Templenoe 0-7, Dr Crokes 0-12.

Templenoe hosted the All Ireland Club Champions in a match played in wet and misty conditions last Saturday evening.

Dr Crokes who played with the wind in the first half raced into a four point lead with scores from Kieran O'Leary and Colm Cooper, before Daithi Casey added two frees. During this time, Templenoe were struggling to find a way through the Crokes defence and had numerous attacks intercepted, before Martin Reilly eventually opened their account with a point from close range in the 11th minute. The visitors then extended their lead with both midfielders Paul Clarke and Alan O'Sullivan splitting the posts to put them 0-6 to 0-1 ahead at the end of the first quarter. The latter almost followed this up with a goal, but his shot rocketed against the crossbar. However, the Crokes maintained control and soon after the evergreen Colm Cooper and Paul Clarke popped over two more points to add to their tallies. Yet Templenoe did finish the half well with Teddy Doyle successfully landing two 45's over the bar to leave the half time score Templenoe 0-3, Dr Crokes 0-8.

The home side started the second half brightly with a great score from a tight angle through Brian Crowley. With the drizzle getting heavier, Dr Crokes replied with a well taken point from their corner back Brian Fitzgerald. However, Templenoe continued to rally and in the 8th minute Stephen O'Sullivan was put through on goal, only to be fouled just outside the box. Brian Crowley converted the resultant free. Then Killian Spillane added another free to put just a goal between the sides midway through the second half. There was no way though, that Dr Crokes the masters of ball retention were going to let this game slip. Their patient play saw them tag on three more points through the boots of Shane Doolan, Daithi Casey and David O'Leary to close out the game, before Killian Spillane got a consolation score for Templenoe.

Final Score: Templenoe 0-7, Dr Crokes 0-12.

Templenoe 1-08, Firies 2-14

Templenoe came out second best in a very well contested final of Division 2 of the East Kerry Super League. The match was played at a very fast pace on a dry evening for football, with Firies being more clinical in front of the pasts. Their two goals came at important times, with the second arriving with fifteen minutes remaining in the match killing off any hope of a Templenoe comeback.

Templenoe 4-10, Austin Stacks 1-16.

An injury time goal from Stephen O’Sullivan sealed a hard earned win for Templenoe in a match played in ideal conditions in Templenoe last Saturday evening. This game ebbed and flowed all through and could have gone either way.

The home side playing with a slight breeze got off to a dream start with a goal from Brian Crowley, who drilled a low shot to the net, giving goalkeeper David Hennessey no chance. However, Austin Stacks hit back with 4 unanswered points all from play through David Mannix, Alan Duggan, Shane O’Callaghan and Jack O’Shea, to put the visitors 1 point in front. Templenoe squandered a few chances, before a Danny Cahalane shot from way out took a bounce to the take the ball all the way over the crossbar. David Mannix and Stephen O’Sullivan (free) exchanged scores to leave the sides level after 15 minutes. Then Killian Spillane (free) and Cian Hallissey both raised white flags for Templenoe, but these points were cancelled out by Alan Duggan and Jack O’Shea efforts for the Tralee men. Then Stacks foward Fiachna Mangan got inside the Templenoe full back line and despatached the ball to the roof of the net from close range, to give them a 3 point advantage. To their credit the home side responded strongly with well taken scores from Stephen O’Sullivan and Brian Crowley (0-3) to give Templenoe a slender lead at the break.

Half Time Score: Templenoe 1-8, Austin Stacks 1-7.

Austin Stacks opened the scoring in the 2nd half with 2 pointed frees from David Mannix either side of a score from Jack Morgan who split the posts after making a great solo run up the field. The home side went close for goal twice, before the visitors stretched their lead with an impressive third point from their centre back Jack O’Shea. However, Templenoe eventually did get their second goal in a move involving John Rice and Sean Sheehan who put Stephen O’Sullivan through to finish superbly.  However, Stacks replied with scores from Mikey Collins and David Mannix before Josh Crowley Holland pounced to fist a high ball into the net from a Teddy Doyle free for a crucial goal to the home side. Yet again Austin Stacks kept their composure and hit back with Darragh O’Brien and Jack O’Shea both landing the ball over with bar to give the away side a 1 point lead coming into the closing minutes. But with the match in the melting pot, it was Templenoe that got on top when it mattered most and they pressed home with points from Killian Spillane (free) and Brian Crowley, before the ever dangerous Stephen O’Sullivan sealed the match with an injury time goal. Austin Stacks did respond with one more pointed free, but Templenoe despite losing Teddy Doyle to a second yellow card, held on for a much needed second county league win.

Final Score: Templenoe 4-10, Austin Stacks 1-16.
