County Senior Football League - Division 1 Match Report

Austin Stacks 1-9

An Ghaeltacht 3-8

Gaeltacht kept their chances of reaching the County League final very much alive with this five points win in a rainy Connolly Park on this Sunday afternoon.  On the other hand the result sends Austin Stacks down to division 2 for the 3rd time in their County League history.

Coming up to half time the sides could not be separated (0-4 each) but in the 30th minute Dara Ó Sé raced through the Stacks' defence for a brilliant goal. Stacks did get a point back in added time to leave the West Kerry boys ahead by two at the break (1-4 to 0-5).

Seven minutes after the resumption they had extended that lead to six points with a point from play by Éanna Ó Conchúir and a second Dara Ó Sé goal, this time from the penalty spot.

However Stacks worked their way back into game and in the next ten minutes had drawn level again with a well-worked goal by team captain, Shane O’Callaghan and points from Mannix, Ryan and Bohan.

That was as good as it got, however, for the home side as they managed just one more point in the final quarter while An Ghaeltacht went on to score three more points and a last minute goal from wing-back, PJ Mac Láimh.


Austin Stacks: Shane O’Callaghan (1-1), Alan Duggan (0-3), David Mannix (0-3 frees), Seán Ryan (0-1), Daniel Bohan (0-1)

An Ghaeltacht: Dara Ó Sé (2-2 – one penalty goal), PJ Mac Láimh (1-1), Seán Ó  Gairbhí (0-2), Éanna Ó Conchúir (0-2), Máirtín Ó Gormáin (0-1).

Referee: Donal Casey (Scartaglin).
