Premier Division Friday Aug 24th – Carrig Celtic 4 Ballingarry 1 (Kelly)
Sunday Aug 26th – Killeaney 0 Ballingarry 1 (Kelly)
Ballingarry got their new season off to the worst possible start on Friday evening when the suffered a resounding 4-1 drubbing at Carrig. They were two down at the break and this got steadily worse as the second half progressed with Celtic adding two more before Denis Kelly got a consolation for the visitors. It proved an occasion of mixed emotions for Michael Corrigan as he made his 200th competitive appearance for the club. Team: Kenrick; Doherty; R O’Kelly; Fitzgerald; O’Grady; Moore (Alymer); Corrigan; Clancy (Healy); Forde; F. Kiely; Kelly.
That man Kelly was on the mark again on Sunday but on this occasion it proved a far better outcome as it proved the only goal of the game. Ballingarry had many chances to add to their first half strike but in the finish the one goal proved enough. Team: Kenrick; O’ Grady; Fitzgerald; Condron; Healy; Doherty; Corrigan; Moore; Clancy; Kelly; Forde.
