Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 14/11/2018

Senior Team Management – The club would like to take this opportunity to pass on our sincere thanks to our senior management team who have made the decision to step down. We would like to thank Manager Paul Prior and his selectors Jason Kellett, Sean McCartin, Paddy Prior and Joe Feeley for the tremendous work they have done for the club over the last three years. During this time we have won an intermediate championship, played in Semi Finals of the senior championship and contested the league final. The management team hhasdone fantastic work developing a group of fine young men into a team that has grown in stature and belief during their time in charge. The brand of football they have developed and instilled in the team was exciting to watch and helped draw new and old down to the Páirc.  We would like to thank them for the time, effort and dedication they have shown the club and wish them well in the future.

Underage Amalgamation – It was announced recently at a club meeting that our underage teams comprising the under 13, 15’s and 17’s would amalgamate with Kiltubrid GAA. The new team will be called Seàn MacDiarmada Gaels with the colours black and amber and the St Bridget’s cross as a crest. Black and amber represent the original Leitrim GAA colours and the St Bridgets cross is symbolic of both Ballinamore and Kiltubrid. We would like to wish the new club well for the coming season and encourage anyone that would like to assist in the set up of the new amalgamation to make themselves known.

Hurling – We have indoor hurling on Monday evenings in The Sports Hall. Due to the large numbers of children participating, we need help with supervision and coaching. If you can help in any way please contact Paddy @0879528944. Indoor Hurling is on every Monday evening in the Sports Complex, U11 training is at 17:30 followed by U13 at 18:30 cost is 2 euro to cover the cost of the hall and all gear is provided U14/15 hurling training is also taking place on Saturdays on the back pitch at 11am, all gear provided and everyone is welcome
