SENIOR: Laune Rangers Seniors opened their season on Sunday afternoon with an overwhelming away defeat by Beaufort. The home side fielded a near full strength team that included a dozen of the Mid Kerry Championship winning team from 2017. Laune Rangers handed a Senior debut to goalkeeper Padraig Ahern, and named a number of players who were returning from long term absenses on the team – Cormac Johnston, Chris Riordan, Kevin O’Sullivan, John O’Shea all starting the game for Rangers – as a host of first team regulars were unavailable or rested. Beaufort controlled the game from the outset, and had 2-6 on the board before Rangers registered their first score with a John O’Shea pointed free. Another Beaufort point was added but John O’Shea (free) and Cian O’Shea kicked the final points of the opening half. Half Time Score:- Beaufort 2-7, Laune Rangers 0-3. John O’Shea (2, 1 free) and Shane Mangan managed to get points on the board for Rangers during a long second half, as Beaufort drove home their supremacy, scoring four more goals to add further gloss to the scoreline. Full Time Score:- Beaufort 6-15, Laune Rangers 0-6. Laune Rangers Team:- Padraig Ahern, Ronan Sayers, Cormac Johnston, Pierce Tyther, John Tyther, Chris Riordan, Kevin O’Sullivan, Shane Daly, Shane Mangan (0-1), John O’Shea (0-4, 3f), Padraig Murphy, David Costelloe, Cian O’Shea (0-1), Colm O’Shea, Eamonn Carey. Subs used: John Lodder Knightly for Riordan, Gavin O’Shea for Carey, James Lynch for Colm O’Shea.

CHRISTY KISSANE CUP: The 2nd Annual Christy Kissane Cup was played out on Saturday, February 3rd as Laune Rangers hosted Kingdom Kerry Gaels in Cloon. The full tournament was unfortunately cancelled early in the week as the unrelenting weather caused the closure of pitches. Christy’s beloved Kingdom Kerry Gaels made the journey for the event and were driven to carry the silverware back to London with them. It was also Laune Rangers’ first game of 2018 with the management team at the helm. However, Rangers were without an array of first team players as the Under 21s had a Mid Kerry Semi Final ahead of them 24 hours later, with a number of others out injured. Kingdom Kerry Gaels got off to a great start with a goal in the 2nd minute, but the first half in general was evenly balanced & just a point separated the sides at the break – John Tyther, Colm O’Shea (free) and Shane Mangan points added to a Colm O’Shea goal. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-3, Kingdom Kerry Gaels 1-3. The beginning of the second half saw a heavy shower of hail during which time KKG scored two goals that were missed by the majority of spectators that had scurried for shelter! The hail subsided for the remainder of the game but KKG did not relent and, apart from a John Tyther penalty that was excellently dispatched in a mud-bath of a goal area, the Londoners were the better side for the final stages of the game. A fourth goal for KKG secured the win on a Final Score:- Laune Rangers 2-6, Kingdom Kerry Gaels 4-7. After the Christy Kissane Cup spent the first year of its existence on the banks of the Laune, it now rather fittingly embarks across the pond the spend 2018 in London in the grasp of the Club so beloved by the man it is dedicated to. We hope to see Kingdom Kerry Gaels again in 2019 for the chance to win it back! Laune Rangers squad:- Jason Browne, Ronan Sayers, Johnny Carey, Cormac Johnston, James Lynch, Chris Riordan, Colm O’Mahony, Jack O’Connor, Shane Daly, Colm O’Shea, Shane McSweeney, John Tyther, David Costelloe, Shane Mangan, Eamonn Carey, John O’Shea, Gavin O’Shea, Kevin O’Sullivan, Cathal Doyle.

AGM: The Annual General Meeting of Laune Rangers GAA Club took place on Saturday evening at JP O’Sullivan Park. Following nomination by the Club Executive, Barth Moriarty was elected to the role of Club President, succeeding the late Johnny Galvin who was remembered on the night. Following his election, Barth spoke of being taken aback when informed of his nomination & the honour he felt in assuming the position of President of our great club. After three years of service, Lisa Brennan 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.

Two Laune Rangers stalwarts call it a day

Two of Laune Rangers’ longest serving players – Tony Lyons & Maurice Foley – have called time on their on-field service to the club before the 2018 season gets underway.

Part of a great crop of players to come through the Laune Rangers system in the late 80s/early 90s, Tony Lyons won the All Ireland Féile U14 title with the club in 1991, and went on to join a number of his clubmates in winning the Corn Uí Mhuirí & Hogan Cup with ISK in 1996. Joining the squad in 1997, goalkeeper Lyons gave 21 years as part of the Laune Rangers Senior Squad, & won 3 Molyneaux Cups and 3 County League titles with the B Team before taking over from his cousin Peter Lyons as first choice netminder in 2002. He would take over as Rangers’ number 1 for the next 17 years. He won a County Senior Club title, County League Division One (2) and Division Two titles as well as 7 Mid Kerry Senior Championship medals (5 in a row from 02-06) and 5 Mid Kerry Senior Leagues.

Maurice Foley joined the Laune Rangers Senior Squad in 2004, and gave 14 years service to the team. He was also part of the last Rangers squad to win the Michael O’Connor Cup, and picked up 3 Mid Kerry Senior Championship medals between 2004 & 2006, and 3 Mid Kerry Senior Leagues in his Senior career.He spent the last two years as club captain, but injury denied him from leading the team out for much of that time

Both players played their final game for the club in the O'Sullivan Cup Final win on November 5th, 2017, with Maurice as captain.

Laune Rangers GAA sincerely thank both Tony and Maurice for their service, & wish them both the very best in their retirement from the field. We hope that we see them return in a coaching capacity in the not too distant future!
