Best of luck this weekend to Ballindereen as they play in the All-Ireland Junior B Championship Final against Doneraile (Cork).
They had a great win over favourites Thurles Sarsfields (Tipperary) in the All-ireland semi by 2-10 to 0-11. They were losing 0-9 to 0-3 at halftime, but two early second half goals and some massive defending saw them win in relative comfort at the end. They are a team mainly consisting of golden oldies with some everygreen players playing All-Ireland glory. A credit to them.
Ballindereen team in semi:
Sean Corcoran, Mark Ganly, Noel Linnane, C. Forde, F. Killoran, Keith Carr 0-2 (0-1f), J. Forde, G. Quinn, G. Forde 0-1, Finbarr Meehan 0-3, Sean Costello 1-0, Robert McTigue, S. Coen, G. Fahy and Gerry Helebert 0-4 (0-2f). Subs that came on were Gavin Duffy 1-0 and F. Molloy.
For the record, well done and congrats to Limerick club Killeedy on organising this competition.
Game is on Sunday, and as far as I know, Ballindereen are in talks are present with Sky Sports over the rights to show it live, so if you cant make it down to Limerick..........
