Last Friday night, December 28th, our victorious U13’s were presented with their medals in Ballycallan Hall. In what was a great year for this bunch of hurlers, they won the Roinn A Country Cup in both Hurling and Football and the Cumann na mBunscoil Roinn A Final with St. Aidan’s NS. These boys were also very successful in the club competitions, winning the Roinn B Football Championship and the Roinn A Hurling Championship and the Lisdowney 7’s Shield.
They are the first county club to win the Tom Ryall Cup and it was fitting that members of the Ryall family were in attendance on the night. MC for the night, Club Charimain Dave O’Neill, presented all the players and Billy Ryan and John Byrne (Bord na nÓg Chairman) were on hand to present the medals and acknowledge their achievements.
What a year for this special group of players and the club overall.
We started back in January in Ballycallan Hall with Adrian Landy putting the lads through their paces over a ten week period. We started playing football in February and won the Roinn B Football Championship beating Barrow Rangers, Glenmore and Clara in the final. Read more
