Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 06/04/2018

Dunnes Bar ACL Division 1 – It was a great start to the league for the seniors with a good performance against Leitrim Gaels on a beautiful evening in the Pairc. The lads were always in control despite the contentious early sending off of Shane Moran in the first half. With the reduction to 14, the lads continued to play some excellent football and led by a score of 0:7 to 0:4 at halftime. Ballinamore again started well in the second half and remained in control with some excellent long range shooting with Niall McGovern scoring a couple of wonderful points to help kill off the Gaels fight back. The final score was Ballinamore 0:13 Leitrim Gaels 0:11. Next up is Gaeil na Meilge on Saturday at 1830 in the Pairc. 

New Referees – Good news for the club is that two club members have completed the course for new referees. Darren Reynolds and Brian Beirne will be taking up the whistle at matches shortly. It is some time since anyone from the club has taken up refereeing. Go n-éirí go geal leis an mbeirt acu

Dunnes Bar ACL Division 2 – Our Division two team started their campaign against Cloone at the weekend and were narrowly defeated by a score off 2:08 to 1:09. Next up is Gaeil na Meilge on Sunday at 1200 in the Pairc

Barna Recycling U13 League – Our u13s were defeated on Thursday last by a much more experienced St Marys side. The game was even enough at halftime with the scoreline 2.2 to 3 in favour of the home side. The second half saw St Marys take control of the game, but fair play to our lads they never gave up and fought right to the end. A Few goal chances presented themselves but unfortunately for us we were unable to convert. It ended on a scoreline of 5.13 to 5, one which did not show a true reflection of the lads’ efforts. Darragh Gavin, Michael McBrien, Dessie Wisely, Neill Sweeney, Cathal McCarthy, Michael Keegan, Paul Honeyman, Naoise McManus, Rian McManus, Harry Prior, Louis Quinn, Cian McGovern, Gavin Darcy, Tommy Smith, Colum Gartland, Kaylon Murray.

Leitrim GAA Coaching – Leitrim Coaching and game are seeking to recruit additional coaches to join our existing academy coaching teams at u14,15,16 and 17 grades.

Coaches who feel they would like to get involved are asked to contact County coaching officer Hughie Clinton (083-8575304) or County games manager Thomas Keenan (087-6591049) and will need to have completed the award 1 youth/adult coaching course, the safeguarding 1 (code of ethics) course and be Garda vetted through the GAA
