Well done to Billy O’Neill (U15), Bill Guiry (U11) and Cormac Neary (U13) who all won their respective categories in the Skills competition held on Sunday 22nd November 2020. They will all now go on to represent the club in the county finals in early December and we wish them the very best of luck in that!
Graigue Ballycallan 3-14 Galmoy/Windgap 0-19
Our Under 19’s got their League/Championship campaign off to a winning start on Sunday afternoon 4th October in Kilmanagh beating a strong Galmoy/Windgap team by 4 points.
The visitors got off to the better start going 6 points to 2 ahead in the first ten minutes. GBC got their first goal then through good work from a busy Jeff Neary letting the ball in to OisÍn Egan and he finished very well. Minutes later GBC got a lucky goal when a long free from Stephen Keoghan went straight into the net. Another goal for GBC from Patrick Foley left the score at half time 3-6 to 9 points. Read more
The Graigue Ballycallan U15 team recently lined out against James Stephens in a much anticipated County Final. Both teams were the teams that showed the best form throughout the year and when they met in the group stages earlier in the year the town team prevailed by the narrowest of margins after probably the best game of the season.
Very little has separated these teams over the last number of years with the locals beating them by 2 points in a Féile Semi Final last year. Read more

Graigue Ballycallan U15’s came out on top again Wednesday evening last in John Locke Park Callan after a hard fought battle with a strong Dicksboro side that last year pipped them at the post to take the Féile title.
Although it was a 5 goal win for the men in blue the two teams were more evenly matched then the scoreboard would suggest at the end. Read more
Graigue Ballycallan and Tullogher Rosbercon U15’s braved the weather on Wednesday evening 19th August in Kilmanagh in a Quarter Final Championship decider.
It was the locals that got off to a quick start with two early goals and from there never looked back. It was a strong team performance from 1 to 15 from the men in blue. The backs defended tenaciously for the hour, the midfield duo worked hard all evening and the forwards picked off the scores from the quality ball they were fed from the men outside. Read more
Graigue Ballycallan U15’s recorded a convincing win over O’Loughlin Gaels on Wednesday night in John’s Park. It was a strong team performance all round with the full forward line of Aaron McEvoy, Ryan Corcoran and Jake O’Brien scoring 3-7 from play between them. Billy O’Neill gave an outstanding performance at centre back scoring two long range frees in the process with Dean O’Brien and Pat Purcell completing a strong half back line. Read more

From there to the half time break it was score for score with the teams level 1-3 to 0-6 at the interval.
Graigue Ballycallan U15’s opened their 2020 League/Championship campaign with a 6 point (2 goal) win against a strong Erin’s Own team in Kilmanagh on Wednesday evening in far from ideal hurling conditions.

A lot of work has been carried out since the GAA announced the re-opening of its’ playing grounds. Suitable signage, sanitising units and guidelines have been adopted to ensure the health and safety of all our members.
One of the key control measures that have been put in place as part of a Safe Return to Gaelic Games is the completion of a Health Questionnaire.
- Adult Players, Parents/Guardians of underage players and Team Personnel will be required to complete the online Health Questionnaire ONCE prior to their return to Gaelic Games.
- Using the same system, Adult Players, Parents/Guardians and Team Personnel will be required to declare, before each training session/game, that their health status has not changed.
The Online System for the Health Questionnaire is now live and this is the only system that should be used.
The link to the questionnaire is https://returntoplay.gaa.ie
