Ballingarry had four winners in the Player of the Year results announced earlier this week. Leah Twomey (U14 Girls Div.1), Orla O’Doherty (U16 Girls Div. 1), Mike Molloy (U14 Div 1) and Dylan Picard (U12 Div. 2) all picked up their respective awards and will be presented with same later in the month. No other club in the league had more winners, surely a positive reflection on the quality of work being done at underage level within the club. Congratulations to all our winners and of course to the managers and coached who played a major role in their success.

It was more heart ache at the hands of Abbeyfeale as the team that knocked them out of the cup also beat them in the league final. Ballingarry played some neat football but were undone by two first half goals. Nicole McNamara reduced the deficit with a glorious strike before the break but this was as good as it got for Ballingarry as the winners proved the better team in the second half and but for stout defensive play from Ballingarry would have won by a greater margin.
