Our Senior footballers made it three wins from three in the league when they narrowly defeated neighbours Galtee Gaels at home on Tuesday June 22nd. Two first half Jimmy Barry Murphy goals had us ahead for most of the game but a late Gaels goal had the game level before super sub Keairn O’Callaghan kicked the winning score with only seconds remaining. Full time score was Ballylanders 2-10 Galtee Gaels 1-12. Round five sees us travel to play Bruff on Tuesday June 29th at 7:30pm with the final game a week later at home to Pallasgreen.
The draw for this year’s championship takes place on Tuesday night, stay tuned to our social media platforms for all the latest news.
