Ballymanus club notes

April 16, 2018

The lads had a good win against neighbours Ballinacor in Ballinacor on Sunday morning. Playing with only the bare 15, the pathway to success in this one was made in the first half with three well taken goals from Roan, Brendan and Padraig. Ballinacor got a goal of their own approaching the half time whistle, but at the break it was 3-6 to 1-3 in our favour. The second half was a more cagey affair with one seven points in total scored - four to ourselves and three to Ballinacor. Both teams were missing a few regulars, and but for some fine saves from stand in keeper Kieran it would have been much closer, but we got a good team performance and the two points so left happy enough. Next up is Valleymount at home on Saturday. On Sunday, we have the official opening of our newly developed pitch. Kicking off at 4pm have the official opening with a number of GAA officials (County and National) heading to the Gap. At 5pm then we have Wicklow playing Limerick, with light refreshments and lots more besides. Hope to see you all there. Well done to Laura; Deirdre; John and Darragh who represented club and county at the Senior Scor Question Time in Sligo last weekend. Although some of the questions didn't suit this time round, the team performed admirably and their day will come. There was no lotto jackpot winner last week from 4,6,9,15. Match three winners were Marion Carthy; Liz and P.J; Ann Doyle; and Brendan Stapleton. Finally, there are numerous race cards on the go at the minute for our fundraising event in Paddy's on May 6th so make sure you get your nag for the night. At only €10 a pop; and a great night guaranteed; its a steal.
