It was heartbreak for the Limerick Desmond Schoolboys in the All Ireland final in Dublin last Saturday when the better team won 3-1. The Dublin side went 1 up after just ten minutes, a lead they doubled just after the break. A third was added fifteen minutes from time before the Desmonds got one back ten from time through Liam McCarthan. They thought they had added a second shortly after only to see the effort ruled off side. All four Ballingarry players finished the game with Mikey Morrissey, Mikey Hickey, Nathan Clancy and Cathal O’Keeffe putting in fine performances. Congrats to Brid Hannon on winning the LDSB/GL Under 16 girls player of the year award.
On Sunday the juniors had a massive win at Glin to keep alive their survival hopes to the last day of the season. Goals from Eoin Kennedy (2) – 1 a penalty, Rory Alymer and Shane Doherty secured the points.
On Monday evening the 10s finished their programme with a 7-3 home win against Broadford United. Amongst the goals were Claire Goherey with a hat-trick and Mark O’Kelly with 2.
The next big occasion in the club calender is the Underage Presentation Night at the Rathkeale House Hotel on Friday June 18th 2010.
