Kilkerrin United 

Kilkerrin United lost 3-2 to Castlerea Celtic in the RDFL Premier Division on Friday night in Kilkerrin. Kilkerrin got off to a flying start when Oisín McGann’s first minute cross took a deflection and found its way to the net to give the home side the lead.

Castlerea dominated position and it took some fine saves from Eoin Martin to preserve the lead. The visitors eventually equalised from a free-kick on 32 minutes.

Playing into the elements in the second half, Kilkerrin defended stoutly and again had Eoin Martin to thank for keeping them in the game as he saved a Castlerea penalty.

Substitute Kieran Gannon took full advantage of an opening with eight minutes remaining to give Kilkerrin the lead with a fine shot from 30 yards. The jubilation was short-lived however, as Castlerea scored twice in stoppage time to take all three points.

Next up for Kilkerrin is an away game against Dysart on Sunday at 2pm.

Well done to Kilkerrin United U18 boys who won the RDYSL Premier Division Cup Final in style on Saturday evening last with a 6-1 victory over Moylough ’79. Oisín Hynes (2), Kevin Traynor, Evan Fahy, Brian McDermott & David Madden were all on target while Martin Fahy saved a first half penalty.

Congratulations to the players & management on an excellent victory to round off a fine season.

Congratulations to Kilkerrin-Clonberne Ladies Football team on their Connacht Final win.
