The Desmond’s senior men’s team will host St.Mary’s of Caherciveen on Saturday July 22nd at 7:30pm in the Kerry county league.
We played the same team in the quarter final of the county intermediate championship on April 30th so hopefully we will have better luck this time.
Last Saturday evening Desmond’s played Kerins O’Rahillys in the county league in Strand Road Tralee with a very under strength team.
They went in at half time losing by 1-7 to 0-8 after playing with a strong wind. Unfortunately ended up losing the game on the score of 3-14 to 13pts.
Well done to all of the players who travelled on the evening.
Desmond’s team on the night was: Ciaran Breen, Gearoid Leonard, Pa White, David Lynch, Shane O’Connell, Barry Lynch, Eamon McLoughlin, Kieran Brennan, Pat Fitzgerald, Cian Hickey O’Connor, Colm Murphy, Graham O’Connor, Stephen Bartlett, Thomas Hickey, captain; Sean Prendiville. Subs: John Begley and Cian O’Connor.
Team management: Mark Bourke and Domo Lyne, team attendant, Gerard Murphy.
