Cup cracker in store but numbers are limited

Killarney Celtic Chairman Paul Sherry

KERRY champions Killarney Celtic are back on the FAI Junior Cup glory trail but there will be a strict limit placed on the number of people allowed to cheer them on from the sidelines.

The hoops will entertain Fairview Rangers of Limerick in a glamour quarter-final at Celtic Park this coming Saturday (5.00pm).

But because of the greatly reduced numbers allowed to attend outdoor events due to Covid-19, the €10 ticket only event is limited to a total of 200, including squads, officials, mentors, medics, FAI officers, security and the press.

“I regret to advise that the number of tickets available to go on general sale will be very limited,” said Celtic Chairman Paul Sherry.

“I have tried to allow those who attend all the games and follow the team all over the country to have first preference for tickets,” he added.

Mr Sherry acknowledged, however, that it is inevitable that a lot of loyal fans, members and supporters will be disappointed but it completely outside of the club’s control.

All tickets must be paid for and collected in advance and the contact tracing information on the reverse of the ticket must be completed before arriving at the gate.

All patrons should enter the grounds via the small gate from the housing estate adjacent to the clubhouse.

“We are looking forward to an exciting cup tie and while I am very aware that we can’t all be there, I am sure everyone will join me in wishing the squad every success in this very important game,” the chairman said.
