AUSTIN STACKS CLAIMED their third Kerry club senior football championship title in succession with a five-point win over Kenmare Shamrocks at Fitzgerald Stadium.

Sharpshooter Sean O’Shea shot 1-5 for the losing team, but the Tralee club did enough to run out 1-16 to 1-11 winners. 

Conor Jordan’s early goal gave Austin Stacks momentum and they almost grabbed a second goal with nine minutes to play after Kieran Donaghy set-up Jack O’Shea, but he blazed over. 

The Rockies held firm in the closing stages to seal the win. They face East Kerry in the opening round of the county SFC next weekend.

Elsewhere, the quarter-final line-up in Mayo senior football has been decided following today’s final round of group games.

In today’s action, the Neal saw off Kiltane in Group 4 on a scoreline of 3-15 to 3-9 and Davitts went down by 0-6 to 1-10 to Ballina Stephenites in Group 1.

The quarter-final draw paired 2020 finalists Breaffy with Belmullet, champions Knockmore versus Ballintubber, Westport against Ballina and Garrymore with Castlebar Mitchels.  

In the relegation play-off semi-finals, Davitts will meet Kiltane and Aghamore clash with Balla.
