Geaney driving Dingle on

Former Kerry minor and U21 star Paul Geaney’s rich vein of form has helped fire Dingle clear at the top of the county senior football league.

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.
