Club football round-up: Quarter-finals confirmed in Kerry and Donegal

A round-up of the weekend’s club Gaelic football action, as the quarter-final line-up was confirmed in Kerry.


Dr Crokes edged old rivals Austin Stacks in an epic contest on Friday night, with extra-time needed. The 2017 All-Ireland champions led by five points going into injury-time, but a Kieran Donaghy goal helped the Tralee outfit salvage a draw. Nonetheless, Crokes had too much in extra-time as they made it through, winning 3-19 to 2-17.

Elsewhere, Templenoe marked their first senior championship match with victory over Dingle, Killarney Legion beat Kerins O’Rahilly’s, and Kenmare Shamrocks overcame Shannon Rangers.
