Glenflesk’s ability to get goals at vital times proved the difference in this excellent Division 2 final played in Castleisland on Tuesday evening. In fairness to Kerins O’Rahilly’s they played very well but the Glenflesk sides ability to take their chances when they presented themselves ultimately guided them to the title.

Corca Dhuibhne claimed the Division 4 shield after an impressive victory over a spirited Killarney Lagion side at Castleisland last Tuesday night. Corca Dhuibhne were very strong throughout the field, and while the scoreline didn’t do justice to Legion’s efforts, the west Kerry girls had too many aces in their pack to be denied victory.
