Heartiest congratulations to the Aughawillan and Sean O’Heslin’s senior men’s football teams on their recent victories in the county finals. It was a great day for Ballinamore CS also as 58 of the 62 panelists involved were past or present students. Well done to all and best of luck as both teams now fly the Leitrim flag in the Connacht championship.
Our combined first and second year football team were narrowly defeated by a very strong Easkey school on Monday last. The lads put up a brave fight to hang on to a draw with only a minute left on the clock. A last second goal from Easkey sealed their deserved victory. Well done to all the team and manager Ronnie Duignan
On Friday, April 29th, our first and second year footballing students took part in a blitz competition at Sean O’Heslins football grounds. After hard fought games against Mohill and Drumshanbo schools we were victorious in taking home the top prize. Big thanks to Jimmy Holohan, Thomas Keenan and Gerry Gallogly for organising the competition
The preliminary round of the Connacht senior B championship took place on Wednesday last 21st January against ballinrobe cc. It ended in a very impressive win on a scoreline of 4 18 to 2 10. Ballinamore started off very slowly in the first half but in the final ten minutes started to produce some excellent football with Conor Gaffney scoring two well worked goals which left Ballinamore leading by 5 points at halftime. In the second half Ballinamore pulled away with quick passing and clinical shooting and goals from Pearce Dolan and Conor Cullen, it was too much for Ballinrobe to claw back. Ryan O’Rourke was very effective in the forward line scoring 7pts and was well supported by Conor Gaffney and Bhrefnie McKiernan. Ballinamore CS are now into the Connacht Q final against Mountbellew in two weeks time.
