G.A.A.: There were scenes of great jubilation in Hospital sports field on Sunday last as Galtee Gaels overcame Ballylanders in the South Limerick Junior “A” football final on the score of Galtee Gaels 2-7, Ballylanders 1-4. Ballylanders led at half time by 1-1 to 0-3, having scored the goal on the stroke of half time. There were huge emotional scenes at the presentation of the T.J. Clancy Cup as T.J’s wife Marie presented the cup to Johnny Cleary and Johnny spoke very favorable of T.J in his acceptance speech. T.J was a life long member, player and official for his beloved Galtee Gaels. He passed away very suddenly at a relatively young age. The Clancy family presented to the South Board with a beautiful memorial cup in memory of their T.J. It was a fairytale end to a championship that saw Galtee Gaels being the first winners of this magnificent cup. Congratulations to Chris Gallahue of Anglesboro who was chosen “Man of the Match” in the game. Galtee Gaels now face Ahane in the county quarter final while Ballylanders play Kilteely Dromkeen in the same stage. Congratulations to Ballylanders Ladies Footballers with eight Galtee Gaels members on the panel, who are trained by Gaels player Chris Gallahue. They had a hard earned win of Cork Champions Glanworth in the Munster semi-final played at Kildorrery on Saturday last. The final score was Ballylanders 0-8, Glanworth 1-3. The highlight of the game was a penalty save by goal keeper Orla Moriartry just before half time. They now meet the Kerry champions in the Munster Final.

WALKERS: A large group of Anglesboro Walking Group headed off the Annascaul in West Kerry for their last outing of the year. They walked “The Tom Crean Way” This is a very enjoyable walk over a three hour period. It is in the home area of the Great South Pole Walker, the late Tom Crean. Following the walk, the group sat down to a lovely meal in the South Pole Inn after a social evening, a tired – but happy group returned home to the Boro around mid-night. The group is looking forward to April 2014 – when their season will start again.
