MID KERRY MINOR FINAL: Laune Rangers face Beaufort in the Mid Kerry Minor Final. The game takes place on Sunday next, December 8th at 2pm in Glenbeigh.

CLUB AGM: the Annual General Meeting of Laune Rangers GAA Club took place on Saturday evening last. The position of Insurance Officer was vacated by Brian O’Shea, who has given huge effort in the role during his term. The role was filled by Lawrence Laide, who will combine the job with his current position of Registrar in 2020. Laune Rangers GAA would like to sincerely thank Mary Clifford for her whole-hearted and continued efforts in running Scór in the Club. Mary has indicated her intention to step down as Scór Officer after a long and distinguished stay. Mary has done trojan work over many years in the promotion of Scór within the Club and beyond and on behalf of the Executive committee, and no doubt all those involved in Laune Rangers GAA, we thank Mary for her commitment to Scór and wish her all the best for the future.


SENIOR: Milltown/Castlemaine were crowned Mid Kerry Senior Champions on Sunday afternoon with defeat of Laune Rangers by the narrowest of margins. An early Fiachra Clifford pointed free opened the scoring but Milltown were level soon after when Cathal Moriarty tapped over. Rangers scored points through Fiachra Clifford (2, 1f) and Pa Carey – the latter a shot that flashed over the bar when on another day could have snuck under it. Jonathan O’Sullivan pointed one back before Milltown/Castlemaine took the lead – Cathal Moriarty netting from the penalty spot after being fouled in the square by Shane McSweeney. With fifteen minutes played, Milltown/Castlemaine lead by 1-2 to 0-4. Milltown had the upper hand for the middle part of the first half and , while Donal Dennehy and Jonathan O’Sullivan points were cancelled out by John Tyther and Shane Doona respectively, Milltown/Castlemaine scored their second goal when Cathal Moriarty hit an excellent finish to the top corner. This goal put Milltown four ahead but Rangers finished the half strongly. Points by Fiachra Clifford (2, 1f), Darragh O’Sullivan, Kieran Doona & Jason Browne (free) were met by points at the other end by Dylan O’Neill and Jonathan O’Sullivan to see Milltown go into the break in the lead by the minimum. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-11, Milltown/Castlemaine 2-6. Two more Fiachra Clifford points (1 free) put Rangers into the lead in the early stages of the second half but points from Jonathan O’Sullivan, Cathal Moriarty & Kieran O’Carroll left Milltown ahead by two with a quarter to play – Laune Rangers 0-13, Milltown/Castlemaine 2-9. The game’s key moment came in the 46th minute when Shane McSweeney received his marching orders for a second yellow card when he was deemed to have fouled David Roche in a collision just after the referee’s whistle was blown. Cathal Moriarty pointed twice (1 free) to extend his side’s lead to four. The 14 youngsters of Laune Rangers kept trying and pointed through Fiachra Clifford (free) as well as Carey brothers Pa & Johnny to reduce the gap to one, and two late attempts to level the game came up short. The final whistle was blown to give Milltown/Castlemaine the win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-16, Milltown/Castlemaine 2-11. Even though Laune Rangers contested the 2018 decider, five of Sunday’s starting team were lining out in the Senior Final for the first time, with aged 20 or younger. The defeat marks the end of the season for the Seniors, with Intermediate status secured and County League promotion gained in 2019. The Club wish to thank all of our players for their efforts in the season, as well as our management of Tim Fleming, Mark O’Connor, Eoin Corkery & Pa Sheehan. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne (0-1f), David Costelloe, Seán Arthurs, David Mangan, Cormac Johnston, Shane McSweeney, Patrick Carey (0-2), Jack O’Connor, John Tyther (capt, 0-1), Mark O’Connor, Kieran Doona (0-1), Darragh O’Sullivan (0-1), Fiachra Clifford (0-8, 5f), Roan Moriarty, Shane Doona (0-1).

MID KERRY SENIOR FINAL: Laune Rangers will face Milltown/Castlemaine in the Mid Kerry Senior Championship Final. The game will take place on Sunday next, December 1st at 2pm in Glenbeigh. We would love to see a huge crowd out to support the team on Sunday and to get your blue and white colours out on display around the parish for the week.

CLUB AGM: the Annual General Meeting of Laune Rangers GAA Club takes place on Saturday next, November 30th at 8:15pm in our clubrooms in JP O’Sullivan Park. All members are encouraged to attend.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers will ply their trade in Division Three of the County Senior Football League in 2020 following victory over Finuge in a promotion playoff on Sunday afternoon. The game was played in terrible conditions in Ballymacelligott, with an unchanged Rangers side – with eight U20s in the starting team – playing against a strong breeze in the first half. It was the 7th minute before the game’s first score, a great point from long range from Finuge’s Pat Corridan. Rangers took the lead in the 12th minute with a goal – Roan Moriarty reacting quickest to a rebounding ball off the crossbar to catch and finish to the roof of the net. With fifteen minutes played, Rangers led by 1-0 to 0-1. David Mangan scored a super point for Rangers to increase their lead but two Darragh Mackessey frees were pointed to leave the minimum between the sides at the break. This may have been different but for excellent saves by both goalkeepers – Jason Browne stopping a shot by Finuge before their last pointed free and Fiachra Clifford forcing Killian Fitzgerald into a point blank save at the other end. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-1, Finuge 0-3. The game was won by Rangers with a dominant display in the third quarter with the breeze at their backs. Jason Browne pointed a 45 before Kieran Doona made use of the breeze to score an excellent free, following it up with a fantastic point from distance and another free as Rangers pulled away. Fiachra Clifford, Roan Moriarty & David Mangan all scored excellent points to leave Laune Rangers leading by 1-8 to 0-3 with a quarter to play. Possibly with one eye on next week’s Mid Kerry Final, Rangers made a number of changes in the final quarter. John Tyther added his name to the score sheet with another long-range point, but that would be Rangers final score of the game. A pointed free by Pat Corridan ended a 27 minute spell without a score for Finuge before the North Kerry men scored a late consolation goal as Laune Rangers held possession for the final minutes to take the win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-9, Finuge 1-4. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne (0-1, 45), David Costelloe, Seán Arthurs, David Mangan (0-2), Cormac Johnston, Shane McSweeney, Patrick Carey, Jack O’Connor, John Tyther (capt, 0-1), Mark O’Connor, Kieran Doona (0-3, 2f), Darragh O’Sullivan, Fiachra Clifford (0-1), Roan Moriarty (1-1), Shane Doona. Subs: Shane Daly for O’Sullivan, Daragh O’Connor for S Doona, Colm O’Shea for Clifford, Jonathan Carey for McSweeney, Colm O’Mahony for Costelloe, Cian O’Shea for M O’Connor.

Laune Rangers came out on top against Beaufort in the Mid Kerry Senior Championship Semi Final on Saturday afternoon. Read more below!

LOTTO: Lotto Results for Sunday November 17th 2019. There was no winner of the €5,000 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 04 – 11 – 13 – 21. The Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 Elaine Griffin - sold online; €50 Eugene Dullaghan – sold by Pat Cahill; €25 Mary Clifford - sold by Margaret Browne; €25 Brendan O'Neill - sold by Pat Pigott. Next week’s Lotto Jackpot will be €5,200.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers will contest the Mid Kerry Senior Championship Final following victory over Beaufort in the Semi Final played in Pete Coughlan Park, Beaufort on Saturday afternoon. The home side were seen as strong favourites going into the game, as Laune Rangers were without a number of senior players through injury – Dáire Cleary, Conor Murphy & Patrick Daly all joining Peter Crowley and Mikey O’Sullivan on the treatment table, while the game came too soon for Shane Daly and Johnny Carey who had to make do with a place on the bench. This, of course, gave the chance to a number of fringe players and the Killorglin side began with no fewer than eight U20 players including three Minors. Laune Rangers had the perfect start, hitting the net for a goal in the opening minute – Roan Moriarty tapping a loose ball to the net – and this was followed by an excellent point by captain John Tyther. A second goal was nearly added but Seán Coffey saved from Fiachra Clifford, pushing the ball out for a 45’ which was duly pointed by Rangers ‘keeper Jason Browne to give the visitors a five point lead after just three minutes. Ciarán Kennedy scored the first point for Beaufort but this was cancelled out by Mark O’Connor for Rangers within a minute. Kennedy pointed again as Beaufort were beginning to get some footing in the game, but Darragh O’Sullivan got himself on the scoreboard for the away side to leave Laune Rangers leading by 1-4 to 0-2 with fifteen minutes played. As he had in the first quarter, Ciarán Kennedy continued to keep his side in the game with another point but Rangers found another purple patch, scoring seven successive points in as many minutes – Kieran Doona (3, 2 frees), Fiachra Clifford (free), Roan Moriarty as well as another 45’ and a long range free by goalkeeper Jason Browne. Beaufort had a strong finish to the half, beginning with a a goal from the penalty spot scored by Ciarán Kennedy. Kieran Doona pointed a free for Rangers & Fergal Hallissey slotted two frees for Beaufort to leave Laune Rangers leading by seven at the break. Half Time Score:- Beaufort 1-5, Laune Rangers 1-12. Beaufort began brightly after the restart, with Fergal Hallissey and Liam Carey scoring good points, but Laune Rangers scored a second goal to quell the momentum the home side were building – Fiachra Clifford with a great run before passing to Roan Moriarty who netted for the second time. Beaufort didn’t drop their heads and scored the next three points of the game to nullify that goal – Padraig Doona, Fergal Hallissey (free) and Liam Carey all scoring with Doona’s particularly catching the eye. Points were traded between Jack O’Connor and Jonathan Kissane – both excellent scores – to leave Laune Rangers ahead by 2-13 to 1-11 with a quarter to play. Ronan Murphy and Kieran Doona exchanged points, but Beaufort were now in search of a goal to get back into the tie. The full back line of Rangers were not to be passed though, and put in a dominant display to protect their lead. Indeed, the two best goal chances of the final quarter both fell to Laune Rangers, but Fiachra Clifford hit the crossbar with the goal at his mercy while Shane Doona also had a shot flash wide of the posts. Rangers made a number of changes in the final stages of the game, including the introduction of Johnny Carey & Shane Daly late on, while James Hurley also came on for his Senior debut. The only score of the final quarter went the way of Fiachra Clifford to see Rangers win by six. Full Time Score:- Beaufort 1-12, Laune Rangers 2-15. Laune Rangers were short-handed coming into the game, but a number of players stepped up to the mark and put in excellent performances, leading from the first minute to the end. Roan Moriarty & David Mangan (both minors), Mark O’Connor and Seán Arthurs (both 19) were superb for Rangers, with full back Arthurs the stand out performer on the day. Beaufort:- Seán Coffey, Liam Curran, Ger Hartnett, Jonathan Kissane (0-1), James O’Reilly, Mike Breen, Seán Kelliher, Nathan Breen, Ronan Murphy (0-1), Padraig Doona (0-1), Liam Carey (0-2), Danny Healy, Fergal Hallissey (0-4, 3f), Ciarán Kennedy (1-3, 1 pen), Padraig O’Sullivan. Subs: Ronan Ferris, Jeremiah O’Sullivan, Kieran O’Sullivan. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne (0-3, 1f, 2 45’), David Costelloe, Seán Arthurs, David Mangan, Cormac Johnston, Shane McSweeney, Patrick Carey, Jack O’Connor (0-1), John Tyther (0-1), Mark O’Connor (0-1), Kieran Doona (0-5, 4f), Darragh O’Sullivan (0-1), Fiachra Clifford (0-2, 1f), Roan Moriarty (2-1), Shane Doona.

MINOR: Laune Rangers will contest the Mid Kerry Minor Championship Final following victory in the Semi Final against Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane on Saturday afternoon. Laune Rangers led by three points – Gabe Griffin (2) and Gearóid Hassett with the scores – before GGC scored their first point of the game in the 6th minute. However, Rangers’ first goal gave Rangers a cushion that they never looked like relinquishing, as Ronan O’Shea’s shot hit the net albeit having almost been stopped on the line by a defender. Shane Doona scored two excellent points before Ronan O’Shea rippled the net twice in the space of a minute to complete a first half hat-trick – both goals from short range having been set up by Calum Moriarty. GGC managed a point late in the half to see Rangers leading by twelve at the break. Half Time Score:- GGC 0-2, Laune Rangers 3-5. Rangers managed the game well in the second half, opening with two Matt Leslie pointed frees before GGC scored their third point, although Ronan O’Shea came very close to scoring a 4th goal in the opening play of the half only to see the ball stopped on the line. Shane Doona and Matt Leslie added further points to their tallies to see Laune Rangers lead by 3-9 to 0-3 with a quarter to play. Laune Rangers were able to run the bench in the final quarter, with all subs getting on the ball and impressing. Matt Leslie and Ronan O’Shea (free) added to the Laune Rangers lead before GCC pegged one back with their last point of the game. The final score of the game came from Matt Leslie with a pointed free. Full Time Score:- Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane 0-4, Laune Rangers 3-12. Laune Rangers:- Jack Evans, Evan Madden (capt), Matt Reenstierna, Seán Cleary, Eoin Clifford, David Mangan, James Hurley, Roan Moriarty, Rory O’Connor, Calum Moriarty, Gabriel Griffin (0-2), Matthew Leslie (0-5, 3f), Ronan O’Shea (3-1, 1f), Gearóid Hassett (0-1), Shane Doona (0-3).

SENIOR: Laune Rangers were defeated by Milltown/Castlemaine in the Semi Final of Mid Kerry’s O’Sullivan Cup on Sunday morning in Milltown. Following some wayward shooting by both sides, Milltown/Castlemaine took the lead in the 6th minute with a Cathal Moriarty point and followed it up with a tap in goal for Eoin O’Brien. Rangers settled into the game from here though, and dominated the middle part of the first half. Pointed frees by Fiachra Clifford and Dáire Cleary sandwiched a Kieran Doona point to leave Milltown/Castlemaine leading by the minimum at 1-1 to 0-3 after fifteen minutes. Dáire Cleary (2) & John Tyther points put Rangers into the lead but Craig Counihan and Cathal Moriarty pointed to level matters. Rangers retook the lead with a goal – Fiachra Clifford with a super finish to the bottom corner – but Cathal Moriarty pointed a free for the hosts to see Rangers leading by 2 at the break. Half Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 1-5, Laune Rangers 1-6. Jonathan O’Sullivan equalized with a point for Milltown before the hosts were presented with a gilt-edged chance when they were awarded a penalty. However, Jason Browne got down low to his right corner to save Craig Counihan’s effort. The home side added points from Eoin O’Brien & Jonathan O’Sullivan to lead by 1-8 to 16 with fifteen minutes to play. Fiachra Clifford scored a well taken point before forcing a save from Cormac Leane in the Milltown net, and the momentum swing was immediate as the hosts found the net at the opposite end through David Roche. The deficit was halved with points from Roan Moriarty and Fiachra Clifford but Pa Wrenn pointed to put a goal between the sides heading into injury time. Rangers laid siege to the Milltown goal in search of the leveller but the men in green had ‘parked the bus’ sufficiently to hold on for the win. Full Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 2-12, Laune Rangers 1-12. Milltown/Castlemaine:- Cormac Leane, Tadgh McCarthy, Pa Wrenn (0-1), Stephen Roche, Ciarán O’Connor, Jerry Hayes, Gavin McKenna, David Roche (1-0), Donal Dennehy, Craig Counihan (0-2), Jonathan O’Sullivan (0-4, 1f), Killian Kerins, Cathal Moriarty (0-4, 1f), Donal Kelliher, Eoin O’Brien (1-1).

UNDER 16 GIRLS: Laune Rangers Under 16 Girls season came to an end on Wednesday evening last with agonizing defeat in the East Kerry Championship ‘B’ Final. A late, late goal for the home side Kilcummin saw them steal the victory from Rangers following a mammoth effort from every player. Kilcummin got off to the perfect start with a goal from the opening play of the game, but Rangers soon settled. Points from Kate Moroney, Laura Leslie & Aoife Cleary levelled the game by the 9th minute. Sara Leslie cancelled out a Kilcummin point with one of her own before hitting the net for a goal to put Rangers ahead. With fifteen minutes played, Laune Rangers led by 1-4 to 1-1. Full back Jade Costello and centre-back Orla O’Brien began to gain superiority down the middle of the defence, which gave Rangers the platform to attack late in the half. Kilcummin pointed a free before Rangers scored their second goal through Nessa Healy. Kilcummin scored two more points before the break – the second coming after Lucy Cahill had stopped a certain goal with a great save – while Laura Leslie kicked the final score of the half. Half Time Score:- Kilcummin 1-4, Laune Rangers 2-5. Points were traded between the sides after the restart before Laura Leslie – the scorer of that early point – & Nessa Healy added to Rangers lead to leave Rangers ahead by 2-8 to 1-5 with a quarter to play. All the momentum had swung in favour of the home side though, and Rangers held on to their lead due to a huge defensive effort. The gap between the sides was reduced to 2 points as Kilcummin scored 1-1 in quick sucession, but Laura Leslie scored a brace to put Rangers 4 ahead with 8 minutes left. Two Kilcummin frees restored the two point margin as Rangers were now struggling to get the ball into the opposition half to relieve the pressure. With time up, Kilcummin scored the winning goal as Rangers – now out on their feet – were unable to get the all important equalizer. Full Time Score:- Kilcummin 3-8, Laune Rangers 2-10. Laune Rangers:- Lucy Cahill, Laura Patton, Jade Costello, Siofra Foley, Isobelle Sheahan, Orla O’Brien, Grace Garland, Laura Leslie (0-6, 2f), Aoife Nash Freeman, Sophia Doherty, Edel Griffin, Aoife Cleary (0-1), Kate Moroney (0-1), Nessa Healy (1-1), Sara Leslie (1-1).

CLUB FUN DAY: The Under 6, Under 8 & Under 10 Boys and Girls brought their collective seasons to a close on Sunday afternoon. The Day was marked with a hugely successful and enjoyable Club Fun Day in JP O’Sullivan Park. The U10 Parish League is a competition that generations of Laune Rangers have cut their teeth in and the 2019 edition did not disappoint with some excellent football on show. Many thanks to Killorglin & District Pipe Band who supplied pipers to lead out the teams onto the field. The ‘Green & Gold’ team came out on top, defeating the White Team in the A Final, with the Blue Team winning the B Final with victory against the Cúl Team. ‘Green & Gold’ captain Donnacha Prendiville was presented with the Seamus and Noreen Murphy Memorial Cup after the Finals. The Parish League formed part of a fantastic day of activity for the club, with the glorious weather allowing us to make the most of the day. The Club would like to thank the huge number of volunteers who contributed so much on the day led by our hard working committee – photographers, BBQ attendants, facepainters, attendants who gave out all the goodies & sold merchandise in the clubhouse and helped out outside with our fun and games. We thank Bunkers Bar, Cahillane’s Butchers and Value Centre Killarney for their donations of Food and materials. Huge thanks also to all that donated home baking etc – the volume of food that was on offer on the day was testament to the fantastic effort made by all. Of course, all of our footballers could not take the field without certain people – the parents that feed the interest in our game into their children and trust us with them every week, and the coaches who volunteer their time every week. We, as a club, thank you all. Finally, we thank all our future stars for their efforts and look forward to seeing everyone back in 2020.
