DINGLE, DR CROKES, SOUTH Kerry and Killarney Legion are the first four teams to have secured spots in the quarter-finals of this year’s Kerry senior football championship.

The quartet all won their Round 2A fixtures over the weekend to progress directly to the last eight with the winners of the Round 3 fixtures set to join them at that stage.

Killarney Legion progressed this afternoon when they defeated West Kerry by 2-14 to 2-9 with first-half goals from Jamie O’Sullivan and Conor Keane paving the way. Yesterday Dingle, Dr Crokes and divisional outfit South Kerry all triumphed in their Round 2A fixtures. Dingle emerged 2-9 to 1-11 victors against Kerins O’Rahilly’s with Paul and Niall Geaney bagging their goals.

Reigning champions Dr Crokes ran out victors by nine points, 0-17 to 0-8, against St Kieran’s with South Kerry defeating St Brendan’s last night 1-12 to 1-9.

The Round 2B ties today saw Rathmore, Kenmare District, Mid Kerry and Austin Stacks all exit the championship. 

Kenmare Shamrocks won out 1-13 to 2-9 after extra-time against Rathmore while there was also a narrow success for Shannon Rangers by 0-14 to 1-10 against Kenmare District.
