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.

U21 Roinn B Hurling Championship Final – 16/12/2018

Report by Philomena Brennan

2018 – What a year for Graigue-Ballycallan GAA. After winning accolades in Intermediate, Junior B and U13, the baton was passed to the U21’s on Sunday last 16thy December. After several disappointments at this grade over the last few years hopes were high as the supporters gathered in a cool but dry Pairc Lachtain in Freshford.

Despite desperate rain over the preceding days, great credit is due to the officials in Freshford for having the pitch in remarkable condition for this eagerly awaited clash against Bennettsbridge.

U21 Roinn B HC Semi Final 8/12/2018- GBC v Conahy Shamrocks

Report by Philomena Brennan

The U-21 Hurling Championship Semi-Final took place in MW Hire Park, Dunmore on Saturday last. The match against Conahy Shamrocks was played under lights and while credit has to go to the ground staff for having the playing surface in excellent condition, the weather conditions could only be described as horrendous. Sweeping rain and high winds made hurling next to impossible and both sides have to be commended for the performances they put in.

Intermediate County Champions 2018

What a day Sunday 28th October 2018 was, the Michael Lyng Motors Intermediate Hurling Championship Final will be remembered for many years to come. The day our wonderful Intermediate hurlers stepped up to the mark and won against our neighbours Tullaroan on a scoreline of 2-16 to 2-13. We looked like we were dead and buried in the 28th minute when we were 9 points down but the lads put in a fantastic 2nd half performance to win by 3 points. Well done to the players and management team for giving us a year to remember!
