A club in Kerry have released a statement after a video of a club flag being burnt was seen on social media.

The video was shared widely on social media in the aftermath of the South Kerry final between Skellig Rangers and Dromid Pearses last weekend. Dromid Pearses won on a scoreline of 2-7 to 0-7 in dreadful conditions to regain the Jack Murphy cup for the first time since 2019. Niall O'Shea scored all bar one of Dromid Pearses scores.

However, their celebrations have been tainted by the video of a flag in their rivals' colours being set alight.

There have also been reports of the club's good luck signs around their parish being damaged after the final. Skellig Rangers have released the following statement condemning these actions of vandalism to their Facebook page.

We, in Skellig Rangers, have been aware of acts of vandalism and of a video seemingly showing a club flag being burnt. We condemn these actions by individuals and the club will be making no further comment.

Worrying Trend

This isn't the first instance of club merchandise being damaged in Kerry this year. A Currow jersey was recorded being set ablaze in the North Kerry village of Knocknagoshel around October.

According to Radio Kerry, Castleislands Desmonds, the club's parish in which the jersey was burnt have condemned the action.

Castleislands Desmonds said no player or member of its club was involved in the burning of the Currow jersey and that it condemned the incident, which occurred during a private event.

The issue was also raised at a meeting of the  Kerry county board. A Currow Spokesperson told the county's newspaper the Kerryman that the club have dealt with the issue.
