.: Joe Scanlon R.I.P.
Everyone connected with Ballingarry AFC was shocked and saddened with the news of the tragic death of Joe Scanlon following a traffic accident in the early hours of Saturday morning December 1st last.
Joe played soccer for several seasons with Ballingarry AFC during which time he won numerous honours during their highly successful period in the early 2000s. He signed for the club in 2001 and played in their Youth team that won the Desmond youth cup for the first time and won the division 2 title. He was also part of their junior team that won the Desmond cup that season also for the first time playing a major part in both successes scoring in both finals.
The following season he was part of Ballingarrys Division 1 league winning team and he followed up that success winning their one and only Premier division with the club in 2004.
Joe was a skillful midfielder with a silky touch who had a great eye for a pass. His pace left many a defender in his wake and for many seasons he was Ballingarrys penalty taker, never failing to find the target from the spot. He added another Desmond cup to his collection in 2007 while another Division 1 title followed with a division 1 league cup in 2008 as Ballingarry won the Division 1 double.
In all he played for seven seasons with Ballingary AFC during which time he won two Desmond cups, one Premier title, two Division 1 titles, one Division 1 League cup, one Desmond youth cup and one Youth Division 2 title while he also played in the Munster Youth Cup semi final with Ballingarry in 2002. He also featured in two divisional cup finals with the club. He also managed the clubs Ladies team for a period.
Following his debut for Ballingarry AFC on August 17th 2001 against Breska Rovers he went on to play 175 games for the club scoring 49 goals. He returned to Granagh United at the start of season 2009-10.
Joe was a gentleman both on and off the field and will be sadly missed by his many friends within Ballingarry AFC. The club wish to extend their condolences to his family and friends and his team mates in Granagh United FC. May he rest in peace.

Ballingarrys underage teams are all off the blocks with several games played during the week past. The under 14s were in Askeaton last Monday where after a dream start when James Storin gave them a first minute lead they went under 4-1. The 8s were in Abbeyfeale where they lost while both Under 10 sides lost 3-1 to Abbeyfeale United and Bally Rovers respectfully.
At the weekend both 10s sides were in action again where they recorded much better results. The A team were 2-1 winners against visiting Broadford United where Ballingarry got off to a perfect start when Calvin Quinn connected with a cross from the left to open the scoring in the first minute. The visitors equalised against the run of play five minutes before the break. Ballingarry had most of the possession during the second period with Broadford defending well. However the winners were not to be denied when Michael Molloy headed brilliantly to the net from a corner. The Bs were also at home with Glin the visitors, both teams were evenly matched with Anna Mullane and Ronal Keating forcing the Glin keeper into fine saves. Ballingarry were defending well with Eamonn Keating, Cathal Moran and Gary Storin working hard to keep the game scoreless at the break.
The homeside took the lead early in the second half when Oran Ryan slotted home Gearoid Fennimans pass. Two fast goals from Glin left Ballingarry in trouble as the game neared its end but with just three minutes remaining Eoin O'Connor came to Ballingarrys rescue when he beat three players to secure a share of the spoils for Ballingarry.
The under 12 girls started their defence of the division 1 title in emphatic style with a 3-0 win in Askeaton. Two goals in the opening four minutes from Anna Mullane and Orla O'Connor set Ballingarry on their way. A third goal three minutes into the second half from Val Sheehy sealed the points.

Ballingarrys attempt to lift the under 15 cup for the first time ended in failure at Clounreask on Tuesday as NCW beat them 3-0 in the final. Ballingarry will be bitterly disappointed as they were the better team throughout but their failure to take the many chances they created cost them dearly. NCW took the lead totally against the run of play when a mixup in the Ballingarry defence allowed the centre forward shoot home from the edge of the box. It was NCWs first sortie into the Ballingarry area on fifteen minutes. Clancy shot wide after making space while Murphy and Smith both went close before the break. It was all Ballingarry for the opening twenty minutes of the second half. Murphy saw his piledriver hit the crossbar and bounce on the line before being cleared, Clancy missed from close in and saw another effort hit the crossbar while Smith again went close. Ballingarry continued to press and were finally caught with just five minutes remaining when the winners got a fine long range second before a third followed near the end.
The girls teams secured silverware on Monday and Wednesday when first the under 10s lifted the Division 1 Shield with Molly Cagney getting both Ballingarrys goals while on Wednesday it was the 12s turn when they secured the division 1 title when Chloe Collum got the only goal of the game five minutes from time to defeat Askeaton.

Killeaney equalised from a fine header before hat-trick hero Aaron Smith gave Ballingarry the lead again just before the break.

Ballingarrys under 8s travelled to Abbeyfeale depleted in numbers but put in their best performance of the season. Gary Storin and Gary Moran defended well early on but Enda Moran got Ballingarry going with a 25 yard shot to the corner of the net. Abbey equalised within three minutes but Eddie Foley had Ballingarry ahead again from a breakaway goal before half time. Ronal Keating in the Ballingarry goal was tested early in the second half but met it head on with two outstanding saves. Joe Kelly who was introduced at half time became the target man up front and linked up well with Enda Moran who went up to score three more goals in the second half to bring his tally to four for the day. Abbey got a late consolation to make it 5-2 to Ballingarry.
The 16s were in Broadford and in spite of taking the lead through Darragh Hehir and playing some good football they ended up at the wrong end of a 4-1 defeat.

Leading 2-1 from the first leg Ballingarry could have afforded to go under by a 1-0 scoreline and still progress on the away goals rule. With Carrig leading 1-0 Ballingarry had what appeared a good goal disallowed but still looked to have done enough as the clock ticked down. They had already hit the woodwork through Doyle.

Collecting the ball on the edge of the Ballingarry box from a Feenagh corner he raced the length of the pitch before finishing to the net. Feenagh drew level before the break but in truth Ballingarry squandered many chances to regain the lead. Even though they were lucky not to fall behind when Feenagh hit the crossbar. Ballingarry dominated the last fifteen minutes and were thankful to Murphy again as he got what proved the winner with another fine finish ten minutes from time.
The 12s too were in the winner’s enclosure with a 3-1 win at home to Askeaton. Goals from Cathal Finn, Bryan Mulqueen and Kieran Storin saw Ballingarry come from behind to record a fine win.

However the home side through Marcus Moore secured a half-time lead when he headed home at the far post to finish off a fine move. The second half saw Rathkeale get stronger but without really threatening John O'Grady in goal and it was Ballingarry who went closest to extending their lead as they caught the visitors on the break.
