He hit 1-7 in yesterday’s win over Kerins O’Rahillys (2-14 to 0-9). The UCC attacker has landed 6-37 in his last five games.
His 15th minute goal put Dingle on course against their Tralee opponents who struggled following an injury to Declan Quill. Geaney was then fouled for a penalty which cousin David converted to push his side 2-6 to 0-5 clear and there was no way back for O’Rahillys despite the efforts of Mike Quirke.
Though without Colm Cooper, Eoin Brosnan and Ambrose O’Donovan, Dr Crokes beat Milltown/Castlemaine 3-12 to 0-8 to move second in the table. Luke Quinn, Kieran O’Leary and Keith O’Leary goaled.
Ardfert got off the bottom of the table with a 3-8 to 1-11 win over fellow strugglers Gneeveguilla thanks to goals from Trevor Wallace, Tom Moloney (penalty) and John Dowling. However, with Laune Rangers beating Legion 3-10 to 1-10, and Spa getting a point off Rathmore in a 0-13 to 0-13 draw, it makes for an intriguing relegation battle with three teams battling to avoid the drop.
Meanwhile, in the senior hurling championship, a young Causeway side served notice they mean business when they hammered Abbeydorney 2-17 to 3-5 and now face champions Ballyduff in the semi-final. Goals from John Mike Dooley and Richard Casey, six points from Kerry minor Paul McGrath and four off the bench from Colm Harty has sent out a warning Causeway are a force to be reckoned with.
Lixnaw, without Eamonn Fitzmaurice and Paul Galvin, held on to beat St Brendan’s 0-13 to 0-11, but Paul’s brother Raymond led by example.
Ricky Heffernan with 0-6 and James Flaherty with 0-3 did the damage for Lixnaw who were lucky when Darran Wallace hit the post in the final minute.
The win sets up a semi-final with Kilmoyley.
Meanwhile, it is believed Kingdom legend Mikey Sheehy may be set to join new Kerry boss Eamon Fitzmaurice’s management team. The matter will be discussed at a Kerry County Committee meeting tonight week.
