Strictly Come Dancing

What an excellent night @Priors Ballinamore as the club introduced our dancers to a packed crowd, with even more following the action live on Facebook. There was plenty of cheering and laughter as the ever-excellent Adrian Smyth introduced the couples first to each other and then to the massed audience.

 

If the launch night was anything to go by the main event which is in the Slieve Russell on the 18th of November is one not to be missed.

 

Next up for our dancers will be a gruelling training regime where they will be put through their paces by a crack team of choreographers in preparation for the main event

 

Over the coming weeks we will introduce you to our intrepid couples through our Facebook page where we will share lots of titbits on our dancers and provide further information on each of their individual sponsors.

 

If you’re not one of the 2150 people that have so far viewed the launch video its still available on our page.

 

Special thanks to our main sponsors @Priors and Gordon Hughes estate agents for their support so far and helping to make this possible

Under 17 Semi Final

The U-17 semi final was played against Kinlough in St Osnatts GAA pitch outside Manorhamilton. Played in perfect conditions on Saturday at 4pm.  SOH won the fixture on a score line of 3-9 to 2-7. It was a close game throughout with SOH having the majority of the play in both halves. We were unlucky not to convert two goal chances in the first half but held a slender lead at half time. We took our opportunities in the second with a goal from a penalty and two from play. Some great points scored also over the course of the game both from frees and play.  Although we were fairly comfortable coming towards the end of the game things got a bit scrappy. We held our nerve and now move on to the final against Fenagh. No date fixed yet for this match. Team starting Jack Gallogley, Danny Smyth, Nathan McCartin, Eoin Curran, Eoin Shanley, Francis McGovern, James Creamer,Mathew Morris, Cathal McHugh, Dylan Beirne, Senan Harte, James Honeyman, Joe Sweeney, Tom Prior, Dara Gleason. Subs used Aaron McBrien, Sean Christy.

 

The final has been set for October the 15th where the lads will take on Fenagh at 16:00 in Pairc Sean

 

 

Under 12 girls

Hard Luck to the u12 girls who unfortunately lost in the final against St Bridget’s at the weekend, the girls put in a great performance but were unable to overcome a strong St Bridget’s team. Hopefully the girls can stick together and will be back stronger next year

Senior Championship

Its not often that you would say to players to celebrate after a defeat in the semi final of a championship, but celebrate they should. At the start of the campaign if you would have said we would reach this point, with a young team that had come up from intermediate, that would have been a high bar and one that many of us would have been delighted to reach. The players and coaches have brought the club on a magnificent journey these last few months, it’s been many a year since we would have seen as many fans travelling and cheering the lads on, we as fans have enjoyed every moment of that journey, the lads have played a great brand of exciting football and have been an inspiration to the young people of the town, you only must look at the demand for club gear to see it. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the players, management and supporters, you have done the club and Ballinamore proud- hold your heads High and shoulders straight because as sure as the sun rises tomorrow you will come back stronger.

Congratulations to Glencar Manor and good luck to them in the final

Under 17 Lads

Well done to our u17 lads who were also in action today against Fenagh The match was played in slippery conditions with a very strong breeze. SOH had the advantage of the breeze in the first half and led 1-6 to 0-2 at half time. Unlucky to miss two good goal chances also. Fenagh came back stronger in second half and tied the game in the last couple of minutes.

Next up for the lads is a match against Melvin Gaels in the semi on Saturday at 1600 In Manorhamilton.

Team Jack Gallogley. Danny Smyth. Nathan McCartin. James Creamer. Aaron McBrien. Francis McGovern. Senan Harte. Cathal McHugh. Dara Gleeson. Dylan Beirne. Mathew Morris. James Honeyman. Sean Christy. Tom Prior. Joe Sweeney. Subs used Euan McManus. Eoin Curran.

 Oughteragh Gaels

Well done to all of our Minor Ladies defeated St Brigid’s by 1-11 to 0-11 in a fierce battle in Carrigallen on Friday evening. The game was played in a great spirit throughout, with both teams going hell for leather from the word go, and thankfully we managed to come out on top with Aoife McCartin’s first half goal ultimately separating the teams. Emma McGovern had an outstanding game in the middle of the field, scoring no less than 7 points, whilst Mollie Murphy and Emma Honeyman both did trojan work in defense. Grainne Casey also excelled in goal by making a number of brilliant saves, whilst Megan McGovern and Niamh Donohoe’s impact from the bench can’t be understated either. This win puts the team in a strong position to reach the county final and hopefully they’ll keep their good run of form going.

Team: Grainne Casey, Emma Honeyman, Kiera Masterson, Grainne Prior, Laoise Moran King, Abbi Sweeney, Mollie Murphy, Maeve Hamill, Emma McGovern (0-7), Sinead O’Neill (0-2), Ciara McGoldrick, Genevieve Canning, Aoife McCartin (1-0), Megan O’Rourke, Lily Bryne (0-1).

Special thanks to the children, parents, mentors and Dean for making this a special year, if the excitement and noise was anything to go by we have a great future – We will be back in February so watch this space

Senior Ladies narrowly lose out in Division 2 League final –

Oughteragh Gaels 1-15 – Glencar/Manor 4-8

Hard luck to our ladies team who came up just short in the Division 2 League final on Sunday afternoon in Kiltubrid. The team put in a huge effort throughout against a very talented Glencar/Manorhamilton outfit who were clinical when it came to taking their chances. On the other hand, we managed to hit the woodwork no less than six times and try as we might, it just wasn’t to be our day. A huge well done to the whole panel for their achievements this season – Intermediate County Champions and they still have at least one more game in the Connacht Championship vs Moycullen of Galway.

Team: Ellen Wrynn, Leanne McGrath, Lisa Maguire, Abbi Sweeney, Maeve Hamill, Kirby Gilgunn, Katie Duignan, Ciara O’Dowd, Eilish O’Dowd (0-2), Emma McGovern, Laura O’Dowd (0-8), Roisin McHugh (1-5), Mary McNulty, Siobhan Earley, Ciara McGoldrick.

 

Another Championship win for the U16 Ladies!

Sean O’Heslin’s 10-7 – Annaduff 3-2 Our U16’s made it 3 wins from 3 Championship group games on Thursday evening in Annaduff, putting on yet another a brilliant performance to secure top spot. It was a tough game for long spells and despite the end scoreline, the girls had to work hard until they took it up a level in the second half. A number of players had standout games and hopefully this form will be taken forward into the semi-finals. As it stands, we have no opponent or date for that game but shall update on Facebook when further details are known. Team: Erin Keegan, Tara Conway, Emma Honeyman, Joely McGovern, Abbi Sweeney, Gracie Reilly, Grainne Prior (0-2), Laoise Moran King (1-1), Niamh Donohoe (1-1), Megan McGovern (3-0), Emma Beirne, Lily Byrne (2-1), Eadaoin Murphy (2-1).

Well done to all players who put in a tremendous effort all year.

Senior Championship

It was another impressive victory on Saturday evening this time in Drumkeerin for the senior lads, against Gail na Meilge, the lads were very impressive building up a great lead in the first 20 minutes of the game and went in at half time fully in control with a score of 2:07 to 0:04. Gail na Meilge improved in the second half with 8 scores against our 6, it was not enough and we saw out the game winning by a score of 2:13 to 0:12. The win left Ballinamore finishing the group on maximum points. Well done to all the lads hey put in a great performance all over the pitch.

Next Saturday sees us take to the field for a quarter final tie against Dromahair in Pairc Sean, this promises to be a tough match against a team that showed their quality last week when they defeated Annaduff who were probably favourites to progress. When you reach this stage of any competition it can go either way and despite people trying to lay down the favorites tag on Ballinamore when you reach a knockout stage it’s all down to the day and the bounce of the ball.

It’s at this time that we really need to get behind the lads and hopefully as many of you as possible travel to Carrick to cheer the lads on to a very hoped-for victory!!!

 

Junior A Championship

The Junior A lads were in action on Sunday against Gortletterage in Aughavas in a quarter final tie and like their senior colleagues they put in a great performance as well winning by a score of 0:18 to 1:12 in a very close and hard-fought match.

 

The Mammy !!!

Well done to Breege McGovern  proud Mammy who was seen in action on Jeff and Kammy’s journey to Croker on Monday gone. Breege put in mighty performance for the lads and was an inspiration to all the other mammy’s out there. To see Breege in action you can follow the link on our Facebook page.

Senior Championship

It was another impressive victory on Saturday evening in Cloone for the senior lads, this time they were up against an equally impressive Mohill team where a win for either team would cement their place at the top of group one. The lads were in flying form and certainly started the much brighter of the two and within the first quarter were leading by six points with the score 0:8 to 0:2 with some magnificent scores. Mohill improved over the next 10 minutes and added four of their own points before Ballinamore were to get their next and despite our early dominance we only wet in leading by two points with the halftime score 0:9 to 0:7. Within a minute of the restart Niall scored another great point before Mohill again pulled one back, it was not until the 43rd Minute that the game swung back to Ballinamore with Niall grabbing a very important goal after a Wayne free came back of the upright. Mohill were not to be denied and added a couple of impressive points of their own before Ballinamore scored three massive points each better than the last, first up was Wayne with a free, followed by Niall again after great run by Brian Leydon and again Niall with another impressive score, this left the score at 1:13 to 10 going into the last 5 minutes. Mohill grabbed another two points before Paddy grabbed the final point of the game to leave the final score Ballinamore 1:14 Mohill 0:12

 

Well done to all the lads hey put in a great performance all over the pitch

 

Oughteragh Gaels

Oughteragh Ladies reach the Championship Final! Congratulations to our ladies team who will contest this year’s Intermediate Championship Final against Mohill on September 10th following a brilliant win over St Frances’ in Bornacoola. We eventually emerged as 3-11 to 2-10 victors in what was an enthralling game throughout but had to battle back from a 5 point deficit at half-time and the attitude on show was nothing short of exceptional. September will be a big month for the club with two finals on the way and anyone who is available to come out and support on either date, please do so.

Team: Lisa Maguire, Leanne McGrath, Ciara O’Dowd, Abbi Sweeney, Aoibheann Flynn, Kirby Gilgunn, Katie Duignan, Eilish O’Dowd, Roisin McHugh (0-7), Emma McGovern (1-1), Laura O’Dowd (1-2), Maeve Hamill, Siobhan Earley (1-1), Mary McNulty, Ciara McGoldrick.

Senior Championship

 

Having already secured a place in this year’s quarter finals the lads are again in action in Cloone, this time on Saturday at 19:00 where they face Mohill, hopefully the lads can continue their fine form and cement their place at the top of the group with a victory. Hopefully as many of you as possible can make the trip to Cloone to cheer them on.

 

Rose of Tralee

 

A big well done to our Leitrim Rose Erin Moran, Erin has been a brilliant ambassador for Leitrim and Ballinamore and has been an inspiration to everyone she has met during her time as a rose. Despite not reaching the final Erin should be very proud of everything she has done. She is certainly a winner in our eyes and everyone in Ballinamore and Leitrim are very proud of her and she will always be a winner in our eyes.

 

Junior B

 

The lads were in action on Sunday against a strong Fenagh team, Fenagh were too strong on this occasion and won by a score of 3:10 to 1:14

 

Junior A

 

Well done to the Junior A lads who had another good victory this time over  Gael na Meilge winning by 1:14 to 0:8. The Victory leaves the lads finishing the group in First place and securing a quarterfinal place. Well done lads !!!

 

Under 15

Another great match for Cill Mhor Gaels as they ran out victors by a score of 7:10 to 1:12 against Gortletteragh. The win leaves the lads in 4th place with 6 points after five games played

 

U16 Ladies win Championship opener with the last kick of the game!

Sean O’Heslin’s 6-8 – Keeldra Gaels 6-5 Massive well done to all of our U16’s who got their 11/13-a-side Championship off to a winning start with a three point win over Keeldra Gaels. In what was a fiercely contested game throughout, the only thing that separated the teams was a last second penalty and the players on both sides are a credit to their clubs for putting on such a brilliantly exciting display of football. There were too many standout performers to name and hopefully the trend continues in our next match! That is set to be this Sunday at 11am vs Drumkeerin – venue to be confirmed. Team: Erin Keegan, Emma Honeyman, Siobhan Flynn, Mollie Murphy, Abbi Sweeney, Megan McGovern (1-1), Laoise Moran King (1-1), Grainne Prior (0-1), Niamh Donohoe (0-2), Eadaoin Murphy (1-2), Michaela Harte (1-0).

Ballinamore Festival Ninja Final

Well done to Ballinamore on winning the ninja final !!! They defeated the willies in a titanic battle in the semi-finals before clinching victory in the final against a mixed team. This was a great event and was certainly enjoyed by all the spectators who were there to watch it, hopefully this is not the last final the lads win this year !!!!!

Ballinamore Festival Blitz

A big thank you to all the Clubs, players, parents and mentors for making the Ballinamore festival blitz a great success. We had teams, from Garadice Gaels, Fenagh, Kiltubrid  at u8 and u10 with both mixed, boys and girls teams taking part. Special thanks to the local gardai for sponsoring the medals

 

Minor Ladies make a winning Championship start!

Congratulations to the Sean O’Heslin’s minor girls, who are amalgamated with St Joseph’s, on their 5-12 to 5-4 victory over Carrick-Annaduff yesterday evening. It was a tight game throughout but a couple of goals inside the final ten minutes from Emma McGovern and Megan O’Rourke – who scored an impressive 2-4 apiece – ensured a winning start to this season’s Championship. It was a brilliant performance and especially from our U14 All-Ireland Champions, Emma Honeyman, Megan McGovern, Mollie Murphy and Niamh Donohoe, who made their debuts at minor level. The future is bright! Team: Juliette Lockhart, Michaela Harte, Kiera Masterson, Grainne Prior, Laoise Moran King (0-1), Abi Sweeney, Mollie Murphy, Maeve Hamill (0-3), Emma McGovern (2-4), Megan McGovern, Genevieve Canning, Niamh Donohoe, Grace Wrynn (1-0), Megan O’Rourke (2-4), Aoife McCartin.

Connacht Gold Senior Championship

It was another good performance by the seniors in Cloone this time against Aughawillian our old adversaries. Having won our first two championship games, it was certainly another important match especially when it’s our long-term adversaries and neighbours, victory would ensure our quarterfinal berth and banish memories of the league defeat. The lads started well playing some excellent football with no shortage of skill and power. The high tempo start from the lads was to much for Aughawillan and in the space of the opening 10 minutes we were leading by a score of 1:4 to no score, with Niall McGovern scoring a cracking goal, Ballinamore continued to push forward winning the majority of knockdowns and 50/50 balls with their controlled football leading to another excellent goal this time for Paddy. The good football was to continue and the lads went in at half time leading by 2:08 to 0:3. The second half started differently with a renewed Aughawillan taking to the field and showing why they were county champions , they went on to kick 5 unanswered scores at the start and were certainly much improved on the first half. Keelan McHugh grabbed an important third goal for Ballinamore and the game ended with a great victory by a score of 3:11 to 0:13

 

Pyramid Bookmakers Junior A Club Championship

Our Junior A lads also put in a great performance at the weekend beating Kiltubrid by a score of 2:17 to 3:08

 

Ballinamore Festival

Well done to Aobhinne Boyle and the u14 Girls Leitrim Team who officially opened this year Family festival on Sunday gone. The rain stayed away and they helped launch this years packed calendar which includes a number of GAA related events such as the over 40’s football which should give the youngsters a glimpse of some of the stars of the past and the Childrens Blitz which is on this Thursday at 1600. One of the new events this year was Ballinamore Ninja style which was on Monday night and had teams from all the local GAA clubs taking part in a very fun and exciting event- there will be more heats over the coming week and this mini county championship is not to be missed. Special thanks must be given to the festival committee and all the organisers who give up their time to organise this brilliant week of entertainment and we would like to thank them all

 

Well Done

Well done to Dillon Beirne on winning the Golfing Union of Ireland Connacht Junior u16 title, Dillon is an accomplished footballer as well as golfer and everyone at the club would like to congratulate him on this great achievement.

Connacht Gold Senior Championship

 

It was another good performance by the seniors in Cloone this time against Gortletteragh. Having won our first championship game last week, it was certainly another important match and one we needed to win with the games coming thick and fast. The lads started well with Niall McGovern ending the game with an impressive 2:07, and the lads went in at half time leading by 2:10 to 0:4, the good form continued in the second half with the final score 3:20 to 0:9. It was a good performance all round and good preparation for this Fridays game against Aughawillian. The Willies will certainly offer a sterner test, and after our loss in the league to them it will certainly be one the lads are up for, a great game instore and one not to be missed. Hopefully as many of you as possible will make their way to Cloone to cheer the lads to victory.
Next up for the lads is Aughawillian at 20:30 on Friday in Cloone

 

Pyramid Bookmakers Junior B Club Championship

 

Our Junior B lads started their championship campaign on Saturday against Bornacoola and despite a good performance they lost by a point. The final score was 1:13 to 1:12, hopefully the lads will get the win they deserve in their next outing

 

Well Done

 

Well done to our u16 boys who played in the Bryan Cullen invitational tournament on Sunday. The lads played very well and only lost out in the Semi finals to Corofin having beaten Clane from Kildare and Dr. Crokes of Kerry in the group stages. The lads certainly showed that there is no shortage of skill or guile in Leitrim football at an underage level. Many thanks to Bryan Cullen and Skerries GAA for hosting this very well ran and fantastic event, special thanks also to the players, mentors, management and parents for giving up their time to make it all happen

 

U13 Boys

SOH U13 Boys suffered their first championship loss away to Leitrim Gaels last week. In a dogged affair the SOH lads finished on the wrong side of a 4:10 to 1:14 score line. Great credit to both sides in a hard fought encounter with both sets of players giving their all. Next game at home to Gortletteragh on Thursday at 7pm. Squad: Adam Kaminski , Akin Talabi , Micheal O’Brien, Dara Gavin , Killian Maguire, Colm Gartland Tommy Smith, Cian McGovern, Sam Cullen, Liam Reynolds, Dylan Reynolds, Paul Moran, Thomas Brady, Eoin Connaughton, Oisin McCarty, Cathal McCarty, Gavin D’Arcy, Naoise McManus, Paul Honeyman, Brian Sweeney.
