BALLYSTEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
All roads will lead to Mick Neville Park this weekend (3pm throw in), when we face Newcastle West in the Limerick Senior Football County Quarter Final. We set out of stall early in the Championship with two convincing wins over Ballylanders and Monaleen before going into the Championship break. Defeat to County Champions Adare and then a one point loss to Fr. Casey’s meant our final league game against St. Senan’s was do or die and our lads responded maginificently to the challenge posed to them to run out 13 point winners. That sets up this Saturday’s encounter nicely, as we face a Newcastle West side that finished second in their with four wins and one loss to group winners Oola. Over the last number of years there has been little to choose between the sides whenever they’ve met. Hopefully our lads can set up a meeting against Adare in the County Semi Final. Best of luck to the players and management invovled. All support is welcome.
