Well done to our U12’s who had a very hard fought win over John Locke’s on Monday 8th July at home in the League. It was a very close game with neither team winning by much at any stage. The work rate and determination that the girls showed especially in the last 10 minutes was fantastic to see.
All players dug deep to come out with the win on a scoreline of 6-3 to 5-1. Thank you to all who came to support the girls, our next game is on 22nd July. Details to follow!

Celebrates 50th Anniversary
As part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the founding of the Graigue-Ballycallan Gaa Club, you are all cordially invited to Tom Ryall Park, Kilmanagh on Friday 5th July for a summer barbeque with events for the children, music and reminiscences.
Proceedings will commence at 7pm sharp with the celebration of an open-air Mass to officially open our evening.
There will be a myriad of different activities for the younger of our members which will include hurling, rounders , speed tests, piñatas and for the first time ever a water dunk event (several well know faces are queuing up to act as victims!!!)
The ever popular barbeque will cater for all appetites and of course the old reliable cuppa will be available in the kitchen.
So come to the pitch on Friday 5th July, meet old faces and a lot of new ones as we come together to acknowledge the last 50 years in our club’s history and look forward with great anticipation to the next half century.
See you all there.
