AGM: The Annual General Meeting of Laune Rangers GAA Club took place on Saturday evening at JP O’Sullivan Park. Muireann Arthurs stepped down as Secretary of the Club, but with no nomination received in time for the AGM, the position remains unfilled and this will have to be addressed in the immediate future. If it cannot be filled, an EGM will have to be called to address the issue. The Laune Rangers Club Executive for 2019 is made up of the following:- President Barth Moriarty; Chairperson Mary Quirke, Vice-Chairperson Sinead Pigott; Treasurers Diarmuid O’Sullivan & Brian Kissane; Registrars Larry Laide & Pat O’Shea; PRO Aidan Clifford, Co Board Delegate John Griffin; Mid Kerry Board Delegate John Clifford; Development Officer John Quirke; Insurance Officer Brian O’Shea; Finance Officer Ger Counihan; Player Welfare Officer Eoin Ferris; Children’s Officer James O’Mahony; Bord na nÓg Chairman John Clifford; Bord na nÓg Secretary Paudie Lynch; Ladies Chairperson Diane Hassett; Lotto Officer John Foley; Player’s Representative to be appointed by players; Lotto sub-committee Chairperson John Foley; Club Secretary to be ratified at first club meeting of the year. 

MINOR: Commiserations to the Laune Rangers Minor Team who were defeated after extra time in the Central Region Minor Final on Sunday morning, which was fixed earlier in the week. Final Score AET: Austin Stacks 5-14, Laune Rangers 3-11. Disappointment won’t last too long for the County Division 1 and Mid Kerry Minor Champions as this game was played a month after their season had finished and they were without a number of key players on the day. Well done to all for their efforts, including U15s Matt Reenstierna & Calum Moriarty who travelled with the team and both got game time under their belts.

MERCHANDISE: Christmas is just three weeks away, and the gift of Laune Rangers merchandise will be the perfect stocking filler this festive season! Our merchandise co-ordinator Carol Naughton will be the clubrooms in JP O’Sullivan Park on Saturday, December 15th from 10 to 11am. We can even accept card payments!

Fiachra Clifford striking a goal for Laune Rangers in Sunday's Mid Kerry Final defeat to Glenbeigh/Glencar


LOTTO: Lotto Results for Sunday 4th November 2018. There was no winner of the €11,600 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 06– 09 – 16 – 28. The Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 Niamh Brosnan - standing order; €50 Jimmy Hayes - sold by Maria Hayes; €25 Robert Moriarty - standing order; €25 Betty & Breda Moriarty. Next week’s Lotto Jackpot will be €11,800

MID KERRY SENIOR FINAL: There was ultimate disappointment for Laune Rangers on Sunday afternoon as a more experienced Glenbeigh/Glencar defeated them in the Mid Kerry Senior Championship Final in JP O’Sullivan Park. Laune Rangers got off to a great start, scoring three points through Colm O’Shea (2, 1 free) and Peter Crowley in the first three minutes. However, Glenbeigh/Glencar settled into the game and it took them only five minutes to draw level, as Tommy Cahill (2, 1 free) and Fergal Griffin pointed for the visitors. Rangers scored another three unanswered points before the quarter mark – Fiachra Clifford (free), John Tyther & Colm O’Shea (free) all scoring to leave Laune Rangers ahead by 0-6 to 0-3 with 15 minutes played. Fiachra Clifford pointed a free for Rangers, but it was soon cancelled out by Darran O’Sullivan at the opposite end. Clifford then scored a wonderful point from a near impossible angle for Rangers, but Tommy Cahill (2) and Colin McGillicuddy pointed to leave the minimum between the sides. Rangers struck the net before the break – a nice move down the left flank saw John Tyther pass into Dáire Cleary, who in turn fed Fiachra Clifford & the forward finished excellently to the bottom corner. Glenbeigh/Glencar responded well and scored the last two points of the half through Kieran Courtney and Darran O’Sullivan to leave Rangers ahead by two at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-8, Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-9. Laune Rangers doubled their lead at the start of the second half as Fiachra Clifford and David Costelloe both pointed, but Jack Brosnan got one back for Glenbeigh/Glencar at the opposite end. That score would prove more costly than expected for Rangers as Peter Crowley got injured in challenging Brosnan – a challenge that would earn him a yellow card once he got back on his feet. Crowley played on, but was clearly hurt & would eventually have to come ashore before the end of the game. Daniel Griffin and Fiachra Clifford (free) traded points to leave Rangers ahead by a goal at 1-11 to 0-11 with fifteen minutes to play. The highlight of the third quarter was a huge defensive shoulder by Rangers’ Johnny Carey on Tommy Cahill. Darren O’Sullivan pointed a free for Glenbeigh to narrow the gap, but Shane Daly kicked a long range free from the ground to restore the three point gap. However, momentum had swung in favour of the Glenbeigh side and they scored four points in succession through Darran O’Sullivan (2), Daniel Griffin & Tommy Cahill to take their first lead of the game in the 60th minute. Cahill pointed the winning score in injury time to take the Cup. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-12, Glenbeigh/Glencar 0-17. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Seán Arthurs, Jonathan Carey (capt), Cormac Johnston, Patrick Carey, Peter Crowley (0-1), Michael O’Sullivan, Jack O’Connor, John Tyther (0-1), Fiachra Clifford (1-5, 4f), Kieran Doona, Conor Murphy, Dáire Cleary, Colm O’Shea (0-3, 2f), David Costelloe (0-1). Subs used: Shane Daly (0-1f) for O’Shea, Daragh O’Connor for Doona, Pierce Tyther for Crowley, Patrick Daly for Arthurs. Glenbeigh/Glencar:- Donal O’Neill, Seán Roche, Ciarán Doyle (capt), Oisín O’Connor, Jack Brosnan (0-1), Pa Kilkenny, Stephen O’Sullivan, Colin McGillicuddy (0-1), Fergal Griffin (0-1), Adrian O’Connor, Caolim Teahan, Tommy Cahill (0-6, 2f), Kieran Courtney (0-1), Daniel Griffin (0-2), Darran O’Sullivan (0-5, 1f).

JUNIOR: Laune Rangers were defeated by Spa on Thursday evening in the Barrett Cup Final, which was played at the new Kerry GAA Centre of Excellence in Currans. Spa had the benefit of a strong breeze in the first half and made the most of it, and led by 1-4 to 0-0 after 15 minutes, although Mark O’Connor almost had the ball in the net for Rangers in the first quarter only to see his shot saved. Patrick Daly & Mike Frank Russell (free) got Rangers on the board with points before Rangers saw another goal chance missed as John Sheehan’s shot flashed outside the post. Spa pointed their only point of the second quarter in the 20th minute as they defended on mass – 14 of their team inside their own 45 at times. Laune Rangers produced a third goal chance as Patrick Daly got his fist to a dropping ball at the edge of the square only to see the ball sneak wide of the left post again. Half Time Score:- Spa Killarney 1-5, Laune Rangers 0-2. Laune Rangers got off to a great start to the second half, as Mark O’Connor scored a super point before Patrick Daly struck the net for a well taken goal. After Spa saw a goal chance sail wide at one end, Mike Frank Russell kicked arguably the best point of the game from 45 yards. Eamonn Carey reacted quickly to a dropped-short 45 to slot the ball over the bar and level the game. However, the tide began to turn once more in favour of Spa as the breeze died down. The Killarney side kicked three frees in succession before producing a second goal to double their lead with 15 minutes to play. Spa would point two more points to make sure of the win as Kieran Doona pointed a consolation score for Rangers as Gavin O’Shea struck the crossbar late on. Full Time Score:- Spa Killarney 2-10, Laune Rangers 1-6. Laune Rangers Team:- Padraig Ahern, Seán Arthurs, Mark Healy (capt), Darragh O’Shea, Colm O’Mahony, Michael O’Sullivan, James Lynch, Maurice Foley, John Sheehan, Patrick Daly (1-1), Kieran Doona (0-1), Cian O’Shea, Michael F Russell (0-2), Eamonn Carey (0-1), Mark O’Connor (0-1). Subs: Gavin O’Shea, Chris Riordan, Oisín Daly, Francis Russell, Dáire Clifford; Vincent Costello, Jerome Houlihan, Paudie O’Shea, Conor Murphy.

MINOR FIXTURE: Laune Rangers will face Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane in the Mid Kerry Minor Championship Final. The game will be played on Saturday, October 27th. Venue on Time to be confirmed.

UNDER 16 BOYS: Laune Rangers defeated Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane on Sunday afternoon in Round 3 of the Mid Kerry Under 16 Competition. Playing in Cromane, the home side had more of the play in the opening stages, but Rangers led through a Matt Leslie goal in the 7th minute somewhat against the run of play. Leslie added two points (1 free) before GGC scored their first point of the game. Shogie O’Sullivan hit the net to finish a great team move that included great link play from Jack Healy and Rory O’Connor in the build-up. Gearóid Hassett scored a fantastic individual goal a minute later to see Rangers leading by 3-2 to 0-1 with fifteen minutes played. Matt Leslie (free) & Calum Russell both pointed to cancel out points from GGC, but the home side kicked three points in succession to narrow the gap between the teams. Matt Leslie scored the final point of the half to see Rangers leading by nine points at the break. Half Time Score:- Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane 0-6, Laune Rangers 3-5. GGC opened the scoring at the start of the second half with a point but Matt Leslie scored his second goal of the game in the 34th minute, as Gearoid Hassett ran 60 yards in possession before passing to Leslie who slotted it to the net. Shogie O’Sullivan pointed twice with well taken scores while Matt Leslie (free) and Gearóid Hassett added further scores to see Rangers lead by 4-9 to 0-7 with a quarter to play. Rangers lost Rory O’Connor to a black card in the final quarter as a penalty was awarded to the home side. However, goalkeeper Jake Reenstierna – introduced as a substitute a few minutes earlier – made a great double save as he stopped both the initial spot kick and the follow up shot. GGC added two points before GGC were awarded another penalty and Reenstierna was black carded. Rangers’ marquee forward Gearóid Hassett stepped in goal for the spot kick. GGC were successful on the second time of asking to reduce the gap between the sides. The hosts would add two further points in the final minutes to add gloss to the scoreline, but Rangers had done enough to win. Full Time Score:- Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane 1-12, Laune Rangers 4-9. Laune Rangers Squad:- Cian Naylor, Patrick Brennan, Matthew Reenstierna, Niall Fenton, Darragh Mangan, Seán Cleary, James Byrne, Rory O’Connor, Calum Moriarty, Shogie O’Sullivan, Jack Healy, Calum Russell, Matthew Leslie, Gearóid Hassett, Marc Clifford; Cathal Crowley, Mikey O’Donnell, James Treacy, Jake Reenstierna, Jack O’Sullivan, Adam Owens, Ryan O’Sullivan, Ryan Diggin, Eoghan Hassett, Ciarán O’Sullivan.

UNDER 16 BOYS FIXTURE: Laune Rangers will have a bye in Round 4 of the Mid Kerry Under 16 Competition. Their next game is away at Milltown/Castlemaine on Sunday 28th October.
