BALLYBACON/GRANGE HURLING AND CAMOGIE
Intermediate - We played Lattin Gaels in Cashel last Sunday in the first round of this year’s County Intermediate Hurling Championship. First half points from Johnny English and Andrew Heffernan left Lattin ahead at half time 1.8 to 0.3. We missed good scoring chances at start of second half. We fought back with points from Daniel O’Regan and Tom Kirwan and 2 from Brendan Cummins but Lattin/Aherlow ran out winners in the finish 1.10 to 0.7. The second round game against Clonakenny takes place on the Bank Holiday Monday at 6.30pm in Holycross. Juvenile training Tuesday night in Goatenbridge from 6.30pm to 7.30pm for hurling and camogie.
Camogie - We would like to thank everyone for coming to our launch on April 16. We were delighted to see that most of the children came back to play again last Tuesday week.
All the children who want to continue to play must register with Rosaleen O’Leary and all have to have their own helmet and hurley. These can be purchased through the school at a discount price. The girls will pick their player of the week next week with our new Player of the Week trophy. These trophies were kindly donated to us by Colette Condon Unisex Hair salon. She also kindly donated a full First Aid bag. Patrick O’Gorman, Engineering and Project Management kindly donated a set of jerseys. Juvenile Hurling Club - Congratulations to last week’s player of the week for the under 8’s, Alex O’Gorman.

The Club would like to thank everyone who attended and helped with the monster auction. Thanks to Jackie Walsh for his work as auctioneer and also to Joan and Liam in the Glenview Lounge Goatenbridge for the use of the lounge. To all who sponsored or donated items thank you. It was a successful day and all money raised will be well spent on the many on going projects.
Kildanogue Duck Ponds - Club members were shocked to discover the theft of the three timber gates recently. This matter is in the hands of the Gardai. This beautiful amenity is available for use by everyone, to destroy it by theft and rubbish dumping is not acceptable.
