The Intermediate hurlers played Blackrock in the league on Saturday evening last April 20 in Caherelly. Blackrock were the stronger side on the day and had built up a comprehensive lead by half time. Despite the fact that the game was out of reach by half time, Ballybricken nevertheless continued to work hard which resulted in a more evenly contested second half.

Our U16 Footballers narrowly lost to Shamrock Gaels in the 13 a-side Championship on Monday April 15. Final score 2-6 to 2-4 in favor of Shamrock Gaels.

The U15 Footballers drew with St. Mary’s-Sean Finns in the Division 3 football league last week. Final score 2-2 to 0-8.

Our U12 Footballers had their first game of the season away to Knockainey on Thursday evening last. Despite the terrible weather conditions both teams are to be complimented for serving up a very enjoyable game and we were unlucky to lose by a single point. Final score Ballybricken 1-5 : Knockainey 3-0.
