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!

M Lyng Motors IHC Semi Final – 13/10/2018 GBC v Tullogher Rosbercon

Report by Philomena Brennan
In a rain soaked Nowlan Park on Sunday last 13th October, GBC were attempting to secure a second successive County Final appearance. Conditions were miserable as the rain poured down from early Saturday as forecasted. A slight respite occurred just before the start of the game but it was to prove short-lived as conditions made open fast hurling next to impossible for both teams.

M Lyng Motors IHC Quarter Final – GBC v Glenmore 6/10/2018

Report by Philomena Brennan

In a windy Ballyhale last Saturday, GBC faced south counterparts Glenmore in the Intermediate HC Quarter Final. Both sides had met in last year’s HC Semi-Final and were no strangers to each other. With a strong prevailing wind a feature of the day, Glenmore won the toss and opted to play with it. Exchanges were physical in the opening fifteen minutes and as a result scores were hard won by each side. GBC were guilty of squandering scoring chances but eventually settled down and after scoring the only goal of the half went into the break one point up.

The Final of the JJ Kavanagh Junior “B” Hurling Championship Final took place in Nowlan Park on last Sunday 9th September. It was a repeat of the Junior League Final pairings and as GBC and O’Loughlin Gaels took to the field, a close contest was anticipated by the large attendance.  These expectations were vindicated in the opening quarter as both teams struggled to find scores. Slowly GBC got the better of the exchanges and build up a seven point lead coming close to the half time break. Read more
