Managers James Hurley knows that the task ahead of them will be a tough one but knows his side are capable of going further in this tournament and maybe even relive the heroics when they won this completion a few years ago . Killarney Celtic will be looking again towards players like Cathal o Shea , William Courtney , Fergal o Donoghue and Conor Randall to hopefully get them to a Munster 1/4 Final . Killarney Celtic’s path to this round has seen them defeat neighbours Killarney Athletic on a 7-0 score line in the first round . In the second round they defeated Fenit Samphires by six goals to one . The third round saw them get past St Brendans Park by four goals to three in a thrilling Kerry area Final .
