Minor County League Champions

Pride of place this week goes to the Minor Footballers who won their County League Final against St Mary’s last Sunday. The lads put in a fine performance to record a well-deserved 10 point victory.

Congratulations to all involved, hopefully it’s the 1st of many trophies to come our way this year.

Grand National Fundraiser

Many thanks to all who participated in this year’s Grand National Fundraiser. Congrats to all who were lucky enough to finish in the Top 4. In total there were 76 lucky winners and we’d like to express our sincerest thanks to our very generous sponsors, Flynn Hotels, The Gold Coast, Bridgie Terris and The Railway Cottage / Ormonde Café.

Academy Update

Our Saturday morning academy for boys aged from 5 to 10 continues with our enthusiastic coaches putting on fun and energetic coaching sessions. New members are always welcome so call out to us any Saturday morning from 10am to join in the fun.

U10

On what was a very busy Saturday morning, half of our U10 football panel headed across the bay to An Rinn where they played the hosts and Clashmore in the Déise Óg county football league. Despite a thorough soaking from a seriously heavy shower, the Ballinacourty spirit wasn't dampened and our boys played some very good football and had great craic.

The following day, it was turn of the Sunday morning shift to take to the field in the Burgery. They had a good contests with Dungarvan and St Pat's and played very well. Like the other half of the group the day before, the boys really enjoyed the run out.

The U10 leagues are played under the rules of the "GAA Go Games". There are no league tables and the focus is on allowing our young players to develop and have fun playing against teams from across the county. The boys are looking forward to plenty more games as the weather improves. Thanks to the parents for attending the games and supporting in a positive way. The games mean a lot more to the boys when there's a good crowd on the sidelines encouraging everyone!

U11

Ballinacourty U11’s had Clonmel Commercials down for 2 challenge games with our 2 x U11 Teams. A great evening of football was had by all.

U12

Our U12 footballers took to the road and headed down to Gaultier last Friday night to kick start their 2024 season. After a competitive, tough game of football from both teams, the game finished level at the final whistle. Well done boys.

U13

It was another busy week for the u13 boys who played Rathgormack at the field on Wednesday evening (10th April). It was a very close game with our lads losing out by four points in the end. On Friday they played a selection from Ring school in what was another good contest. Next up is an away match against Lismore on Wednesday (17th April). Good lock lads!

U15

All of last week's U15 championship matches were called off because of the rain but both our U15 football panels are in action on Monday (15th April). The division 1 boys travelling to play the Nire and the division 4 panel hosting Ballyduff Upper. Keep an eye on our socials fur updates.
