On Saturday 21st November 2020 we lit a candle in our club grounds to remember the 14 innocent people who went to Croke Park on 21st November 1920 and never came home. They were killed when British Forces opened fire 10 minutes into a challenge match between Tipperary and Dublin. Hundreds of GAA Club across the country took part in remembering this sad occasion 100 years ago.

MINOR CAMOIGE 2020——— we remained in ROINN A and we had expectations for the class of Minor 2020. The challenge to be competitive was made more difficult for all due to COVID 19. However, we had a bunch of girls who had shown great character over the past few years (U16 Roinn A Champions 2018) so we had expectations of ourselves. One of keys to success was staying injury free so losing Kate McCluskey was a cruel blow to this group. This injury on top of others leading up to the Semi Final v Dicksboro obviously became too much on the day and we failed to meet our expectations. That was a pity but this group have a huge amount to look forward to as they develop their camogie careers. Read more
Graigue Ballycallan 3-14 Galmoy/Windgap 0-19
Our Under 19’s got their League/Championship campaign off to a winning start on Sunday afternoon 4th October in Kilmanagh beating a strong Galmoy/Windgap team by 4 points.
The visitors got off to the better start going 6 points to 2 ahead in the first ten minutes. GBC got their first goal then through good work from a busy Jeff Neary letting the ball in to OisÍn Egan and he finished very well. Minutes later GBC got a lucky goal when a long free from Stephen Keoghan went straight into the net. Another goal for GBC from Patrick Foley left the score at half time 3-6 to 9 points. Read more
The Graigue Ballycallan U15 team recently lined out against James Stephens in a much anticipated County Final. Both teams were the teams that showed the best form throughout the year and when they met in the group stages earlier in the year the town team prevailed by the narrowest of margins after probably the best game of the season.
Very little has separated these teams over the last number of years with the locals beating them by 2 points in a Féile Semi Final last year. Read more

GBC knew they would have a tough battle on their hands as they took on Bennettsbridge in the 1st Round of the St. Canice’s Credit Union Senior Hurling Championship in UPMC Nowlan Park on Sunday at 2pm.
A Conor Murphy free and a point from play for Aaron Brennan saw GBC 0-2 to 0-1 after the opening 3 minutes. Bennettsbridge then found their gears scoring 3 points without reply until Conor Murphy pointed a free in the 10th minute to leave the score 0-3 to 0-4. At the water break it was 0-6 to 0-4 to the Bridge. After the water break The Bridge upped the gears again adding 5 more points to GBC’s two frees. The gap at halftime could have been more only for a great on the line save from Ciaran Hoyne left the score at halftime 0-11 to 0-6 to The Bridge.
Graigue Ballycallan U15’s came out on top again Wednesday evening last in John Locke Park Callan after a hard fought battle with a strong Dicksboro side that last year pipped them at the post to take the Féile title.
Although it was a 5 goal win for the men in blue the two teams were more evenly matched then the scoreboard would suggest at the end. Read more
