Comhbhron

Everyone at the club would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Oliver Plunkett who sadly passed away on Saturday. Oliver was a wonderful supporter of the GAA and was the current serving Uachtarán of Aughawillan GAA, a club he has supported and served all his life with great distinction. Oliver was a great football man, friend and family man who will be missed by all that knew him. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Deepest condolences are also extended to the family and friends of the late Fr. Michéal Quinn, Parish Priest, Crosserlough, Co. Cavan and late of Drumlonan, Ballinamore who sadly passed away on Saturday.

We would also like to pass on our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Elizabeth McGinley who passed away recently in Sligo.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and friends of the bereaved at this difficult time.

Ballinamore Hurling

Special thanks to Martin Fogarty Hurling legend who gave our young hurlers a master class on hurling last Saturday. He regaled them about the Seven most important aspects of the game and introduced them to all the skills needed to become an all-Ireland winning hurler. Martin showed them the national league, Leinster and all Ireland medals that Kilkenny won. The Kilkenny jerseys were passed around and Martin explained the pride that lads had in wearing then and how they worked hard to earn that honour. Martin explained that practice, practice and more practice were what was needed to be successful and that you should always appreciate your coaches. We would all like to thank Martin for his wonderful visit and the excellent encouragement and knowledges he passed on to all the players. Hopefully Martins wise words will assist our young hurlers on to victory on August the 4th when they take part in the Tain Og Finals day.

 

U13 Championship

Our U13 were in action against our local rivals St Bridgets in the park last Thursday. The lads got off to a great start opening the scoring with a goal followed by great points by Cathal, Gavin and Naoise, St Bridgets fought back strong scoring a 2.2 before the break, bringing them right back into the game. They continued the pressure on the lads but numerous brilliant saves from our keeper Kaylon Murray ensured we held the lead of 1-6 to 2-2 at the break. Like the first half we started strong as Paul score numerous long range efforts which pushed our lead to 5 points. We traded scores for much of the remaining half but a late surge by St Bridgets ensured a tense end, but our lads battled hard and held out worthy 2 point winners ending on a score line of 3.9 - 4.4.

Team: Kaylon Murray, Cian McGovern, Dessie Wisely, Paul Honeyman, Michael McBrien, Mark Ahern, Cathal McCarthy, Gavin Darcy, Naoise McManus (c), James King, Tommy Smith, Darragh Gavin, Louis Quinn, Neil Sweeney, Harry Prior, Rian McManus, Colum Gartland, Michael Keegan
