Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 11/07/2018

Dunnes ACL Division One – Well done to the senior lads who had an excellent victory against the neighbours Aughawillian on Saturday night in Aughawillan. As with any match with the neighbours it was a tight and hard fought affair with only a point to separate both teams at the end with us finishing victorious with a final score of 0:10 to 0:09. Next up is a away game against St Marys on Wednesday in Carrick at 20:00 followed by a home game against Ballinaglera at 1830 on Saturday

Sponsorship – As you all know sponsorship is the cornerstone of any successful club and we as a club are very lucky to have some wonderful sponsors who support us each and every season, this week KBG Chartered Accountants sponsored our senior lads, providing them with some great kit bags, which were presented by our very own Denis Dolan on behalf of KGB to club captain Liam. We would like to thank Denis and KBG for their continued support.

Newtowngore Engineering Under 17 Championship – Under 17s a good start to the championship campaign with a win over Fenagh. Next game is against St. Joseph’s in the park on Monday evening at 7pm. All support will be greatly appreciated.

Dunnes ACL Division 2 – The Division 2 lads take on Kiltubrid on Saturday evening in the Paric at 20:00, after the Senior game. Your support would be greatly appreciated

Leitrim Minors – Hard luck to the Leitrim minors and our own Tom Prior and Francis McGovern who were defeated against Galway on Friday evening, defeats are difficult to take on occasion but the lads should take heart and encouragement on the improvements they have made so far this year

A Night Not to be missed!!!  The wait is nearly over this Thursday night “This is Your Life” This event promises to be a great night of entertainment and one not to be missed. The event is part of the Gerry Farry lord Mayor campaign for Ballinamore Festival with all proceeds going towards this year’s family festival. Tickets are 10euro and can be purchased on the night

Cill Mor Gaels – Our u12’s amalgamated with Kiltubrid GAA took part in the u12 cross county league. We fared very well in this competition, with the lads making it all the way to the semi-final. The ssemi-finaltook place against Clonguish Gaels and was an absolute belter of a game. The lads got off to a great start hitting the opening score with a goal, once Clonguish settled into the game they began to show their dominance scoring 1-5 without reply.

The lads dug deep and snatched another goal and a point to close the gap to just 2 points at the break. In the second half, Clonguish came out strong and once again controlled the game for large periods of the half scoring another 1-6. However, the lads were not going to be beaten that easily and in a late surge we gabbed another 2-2, unfortunately, we ran out of time and Clonguish advanced to the final.

The game ended 2-11 to 4-3, but the lads have to be commended for the way they showed such courage and determination never giving up and fighting to the final whistle. A semi-final was a great achievement but if the lads were to be rewarded for their efforts all year a final would have been far more just. Special thanks to the mentors from both Ballinamore and Kiltubrid for working so hard with the players over the course of the competition.

Barna Recycling U13 Championship – The u13 championship starts this Thursday when our young players take on Gail Na Meilge at 19.00 away from home, again these young players would love your support

U9 and U11 – Well done to our u9 and u11 players who took part in a great blitz on Monday evening against the neighbours Aughnasheelin. It was a great evening for the players and special thanks to Aughnasheelin for hosting and organising the game and of course all the players, parents and mentors for making it happen.

Ballinamore Hurling – A massive well done to our u13 hurlers who made it through to the final after overcoming a gallant Woodford Gaels last week in the Tain Og league It was a great team effort with outstanding performances from everyone. Congratulations to the trainers and players and we wish them well in the final, hopefully as many of you as possible can make the trip out to watch these great players
