While the 14s progressed to the third round of the cup the 11s went out. The 14s were in Athea where the locals had no answer to Ballingarry drive. Goals from Alan Murphy (2) Sean Curtis, Mark O’ Kelly and another brace from Aaron Smith saw Ballingarry easy winners. The 11s were unlucky to go out at Kilcornan in the harshest way, 3-2 on penalties. Brian Mulqueen got both Ballingarry goals as the game finished 2-2 after extra time.
On Sunday the B team went a goal up before finding themselves 2-1 down to finally force a draw at Ferry Rangers. David O’Hanlon gave them a 1 nil lead but it was Kristian Doyle that rescued a point with a second half strike that proved decisive.
The recent wet weather has seen all football involving the club wiped out over the past month however one game featuring some of the clubs players was played last weekend, Sunday January 8th 2012 when the LDSL Under 15 side were in action against their Kerry counterparts. The Desmond lads came out on top with Nathan Clancy and Mikey Morrissey playing the full game while Cathal O’Keeffe started and was substituted early in the second half. Clancy was on target as they won 3-2 in Listowel to go top of the table in the Munster championship.
