Back to back home wins for Celtic see them flying high in their first top flight season while Killeshin will be disappointed to lose their opening league game after making huge progress last year.

Ballymurphy were into their stride early and hit the front on 17 minutes, Jack Foley saw his effort saved but Thomas Doyle was on hand to slot home the loose ball for the lead. Luke Roche was denied by an excellent save as Celtic went in search of a second but gradually Killeshin began to get a foothold. Ian Brennan on Killeshin’s right was getting plenty of ball but his quality deliveries weren’t matched with quality finishing and it remained 1-0 at the interval.

The second half saw the visitors level within five minutes, Shane Coakley finding the net from a free kick. This signalled a period of dominance for the visitors but they failed to convert chances into goals and with ten minutes left Celtic made them pay. A brilliant move started by Mike O’Grady set Jack Foley away, his pass found Luke Roche on the edge of box who delightfully nutmegged the last defender and rifled a shot to the top corner for the lead. Killeshin again responded and had an effort chalked off for a tight offside before time ran out on the visitors and Celtic held on for the win.

Best for Ballymurphy were Paul Foley, Anto Jordan and Mark Maloney. Killeshin’s best were Brian Mullen, Liam Dunne and Ian Brennan
