Round 4 of the Roinn B League saw Ggraigue Ballycallan take on Glenmore on Friday 12th in a sunny Tom Ryall Park. A minutes silence was impeccably observed prior to throw-in for the late Tom Brennan who’s nephew Martin plays with this team.
GBC started very well scoring 1-1 in the opening 5 minutes, a goal coming from Ben Young after a lovely handpass from Keelan Lynch. Glenmore responded with the next 3 points before Ben McEvoy won possession and crossed for midfielder Paidí Egan who raised the green flag to leave it GBC 2-1, Glenmore 0-3 after 15 minutes. Glenmore scored 2 points, before Ben Young buried a goal from 20 yards. Half Time GBC 3-2, Glenmore 0-6. Read more
Tom Ryall Park was the place to be last Friday 5th July as the Club hosted a juvenile evening as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Club’s foundation.
The sun shone on the evening’s proceedings and this guaranteed a fantastic turnout.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable day at the O’Loughlin Gaels U7 Blitz on 22nd June.
Well done to all 29 hurlers who played their hearts out over the course of the day. Everybody got to play 3 games which were played in fantastic spirit and with great enthusiasm. Both parents and mentors were delighted with their efforts and the boys were thrilled with their well deserved medals.

Celebrates 50th Anniversary
As part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the founding of the Graigue-Ballycallan Gaa Club, you are all cordially invited to Tom Ryall Park, Kilmanagh on Friday 5th July for a summer barbeque with events for the children, music and reminiscences.
Proceedings will commence at 7pm sharp with the celebration of an open-air Mass to officially open our evening.
There will be a myriad of different activities for the younger of our members which will include hurling, rounders , speed tests, piñatas and for the first time ever a water dunk event (several well know faces are queuing up to act as victims!!!)
The ever popular barbeque will cater for all appetites and of course the old reliable cuppa will be available in the kitchen.
So come to the pitch on Friday 5th July, meet old faces and a lot of new ones as we come together to acknowledge the last 50 years in our club’s history and look forward with great anticipation to the next half century.
See you all there.
GBC U13’s played Mooncoin in Round 2 of the Roinn B League in Tom Ryall Park on Friday last 28th June. Again this young team came up against a bigger physical side but they refused to take a step back. Mooncoin opened with a pointed free but GBC responded with a well taken goal from Aidan Ging to go ahead early. It was end to end for most of the first half with both defence’s on top, in particular Ben McEvoy was excellent between the posts for GBC. After going 15 minutes without scoring, a late ’65 and a long range shot from No.6 Aidan Comerford dropped under the crossbar and gave GBC a lead 2-3 to 0-4 at Half Time. Read more
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
