A Conor Murphy free and a point from play for Aaron Brennan saw GBC 0-2 to 0-1 after the opening 3 minutes. Bennettsbridge then found their gears scoring 3 points without reply until Conor Murphy pointed a free in the 10th minute to leave the score 0-3 to 0-4. At the water break it was 0-6 to 0-4 to the Bridge. After the water break The Bridge upped the gears again adding 5 more points to GBC’s two frees. The gap at halftime could have been more only for a great on the line save from Ciaran Hoyne left the score at halftime 0-11 to 0-6 to The Bridge.
Our Senior hurlers went to UPMC Nowlan Park to take on Mullinavat in the final round of the St. Canice’s Credit Union League. After a disappointing result against Dicksboro in round 2, GBC were hoping for a better performance.

All roads led to John Locke Park, Callan once again last Sunday for the replay between Graigue-Ballycallan and Mullinavat.

After a fourteen week break over the summer, the St. Canice’s Credit Union SHL resumed on Saturday 31st August. GBC’s opponents were neighbours Danesfort and the tie was fixed for John Locke Park in Callan.

The 3rd Round of the St. Canice’s Credit Union HL took place in Dunnamaggin on Wednesday 22nd May. A large crowd eagerly anticipated a competitive game but were left disappointed with the fare on offer. The locals came up short on the night and had to give way to a physically stronger and very driven Rower-Inistioge on the night. GBC were under pressure from the throw in and it took them the first quarter to get somewhat settled on the ball. However, after a GBC goal attempt was saved off the line, to be followed quickly by a goal at the other end of the field it was evident that this was not to be GBC’s night. Read more
