Tansey Cup: St Barrys 1-13 Ballinameen 1-16
St Barry’s Adult Men’s team lost out to Ballinameen in a rip-roaring Tansey Cup Division 3 League game in Ballinameen this evening. Ballinameen got off to a great start, scoring a goal and a point in the opening minutes. They held this lead through the first half, leading 1-8 to 0-7 at half time. 2 early points after half-time put the home team in the box seat, but a brilliant goal from Ray Rogers spurred a St Barry’s comeback, and they dominated the general for long periods of the second half. St Barrys levelled the game with 9 minutes to play from an Alan Callaghan free, but it was to be our last score, as Ballinameen finished strongest, scoring 3 late points without reply.

Well done to both groups, and good luck in the upcoming games.
Ladies Continue Good Form:
St Barry’s Adult Ladies had to work hard to overcome a dogged St Dominic’s in their Ladies Division 3 League clash in Knocrocery today. An early goal from Lisa Murtagh got Barry’s off to a good start, but St Dominic’s came into the game, and approaching half time, the scores were level. The game turned when a speculative shot from Denise Bennett found the net, and the girls added a series of points before half time to open up a seven point lead. The second half was dominated by St Barrys, and they ran out convincing winners in the end, on a scoreline of St Barrys 4-11 St Dominics 0-10.
