Clounmacon/Moyvane take on Killarney Legion in the final of the Randles Bros Junior B Championship on Sunday 2nd September at Currans GAA Centre of Excellence at 1.30pm.
Both sides will really fancy their chances of lifting the title in this one as they’ve been showing some excellent form of late.
The Clounmacon/Moyvane team features a number of Kerry Camogie stars so they will certainly be fit and up for the task. Their captain Louise Horgan is a very solid full back and she will be helped by players like Sarah Breen and Ashlea Sheehy in what appears to be a very solid defence. Munster U18 rugby star Muirne Wall is bound to be very prominent at midfield alongside former Kerry minor Moira O’Flaherty, while up front Erin Finucane, Rebecca Horgan and Gillian Musgrave could do serious damage if given the opportunity.
Centra half back Sarah Leahy is the shining light in the Legion defence and the Kerry senior panelists pace could cause Clounmacon/Moyvane some problems. She will be helped by Zena Shine and Sonia Smith, whilst the midfield of Isabelle Corridan and Ellen Coffey form a very mobile unit. In the forwards Liz Mohan is Legion’s key player while Denise Lyne and Abbie Cronin will carry a major threat, The Legion bench is also very strong with Kerry minor Ciara Randles an excellent player, along with Kerry U16 players Tara Murphy and Kerri Ann Hanrahan.
This game is really difficult to predict a winner and there will only be a kick of a ball between the sides in the finish.
