Béal an Átha Móir Seán Ó hEislin

Thank you

Thank you to the players, the mentors and all the management team and also to you
the people of Ballinamore who joined us on this exciting journey over the last weeks
and months
It may have been a tough end and a tough result for the lads, they gave it their all on
the pitch, they stood tall and worked hard as a team and were so close, to say they left
it all on the pitch is an understatement, they certainly deserved more but that’s
football.
To say we are proud of them is also an understatement, the energy they have brought
to the community and club has been electric they’ve lifted the town high this last
week and have brought us all on a fantastic journey with them.
The time these lads have given up, the effort they have put in has been phenomenal
and we are all truly grateful to have been part of this.
They are one of the finest group of young men that I know they have done so much
for our young players and supporters and even on the pitch as we tried to comfort
them, they were taking time to comfort our young fans.
It’s not the end to the championship that we had longed for and the wait goes on for
another year, we are certainly closer than at any time in that period and it’s a difficult
day for the team and for the fans.
To say we went close is an understatement, there are fine margins at this level and
today the margins did not go our way and that’s football and on this occasion Glencar
Manor have won and we wish them well as they progress to Connacht as worthy
Leitrim representatives and hopefully next year we will get another opportunity to
take them on.
Hopefully the players and management know how proud we are of them even in
defeat, we know you gave it your all on the pitch and we hope that you will bring us
on another journey next year.
We remember the defeat in the Intermediate final and how you came back the
following year to win, we have faith in you and will be behind you each step of the
way, you are the best of us and the pride of Ballinamore and always will be.
Thanks lads for a great run dust yourselves down and drive on.

Well done

A big well done to James Dillon and Seán Harte from our nursery team who
represented the club on finals day. The lads took part in a half time game and waved
the teams onto the pitch, they were fantastic ambassadors for the club, hopefully both
boys will grace the turf on many occasions in the future. Well done boys

Congratulations

Congratulations and good luck in Connacht to Leitrim Gaels and Glencar
Manor

Well done to our u9’s who did brilliantly on Saturday in all six of their matches at the

organising such a successful and well ran event.
