Ballinamore Sean OHeslin’s GAA Club Notes 07/11/2018

Dunnes Bar Senior League Final – Hard luck to the team and management, they put up a very brave fight and performed well on Sunday. The luck was not with us from the start conceding a penalty after a couple of minutes which Philip brilliantly saved only for the rebound to bounce around before being forced in, Philip was again on hand not long later with a world class save, and again only moments later Glencar scored a goal. The lads did well and continued to fight hard and early in the second half we were level. Philip was called to action again with a harsh penalty which he again saved, this lifted the supporters and the team and we kept pushing forward only to concede. In the end the gap was 4 points and Glencar were champions.

A special thanks to the players and management team, it’s been a long hard season for you and we appreciate the effort and sacrifices you have made to help the club reach the final and to progress this year. Defeats are hard to take but as we saw after loosing two intermediate finals they can often be a spring board for something great and hopefully our time will come
