In Pictures: Portarlington reach Paidi O Se Tournament final


The Portarlington senior footballers have reached the final of the Paidi O Se Tournament in Kerry.

Martin Murphy’s outfit are playing their first competitive games under his guidance and they have gotten off to the perfect start.

Portarlington have reached the final defeating both Ballydesmond of Cork in the morning and then An Gaeltacht in the semi final this afternoon.

Daragh Galvin, a Laois minor last year, struck two goals in the quarter final before Steven O’Neill bagged a late winner in stormy conditions in An Gaeltacht’s home venue.

Portarlington will now take on co-hosts Dingle in tomorrow’s decider.

GAA clubs from the United Arab Emirates, Scotland, England and 17 counties across the four provinces of Ireland are taking part in the 30th anniversary of the Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidi Ó Sé this year.

The festival, founded by Kerry iconic footballer Páidi Ó Sé, has attracted over 15,000 club players over 30 years and has grown into a major international GAA event with senior, intermediate and junior competitions as well as teams attending cultural and social events at Comórtas HQ, Páidí Ó Sé’s pub in Ventry, Co. Kerry.

Best of luck to the Port lads tomorrow!
