The Annual U12 Fennelly Tournament took place on Saturday June 1st in sunny Tom Ryall Park in Kilmanagh. Six teams took part. In Group 1- Graigue Ballycallan, O’Loughlin Gaels and Lisdowney. In Group 2- Tullaroan, St. Martins and Ballyhale Shamrocks. Matches were 15 a-side, 30 minute matches.
The sixth round of the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Hurling League took place in Kilmanagh on Friday last 7th June. Mooncoin were GBC’s opponents. With state examinations in full flow, both sides were missing several players from their panels. Despite this both sides served up an entertaining display.
We would like to wish all the Junior and Leaving Cert students from Graigue Ballycallan GAA Club and St. Brigid’s Camogie Club the very best of luck in their exams which start tomorrow, 5th June. We hope to see you all back on the playing field when exams are over!
Our U14 girls were in Muckalee for our League match last night 29th May. A great win, securing their 3rd win out of 3 matches. Brilliant performance by all girls.
Full Time Score: St. Brigid’s 6-7 Muckalee 1-3.
Well done girls.

The 3rd Round of the St. Canice’s Credit Union HL took place in Dunnamaggin on Wednesday 22nd May. A large crowd eagerly anticipated a competitive game but were left disappointed with the fare on offer. The locals came up short on the night and had to give way to a physically stronger and very driven Rower-Inistioge on the night. GBC were under pressure from the throw in and it took them the first quarter to get somewhat settled on the ball. However, after a GBC goal attempt was saved off the line, to be followed quickly by a goal at the other end of the field it was evident that this was not to be GBC’s night.
Jersey Presentation for our U6 and U8 girls. Big thank you to Cleere Life & Pensions for sponsoring the jerseys for the girls.
