Ballingarry hit for six in MJ Cup

Sunday 5th January 2014

Munster Junior Cup Round 3 – Ballingarry 1 (F. Kiely 1) Abbeyfeale United 6 (Played at Clounreask)

Ballingarry bowed out of the Munster junior cup at Clounreask on Sunday last (5th January) and as the scoreline suggests there can be few complaints. Ballingarry opted to take the game to headquarters when The Paddocks was deemed unplayable.

Abbey took the lead after just 12 minutes and even at this early stage one felt it would be a Blue day for Ballingarry. 2-0 at the break left Ballingarry with a hill to climb and when the winners made it 3 from a woeful Ballingarry mistake it was curtains.

Francis Kiely made it 3-1 from the spot but three United goals in the last five minutes confirmed a miserable start to 2014 for Ballingarry.

Team: Kenrick; Healy; Quinlivan (Danvers); Fitzgerald; C. Kiely; O’Grady; Clancy; F. Kiely; Forde; Kelly; Moore (Doherty).
