Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 21/11/2018

U20 Championship – Hard luck to our u20 lads who were in action in the Championship semi-final against St Manchans on Saturday. The lads put in a strong performance but were unable to overcome Manachans losing by a score of 4:13 to 2:11

Awards Night – Paddy O’Connor has been nominated for volunteer of the year by Leitrim partnership. A Fantastic achievement and a worthy nomination for Paddy a man that gives 100% of his time and commitment to the club wether it be fundraising or running the hurling club there is certainly no one more deserving than Paddy who has single handily kept hurling going in Ballinamore for the last 30 years.

Tommy Moran will be inaugurated into the Leitrim GAA hall of fame, Tommy a fantastic ambassador and a man that has given everything not just to Ballinamore and Leitrim GAA but also to the community of Ballinamore. This award is well deserved any recognises a life time of work and dedication given by Tommy.

Also recognised will be Tom Prior who has been named the Leitrim GAA county player of the year. A fantastic achievement for a fantastic player

Everyone at the club would like to pass on their thanks and gratitude to these three men and wish them well at the awards night
