Currow – Randles Bros Nissan Dealers Junior C Champions


Congratulations to Currow who were crowned Randles Bros Nissan Dealers Junior C champions defeating Daingean Ui Chuis in the final, recently held in Keel. Currow on winning the toss elected to play with the strong wind in the first half & made great use with a good start with 2 quick points. Louise Nelligan bagged the first goal of the game as she finished a fantastic passing move to the net.  Daingean Ui Chuis brought themselves more into the game and began to dominate and scored the next 2 points, but the Currow mentors were alert t to the problems the West Kerry side posed & made positional changes which totally changed the flow of the game. Catherine and Roisin Daly took control of Midfield and Sheonagh and Margo Brosnan totally disrupted the Dingle Kick Out, and with Colleen Breen winning a huge amount of ball at full forward and running at the Dingle defence, the scores began to come for Currow with Roisin Daly (3), Noelle Scanlon (4), and Aoife Walsh all kicking Points before Louise Nelligan went on a darting run through the Dingle defence with 5 minutes to go to score a second goal. Half time score Currow  2-08 Daingean Ui Chuis 0-06. Despite playing against the wind for the second half it was the Currow girls that got the first score a point from a free.  However this served as a wakeup call for the West Kerry side who began to get on top again and went on a scoring spree adding 6 points without reply,  trailing by only 3 points with 15 minutes still to go in the game. Currow then had midfielder Catherine Cronin sin binned for 10 minutes for a yellow card offence.  But the Currow defence were resolute in their tackling with Kerrie McCarthy being the lynchpin as she kept the shackles on Aoife Geaney, ably assisted by Pataire Fleming and Maggie O’Sullivan.  Daingean Ui Chuis thought they had found the elusive goal only for Leona McEnery to pull off a wonderful save.  Catherine Cronin soon returned to action from her sin binning & Currow took control again & closed out the game adding 2 points to seal the win. Captain Louise Nelligan accepted the title from Nora Fealy Vice Chairperson Kerry Ladies on behalf of sponsor Randles Bros Nissan.  Final score Currow 2-11 Daingean Ui Chuis 0-14.
