Houlihan double gives Kerry the edge in Group 1.

TG4 ladies All-Ireland SFC Group 1

Sarah Houlihan captain v Tipp 14 July 18Sarah Houlihan action v Tipp 14 July 18

Kerry 3-13

Tipperary 2-10


Sarah Houlihan scored 2-3 as Kerry bounced back from their Munster final defeat to Cork to open Group 1 of the TG4 ladies All-Ireland seniorchampionship with victory over Tipperary at MacDonagh Park in Nenagh.

In the only all-Munster tie of the round robin series Eddie Sheehy’s side held a comfortable 2-9 to 1-3 lead at half-time. Houlihan and Andrea Murphy scored the first-half goals for them.

Roisin Howard scored Tipperary’s goal in the first-half and when Aisling Moloney did likewise after half-time they only trailed by four points. But Houlihan’s second goal made the difference for Kerry.

Tipperary lost the influential Jennifer Grant before throw-in and she was replaced by Lucy Spillane, while Samantha Lambert dropped deep in defence where she was used as a sweeper.

Both defences stifled their opposing attackers in the opening quarter. Aisling McCarthy kicked Tipperary’s first point after only 45 seconds but Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh equalised in the fourth minute.

Kerry raced into a 0-4 to 0-1 lead with Eilish O’Leary, Sarah Houlihan and Ni Mhuircheartaigh on target. Aisling Moloney had moved into full-forward and she scored twice to reduce the arrears for Tipperary.

And their goal arrived in the 21stminute. Moloney was central again, she set up Orla O’Dwyer and her pass put Howard through for the first goal. Tipperary were 1-3 to 0-4 ahead.

Ni Mhuircheartaigh and Houlihan levelled the game again in the 24thminute. And Kerry struck for a crucial goal shortly after. Centre-forward Ni Mhuircheartaigh passed to Houlihan and she showed her speed to apply the finish.

Murphy and O’Leary added further scores and on the half hour Houlihan’s long ball wasn’t dealt with by the Tipperary defence. Ni Mhuircheartaigh gathered possession and she assisted Murphy’s goal.

Amanda Brosnan rounded off the first half scoring with a fine effort and Kerry were 2-9 to 1-3 ahead at half-time. That lead was whittled down to 2-10 to 2-6 by the 39thminute.

McCarthy (two) and Moloney both scored points and then Moloney drove through the heart of the Tipperary defence to score a brilliant goal.

Houlihan scored Kerry’s second point of the half two minutes later and it was a vital score because Tipperary hit three in a row after that again. Gillian O’Brien scored twice off the bench but Kerry held on with Houlihan and Ni Mhuircheartaigh scoring again late on.

Scorers – Kerry: S Houlihan 2-3 (2f), L Ni Mhuircheartaigh 0-6 (3f), A Murphy 1-1, E O’Leary 0-2, A Brosnan 0-1

Tipperary: A Moloney 1-4, R Howard 1-1, A McCarthy 0-3 (1f), G O’Brien 0-2.

Kerry – L Fitzgerald; L Coughlan, S Murphy, E Lynch; D Kearney, A Desmond, A O’Connell; L Scanlon, A Brosnan; S Lynch, L Ni Mhuircheartaigh, A Foley; A Murphy, S Houlihan, E O’Leary.

Kerry And Cork Set For A Classic Battle At CIT.

TG4 Munster Championship Final 

CIT GAA Grounds Saturday 23rd June at 2pm. 

When the Kerry ladies walked off the pitch after their 2-16 to 1-6  Munster semi final victory over Waterford at Fitzgerald Stadium nearly 3 weeks ago they received a round of applause that they had never experienced before as senior inter county footballers. At that stage there was approximately 14,000 people gathered in the Killarney venue, and they stood as one to salute an excellent Kerry victory. 

To be fair, the majority of the Kerry supporters had come to catch the senior men’s game afterwards, but they appreciated the superb performance that the ladies had given on the day. A Garda escort to the grounds was something that the Kerry girls also experienced for the first time, whilst championship debuts for Laoise Coughlan, Emma Dineen, Siobhan Burns, Aoife O’Callaghan and Clodagh O’Connor heralded the dawning of a new era for this emerging Kerry side. 

It was the older more established players that stood out that day however, as Sarah Houlihan with a goal and nine points gave a player of the match display, while Lorraine Scanlon bossed the midfield exchanges with a towering performance. Andrea Murphy was also very prominent in the forward line, and scored a goal and two points, whilst debutant Dineen showed glimpses of the vast potential that the Glenflesk girl possesses. The only setback for Kerry on the day was a shoulder injury picked up by ace attacker Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh, which leaves her as a major doubt for the Munster final. Ni Mhuircheartaigh did a light training at Kerry’s base in Currans during the week, but a decision on her fitness won’t be made until the last minute. 

On the other side of the draw Cork were safely seeing off the challenge of the emerging Tipperary on a 2-12 to 1-10 scoreline. Tipperary, the 2017 All Ireland Intermediate champions, were hotly tipped by many to cause a surprise, but Cork showed all of their experience to see off their challenge. A spread of 8 different scorers on the day highlighted the threat that Cork possess throughout their team, with 5 of the 6 starting forwards getting their names on the scoresheet. Although many of the household names from Cork’s golden era have retired, they still have oceans of talent in their ranks with Orla Finn, Doireann O’Sullivan, Ashling Hutchings, Orla Farmer and Eimear Scally all top performers. 

Kerry manager Eddie Sheehy has been in the hot seat for a few weeks but he has already stampted his own particular style of play on the side. Sheehy believes in pacey attacking football, and the team certainly showed glimpses of his vision against Waterford in the second half. This allied to a high level of workrate throughout the side gives them a serious chance of retaining the title that they won in 2017. 

The victory over Waterford shouldn’t gloss over some of the fundamental problems that Kerry have however. Sheehy’s charges struggled with their restarts for a large portion of the first half in that game, and they seem to be overly reliant on a long kick out to Lorraine Scanlon in the middle of the field. With Ni Mhuircheartaigh a major doubt, it is also worrying that the attack has such a huge reliance on Sarah Houlihan to get their scores. The defence has also struggled in the past with teams that have run directly at them, although it must be said that they coped quite well with this tactic against Waterford. Sheehy has enlisted international basketball coach Liam Culloty to his backroom team, and his influence appears to be having a positive influence on Kerry’s defensive structure. Against Waterford the Kerry backline tackled in two’s and three’s, and time and again turned over the Deise attacks. Eilis Lynch, Aislinn Desmond and Aishling O’Connell were certainly to the fore in this regard and had excellent games for the Kingdom. Kerry have also adopted a zonal structure for opposition kick outs and it will be interesting to see how this tactic works against Cork. 

Kerry will need to be at full tilt if they are to retain their Munster title. Cork’s attack is lethal in possession, and their transition play is swift and dangerous. Kerry will have to stop their forward momentum high up the field if they hope to gain victory. There is change to be got from the Cork defence however, and in particular their full back line which appears to be their weakest link. If Scanlon and Amanda Brosnan can gain a foothold in the middle of the field then Kerry are in with a great chance. The hard working Eilish O’Leary is bound to help out in this sector as well, as she did to good effect in the Waterford game. 

There is no doubt that Cork will come into the game as hot favourites, especially playing in their home patch of CIT, which is bound to be an advantage. It can’t be overlooked either that Kerry had a disastrous National League campaign in which they finished pointless at the bottom of Division 1. Cork had a much better time of it and won 5 out of their 7 games before losing by 2 points to Mayo in the semi final. The championship is a different kettle of fish of course, and with the bounce that a new management team can bring, Kerry will be confident of lowering the Cork colours. 

Sean Walsh Elected As Kerry LGFA Chairman.

The Kerry Ladies GFA held their May County Board meeting at the Kerins O’Rahillys clubhouse on Thursday night and the big news to emerge was the election of Sean Walsh of Moyvane to the role of Chairperson. 

Walsh who is the former Chairman of Kerry GAA and Munster was proposed by Kieran Savage of the Ballymacelligott club and was seconded by Dave Randles of Killarney Legion. Mr Walsh’s election was met by a unanimous show of hands by all of the delegates present. 

In his opening Chairperson’s address Mr Walsh said that he wasn’t there to take over Kerry LGFA but instead he would help to put the structures in place that his experience had taught him. Mr Walsh was a member of the Kerry GAA executive for 30 years and served as Chairman for 10 of those. 

Walsh also stated that it was important that the County Board was not just about the people in the executive positions, but instead it was about ordinary club members who must do their bit to help out. He said that there was a massive amount of work being done by people in the background, but an awful lot more must be done for it to be truly successful. 

A number of measures the he proposed were the broadening of the fixtures committee so that the work load could be shared. He also felt that a communications committee needed to be put in place with a geographical spread of people in the county involved that could help. Mr Walsh also felt that a new finance committee needed to be formed as well as a defined development and coaching structure. 

Mr Walsh finished by saying that he hoped that he would receive the support of the people around the county and that he would give his new role his best shot. 

Meanwhile Donal Rahilly of Ballymacelligott moved from Assistant Secretary to the Secretary position, Debbie Hannon of Beale was elected to the Assistant Secretary position, Tomas O Hainifin of Abbeydorney was elected as Cultural Officer and Dan Kearney of Castleisland Desmonds was elected as PRO. 

New County Secretary Donal Rahilly said that he was looking forward to working with Sean Walsh. He said that Mr Walsh had already left a big impression on him with his ideas and ambitions for Kerry LGFA. Donal Rahilly also complimented clubs for the efficient running of their league games so far, and encouraged clubs to send in officers to the Club Officer training night to be held on the 15th May in ISK.He also said that 2019 would be a very exciting year for Kerry LGFA with the National Congress due to be held in the county. 

Finally Mr Rahilly congratulated the Kerry U/14’s for reaching the Munster Final, and he also wished the Kerry U/16’s and Kerry minors the best of luck in their Munster finals this weekend.

Kerry Ladies Football Elects A New County Executive.

Kerry Ladies Football held its reconvened EGM at Dr Crokes clubhouse Killarney on Thursday night, and a new County Executive was elected for 2018. The meeting was chaired by Munster Council president Anthony O’Brien. 

Mike Moriarity of Ballyduff is the new Kerry Ladies Chairman, whilst his clubmate Maurice Dunworth was elected into the Secretary position where he will be assisted by Donal Rahilly from the Ballymacelligott club. Anthony Curran of Ballymacelligott will take on the role of Treasurer.  Joe O’Flaherty of Finuge/St Senans will continue in his role as Registrar as will Donal O’Doherty of Spa as Development Officer. 

There was also a Fixtures Committee elected and the posts were taken by Batt McGlynn of Fossa, Donal O’Doherty of Spa, Selina Looney of Killarney Legion and Patrick White of Ballymacelligott. 

Karen McGlynn of Fossa and Billy Mangan of Castleisland Desmonds will act as Munster Council Delegates. There are still a number of roles to be filled including PRO, Cultural Officer and Child Protection Officer. 

In his opening address, new Chairman Mike Moriarity said that he hopes that clubs can now pull together for the sake of all the progress that has been made over the last number of years on the playing fields. Inter club rivalry should be put to one side, he said, and clubs have to stand as one to represent all that is good in Kerry Ladies football.
