Elphin - Ballinameen

Elphin GAA Update December 5th

Elphin-Ballinameen Underage Update:

Hard luck to the Elphin-Ballinameen U20s on their 1-12 to 1-13 defeat to St Ciarans in the County Semi-Final. Trailing by 1-11 to 0-7 with ten minutes to go their never say die attitude kicked in and they out scored their opponents by 1-5 to 0-2. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be enough and the reigning champion’s eight game unbeaten streak came to an end. Thank you to the players and the Management Team of Shane Beirne, Fintan Cregg and Jim McLoughlin for their efforts.

Well done to the Elphin-Ballinameen U12s on their 0-8 to 0-6 win in the Shane Beirne Shield Semi-Final on Monday evening. Details of the Final are TBC.
