St Brigids will be represented in the u16 Long Puck Co Final on Thursday 27th June in Gowran Park by Abby o Keeffe. Best wishes to Abby from all in St Brigids Camoige. Abby (centre)is pictured here with Roisin Casey and Cara Keating who were runners up on the night!
GBC opened their U13 Roinn B League campaign against Kilmacow at sunny Tom Ryall Park recently. These boys have been training together with U11s since late February in preparation for school’s and club matches. They’ve played 4 challenge matches over the last month with mixed performances so the management team were unsure how the opening match would go against a physically bigger Kilmacow team.
St. Brigid’s Camoige Club would like to wish Lauren Ronan the very best of luck in the All-Ireland National Féile Skills on Saturday 22nd June in GAA National Centre of Excellence Abbottstown, Dublin. Lauren represents both St. Brigid’s and Kilkenny on the day.
Pictured shows Ann Marie Hoyne U14’s coach presenting Lauren with a sports voucher on behalf of Club. Best of luck Lauren!!
As many of you are aware the Graigue-Ballycallan GAA Club has embarked on an ambitious plan of development of the facilities in Tom Ryall Park. Last year, the roof of the complex was totally replaced and a new mower purchased. Several grant applications have been submitted to various Funding Bodies and we expect to hear how and if these applications have been successful by the end of the summer. A Full Planning Permission application for the proposed new building and walkway was also submitted to Kilkenny Co Co. A request for further information and clarification of some aspects of our application has been requested by the Council and we are dealing with this request as we speak. Read more
Our U11 team visited Ballyragget on the 16th of June to compete in the Roinn B competition.
The group consisted of Graigue Ballycallan, Kinvara from Galway, Portlaoise, Ballyragget and our neighbours Danesfort.
First up was Portlaoise and the boys came though with flying colours, raising green flags and winning comfortably.
We had 24 very enthusiastic boys at our first training sessions on April 6th are are catering for over 30 boys in this age group.
We’ve played Danesfort and St. Lachtain’s in 2 challenge matches so far and all the parents and indeed grandparents are delighted with the stars for the future!!

The Annual U12 Fennelly Tournament took place on Saturday June 1st in sunny Tom Ryall Park in Kilmanagh. Six teams took part. In Group 1- Graigue Ballycallan, O’Loughlin Gaels and Lisdowney. In Group 2- Tullaroan, St. Martins and Ballyhale Shamrocks. Matches were 15 a-side, 30 minute matches.
GBC topped their group with maximum points to qualify for the Cup Final, O’Loughlin’s came 2nd to make the Shield Final. In Group 2 Ballyhale came out on top also with maximum points, St. Martins qualified for the Shield Final.
The sixth round of the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Hurling League took place in Kilmanagh on Friday last 7th June. Mooncoin were GBC’s opponents. With state examinations in full flow, both sides were missing several players from their panels. Despite this both sides served up an entertaining display.
We would like to wish all the Junior and Leaving Cert students from Graigue Ballycallan GAA Club and St. Brigid’s Camogie Club the very best of luck in their exams which start tomorrow, 5th June. We hope to see you all back on the playing field when exams are over!
