BALLYLANDERS GAA CLUB NOTES
On Sunday afternoon our U21’s headed to UL again to take on Kildimo Pallaskenry in the county semifinal, conditions were difficult with strong winds blowing from left to right. Unfortunately we got off to a bad start conceding two quick fire goals but settled after that & had the margin down to the minimum with twenty minutes gone but Kildimo finished the half strong to leave it 0-6 to 2-6 at the break. Playing into the strong wind for the second half we had to work really hard to get the ball into scoring positions and everytime we closed the gap Kildimo did just enough to keep us out of reach & the goal we needed never came & Kildimo closed out the win 0-10 to 2-8. Well done to all the players & management for the huge efforts over the last few weeks.
The lotto draw took place this weekend, numbers drawn were 1,5,13 & 22. Lucky dip winners were Catriona Hanley, Danny O’Reilly, Paty & Brenda Meade, Noah Barrett & Tina Hennessy. Next draw takes place on December 26th for a €3,000 jackpot.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped out with the running of our club over the past year,those who were out in all weather’s training & coaching our teams,the players at all levels who represent the club on the field, our grounds man Tom Sheehan who always had the field in top condition,everyone who runs & supports our club fundraising, without your help we simply could not run the club. Happy Christmas to all our members & supporters and wishing you all a happy, healthy & successful New year.
