Opening Day Blues For Ballingarry A

Results August 24th 2008
Premier Division – Abbeyfeale United 2 Ballingarry 1
Division 3 – Ballingarry B 3 St. Itas B 2

Ballingarrys return to the Premier began like they were hoping it wouldn’t with an away loss to Abbeyfeale United. Having a goal dissallowed early in the first half Ballingarry were to suffer more when falling a goal behind before the break. An early second half rally saw them draw level through Eoin Barrett however there was to be no happy ending as the home side got the second to secure all three points.

After a lapse of almost fifteen years the Ballingarry B team got off to a flyer with a home win against St. Itas B in this division three opener. Padraig Forde with a brace and Kristan Doyle were the scorers in a 3-2 win.
