ABOUT KERRY FC 🟢 

KEY PLAYER

Ryan Kelliher is the first player in the history of Kerry FC to sign a long-term professional contract at the club recently, seeing him stay with Kerry until 2025. You can certainly see why, contributing 8 goals so far this season in the league. The Killarney native is making his debut season in the League Of Ireland after being with Killarney Celtic as a youth before joining Kerry FC’s academy.

BILLY DENNEHY

“Yeah look going into the game, Galway especially with the incentive they have going into the game will make it a lot more challenging but football is football. We know it’s going to be a difficult game, but that’s what we’re in this league for. The lads like these challenges of playing against the top teams, it’s what we want to compare ourselves against.”
