COVID-19 Return to play

posted 31 Dec 2020, 09:31 by Laune Rangers

2020 was a year like no other.  Covid-19 brought the world to a standstill in March, but we were able to bring back some football in July.  Of course, this presented challenges never experienced before, as the club had to bring in Covid supervisors and co-ordinators to help keep everyone safe during return to play.  The Club wishes to thank everyone that put their shoulders to the wheel to get us back on the field.  We hope that we can do the same in the near future as we hope a post-Covid world isn't too far away.

We would also like to acknowledge the grant aid that covered PPE, hand sanitizer and signage, which was provided by the COVID-19 Emergency Fund & Dept of Rural and Community Development.  This aid was crucial to help us make JP O'Sullivan Park safe to play football for the Boys & Girls in blue.

LOTTO: With the Level 5 restrictions announced Monday evening, our Lotto will not take place over the coming weeks.

KERRY: Well Done to the Kerry Seniors who made a winning return to play in Monaghan on Saturday, especially our own Peter Crowley who made his first appearance in a Kerry jersey since March 2019. Best of Luck to the team in Saturday’s home game against Donegal, where a win would secure the NFL Division 1 title. The Kerry Under 20s were less fortunate in their All Ireland Semi Final loss to Galway. Commiserations to the team, especially our own David Mangan who was introduced late on.

CLUB SEASON OVER: The final training sessions for Under 6, Under 8 & Under 10 Boys on Sunday last and Girls on Wednesday evening brought our Club’s Bórd na nÓg activity to a close for the 2020 season. In a year that brought challenges like never before, we thank all the coaches who gave so generously of their time throughout lockdown and through the season on the field. We thank the parents who made it possible to continue coaching at home and went to such effort to get the players onto the field and, along with the Covid Supervisors, made sure our players remained safe throughout the season. Finally, and most importantly, we thank the players who were so patient and enthusiastic for all of 2020. We look forward to seeing everyone back in 2021 in hopefully a post-Covid world. The Level 5 restrictions announced on Monday evening saw the announcement by Kerry GAA that all Club matches are cancelled for the remainder of 2020.

MERCHANDISE: Laune Rangers merchandise is now available to buy directly from the O’Neill’s website. Click here to view the full range.

LEVEL 5: Now that the country has gone into Level 5 restrictions, it will make things much harder for sections of our community as the winter draws in – especially with the clocks changing on Saturday night next. The restriction of movement to 5km means that many people might be isolated from family who don’t live locally. With this in mind, Laune Rangers are looking to create a network of volunteers who have the wherewithal to be able to carry out tasks like picking up groceries or prescriptions, or even to give a knock on the door of a neighbour to (safely) see how they are keeping – it may be the only face that person may see in the day. If you are in a position to make yourself available to do any of these tasks, or indeed if you would like us to carry out such a service for yourself or a family member, email pro.launerangers.kerry@gaa.ie to let us know.

LAST LAUNE STANDING: Well Done to James Lynch who won Game 1 of ‘Last Laune Standing’. Game 2 begins on October 31st – Click here for details

The Under 12 Girls team and coaches following their County League Division 3 B Final win on Sunday afternoon

LOTTO: Lotto Results for Monday, October 5th 2020. There was no winner of the €9,000 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 11 – 16 – 21 – 24. The Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 John Cronin – sold by Margaret Galvin; €50 Mary Clifford, Muingaphuca – sold online; €25 Helen O’Sullivan Murphy – sold online; €25 Matthew Cahill – sold by Pat Cahill. The next Lotto Jackpot will be €9,200. Due to the government announcement on Monday evening introducing Level 3 restrictions, we have decided to put our Lotto on hold for the next 3 weeks – we are unable to conduct the draw with indoor gatherings not permitted.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers bowed out of the County Intermediate Championship at the Quarter Final stage as wasted chances ultimately proved costly against competition favourites Spa in Austin Stack Park on Saturday evening – James Devane proving the hero for the Killarney men at the end with his third point-black save at the final kick of the game. Laune Rangers handed a full Championship debut to Stephen Sealy, who was one of nine U21s in the Killorglin starting team – 8 U20s plus team captain Fiachra Clifford. Spa were without talisman Liam Kearney but fielded an otherwise strong side. Laune Rangers kicked the game’s first point through John Tyther, before Dara Moynihan scored what was ultimately a crucial goal in the 4th minute – the County star capitalizing on a turnover 50 metres from goal before driving through the defence and slotting the ball under Jason Browne and a couple of defenders. John Tyther scored a second point from a similar position to his first before Spa took control – Shane Cronin, Niall O’Mahoney (2) & Mike Foley scoring to put the Killarney side leading by 1-4 to 0-2 at the first half water break. Mike Foley pointed a free before Fiachra Clifford slotted a free of his own, while David Spillane added another point for Spa at the other end. Rangers missed a host of chances in the second quarter, kicking five wides and dropping a further two into James Devane’s hands, but they were presented with a chance to get back in the game late in the half, as Eoin Clifford put a great pass into Gearóid Hassett who was left one-on-one with Devane. However, the Spa ‘keeper made a great save to deny Hassett, although Fiachra Clifford kicked a late point to leave 5 points between the teams at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-4, Spa Killarney 1-6. A Dara Moynihan point was book-ended by two John Tyther frees in the early minutes of the second half, while Niall McCarthy and Evan Cronin added points to a much more clinical Spa’s tally to leave them leading 1-9 to 0-6 at the second half water break. John Tyther (free) and Gearóid Hassett reduced the deficit to four points for Rangers, before Mike O’Donoghue pointed for Spa to ensure Laune Rangers would need two goals in injury time. A great move by Rangers put Peter Crowley through on goal, but James Devane pulled off a great save to force the ball out for a 45’. The resulting dead ball kick led to chaos in the square, and Dáire Cleary was on hand to tap the loose ball to the net from close range to put the game in the balance. Laune Rangers were all out on the attack, and were presented with one final chance in injury time with a great move up the right flank, but Roan Moriarty’s shot was stopped yet again by James Devane – a shot that turned out to be the final kick of the game. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-8, Spa Killarney 1-10. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Seán Arthurs, Conor Murphy, Kieran Crowley, Eoin Clifford, David Mangan, Peter Crowley, Stephen Sealy, Jack O’Connor, Mark O’Connor, Fiachra Clifford (0-2, 1f), Shane McSweeney, Dáire Cleary (1-0), John Tyther (0-5, 3f), Gearóid Hassett. Subs used: David Costelloe for McSweeney, Patrick Carey for Sealy, Roan Moriarty for M O’Connor, Shane Daly for J O’Connor, Seán Cleary for E Clifford.
