Best of Luck in Exams

We would like to wish all the Junior and Leaving Cert students from Graigue Ballycallan GAA Club and St. Brigid’s Camogie Club the very best of luck in their exams which start tomorrow, 5th June. We hope to see you all back on the playing field when exams are over! 

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!

 

 

Presentation of Medals/Dinner Dance – 9/2/2019

Our club celebrated all the success of 2018 with a Banquet and Medal presentation in the Newpark Hotel on Saturday 9th February 2019 and what a night of celebration it was. Medals were presented to our victorious Intermediate team on their wins in the League Shield Final, the Intermediate County Final and the Leinster Final. Our Juniors were presented with their medals for doing the League/Championship double in 2018 and our U21’s were presented with medals for their win in the U21B Championship.

 

Our sponsor, Ballykeeffe Distillery, opened proceedings with a drinks reception and the club presented Morgan and Anne Ging with a signed jersey to commemorate the wonderful year we had in 2018.

 

 

We held a raffle on the night with some great prizes and the proceeds were divided between two very deserving causes, St. Aidan’s NS’s new Sensory and Relaxation Room and The Smaritans.

We will have more photos and a full report from the night over the next few weeks!

What an honour is was to receive the Club of the Year award in KCLR yesterday. 2018 was a fantastic year for our club and to receive the Club of the Year award really topped it off. Thanks to everyone who voted for us and thanks to David Buggy Motors for sponsoring this award.
