Slaney Rovers 3 - 1 Dolmen Celtic

Slaney Rovers 3

Dolmen Celtic 1

Another impressive showing from Rovers saw them move to the top of the table, but with New Oak just two points adrift and with four games in hand it’s likely to be a short spell on top.

Rovers started well but it took half an hour to open their account, a neat back heel from Dominic Byrne finding the net with the Dolmen defence marked absent. 5 minutes later it was 2-0, Byrne turning provider as his corner was headed home by Peter Kehoe. It wasn’t all one-way traffic and Rovers keeper Fergal Harmon had to make two good saves to preserve the lead into the break.

Harmon was again called into action early in the second half, this time saving a penalty as Dolmen applied the pressure. That pressure eventually yielded a goal on 75 minutes to leave the minimum between the teams. Hopes of a point for Celtic were dashed shortly afterwards however as Daniel O’Brien got on the end of a long clearance from Harmon to head Rovers 3-1 ahead as they eased to the points and reward the efforts of Eoin Curran, Lubomir Lesko and Aaron Broughall.

Dolmen Celtic 3 - 3 Slaney Rovers A

Dolmen Celtic 3

Slaney Rovers A 3 AET

Slaney win 3-2 on Pens

Fergal Harmon was the hero for Rovers as the keeper saved three penalties in the shoot out to book Slaney a place in the next round.

Slaney will feel that they had to win this game twice having squandered a 3-1 lead late on before Harmon’s heroics eventually saw them through. Rovers had the better of the early exchanges and after going close with a couple of early chances Peter Kehoe fired the visitors ahead on the half hour. Dolmen’s response was an equaliser on the stroke of half time.

The second half saw Slaney dominate. A fine lob from Dominic Byrne rebounded off the crossbar before Lubomir Lesko carved open the Celtic defence to set up Kehoe for his second goal as the visitors retook the lead on the hour. That lead was doubled shortly afterwards when Kehoe turned provider for Dominic Byrne to make it 3-1. It appeared that would be enough but two late strikes from Dolmen forced the game to extra time and with that failing to produce a goal it was left to penalties to decide a winner. Harmon proving to be the match winner with three fine saves to see Rovers through, rewarding strong performances from Lubomir Lesko, Andy Foley and Rory McKiernan.

Dolmen Celtic v Killeshin FC
Premier Division 26/01 11:00
Dolmen Celtic 5 - 3 Killeshin FC

Dolmen Celtic 5

Killeshin FC 3

Dolmen started quick and were rewarded with an early goal from an own goal with the ball being headed over the Killeshin keeper by his own defender who misjudged the cross. The tables turned quick as Killeshin equalised with the next attack which was a well worked move which saw a great cross from Franky Dowling headed in at the near post by Liam Serry. Dolmen took the upper hand once again when Paul Connors netted from a twenty-yard dead ball. Killeshin fought back to level the game again from a long throw in which lead to a goal mouth scramble for the ball which ended up in Dolmen’s goal when Liam Serry smashed it in. Dolmen went ahead for the third time when Killeshin’s defence made a mistake and Joe Doran was quick to pounce and finish the chance to leave the home team leading at the break. After the break Killeshin once again equalised when a poor mistake in the Dolmen defence let Declan Bolton score. Both teams had spells of possession but Keelan Lacey hit a wonder strike to be envied by Pirlo himself from just outside of the box to hit the top corner leaving the opposition number one with no chance. Dolmen killed the game off when they took a two-goal lead for the first time after a great goal from Danny Thompson.

Liam Dempsey was outstanding for the yellow and black with three assists. Best for Killeshin were Ciaran Walsh, Niall Scully and Liam Serry.

Hanover Harps v Dolmen Celtic
Premier Division 12/01 11:00
Hanover Harps 2 - 2 Dolmen Celtic

Hanover Harps 2

Dolmen Celtic 2

Celtic recovered from 2-0 down at the break to claim a point thanks to a brace from Joe Doran, the second one a real beauty.

Hanover dominated for long periods in the first half and should really have been further ahead at half time. The opening goal arrived on 25 minutes, Conor Clack’s pinpoint cross from the left was headed home by Mark Kelly. Cathal Coughlan flashed a 25-yard volley inches wide moments later before Harps did get their second, Eoghan Byrne firing low across Jamie Hennessy into the bottom corner for 2-0. Harps kept the pressure up and another cross from Clack found the head of Kelly again, this time though it flew inches the wrong side of the post.

The opening stages of the second half were fairly low key but the introduction of Kevin Power and Paul Core sparked some life into the Celtic team and with 20 minutes left they got back into the match. Keelan Lacey’s cross wasn’t dealt with by the Harps rear guard and Doran pounced on the loose ball to make it 2-1. Lacey almost levelled the game shortly afterwards but his curling effort came back off the crossbar. Harps had chances of their own, Vincent Oba coming closest as his strike from the edge of the area was tipped around the post by Hennessy for a corner. With ten minutes left the sides were level, Power’s long throw from the left was only partially cleared and Doran threw himself into the air as his scissor kick flew in off the underside of the crossbar for 2-2. Mark Kelly saw his close rage effort saved as Harps went in search of a winner but on the balance of play in the second half a draw was probably a fair result.

Best for Hanover included Adam McCarron, Conor Clack, Johnny Waters and Stephen Chalton. Celtic had solid showings from Jamie Hennessy, Graham Delaney, Keelan Lacey and Joe Doran.

Dolmen Celtic v Parkville United
Premier Division 05/01 11:00
Dolmen Celtic 1 - 3 Parkville United

Dolmen Celtic 1

Parkville United 3

Performance of the day definitely went to Parkville as they took to the field with just ten players after their squad was depleted through injuries.

The win even more impressive when you consider Celtic won the reverse fixture 5-1. The ten men took the game to their hosts from the start and were unlucky not to be in front early on as Paul Fitzgerald went close. As Dolmen grew into the game, they began to pose a threat at the other end but the centre back pairing of Robbie Sheridan and his 16-year-old son Dylan was proving a tough nut to crack and the sides went into half time goalless.

The second period was only five minutes in when United hit the front, Gaz Doyle firing home from all of 25 yards for 1-0. Dolmen were rattled and Tom Pollard almost doubled the lead only to be denied by a smart save. However, the ten men wouldn’t be denied for long and on the hour mark it was 2-0, Fitzgerald keeping his composure as he slotted home after good work from Sam Sheridan. Ten minutes later Dolmen lost a man to red card to even up the numbers and as is often the case the sending off spurred on the hosts and they duly scored to halve the deficit on 75 minutes. United keeper Sean Tompkins pulled off a couple of excellent saves to keep Celtic at bay before teenager Dylan Sheridan rounded off a superb performance for both himself and his team to a well taken goal to put the destination of the points beyond doubt.

Sam Sheridan was the standout performer for United on a day where all ten stood up to be counted.

St Patricks Boys 3 - 2 Dolmen Celtic

St Patrick’s Boys 3

Dolmen Celtic 2

Three goals in a six-minute spell either side of half time saw Pat’s come from behind to win on Sunday.

An open first quarter saw plenty of effort from both sides but little in the way of scoring chances until a lapse at a set piece saw Kevin Power rise unchallenged to head Celtic ahead just before the half hour mark. Pat’s were patient in their reply and constant probing around the Dolmen penalty area yielded a free kick 25 yards out on 41 minutes, Mark Delaney perfectly placing the dead ball beyond the keeper to make it 1-1. Three minutes later the hosts struck again, Owen Murphy cut in from the left, his effort was saved but Nathan Doyle was on hand to tap home and sent the Boys into half time 2-1 up.

Within a minute of the restart it was 3-1 Mazin taking on and beating three defenders before firing home from the edge of the box a magic six-minute spell for St Pat’s as Celtic were left head scratching. To their credit the visitors regrouped and midway through the half Power netted again to leave the minimum between the teams but despite applying all the late pressure Celtic couldn’t find a way past a solid Pat’s rear-guard and the hosts held on to claim a vital three points which put some daylight between them and the relegation places.

Best for St Pat’s included Tomas Murphy and Mark Delaney. Celtic's best included Kevin Power and Patrick Hutton.

Parkville United 1 - 5 Dolmen Celtic

Parkville United 1

Dolmen Celtic 5

Celtic followed up last weekend’s emphatic win in Killeshin with another thumping win on the road, Joe Doran’s first half hat trick doing most of the damage as United struggled to contain the visitors.

Celtic flew out of the starting blocks and Doran had them ahead within 6 minutes with a neat finish. Constant pressure yielded goal number two ten minutes later, Doran again on the mark after bursting through the centre of the United rear guard before picking his spot. Parkville had no answer and on the half hour Doran netted his third from the penalty spot after Danny Thompson was fouled in the area.

The second half saw Parkville apply the early pressure and deservedly pulled a goal back on the hour, Tom Pollard finding the net at the second attempt after his first effort was well saved. United kept pressing but left themselves exposed to quick breaks and Dolmen duly took advantage of the gaps at the back. Paul Connor set Andy Brennan away and he rounded the keeper before slotting into an empty net to make it 4-1 on 80 minutes. United’s Paul Fitzgerald saw his shot brilliantly saved before another swift break from Celtic saw John Nangle cross from the left to set up Brennan for his second to cap a fine win for the Visitors and reward for the efforts of Joe Doran, Andy Brennan and Graham Delaney.

United’s best were Gareth Doyle, Tom Pollard and Adam Feeney.

Killeshin FC 2 - 6 Dolmen Celtic

Killeshin FC 2

Dolmen Celtic 6

A third win in a stop start type season for Celtic see's them up to fourth in the Premier Division table. With Killeshin slow to start they were punished by the visitors with 2 goals in the opening 12 minutes, Graham Delaney with both. Joe Doran provided the first, his run and cross setting up Delaney to open the scoring. A powerful header for Delaney made it 2-0 shortly afterwards and Celtic were in the box seat. Killeshin were thrown a life line on 18 minutes when Will Opoku scored from close range to narrow the gap. That joy was short lived however and Colin Nolan was given the freedom of the six yard box at a corner as he duly headed home to restore Celtic's 2 goal advantage. Killeshin's woe's increased before half time as they wasted a penalty, Jamie Hennessy with the save before Celtic made the most of the let off to strike for a fourth and effectively kill the game off, Danny Thompson with the goal, curling home a 25 yard free kick to see Dolmen into the break 4-1 up. Killeshin did pull a goal back shortly after the restart, a mix up in the visitors back line resulting in an own goal. That spurred on Killeshin but as they pushed forward they left gaps at the back and Mark Davis exploited that space to make it 5-2 just after the hour. To their credit the Killeshin lads never dropped their heads but Celtic had the last word, Andy Brennan getting himself on the scoresheet with 8 minutes left. Best for Celtic were Graham Delaney, Colin Nolan and Micheal Meaney. Killeshin's best included Liam Dunne and Barry Ryan.

Dolmen Celtic 1 - 2 Slaney Rovers

Dolmen Celtic 1

Slaney Rovers 2

First half goals from Seanie Furlong and Dominic Byrne earned Rovers a first away win of the season and lifted them up to third in the table.

Dolmen started the better of the sides but Fergal Harmon in the Rovers goal was proving a tough nut to crack. First the Rovers net minder tipped a Danny Thompson effort over the crossbar and then went one better as he produced a superb save from John Nangle's penalty on 15 minutes, the spot kick awarded for a foul on Thompson. Rovers had no such troubles in front of goal and when Aaron Broughall teed up Furlong, he made no mistake from close range to put the visitors ahead. That lead became 2-0 ten minutes before half time when Kyle Lawlor’s pass opened the Celtic defence for Byrne to net number two and put Rovers in the driving seat at the interval.

The second half was end to end stuff with Celtic eventually converting a chance with 15 minutes left. Thompson was again fouled in the box and this time Mark Davis took responsibility for the spot kick and slotted past Harmon to leave the minimum between the teams. Dolmen threw everything at the visitors in the last ten minutes but Rovers held firm to take the points and reward the efforts of Eoin Curran, Kyle Lawlor and Regan Murphy.

Celtic’s best were Mark Davis, Danny Thompson and Michael Meaney.

Dolmen Celtic 3

St Patrick’s Boys 2

Dolmen had to withstand a second half rally from St Pat’s before claiming the win to move into the middle of the table while Pat’s slip to second from bottom.

With both teams moving the ball well, it was surprising that it took half an hour for the opening goal to arrive, Celtic’s Joe Doran driving the ball into the roof of the net for 1-0. Five minutes before the break it was 2-0 to the hosts, Doran fouled in the penalty area and Colin Nolan duly converting from 12 yards as Dolmen went into half time comfortably ahead.

Things got better for Celtic ten minutes after the restart, Doran latching onto a through ball before finding the net for 3-0. But Pat’s weren’t about to roll over and just after the hour substitute Padraic Quinlan reduced the arrears. Ten minutes later it was really game on when Mazin Almujarfi capitalised on some poor defending in the Dolmen area to net St Pat’s second. The visitors piled men forward as they went in search of a point but some resolute defending from Celtic saw them hang on for the win thanks largely to the efforts of Joe Doran, Paul Core and Colin Nolan.

St Pat’s best included Chris Gaul, Conor Clack and Liam Byrne.

Crettyard United 4

Dolmen Celtic 0

A brace from Lee Salter helped United ease to the points and join New Oak, Hanover and Slaney on seven points at the top of the table, although New Oak have played a game less than the rest.

The hosts dominated from the start but it took 30 minutes to break down a stubborn Celtic rear guard, Mikey Byrne’s persistence paying off as he slotted home at the second attempt after Jamie Hennessy saved his initial effort. Seven minutes later and the lead was doubled, Anto Fitzpatrick teasing the Dolmen defence before teeing up Salter who fired low into the corner to give United a commanding half time lead.

With Dolmen offering little going forward it was Crettyard and Salter that finished the game as a contest midway through the half, Fitzpatrick again tormenting the Celtic back line providing another assist for United’s ace marksman. With five minutes left on the clock debutant Luke Ramsbottom threaded a neat pass into the path of Aaron Morris who scored at the second attempt to wrap up the scoring.

Best for Crettyard included Mark Lyons, Anto Fitzpatrick and Bobby Dowling. A good team performance from Dolmen with standout performances from Kevin Power, Paul Connors and Colin Nolan.

Dolmen got their Premier Division season off to a winning start, Joe Doran and John Nangle both netted twice as they won by the odd goal in seven.

The visitors got off to the perfect start, Doran netting twice in the first 17 minutes as Dolmen led 2-0. Ballymurphy regrouped and began to get a foothold in the game but it wasn't until five minutes before the break that they reduced the arrears, Thomas Doyle setting up Kevin Foley to score and leave the minimum between the teams at the break.

Ten minutes into the second half the sides were level, Doyle was fouled in the area and Foley netted his second from the spot. Foley then headed an effort off the crossbar before Dolmen struck again, Nangle giving them the lead on 70 minutes. When Nangle netted again with ten minutes remaining it looked like that was it but Ballymurphy found the target again, this time through Thomas Doyle to set up the grandstand finish. The hosts pressed for the final few minutes but despite the pressure they couldn’t break down a resolute Dolmen rear-guard and the visitors claimed the points.

Best for Ballymurphy included Kevin Foley, Anto Jordan and Thomas Doyle.

Hanover Harps 5 - 1 Dolmen Celtic

Hanover Harps 5

Dolmen Celtic 1

Harps eased into the second round of the KCLR Shield after this all Premier Division tie.

Harps started the better of the sides and Dylan Walsh almost opened the scoring in the first minute, only a fine save keeping his effort out. Efforts from distance followed from Simon O’Shea and Walsh before Harps eventually opened the scoring midway through the half. Dylan Walsh swung in a corner and Ray Walker got his head on it to put Hanover one up. Celtic’s response was a Danny Thompson shot which was smartly saved by Craig Walker ten minutes before the break.

If the first half was an even affair the second was completely one sided as Harps upped a gear and reaped the rewards. On 55 minutes they netted their second, Ray Walker again using his head to make it 2-0. Ten minutes later the third arrived, Dylan Walsh stealing the ball from a defender 25 yards from goal before curling a beauty into the top corner. Hanover kept pushing and the goals kept coming, Simon O’Shea also finding the top corner from 20 yards with a sweet volley made it 4-0 before quick thinking from Johnny Waters set O’Shea free to slot his second and Harps fifth with two minutes left. Dolmen did find a goal from a corner on 90 minutes but was too little too late for the visitors.

Best for Hanover included Craig Walker, Phil Neenan, Dillon Murphy and Niall Kenny

Nurney Villa A 1

Dolmen Celtic 6

Premier side Dolmen got their better of Division One side Nurney in this Carlow Cup encounter played in glorious conditions in Nurney on Sunday.

The home side started the better of the teams but still found themselves behind after a defensive error allowed the visitors to open the scoring. Nurney bounced back and equalised when Dan Kearney’s long clearance found Dean Farrell and he duly slotted home.

Nurney went behind in the second half when they conceded a soft penalty. Shortly after they in turn were denied a penalty and this seemed to deflate the Villa and they ran out of steam as Dolmen ran out easy winners at the final whistle.

Best for Nurney were Joe Byrne, Philip Murphy and Niall Scully.
