Timber auction – Sunday 26th September 2021

We held a very successful Timber Auction on Sunday 26th September to raise vital funds for the running of our club. We had 45 loads of timber, 10 bales of hay, 6 bales of straw and a load of lime. This was made possible by our hard-working committee, our ever ready year-on-year donors along with our many customers and not least our helpers who delivered the loads to the customers homes. Huge thanks to all the above people and we hope to see you all in 2022.

U8 Camogie News

The U8 camogie season came to a smashing end last week! It was never in doubt that these girls would hit the target and find lots of treats! From the very first training session to now, their striking, blocking, scoring, defending and team work has improved tenfold and best of all they do it with a smile on their faces and lots of giggles 😀 So to finish up, they deservedly had lots of treats and fun games thanks to Anna, Alan, Moira and Adrienne and pretty snazzy new water bottles and grips thanks to Gearoid. Keep up all the practice, a super bunch of girls.

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.
