BALLYBRICKEN BOHERMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
Junior A: Our adult hurlers played Cappamore in the east league recording our third win by 2-14 to 1-10. In a tight first half we went into the break level at 0-7 points a piece after conceding a number of frees in the first period and hitting a few wides we had plenty to improve on. The second period went better and two quick fire Daniel Owens goals proved the difference as we played with increased aggression and better judgement we now have two remaining league games against Doon and Caherconlish. Team from Shane O Neill, Mark O Dea, Enda O Callaghan, Hugh Leonard, Jack Owens, Aidan Power, Patrick Byrnes, David Ryan, Michael Martin, Colm Teefy, John Casey, Daniel Maguire, Conor McCarthy, Joseph Teefy, Daniel Owens and Cathal O Neill.
Junior B: The second round of the junior B hurling league took place in Caherelly last Tuesday night with Bally narrowly losing out by 2-5 to South Liberties 0-14. Playing into the breeze the game was a tight contest throughout an excellent team move and finish to the net from Dylan Conway left us trailing by three going into the break 1-2 to 0-8.

Club Notices: Well done to Ballybricken/Bohermores Callum Hedderman who represented limerick minor footballers last week playing half forward in a draw against Tipperary which unfortunately was not enough to qualify for the next round. With a number of injuries and college exams taking place our panels are tight for numbers in the next few outings so all available players are required to take the field. Both our junior hurlers and minors are out over the bank holiday weekend please see club text and club social media for exact fixtures.
