Junior A HL 4th Round – GBC v Carrickshock 3/05/2019

The Junior A team continued their winning campaign last Friday 3rd May when they travelled South to take on Carrickshock in Hugginstown.  With the return of a couple of players from injury and illness numbers were good and GBC went into the match with confidence. This confidence looked somewhat premature as it was Carrickshock who had the much better start. They quickly built up a 1-3 to 0-2 lead before GBC settled down. With each side matching one another score for score it was not a surprise that the teams went in at half time all square on a score of 1-9 each.

Junior A Hurling League 3rd Round – GBC v Young Ireland’s 27/04/2019

The Junior A team’s second outing (Rd 1 v Erins Own yet to be played) saw GBC take on Young Ireland’s in Tom Ryall Park on Saturday 27th April. GBC were missing at least eight players due to illness and injury but even so put up a spirited display from the throw in. Guilty of some wayward shooting the GBC side should have been more in control of the game from the start and were disappointed to be a point behind at the interval.

Senior Hurling League 2nd Round: GBC v St. Patrick’s 20/04/2019

Goals win games and this was to prove to be the difference in a sunny Palmerstown on Saturday 20th April 2019, when the two 2017 Intermediate Finalists met.

The opening exchanges were tough and would remain so for the first half. The teams were level on 0-3 a-piece in the 12th minute but proceedings were halted for the next quarter of an hour as a serious injury to GBC’s full-back Bob Murphy resulted in him being removed to hospital.  After the resumption, GBC’s Sean Ryan scored a wonderful goal which gave the locals the lead, which they subsequently would not relinquish. Goal-keeper Ciaran Hoyne made two impressive saves before the end of the first half which kept the half time score to GBC 1-7 St.Patrick’s 0-8.

Well done Killian, Aaron, Stephen and Tom

Well done to our clubmen Killian Egan, Aaron Brennan and Stephen Keoghan who were crowned All Ireland Colleges champions with St. Kieran’s College on Saturday 30th March 2018 and to St. Kieran’s Manager Tom Hogan who has had such an important involvement with our club over the years. St. Kieran’s were up against Presentation Athenry and came out winners on a scoreline of 1-15 to 1-12 with both Aaron and Killian getting on the scoreboard, Aaron with 1 point and Killian with 2 long range points in the dying moments, both with a very significant contribution all over the pitch! Another very proud day for our little parish!
