Lotto Relaunch

The ‘LOTTO’ run jointly by Ballycallan Parish and the GBC GAA Club over the past 25 years has been an enormous success. However, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic the Lotto, in it’s original format had to be suspended to ensure the safety of all those involved.

Graigue Ballycallan GAA Club and St Brigid’s Camogie Club are in the process of a massive development at the club grounds in Kilmanagh and Ballycallan Parish have kindly agreed that the proceeds of the new Lotto will be given to GBC GAA Club until June 2023 to fund this development.

The new Lotto format will be an online version with many ways to pay and play.

U13 HL Round 2 – GBC v Mooncoin – 25/06/2021

GBC continued where they left off in the last match with a brace of fine goals. The match was played in Tom Ryall Park on a perfect evening for hurling. The pitch was as always in perfect condition and a nice crowd cheering on the lads.

The first 10 minutes was a tense affair with both teams showing great hurling, tackling and hooking and it looked like it would be tough battle for the hour, but GBC started to settle down and played some really intelligent hurling. The movement from the two forward lines started to show promise and with it came a hat-trick of goals from Ben McEvoy. He was ably assisted by the hard working Michael Tynan at centre forward who is adding point scoring to his considerable goal threat and this bodes well for later in the year.

U13 Hurling League 1st Round – GBC v Piltown – 18/6/2021

What a cracking first round tie. Goals, fantastic saves and more goals were the order of the day. Graigue raced into a 9 point lead through a hat trick of goals from Ben McEvoy at full forward. Shane Hogan saved 2 certain  goals with saves that Eoin Murphy would be proud of. Piltown fought back well after the water break and scored three goals of their own. Some great defending in the last few minutes of the half from the full back line trio of Cian Ronan, Oran Hoyne and Sean O’Halloran and a goal from Michael Tynan for GBC left the score at  4-2  to 3-6 at half time.  Read more

Bloody Sunday remembered

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 Camogie

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
