Dingle got their Kerry senior football championship campaign underway this afternoon with a narrow two point victory over Dr. Croke's at Austin Stack Park.
Playing in their opening group stage encounter one week after being crowned Kerry GAA senior club champions, five of the six starting forwards were Geaney's.
Mikey Geaney, Dylan Geaney, Niall Geaney, Conor Geaney and Paul Geaney all made strong impressions in what was an entertaining and lively match.

Geaney's strike in the 51st minute pushed Dingle back into the lead after Dr. Croke's had dominated the second period.
The former Kerry panellist had nine scoring chances on the day and clinically managed to take them all.
Other players to impress were Tom O'Sullivan and Paul Geaney who both were involved in a lot of good work.
Dr Croke's had their chances particularly in the 38th minute where somehow the ball did not find the back of the net.
Cian McMahon's effort struck the upright, landing in the path of Evan Looney who's follow up was deflected onto the crossbar by Niall Geaney.
Both sides will take confidence from this afternoon's tie and will be hoping to contest for the Bishop Moynihan Cup.
Dingle will be looking to win their first title since 1948, while Dr. Croke's who dominated throughout the 2010's will look to win their first in five years.
The other two teams in the group are Na Gaeil and St Brendan's Board who went head-to-head on Friday evening.
Na Gaeil, who won the county intermediate title in 2021 and played senior football for the first time last year, eased to a comfortable victory over the district side, winning by 15 points in the end.
