Fáilte hoping to create new Legends

The Fáilte Legends: Last year’s winners

IT’S summertime and the eagerly-awaited kick-off for the annual Killarney Athletic soccer sevens is rapidly approaching.

The event will get underway on Monday, June 24 at the club grounds and, once again, the main sponsor is Killarney Credit Union.

This year marks the 43rd anniversary of the first summer soccer and it has now been streamlined to be run over two weeks, with games taking place Monday to Friday and underage games being played on the new astro turf pitch.
The finals are scheduled to take place on Thursday and Friday, July 11/12 and there will be separate competitions for senior men, over 35 and underage boys from 10-16 years.

Last year The Fáilte Legends – made up largely of Killarney Celtic’s first team – clinched the Premier Cup with an impressive 5-2 win against Liebherr.
