U15B HL Round 3 May 5th 2022 – GBC v Ballyhale Shamrocks

Graigue Ballycallan 6-13                Ballyhale Shamrocks 3-12

GBC and Shamrocks played out a high-scoring game in sun-drenched Kilmanagh in Round 3 of the U15 B Hurling League. As usual, the facilities at Tom Ryall Park were in pristine condition and it was great to see the scoreboard in operation, full credit on all counts to Groundsman Gussy.

Both teams were missing players due to injury, Mullan for Shamrocks and Ben McEvoy for GBC.

U13 Hurling Championship Semi Final – GBC v Dunnamaggin – 14/9/2021

GBC U13’s continued their journey in this year’s Championship with an epic Semi Final that had everything – big leads, big comeback, last minute drawn points, extra time, penalties.

It was probably the best €5 the spectators will have paid this year.

The pitch in Callan was  in perfect condition and with the rain holding off, the conditions were great but a stiff breeze blowing down the pitch would help the team attacking that end.

Minor B Hurling Championship – Preliminary Round – 1/09/2021

The Graigue Ballycallan Minor team faced Thomastown in Thomastown on Wednesday evening, 1st September in the preliminary round of the Roinn B Championship.

On what was a perfect evening for hurling, Thomastown got off to a quick start going 2 points up in the first few minutes after a few uncharacteristic wides from the Graigue Ballycallan forwards were driven before that at the opposite end. Read more

U13 HL Round 2 – GBC v Mooncoin – 25/06/2021

GBC continued where they left off in the last match with a brace of fine goals. The match was played in Tom Ryall Park on a perfect evening for hurling. The pitch was as always in perfect condition and a nice crowd cheering on the lads.

The first 10 minutes was a tense affair with both teams showing great hurling, tackling and hooking and it looked like it would be tough battle for the hour, but GBC started to settle down and played some really intelligent hurling. The movement from the two forward lines started to show promise and with it came a hat-trick of goals from Ben McEvoy. He was ably assisted by the hard working Michael Tynan at centre forward who is adding point scoring to his considerable goal threat and this bodes well for later in the year.

U13 Hurling League 1st Round – GBC v Piltown – 18/6/2021

What a cracking first round tie. Goals, fantastic saves and more goals were the order of the day. Graigue raced into a 9 point lead through a hat trick of goals from Ben McEvoy at full forward. Shane Hogan saved 2 certain  goals with saves that Eoin Murphy would be proud of. Piltown fought back well after the water break and scored three goals of their own. Some great defending in the last few minutes of the half from the full back line trio of Cian Ronan, Oran Hoyne and Sean O’Halloran and a goal from Michael Tynan for GBC left the score at  4-2  to 3-6 at half time.  Read more

U15 A County Final 5/9/2020 – Match Report

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
