COUNTY LEAGUE. Just 3 games remain in the 2015 Credit Union County League Division 5 and it’s a must win situation on all those games and even at that it would need other results to go our way. Still it has been a very successful league campaign but the only disappointment was on a number of occasions games were lost by the narrowest of margins probably not having their shooting boots on. However its still all to play for and most certainly the Management team of John Kennedy, Dan Dalton and Sean Doran who have done tremendous work achieving glory at both County and Munster level and they will leave no stone unturned in the quest for promotion to Division 4.
CHAMPIONSHIP DRAW. The Draw for the Mc Munns, Bernard O Callaghan Senior Football Championship 2015 and Cup competitions will take place in Mc Munns Bar and Restaurant Ballybunion on Friday 4th September @ 9pm Sharp. All clubs are asked to be in attendance. The local St. Marys, Asdee will be entering the draw along with 13 other clubs.
UNDER 21 COUNTY. Its amazing when three clubs enter a competition as did Beale/Bally/Asdee who joined forces and yet failed to field 15 players. (Asdee having 6 players ready to go) On last Wednesday evening this County Under 21 club championship due to take place atStack Park, Ballybunion against Austin Stacks failed to go ahead for reasons unknown. Pulling out of a County competition ; (if that’s the case) is just not good enough as when all we hear from clubs and players; is there is no football to be played?. Lads plenty football; go out and play.
SHANNON RANGERS. The Draw for the Keanes Supervalu Killorglin County Minor Football Championship Quarter Finals took place and Shannon Rangers have been drawn away to Killarney club, Spa on thisWednesday August 26th; players from the local Asdee/Bally club will be strongly represented.
