West Junior B Hurling League, Group 1, Round 5
Granagh Ballingarry…………………1-12
St. Kieran’s…………………………..0-15
In dry, cold conditions at Ballingarry on Thursday evening, a well taken point by veteran players Mike Carroll, one minute from time, paved the way for a thrilling 1-12 to 0-15 draw for Granagh Ballingarry with St. Kieran’s in the final group 1 game in the West Junior B Hurling League to finish top of the group on nine points, two ahead of St. Kieran’s to qualify for their second West Junior B Hurling League final in a row against neighbours Bruree.
A good crowd turned out to watch this final Group 1 West Junior B Hurling League tie between two fine sporting teams, played on an excellent pitch with Billy Phillips of Tournafulla in charge. Both sides lined out minus key players due to injury, holidays, exams and work commitments, but the players on duty served up sixty minutes of exciting fair with the issue in doubt right up to the final whistle. Holders Granagh Ballingarry, with the wind at their backs, made all the early running with a pair of white flags from placed balls by Owen Lynch cancelled out by Jack O’Sullivan from a placed ball and open play for 0-2 each on six minutes. The Granagh Ballingarry boys, with the wind at their backs, dominated the next nine minutes with a trio of white flags from open play through Jim O’Keeffe (9 mins), Eoin Lynch (13 mins) and Mike Carroll two minutes later to leave three between the sides, Granagh Ballingarry 0-5, St. Kieran’s 0-2 at the end of the first quarter. St. Kieran’s now began to top up their game to dominate ten minutes later with six white flags from open play through Kevin Meade on 17 minutes, Donie Nolan on 19 minutes, Kevin Meade on 22 minutes, Derry O’Connor on 23 minutes, Cormac Mann on 24 minutes, Anthony Molyneaux a minute later, without reply from the Granagh Ballingarry boys to leave the St. Kieran’s three ahead 0-8 to 0-5 on 25 minutes. Then white flags were traded by Owen Lynch from open play on 26 minutes and Jack O’Sullivan from a placed ball on 27 minutes, Owen Lynch from a placed ball on 30 minutes to leave the St. Kieran’s boys in the lead at the interval by three, 0-10 to 0-7.
Owen Lynch and Jack O’Sullivan traded white flags from placed balls in the opening five minutes after the interval before St. Kieran’s no 11 Donie Nolan raised a white flag from open play to put the visitors four ahead, 0-12 to 0-8 on 37 minutes. The standard of hurling in the next seven minutes was poor with the sides guilty of inaccurate striking before Granagh Ballingarry’s no 11 Eoin Lynch showed his class when he cut through the St. Kieran’s defence to finish past keeper Mike Steele to reduce the deficit to the minimum, St. Kieran’s 0-12, Granagh Ballingary ?????? at the end of the third quarter. The hurling in the next ten minutes was close and exciting with white flags traded Owen Lynch (free) on 47 minutes, Jack O’Sullivan (free) on 49 minutes, Owen Lynch (free) on 50 minutes, Jack O’Sullivan (free) on 52 minutes, Jim O’Keeffe (play) on 54 minutes and Jack O’Sullivan (play) two minutes later to leave the St. Kieran’s boys still one ahead 0-15 to 1-11 on 56 minutes. A couple of wides were exchanged before Granagh Ballingarry veteran player, Mike Carroll split the uprights from open play on 59 minutes, to leave the sides level for the third time in this thrilling, hard fought Junior B Hurling Leaugue tie. The final few minutes were exciting, as both sides created chances to win the game, Owen Lynch from a 65 and Kevin Meade from open play, which they failed to convert. At the final whistle the sides finished level, Granagh Ballingarry 1-12, St. Kieran’s 0-15. This result sees holders Granagh Ballingarry finish top of the Group 1 West Junior B Hurling League table on nine points, two ahead of St. Kieran’s, to qualify for their second West Junior B Hurling League Final in a row against neighbours Bruree.
St. Kierran’s were very sporting in defeat and wished Granagh Ballingarry the best of luck in the final against Bruree.

O’Carroll’s Last Point Seals Fourth West A Title for Granagh
West Junior B Football League/Championship Final
A well taken point, following a good solo run by former County senior footballer, Seamus O’Carroll, two minutes from time, paved the way for a one point 2-7 to 0-12 victory for Cappagh over gallant neighbours Granagh Ballingarry, to take their fourth West Junior A Football Championship title, a first since 2015, in difficult, wet and windy conditions at Sean Finn’s Park, Rathkeale on Saturday evening.
A small crowd turned out to watch this West Junior A Football League/Championship Final played on an excellent pitch with John McGrath in charge. Both sides lined out minus key players due to injury, holidays, exams and work commitments. The Granagh Ballingarry boys, despite playing into the wind, made all the early running with a pair of white flags, courtesy of Aaron Smith from a placed ball and Darragh Casey from open play in the opening five minutes. Then the game turned nicely in the Cappagh boys’ favour when Seamus O’Carroll cut through the Granagh Ballingarry defence, only to see his kick for goal bring off a top class save by Granagh Ballingarry keeper David Clancy, and for Carroll to finish the rebound to the net on 7 minutes. Carroll got inside the Granagh Ballingarry defence again, two minutes later, only to see his kick for goal again saved by Clancy in the Granagh Ballingarry goal with Cian O’Carroll this time finishing the rebound to the net, to leave Cappagh four ahead 2-0 to 0-2 on eight minutes. The Granagh Ballingarry boys, far from being overawed, dominated the next 17 minutes with four white flags through Jack Cagney (play) on 12 minutes, Aaron Smith (free) on 15 minutes, Jack Cagney (play) on 21 minutes and Denis O’Connor (play) four minutes later to leave the sides level, Granagh Ballingarry 0-6, Cappagh 2-0 on 25 minutes. Then Cappagh finally ended 21 minutes without a score when John Fitzgerald landed a fine point from open play on 29 minutes to send the Cappagh boys in at the interval leading by one, 0-6 to 2-1.
The standard of football in the opening six minutes, after the interval, was poor with both sides guilty of wayward shooting before Cathal O’Keeffe of Granagh Ballingarry finally found the range when he split the uprights from open play on 37 minutes to level the score for the second time at Granagh Ballingarry 0-7, Cappagh 2-1. The next eight minutes were close and exciting with points traded by Seamus O’Carroll (free) on 39 minutes and from Smith (free) on 42 minutes, Colin Barry (play) on 43 minutes and Aaron Smith (free) two minutes later to level the score for the fourth time, Granagh Ballingarry 0-9, Cappagh 2-3 at the end of the third quarter. Then a pair of white flags by Granagh Ballingarry’s no 9 Jack Cagney on 46 and 48 minutes were cancelled out by John Fitzgerald on 49 minutes and substitute Denis Lenihan a minute later to level the score for the fifth time, Granagh Ballingarry 0-11, Cappagh 2-5 on 50 minutes. Aaron Smith gave Granagh Ballingarry the lead when he split the uprights from a lineball out near the sideline on 53 minutes before a pair of white flags by Cappagh no 5, Conor Lenihan on 25 minutes and Seamus O’Carroll on 28 minutes gave their side a one point advantage. It took some great defence by Cappagh to prevent Cappagh getting the equalising point in the final few minutes but at John McGrath’s final whistle Cappagh were the winners on the score 2-7 to 0-12 to take their fourth West Junior A Football Championship title, a first since 2015.
The Granagh Ballingarry players were disappointed to have lost their second successive final but were very sporting in defeat, wishing the Cappagh boys the best of luck in the County League semi final, and stayed on the field as West Limerick East Board Secretary, Majella Scanlon presented the cup to winning Cappagh captain Colin Barry to the joy of their supporters.
Cappagh scored 2-6 from play and 0-1 from a free. Granagh Ballingarry scored 0-7 from play and 0-5 from frees.
