All of our players, coaches and Committee members were deeply saddened by the recent passing of Club President, Jimmy O’Sullivan. Jimmy joined Inter during the 1989/90 season with teenage sons Ken and Alan, working as a fitness trainer and then team coach during this first season, joining the committee soon after.He managed the A team from Division 2, Division 1 into Premier Division and brought the team to the Reserve Cup Final in 1992, winning both the Greyhound Cup Final in 1997 and the CastleBar Cup Final in 1998. During this time, the team narrowly missed out on the Premier League title under Jimmy’s charge.
Jimmy was instrumental in the purchase of Inter Kenmare Park in 1998, the development of two pitches subsequent build of the club house and dressing room facilities.
Jimmy became involved with Kerry District League as a committee member and was manager of the Kerry Oscar Traynor team with the assistance of John O’Regan KDL. Despite this commitment to Kerry soccer, Jimmy was always involved with Inter Kenmare both and off the field and epitomised commitment, loyalty and sheer passion for the game.
Jimmy was elected the first President of Inter Kenmare FC in 2012 and remained so until present day. Inter Kenmare would like to offer their sincere condolences to Jimmy’s family. He will be greatly missed and was a true gentleman. May he rest in peace.
