.: Under 10s Complete Double.
The curtain came down on Ballingarrys season on Saturday last (June 13th 2009) in another blaze of glory as the under 10s lifted the cup for the first time in the clubs history. In a re run of the division 1 shield final this encounter against NCW was as tight as the first with just one goal again separating the sides at the end.
Ballingarry survived two early frights before taking the lead from Mark O' Kelly with 8 minutes gone in the game. Their lead was cancelled just before the break when Killian Brouder sent an unstoppable free to the top left corner following Hickeys foul.
The second half was as competitive as the first with both sides going close. Robbie Lynch in goal for Ballingarry made some crucial stops before finally Ballingarry got what proved to be the winner. The outstanding Edward Houlihan was fouled fifteen yards from goal and up stepped Mikey Hickey to break NCW hearts again just as he did in the shield final driving the ball all the way. With just two minutes remaining there was no time for NCW to find a way back leaving the under 10 cup travelling to Ballingarry for the first time and ending a truly memorable season which sees six trophies visit Ballingarry.
Congratulations to Benji Kelly and his squad on becoming the first team in the clubs history to win an underage double.
.: No Change At AGM
Ballingarry AFC held their Annual General Meeting on Friday June 12th last with all outgoing officers and committee returning to office unopposed. The big talking point on the night was the appointment of a new A team manager to replace George Quinlivan, otherwise the meeting was uneventful.
Ballingarry AFC Management Committee for season 2009/10
Chairman: Pascal Moynihan.
Vice - Chairman: John Clancy.
Secretary: James Clancy.
Treasurer: Seamus Burke.
Management Committee: Declan Hartnett, Martha O' Connor, Tom Burke, Rory Alymer, Paul Molloy.
.: Ballingarry part company with Quinlivan
After a partnership that lasted seven years and yielded five trophies Ballingarry have finally parted company with A team manager George Quinlivan. The search now begins for his replacement and what a act it will be to follow.
Quinlivan oversaw the most successful period in Ballingarrys history with no fewer than five trophies being secured. The Division 1 title twice, the Division 1 league cup, the Desmond cup and finally the Premier Division title all visited Ballingarry during his reign.
He leaves with with fond memories of his stay with Ballingarry AFC.
.: Ballingarry Boys impress for academy
On Saturday May 30th last the Limerick Desmond under 11 academy won their four team tournament held in Abbeyfeale. All four Ballingarry players featured prominantly in the success during the semi final against North Tipperary which they won 2-1 with Alan Ryan (Kilcornan) and Lee Kelly (Askeaton) getting the goals.
In the final the same players were on the mark as they defeated Galway SBL academy 2-1. Limerick District SBL were the fourth team involved. Mikey Morrissey, Nathan Clancy, Mikey Hickey and Cathal O' Keeffe played in the two games while O' Keeffe went off in the first minute of the final.
.: Under 16s Capture Cup
Under 16 Cup Final (Carrigkerry) - Ballingarry 2 (O' Connell, S. Doherty) Broadford United 1
For so long it looked as if the season would be one to forget but it is now proving to be one of the most successful in the clubs history. Last evening in Carrig the under 16s won their cup for the first time in the clubs history.
Broadford United proved capable opponents and took the lead after 25 minutes when a right wing cross was volleyed home from 12 yards. Dean Clancy was fouled in the box to provide Barry O' Connell with the opportunity to restore parity which he did although it took two attempts after the keeper saved his first effort with the rebound falling kindly for him to stroke home. Ballingarry were now in control as the half time whistle was sounded.
The second half was all Ballingarry with Shane Dohertys strike proving decisive but hardly enough reward for their dominance. So the under 16 cup is added to the Division 3 title, the under 17 cup and the Division 1 league cup won by the ladies and with the under 10s to play their Division 1 shield final against NCW and also an under 10 cup semi to come, it could yet prove to be Ballingarrys greatest season ever.

Thursday - Under 16 Cup Semi-Final - Ballingarry 2 (Clancy, O' Connell) NCW 2 aet
Friday - Under 10 Cup 2nd Round - Ballingarry 5 NCW Rvs 1
Ballingarry will have to travel to Newcastlewest and do it all again after letting a two goal slip in their under 16 cup semi last Thursday. Goals from Dean Clancy and Barry O' Connell had Ballingarry coasting that was until NCW pulled one back just before the break. NCW were probably the better team during the second half but still had to rely on a somewhat soft penalty to send the game to extra time where they could well have won through to play Broadford United in the final.
On Friday the 10s had to come from a goal down before easing through to the quarter final against Granagh United. Mikey Hickey and Mark O' Kelly were amongst the goals.
On Sunday the 8s finished their seasos with a resounding 7-1 win at home to NCW Rovers. Sean O' Connor with 4 and Cathal Kavanagh with 2 before Brian Mulqueen with 1 were the Ballingarry scorers.
Ballingarry AFC will hold their second annual underage presentation night on Friday night May 29th next. Proceedings will get underway at 7pm.
Ballingarry AFC will hold its AGM on Friday June 12th next in the clubhouse. All nominations and motions must be in writing and with the secretary James Clancy on or before Friday May 29th next.
.: Ballingarry Players Are Honoured
Ballingarry had three players amongst the player of the year recipitants. Anthony Forde was voted Under 16 Division 1 Player of the Year. Mikey Hickey was voted Under 12 Division 2 and Killian Begley got the under 10 Division 4 award. Its the first occassion that the club had so many winners in the one season. Congratulations to all three on their fine achievement.
.: B Team collect trophy
The B team completed their league campaign (May 8th 2009) on a losing note when visitors Askeaton B defeated them 2-1 in what was only their second league defeat of a highly successful first season in football. It didn't dampen the celebrations though as League representative PJ Hogan presented the Division 3 trophy to captain Brian Fitzgerald following the game. Ballingarrys scorer on the night was Joe Condron which in fact was his first goal for the club.
.: B Team are Champions / 17s Retain Cup
In what was a glorious weekend for the club the junior B team won their first ever trophy while the under 17s became the first team in the clubs history to retain a trophy.
On Sunday (May 3rd 2009) the B team needed just a point from their penultimate league game to secure the title. As it transpired they went all the way and collected all three points from Shannonside B to make absolutely certain of the division 3 championship. A goal up at the break from David O' Hanlon settled the nerves for the second half where further goals from Mike Condron and Kristan Doyle made it safe. Congratulations to Benji O' Kelly and James Higgins on leading the team to a club first.
On Monday the under 17s wrote themselves into the clubs record books with an emphatic 5-2 cup success against Carrig Celtic at Clonreask. They had to come from two goals down in the first fifteem minutes to lift the cup. A goal from Shane Doherty just before the break set the stage for a second half bombardment where further goals from Doherty again, man of the match Anthony Forde, a superb strike from Alan Cronin and a thunderous header from captain Marcus Moore sealed the victory. Well done to the managers John Clancy, Pascal Moynihan and Rory Alymer.
Also on Sunday the A team secured their premier division status with an easy 4-1 win at Old Mill. Goals from Darragh O' Grady, Eoin Kennedy and a Rory Alymer brace garaunteed Premier football for Ballingarry next season.
Also on Sunday the under 11 team were in action in the international Danone cup at Rathkeale. A draw against Moneypoint of Clare saw them progress to the semi final on pens against Charleville where another draw saw another penalty shoot out but sadly they went under 5-4 in sudden death.
On Tuesday last the under 8s went out of their cup at Old Mill 4-3 where goals from Keith Kelly and Cathal Kavanagh (2) were not enough. Then on Thursday the under 10 A team made light work of Shannonside as they progressed on a 5-0 scoreline in their cup. Richard O' Keeffe was amongst the goals.

On Sunday the junior A team drew in Broadford in a meaningless game with Darragh O' Grady and a first ever goal for Neil Dunworth sealing a 2-2 draw. The B team took another step towards the Division 3 title with a massive 5-0 defeat of NCW Rovers B with goals from David O' Hanlon (2) Kristan Doyle (2) and Thomas O' Keeffe. The result now means they can clinch the title at home to Askeaton B on Friday next.
The under 10 A side rounded off their league programme with a 4-1 loss in Askeaton where Aaron Smith was the Ballingarry scorer. However they can look forward to a Division1 shield final against NCW following their third place finsihing position.

Monday April 13th: Under 11 Cup Final (Athea) - Abbeyfeale United 1 Ballingarry 0
The highlight of the weekend was the under 11 cup final but sadly for Ballingarry they went under by the only goal of the game played in Athea. A keenly contested game throughout where there was little between the teams was decided by a harshly awarded penalty after just five minutes. The Abbey striker fell under a challenge from Keith Murphy and referee John Roche was quick to point to the spot.
On Saturday the under 17s booked a final date with Carrig Celtic as they try to become the first team from the club to retain a trophy. This cup semi final was a cracker throughout with Ballingarry coming from behind twice to level with NCW. First Barry O' Connell and then Mark Snow equalised for the holders to see Ballingarry finally go through on penalties.
Both junior teams enjoyed wins on Sunday with first the A yeam winning in Killeaney thanks to a Kevin Forde goal and then in the evening the B team kept right on course for a historic league success with captain Brian Fitzgeraldss headed goal proving decisive at home to Ferry Rangers. Finally the under 12 side became the first team to finish out their league campaign when they were well beaten in Broadford.

lUnder 11 Cup Semi-final NCW 0 Ballingarry 4 (N. Clancy, J. Murphy 2, E. Houlihan)
Under 14 Division 1 - Kilcornan 1 Ballingarry 0
Ballingarry made it through to their first under 11 cup final since 2006 and a meeting with Abbeyfeale United following a comprehensive 4-0 drubbing of NCW in Newcastle West last Saturday. Ballingarry started the brighter and took the lead after fifteen minutes when Nathan Clancy fired home from Edward Houlihans through ball. Ballingarry made chances to increase their lead when Clancy fired wide and both Jason Murphy and Jack Banks wasted good opportunities.
The second half was just five minutes old when Murphy got the first of his two when Cathal O' Keeffe put a fine ball behind the home defence for Murphy to fire home and he added his second mid way through the half when he got on the end of O' Keeffes cross to score from close in. Ballingarry rounded off the scoring five from time when Edward Houlihan picked his spot from the edge of the box.
Team: O' Donnell; Fitzgerald; Hickey; K Murphy; Morrissey; Duffy (McMahon); Clancy; O' Keeffe; Houlihan; Banks (S. Murphy); J. Murphy (Smith).
The under 14s travelled to Kilcornan to return home empty handed thanks to a 1-0 defeat by the local side.

Sunday Desmond Cup Round 2 - Ballingarry A 0 Adare United 1
Rathkeale A 1 Ballingarry 0 aet.
The Under 16s served up a cracker on Friday under lights in Abbeyfeale where the home side went up 2-0 at the break. Doherty pulled one back only for Abbey to restore their two goal advantage. However a storming performance from Ballingarry saw goals from Barry O' Connell and a penalty from Anthony Forde send the game to extra time. The replay will now be in Ballingarry where the home side should be slight favourites.
The under 8s recorded a fine 2-2 draw at Athea with goals from Keith O' Kelly and Cathal Kavanagh.
On Sunday both Junior teams went out of the Desmond cup. The A team fell to Division 2 side Adare by the only goal of the game a result that effectively ends their season while the B team probably gave the performance of the season taking Rathkeale A all the way to the last minute of extra time before going out by the smallest of margins. Indeed they probably should have won the game with David O' Hanlon and Pardaig Forde spurning the two best chances of the game.

The under 14 side beat Askeaton 1-0 in their second last Division 1 game with Denis Hayes getting the only goal while in the afternoon the youths went out of their cup at Carrig where Mark Snows and Kevin Fordes strikes were not enough to overcome the home side and referee on this occasion.
On Sunday the Junior B team booked a trip to Rathkeale in the second round of the Desmond cup when Kristan Doyle and Brian Fitzgerald scored the goals in this first round replay. The sixteens will go to Abbeyfeale in the 1/4 final of the cup after Kevin Moynihans hat-trick and Barry O' Connells lone strike saw off Killeaney in Ballingarry while Denis Kellys first league goals of the season and Darragh O' Grady and Eoin Kennedys efforts saw them collect three points at Old Mill.

The under 12 went down 2-1 at Breska Rovers but not without a fight. 2-0 down at the break left them with little hope but a fine second half performance saw them pull a goal back through Nathan Clancy to set up a grand stand finish. Sadly they just couldn't get the second goal their efforts deserved. The under 8s hosted NCW Rvs in the afternoon with a Sean O' Connor strike proving not enough as the visitors went home 3-1 winners.
On Sunday the 16s visited Broadford but returned empty handed following a 3-2 loss. Anthony Forde repeated brother Kevins two goal feat from the previous day but to no avail.

On Sunday the junior A team progressed to the second round of the Desmond cup defeating Pallaskenry B on a 4-1 scoreline.

The under 15s went the way of the under 13s of the previous week when they went out of their cup to Creeves Celtic. Ballingarry dominated long periods but failed to breach a good visiting defence whose keeper made a least one fine save. The winner came three minutes from time from a rare break for Creeves.
The under 12s are through to their cup semi final without kicking a ball after receiving a walkover from Adare United. The youths recorded their second successive win with a fine 3-2 home success against Glin Rovers. Barry O' Connell with yet another brace and Marcus Moore were the winners marksmen.

It was league success for Ballingarry but cup failure over the weekend. On Saturday the under 13s went out of their cup at home to Creeves. No score at the break with the best chance falling to Conor Houlihan but the keeper saved. A bad mistake led to the opening goal and it was all downhill after that with the visitors running out easy winners.
The youths recorded their first win of the season with a fine 5-2 victory at home to Adare. A superb performance saw them recover from a goal down with all Ballingarrys goals coming from under 15 players Barry O' Connell (2), Anthony Forde (2) and Shane Doherty with one.
On Sunday the junior sides season of woe continued with the Premier cup the latest competiton to exit. Killeaneys one nil win sees Ballingarry with just the Desmond cup to look forward to. No such fare for the B team who took another giant step towards the Division 3 title. Padraig Forde added another hat-trick to his already impressive career CV while a brace fron David O' Hanlon secured all three points from their visit to Pallaskenry.

Munster Junior Cup Round 4 - Mayfield United 1 Ballingarry 0
A bad week ended with Ballingarry going out of the Munster Junior Cup in Cork City with local side Mayfield United progressing by the smallest of margins. Ballingarry had a "goal" disallowed for offside and had the lions share of the play on the all weather pitch but couldn't make the most of it and as is often the case fell behind and eventually went out on a 1-0 scoreline. Ballingarrys A team now have just the Desmond cup and the Premier Division Cup to look forward to as any ambition of winning the title are well gone.
The 17s are also out of the National cup following their 3-0 reversal at NCW on Saturday. Two down at the break with the second coming on the stroke of half-time from a throw that was initially awarded to Ballingarry by the NCW linesman only for the referee to over rule his decision and give the throw to NCW from which they scored. If that wasn't enough NCW scored from a twice taken free after the first effort struck the referee and he allowed NCW to retake it from which they again scored direct.
All considered the 3-0 scoreling was somewhat harsh on the losers. On the previous Saturday the under 14s became the first club side to exit their domestic cup when visitors Athea went through on a 3-2 scoreline. Barry O' Connell got both Ballingarry goals
