Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 11/09/2018

Connacht Gold Senior Championship – The lads were in action on Saturday in Pairc Sean against Mohil in a match to determine the final positions in the table and establish who are opponents would be in the quarterfinals. It was a tough game played in difficult conditions with Mohill winning the match with a score of 0:14 to 1:07. The loss means that we finished the group on 5 points in fourth place and will now play Glencar Manor in the quarterfinals with this game due to take place on Saturday in Pairc Sean at 18:00, your support for the lads in this massive game would be greatly appreciated.

Smith’s Monumental Leitrim Intermediate Championship – Our second team were in action on Sunday against Annaduff losing a tight game by two points with the final score 1:12 to 0:13 in favour of Annaduff. The loss though unfortunate does not stop us from progressing to the quarter-final stages after finishing fourth in our group on 4 points just ahead of Carrigallen. We have now been drawn against Leitrim Gaels in a match to be played on Sunday in Pairc Sean at 18:00, this promises to a titanic match against a team that has won four and drawn one, your support for the lads in this match would be greatly appreciated.
