Note: There was a blanket cancellation of Sunday’s games because of the weather.
Note: Killarney Celtic beat St. Michael’s 1-0 away on Sunday in the Munster League Champions Trophy semi-final with an injury-time goal and so they will provide the opposition for Rathkeale in the Final. There is no date fixed yet. The final will take place at a Kerry venue but not Killarney Celtic’s home ground.
Sunday results should be phoned in as soon as possible after the match but not later than 4.30 and the same applies to Saturday Youths games.
In the event of Cup games going to extra-time, results should be phoned in immediately after the match. The results of evening matches should be phoned in immediately after the match. As usual, the person to ring is Frank Nelligan and the number is 068-31386, rather than the mobile number.
Please include details of scorers if leaving a message on the answering machine. It is the responsibility of the home team to phone in results and failure to do so within the time required will result in a fine being imposed.
