SENIOR HURLING CUP WIN: Granagh/Ballingarry senior hurlers celebrated their sixth Dunworth Cup win last Sunday evening on the home GAA grounds.

SENIOR HURLING CUP WIN: Granagh/Ballingarry senior hurlers celebrated their sixth Dunworth Cup win last Sunday evening on the home GAA grounds.

The final battle for the local tournament honours between the local senior hurlers and the top selection from the Maiguiside Croom.

On this occasion the 2-15 tpo 2-14 scoreline is a true picture of the exciting competition this final was, and so disappointing for Croom to lose by the point and to be virtually caught on the line, so to speak.

Junior B hurlers and our Junior A footballers had a very narrow 2 point and 3 point respective West Limerick defeats against Knockaderry and Newcastle West in the league.

The local club GAA lottery jackpot of €19,600 wasn’t won last week, and the Lucky Dip winners were Andrew Holmes, Orla Mulqueen and Tom Lyons.

Under 16s hurlers recorded a 2-10 to 2-1 victory in the Championship last weekend over Knockaderry, best of luck to local camogie players on Sunday bidding for national league honours. Selected are Fiona Hickey and Sarah Carey.

The club passed a vote of sympathy to Donie O’Grady and family on their recent bereavement.

All are sincerely thanked for their invaluable support, along with the outstanding group of volunteer caterers.

MUSIC AND HOLY WATER ON HILLSIDE: The May eve annual get together at Knockfierna “Rambling House” was again very well supported with over a hundred people climbing the pinacle and praying to the Hloy Year Cross, early in the evening sunshine and enjoyng the unique panoramic view. Later most of the fine attendants waited for the treat of the Knockfierna society tea/refreshments and the “rambling house” entertainment.

A big thanks you to all who took part and helped to organise the event.
