Kerryman 1904-current, Friday, December 06, 1985; Page: 25

and Lenamore win tremendous junior final

Ballylongford C (Lenamore) 1-3, Knockanure 0-3. IN the sixty years since Dromlought (Ballydonoghue) won the first North Kerry junior final, many stirring games have been played in the grade and in atrocious conditions at Bob Stack Park, Ballybunion, on Sunday last Lenamore and Knockanure lived up to that tradition when they served up a tremendous game of football which, time after time, drew roars of approval from the large crowd.

Knockanure splendid in their new tracksuits were first on the field and, with a strong wing behind them, they were first into attack too. But Lenamore broke away, James Barrett gained possession and shot wide. Lenamore attacked again from the kick-out and David O’Shea sent Sean Carmody away, but Carmody’s kick was just wide. Knockanure began to put on the pressure after this, and Nially Buckley was off target. Mike Lynch opened their account with a good point from the stand side. After fifteen minutes Knockanure switched Jim Keane with Pat Sullivan. Immediately, Keane set up Mike Lynch for a shot at goal which Torn Gorman saved. The ball rebounded towards the corner and Gorman cleared again. These saves were vital to the course of the game and Knockanure began shoot carelessly, hitting three bad wide’s.

After 20 minutes, Hughie Dineen received a nose injury and was replaced by Richie Fitzgerald. John Looney then scored Knockanure’s second point and added a third in the 25th minute. Con Lane then replaced Mike Lynch for Knockanure and tried hard  scores but to no avail and at half time the score was: Knockanure 0-3, Lenamore 0-0. Finbarr Prendeville retired injured for Knockanure at half time and was replaced by Paudie Keane. It was expected that Lenamore would be on top with the wind and within minutes James Barrett places David O’Shea for a point on the run. Pat Sullivan broke through for Knockanure. But a free out resulted. Seamus Boyle secured possession and made ground with a great run, before passing to Richie Fitzgerald who finished to the net.

After 40 minutes Dan Mulvihill replaced Tommy Mulvihill and Lenamore launched attack after attack, but they could not score. Knockanure began to take heart again, but James Barrett secured possession, passed to captain Eugene Carroll and Lenamore were two points up.

Mike Foley brought off a tremendous catch in the square and play moved up the far wing, Lenamore won a side-line kick and the ball broke to John Martin Sullivan who angled a nice point from the corner. After 55 minutes Lenamore brought in a fresh man in defence when Michael Barrett replaced Mossie O’Connor.

The 60th minute passed with Knockanure camped in the Lenamore half and there were five further minutes of play during which Lenamore defended desperately. At last, the ball moved into the Knockanure half and the final whistle sounded.

Great credit to both teams for a fine display. Lenarnore’s goalie Tom Gorman was man of the match, his tremendous saves in the first half earning him the award which was Sponsored by Dan Kiely, M C C. All eighteen Lenamore men played their parts, but Mike Foley and David Fennell exceled in defence and James Barrett, Eugene Carroll and Sean Carmody caught the eye up front. Best for Knockanure were Mike Joy, in goals, Tom Sullivan and Larry McCaffery in defence; midfielders John Lane and John Looney and Mike Lynch (before he went off), Nially Buckley, and Jim Keane in attack. After the game, Tomas MacGearailt, secretary, North Kerry Board, deputising for chairman Bernie O’Callaghan, presented the cup to Eugene O’Carroll.

SYRIA: Let’s go back to the Times piece about Syria and Russia. As it should, it summarizes Russian political interests in the region, including strong support for Assad. Then it quotes Aleksandr Shumilin, a Middle East specialist at the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, noting that: “What’s happening now is a very complicated knot being untied. … This is an unexpected gift for Putin.”

That’s true. But doesn’t religion play a role in that knot?




BEEF: “The concept of using the animal as a whole is an old idea that was forgotten with the arrival of industrial agriculture,” Carter says. In fact, many indigenous peoples of the world still utilize every bit of the animals they hunt—stripping bones of meat, picking them clean of all edible tissues, and cracking them for marrow. “Now this concept is coming back to the forefront because we realized how wasteful the conventional methods are,” Carter adds.
