Seniors The Listry senior team took a very valuable county league point from their encounter with Ballymac which was played in Faha on Sunday last. While Listry would have been happy with a draw before the game this was one they left get away from them. Listry led by 1-3 to 0-2 at half time and by 1-7 to 0-3 entering the last quarter however Ballymac outscored them in that last 10 minutes to earn a draw. Ballymac are second in the table so a point here was a good result but a few more wins are needed to secure their div 4 status. The junior team were defeated by Cromane on Friday evening last on the score line of Cromane 1-9 Listry 1-5. Mike Kennedy     Seniors. Seniors. Last Sunday Listry travelled to Scartaglen to take on the locals for the fifth time this year when the sides met this time in the Co League. Unfortunately Listry came out the wrong end of a close game when they were defeated 12pts to 11pts. Listry short some regulars due to a wedding and injuries came up against a Scart side at full strength. The first quarter was close enough after which Scart led 0-6 to Listry’s 0-5. Over the next ten minutes Scart got the upper hand and moved into a 5pts lead as the game moved towards half time when Listry scored a point to leave the sides Scart 0-10 to Listry 0-6 at the break. Listry started the second half much the stronger and took the game to Scart but some poor shooting both from play and frees meant they could never get on level terms. Listry were much the better team in the second half but with only 5pts to show even playing with the wind they failed to at least secure the draw they deserved. With Kerry’s Munster championship semi final next weekend and the Co championship the weekend after the senior team may not have a game for 3 to 4 weeks.

Murt Broderick   May 2011   28th May The senior team had an important win on last Saturday evening when they defeated Scartaglen in Currow in the East Kerry league div 2 final replay. While this game never lived up to the standard of the drawn game it was important for Listry to finally win a trophy. This was the third year in a row to contest this final and victory was all the more precious as a result. The first half was even with never more than 2 points between the sides as they finished the half on level terms 6pts to 1-3. Listry would have been the happier with this score as they had played into a stiff breeze. However the second half was only seconds old when Scartaglen were awarded a penalty and this was duly scored to give them the perfect start against the wind. Listry responded well to this and were back on level terms thanks to points from John Foley, Anthony Kennedy and Billy O Brien before a great long range point from wing back John Darmody put them in front midway through this half. Scartaglen only scored one more point in this half and as Listry took more control of the game Patrick Sheahan got in for a goal to put Listry four points up with five minutes remaining and in spite of pressure from Scartaglen they held out for a victory that will see them in div 1 of the East Kerry league next year. Tim Ryan East Kerry board vice chairman presented the trophy to Listry captain Danny Wrenn.   21st May Seniors. The senior team returned to winning ways last weekend when they defeated local rivals Fossa 1 -13 to 1-6 in round 4 of the co league played in Fossa. They started this game very poorly with almost all players well beaten and in fact Fossa led 1-4 to nil after 15 minutes. However as in the Na Gael game a few weeks ago when Jimmy O Leary was brought to midfield the game changed as he got the upper hand on Lorcan Daly who had been dictating the game up to then. Listry, thanks to Jimmys dominance, came more into the game and scored 6 points before half time where Fossa led 1-6 to Listrys 0-6. The second half was dominated by Listry who after 2 quick points had a period where they struggled to get the equalizer but once they got on level terms the easily pulled away with a great goal from Patrick Sheahan and points from Derry Ahern who finished with 6 points, Anthony Kennedy (3), John Foley, Jimmy O Leary, Eoghan Darmody, and Billy O Brien. In defence, where they struggled at the start, Danny Wrenn, Anthony Sweeney and John Foley in particular got control over the Fossa attack which threatened to run riot in the first quarter. Next fixture for the senior team is the East Kerry league div 2 final replay against Scartaglen which will be played in Currow on this Saturday evening May 21st at 7 o clock. B Team. The B team started their co league on last Friday night with an away game to Fossa. Having played very well throughout they eventually went under on the score Fossa 10pts Listry 7pts.

Congratulations and best wishes to Gary O Sullivan who has been selected on the Kerry Minor panel who play Tipperary in the Munster minor championship this Wednesday evening May 21st.   15th May Seniors. The senior team made their exit from the Co Novice championship over the weekend when they were defeated by Scartaglen in Scartaglen on Sunday last on the score Scartaglen 1-8 Listry 0-5. This match which was changed from Saturday night due to bereavement was played in very difficult conditions with a gale force wind making good football impossible. However Scartaglen adopted to the conditions better and with the aid of a fortuitous goal midway through the first half, when they played against the wind, they led 1-3 to 0-5 at half time. Although Listry tried hard against the wind they could not manage to get a score in the second half and even though Scartaglen found it hard to play with the wind they finally found their scoring boots to score 5pts without reply over the last five minutes of the game to run out winners 1-8 to 05. The senior team now return to Co league action when they face neighbours Fossa away on next Saturday evening at 7pm. Mike Kennedy Juvenile. U12’s were at home to Ballydonoghue on sunday May 1st.

U14’s are playing Skellig Rangers/Valentia on Thursday 5th away at 7 p.m. This is a semi final so best of luck to all involved. Seniors. The senior team had a vital county league win on Saturday evening last April 30 when they defeated Na Gaeil in Tralee 0- 14 to 1- 10. They were the better team all through this encounter but were lucky to survive with both points at the end when Na Gaeil were pressing for the equalizer. Listry did all the pressing in the early stages of the game but conceded a goal against the run of play. They then dominated the rest of the first half with Anthony Sweeney in great form at centre back and Jimmy O Leary helping them get the upper hand when he roamed out as a third midfielder but they trailed 1-5 to 0-7 at half time. Listry were much the better side in the second half and pulled away to lead 0- 12 to 1- 6 entering the last ten minutes. Na Gaeil came more into it over the last quarter and out scored Listry by 4 pts to 2pts. Listry lead by 2pts entering injury time and Na Gaeil pressed hard for a match winning goal but in the four extra minutes played could only manage a point which saw Listry win by 0-14 to 1-10. Fixtures. The senior team play round two of the Novice championship when they take on Scartaglin in Scartaglin on this Saturday at 6- 30 pm. Top of Page April 2011 U12s Victorious at Croke Park By 6.30 on wednesday morning members of the 2011 under 12 team started turning up at the start of what was to be a memorable day in Listry history. Full of anticipation the bus left at just after 7 and by 11.30 we had got into Dublin, the team went into Jurys Hotel just opposite Croke for a lunch before heading over the road at 12.30 to begin preparing for the Competition.   After a lengthy wait watching other teams competing Listry entered the Hallowed turf to play their first game against St Sinens, almost immediately it was obvious the team wanted to do well and kept possession. It was a great match with both teams playing extremely well considering where they were, and the final score showed with Listry winning by 1 point. Scores were 0-7 to 2-0.   Game 2 was looking to be a tough one as Listry were up against the team who had beaten them at home only the week before, but once again they rallied around feeding the forwards as much as they could forcing Na Gaelteacht into a 4 point loss. Final score 0-8 to 1-1 The teams best win points wise came on the 3rd and final game when they went up against Drumtarriffe. From the start Listry had most possession and played brilliantly securing a 1-4 to 0-2 win taking their tally for the day to 3 straight wins out of 3. After the excitement on the Croke Park Pitch the Lads enjoyed a guided tour around the Home of GAA, viewing the original silverware and learning more about the history of the GAA and Croke Park. Finally a very tired but exhilarated Team minus a handfull who were staying in Dublin returned to the Coach and started the journey back to the Listry Pitch, finally making it back around 11pm After an amazing Day made all the more special by the Teams Superb playing, thanks need to go out to Sean Walsh, Robert Gallagher, Bernard Murphy The trainers and everyone else who helped on the Day Top of Page 22nd SUPERIOR FIREPOWER ENABLES LISTRY TO OUTGUN NEVER SAY DIE BEALE Friday, 22 April 2011 23:59 | Keane’s County Minor Football League Division 5 A Final Listry 4-12 Beale 3-11 by Murt Murphy for kerrygaa.ie The curtain raiser to the main event, almost topped the Division 1 final in terms of entertainment, flowing football between two honest sides as Listry recovered from a shaky start to hang on late on, against a Beale fight back, to claim the Keane’s County Minor Football League Division 5A Final, played in ideal conditions at the Austin Stack Park this Good Friday evening. Listry possessed three very dangerous attackers, in man of the match Gary O’Sullivan who started at full forward but roamed far wide to display his vast array of skills, bustling centre forward Gavin Nolan and speedy wing forward Sean Lehane who between them kicked the bulk of the winners scores. Beale will be disappointed to have let his game slip after periods of supremacy in this contest with midfielders Diarmuid Crowe being their main scoring threat, while his side kick in the middle Aaron worked tirelessly throughout, displaying great vision but only Shane Hanrahan and Sean Farrell looked capable of scoring up front. It was open, exciting, attacking football and this may well have been because it was thirteen -a-side and it was refreshing in the extreme to see players run into empty spaces as opposed to crowded blanket defences. Beale made the brighter start when they were on top at midfield with Diarmuid Crowe and Aaron Farrell domination and it was the Beale skipper Crowe who fired over the opening three points (two from placed balls) as the North Kerry side jumped 0-3 to 0-1 in front inside the opening ten minutes. Then a combination of some good ball winning with Sean Lehane and the bustling Gavin Nolan had Beale in trouble at the back. Indeed Beale’s tendency to concede frees inside their own forty five, was to prove costly as Listry’s Gavin Nolan and Gary O’Sullivan punished some indiscipline with four pointed frees. That left Listry leading 0-4 to 0-3 by the 16th minute and during the next five minutes, Listry missed three goal chances. In the 17th minute a brilliant run by centre back Anthony Kennedy right through the middle of the Beale defence saw Gary O’Sullivan’s shot from point blank range being parried by keeper Shane Kissane and O’Sullivan punched the rebound wide of a gaping net. Straight from the kick out, it was de JA vu as Gavin Nolan powered through and again the keeper denied him a goal with an outstretched leg, allowing a defender to clear. Four minutes later, Listry carved opens the Beale defence but again Kissane saved his side when he blocked Kevin Courtney’s effort. However after Gary O’Sullivan restored Listry’s lead with a 23rd minute point, Listry struck minutes later for their first goal and it was quickly followed by a second before the break. In the 24th minute Leon O’Connor sent Gavin Power racing through the heart of the Beale defence and the strong centre forward billowed the net with a low drive. Then in first half injury time, Listry struck again, this time when O’Sullivan’s free kick dropped short into the grateful arms of Leon O’Connor, whose shot on goal was blocked illegally by a defender and referee Denis Sayers pointed to the spot with Gary O’Sullivan sending Kissane the wrong way, Listry led 2-6 to 0-4 at half time. Beale cut out much of the early running in the second half with 1-2 without reply with the 35th minute goal coming from a superb Sean Farrell catch who found wing back Cormac Walsh on his shoulder and he buried the ball in the Listry net. However it was a mirage as Listry took over again, with the three wise men, O’Sullivan, Lehane and Nolan combining in a sweeping move that saw Nolan smash the ball past Shane Kissane. Two unanswered Listry points from Lehane and midfielder Seamus Kennedy was followed by a fourth goal, this time 44th minute from Kennedy after another searing run. However credit Beale who kept plugging away in the final quarter and two points from Crowe, followed by Shane Hanrahan goal, and points from Crowe and Sean Farrell, narrowed the gap to just four points,. Listry steadied the ship with from Lehane and Kennedy and despite a late goal by the outstanding Diarmuid Crowe, Listry held out to win a memorable contest and claim the Division 5A County League The Keanes Super Valu Man of the Match was presented to Gary O’Sullivan (Listry) by Peter Keane Scorers Listry G Nolan 2-3 (0-2 frees), G O’Sullivan 1-5 (0-4 frees), Seamus Kennedy 1-2, Sean Lehane 0-2, Beale Diarmuid Crowe 1-6 (0-4 frees), Shane Hanrahan 1-2, Cormac Walsh 1-1.

Listry were first to score with a Stephen Brosnan point after 4 minutes but soon after St Senans got a goal after a 45 dropped in the square and was finished to the net. St Senans only scored 1 point for the rest of the half while Listry added 4 points from Derry Ahern (3) and Jimmy O Leary (1) to leave listry leaders at half time 0-5 to 1-1. Within two minutes of the second half Senans were ahead and although Stephen Brosnan brought the sides level Senans were soon back in front and from here on never lost the lead as Listry squandered some great chances especially from frees. Listry did not score for 20 minutes of the second half and this led to their second defeat at home in the county league this year. The next fixture for the senior team is the first round of the novice championship away to local rivals Fossa at 6-30 on Saturday evening next April 23rd. Minors.

The senior team had a poor start to their co league campaign when they were comprehensively beaten by Lispole in Faha on Sunday last on the score of Listry 0-8 to Lispole 1-13. Lispole were always in control of this game even if the sides were level at half time with 5pts apiece. The important score of the game came two minutes into the second half when Declan O Sullivan pounced on a ball in the Listry goalmouth and crashed it to the net. From here on there was only going to be one winner and they could have been further ahead had it not been for two brilliant saves by Tom Counihan in the Listry goal. In fact Listry did not score in the second half until the 17th minute of the half. Lispole who were only promoted last season were best served by Declan O Sullivan and Tomas Kavanagh in the full forward line where they accounted for 1-11 of their team total. Jimmy O Leary tried hardest for Listry and as already mentioned Tom Counihan while all the rest seemed to be at odds with their game.

They play the last round of the east Kerry league on Sunday next in Faha at 12 o clock v Scartaglen.

Novice Championship. In this Novice championship semi final played in Austin Stack Park last Saturday evening Listry defeated Beale in a rather lacklustre affair on the score line Listry 0-11, Beale 0-7. While Listry won this game by 4 points at the end they could never really pull away from a Beale side who struggled to stay in touch. Some poor shooting both from play and placed balls prevented Listry from taking control of this game long before the end. Listry opened the scoring with a point after 8 minutes. Beale replied immediately but with Jimmy O Leary and John Foley taking over at midfield for Listry they went on to score 3 points without reply to lead 4pts to 1pt at the half way stage of the first half. Ian Blake at full forward for Beale was causing problems for the Listry defence and he scored 3pts (2 frees) before half time when Listry went in leading 5pts to 4. In the second half Listry continued to dominate in midfield where John Foley was giving a man of the match performance. In spite of this they were not able to pull away and Beale were in this game right to the end. Three pointed frees from Anthony Sweeney and one each from play by Mike Tangney, Derry Ahern and John Foley completed Listry’s tally of 11 to Beale’s 7 at full time. Listry were best served in this game by Tadhg Ahern and Kieran Murphy in defence, Jimmy O Leary and John Foley at midfield and Derry Ahern, Anthony Sweeney, Mike Tangney and Damien Clifford in attack. Paul Collins at centre back as well as James McMahon, Graham Hannan and in particular Ian Blake in attack tried hardest for Beale.

This div 4 co league game played in Listry on Sunday last ended in a share of the points after a very dull game where both sides were guilty of some poor shooting. The final score of Listry 6pts Ballymac 1-3 says a lot about this game played in ideal conditions. Listry started the better and had 2pts on the board after 8 min but failed to score for the remainder of the first half. One feature of this half was a brillant double save by Colm Counihan to deny Ballymac what looked a certain goal. Ballymac’s only score in this half was a rather lucky goal which came when Gene O Keeffe lobbed a ball into the Listry goalmouth and it bounced in the square and ended up in the net to leave the half time score Ballymac 1gl Listry 2pts. The second half was much the same as both sets of defenders were well on top all through the game and scores were hard to come by. Anthony Sweeney 2pts and 1 each from John Foley and Damien Clifford completed Listry’s scoring while 2pts from Adain O Brien and 1 from Cathal DeLacy completed Ballymacs scoring. Listry might have stolen it towards the end but John Foleys attempt to fist a point dropped short and into the net. A draw was probably a fair result in what was a poor game overall. 02/05/10 The Under 14 team have just played a superb game beating Finuge 3-10 to 0-4,a brillient game with all the lads in the team pulling out all the stops, they are now in the Final of the County League April 2010 A great Weekend for Listry, with the Seniors beating Lispole 3-10 to 0-7 in the Novice Competition, also the Junior Teams came up trumps,with the Under 14s beating Fossa 2-5 to 1-7, and the Under 12s winning against Cromane 10-17 to 2-3. More now about the Seniors Senior Team. Listry senior team had a good victory over Lispole in the first round of the novice championship at Faha on Sunday last on the score line of Listry 3 -10 to Lispole 0-7. Lispole were first to score with a point straight from the start. Listry gradually took control with Paul Darmody in great form at midfield. This game was effectively all over after a two minute spell from the 10th to the 12th minute saw Listry score two goals. The first from Jimmy O Leary and two minutes later another from Damien Clifford. At half time Listry led 2-3 to 0-4. Lispole started the second half the better side and closed the gap to 5 points but this was as close as they got. Listry were again guilty of some poor shooting and in fact it took them 21 minutes to register a score in the second half. They then scored 1-3 in the space of 3 minutes to finish the game as a contest, the goal coming from Damien Clifford. The return of a few players from injury and suspension was a big help in this victory and it was nice to see Jimmy O Leary, David Nolan, John Foley and Tadhg Ahern contribute to the win.
