Club Senior Team

On Saturday night our men’s senior team welcomed St. Mary’s for Rd. 5 of the Div. 1 Co. Lge. With both clubs having victories in Rd. 4 this was an opportunity to build momentum.

With Ballymac looking to press early to test the St. Mary’s defence the concession of a number of frees a early lead was established. Both teams then traded opportunities to probe before Ballymac tagged on a few more points, going in at half time 14 points to 3 in front.

The start of the second half St. Mary’s looked to press to close the gap resulting 2 early points. For the remainder of the half both teams traded points and goals.

At the final whistle the final score in this good spirited game was Ballymacelligott 2:20 – St. Mary’s 1:08.

Well done lads.

Feile 2022

Competing in the Division 1 qualifying rounds in Rathmore on Saturday last our boys qualified for the semi-final stages in Kerry GAA Centre of Excellence on this Bank Holiday Monday at 2.45pm.

Playing the hosts Rathmore in the first game, each game 15 mins per half, we won, meaning if we won our second game we were through.

This turned out to be a very tight affair with our lads showing great heart and no little skill to take the victory after an excellent final 10 minutes.

Well done again everyone.
