BALLYBACON/GRANGE GAA CLUB
We travelled to Cahir on Saturday last to compete in 7-a-side tournament organised in memory of former Cahir player Liam Kiely who tragically lost his life. We were in the same group with Fr Sheehys, Moyle Rovers, Cahir B, and Ballingeary teams and despite close games we qualified for the semi final against St Marys. This was very close all through but we emerged winners to go through against Cahir in the Final. This was played before a large vocal attendance. Cahir made the better start and were leading at half time by 3 points. We had wind advantage in the second half and competed better. We scored the only goal of match with Johnny English winning a good possession and finishing to net to leave 2 points between teams. Peter Hally fielded puck out and levelled the match with a good point from play. Time was running out when Eoin Walsh stepped up to a long range free and his shot was straight and accurate to put us in lead for the first time. The long whistle sounded shortly afterwards and we were proud winners of this inaugural Tournament. Cahir GAA Club can be proud of this tournament which was organised very well and enjoyed by all the teams. Our Captain Alan O’Gorman was presented with Trophy by Willie Kiely and Peter Hally was presented with the Man of Match award.
