"to all the kerry lads out there just wondering would any of ye know how many championship matches pat spillane played for kerry and how would ye rate him in the list of great kerry footballers"

dont know for sure how many championship matches he played for kerry but i would think around the 60 mark, well up there on the list of all time kerry greats tho. (greedy but great!)

Any other results from the County Championship lads? I think South Kerry hammered Dingle 1-16 to 0-06.

Laune Rangers 2-8 v Mid Kerry 1-11
Dingle 0-06 v South Kerry 1-15
Shannon Rangers 1-08 v Gaeltacht 4-15
Feale Rangers 0-13 v Ardfert 2-04
St.Brendans 1-03 v Kerins O'Rahilly 2-14
Austin Stack 0-08 - East Kerry 0-10

So Stacks are out, and Ardfert's amazing run comes to an end. Good win for Gaelteacht, but Shannon Rangers are muck.

Meant to post these results up yesterday but could not get near a PC.

Laune Rangers 2-8 v Mid Kerry 1-11
Jack O'Shea's son Aidan made a good appearance for Mid Kerry and they were unlucky not to beat the Rangers I hear. May not get the chance the next time.

Dingle 0-06 v South Kerry 1-15
Very one sided game with Ronan O'Connor, Paddy Curran, Ronan Hussey and Bryan Sheehan leading the scoring for South Kerry

Shannon Rangers 1-08 v Gaeltacht 4-15
too easy for An Ghaeltacht , Shannon have not produced good footballers in years.

Feale Rangers 0-13 v Ardfert 2-04
As AZ says their great championship run is over.
2005 Junior - Kerry, Munster and All Ireland Champions
2006 Intermadiate - Kerry, Munster and All Ireland Champions
2007 Senior - The step up to Senior is too much for them, but they will hold Senior status for next year.
Feale Rangers were led well by Noel Kennelly , PAul Galvin and Eamon Fitxmaurice.

St.Brendans 1-03 v Kerins O'Rahilly 2-14
St Brendans without their Ardfert players will not pose much of a threat to anyone, Rahilly's with last years minors David Moran and the Walsh brothers along with Declan Quill led the rout, will be a force in Kerry football in a few years time.

Austin Stack 0-08 - East Kerry 0-10
Shock of the round with Stacks big guns in Donaghy, Bohane and Kirby unable to raise the game.
Old bucks Seamus Moynihan and Donal Daly again to the fore for East kerry.

Kilcummin also won their game at the weekend over Kenmare, 0-16 to 1-11, While Dr Crokes beat their Killarney rivals Legion 1-16 to 0-09.

so the 1/4 finals will be made up of the following, draw not made yet:

South Kerry, Kerins O'Rahilly's, An Ghaeltacht, Dr Crokes, Kilcummin, Feale Rangers, East Kerry, and Laune Rangers or Mid kerry

Relegation Playoff 1
Rathmore 1-18 v 0-09 John Mitchels
So any suggestions on how Mitchells can be kept in the county championship for next year can be sent to The Pavillion, Austin Stack Park, Tralee, Co. Kerry.
They are a resourceful bunch in there but after losing 3 relegation playoff in 4 years they may finally have run out of ideas.
Quite simply they are not good eneough to be in the county championship today no matter how many titles they won in a row in the 60's.

Stacks defeat definately the shock of the round despite Donaghy played well when moved to midfield.
South Kerry still the team to beat but would love to see An Ghealtach have one last shot at it.

Mitchells have to go this year, its a joke, they have been playing up the "yerra we were great and have a great Tradition in Mitchels for years"

John Joe Sheehy would spin in his grave with the carry on.

They have been hammered for the last few years and will hopefully move down to Intermediate next year.

the Deel Rover - "to all the kerry lads out there just wondering would any of ye know how many championship matches pat spillane played for kerry and how would ye rate him in the list of great kerry footballers"

In an article in today's Kerry's Eye newspaper it states that Tomás O Sé's apperance for Kerry in the match against Waterford was his 50 Championship game for the Kingdom.  This makes him one of just 13 Kerryman to represent the county so frequently.  According to the same article Pat Spillane played 56 Championship games with the county.  Darragh O Sé is in second position with 63 games under his belt with Dan O' Keefe (Kerins O'Rahillys) at the top of the pile with 66 games.  This of course means that when Darragh O Sé walks onto the pitch for the final in September he will have represented our county more times than another Kerry footballer!!! ;) ;) 8)

Mike, I see you mentioned Jackos son lining out for Mid-Kerry, thought Jacko has been based in Leixlip for many years.
Just wondering if he has been sending the lad down to play with his club every weekend for years a la Declan Darcy with Leitrim

Stephenite I think (open to correction here) that Jacko's son moved down when he was 19 from Kildare. He is playing with Mid Kerry while Jacko's club were St Marys of Cahersiveen and he played with South Kerry. Not sure what he works at. Good footballer though.

To answer your questions, the ones I know of are:
Micko Dwyer - Karl won an All Star with Kildare
Tim Kennelly (RIP)  - sons Noel and Tadgh both have produced the goods at the highest level
Sean Walsh - sons Tommy and Barry John, minor stars for the future
Ogie Moran - son David Moran , minor last year
Charlie Nelligan son Dan is the Goalie with Kilmacud in Dublin I think
Jack O'Shea - son Alan O'Shea current senior player with Mid Kerry.
John Egan's son is an accomplished soccer player in Cork (dont know his name)
John Kennedy - son Eoin was a minor last year
Paidi's young lad is too young as is young Spillane , those poor lads will face some pressure from the sidelines

Cant think of any more of that team that have young lads playing.

Great draw - have a sneaky feeling that Crokes will do it this time.
Ghealtach nailed on I'd say - Tomas may remember his broken jaw from a few years ago against Listowel.
East Kerry and O'Rahillys to advance as well
=================================================================
The draw for the quarter-final of the Kerry SFC has pitted together some very interesting duels, not least the pairing of last years champions South Kerry and All-Ireland Club Championship finalists Dr Crokes.

The sides met in last years decider where South Kerry emerged victorious but, as they are a combination of club outfits, they were unable to take up their berth in the All-Ireland series and Dr Crokes reaped the dividends by advancing to the decider in which Crossmaglen prevailed after a replay.

An Ghaelthacht will be hot favourites to advance past Feale Rangers while Kerins O’Rahillys will have to wait until Mid Kerry and Laune Rangers play their replay before they find out what side they meet in the last eight.

The other quarter-final encounter sees Kilcummin looking to continue their rich vein of recent form against East Kerry.

There will be some skelping in the South Kerry v Crokes game, there was alot of nasty stuff that happened off field after last years county final and I am sure the South Kerry lads have stored away that for this year. Should be a great game with nothing much to call between the sides.

4 in a row was always goin to be tough to achieve for South Kerry but with Crokes providing a formidable quarter final obstacle it gets more difficult. Hopefully the lads from the South west will prevail.

An Ghaeltacht to beat Feale Rangers after a struggle and Rahillys and East Kerry also to advance I'd say.
Should make for an interesting championship run-in but alot will depend on the timing and when Kerry's run comes to a halt this year.
