Intermediate: The hurlers had a great win in the County League final last Saturday against Golden/Kilfeakle. Playing against the elements in the first half, Daragh McGrath scored an early goal to help the team, Golden lead at half-time 0-11 to 1-05. The conditions improved in the second half and produced some good hurling. A goal from John Foley put Ballinahinch in front again, and in the final ten minutes Ballinahinch scored six points to win the game 2-18 to 0-16. Well done to the management and backroom team and all the players, it is reward for the effort put in and good preparation for 2016 campaign.

Auction: The club ran a successful timber auction last Sunday in Killoscully. Thanks to all those involved in organising this event over the past few weeks and on the day itself. A big effort was put in and thanks to everybody who supported the club.

Lotto: There was no winner of this weeks jackpot of €5,300. The numbers drawn 2, 17, 24, 25. Thanks to all for their continued support.

Flashback: The first Intermediate title that Ballinahinch won was ten years ago. In the 2005 county hurling league final Ballinahinch played Aherlow. Philip Kelly scored an early goal but Aherlow regained the lead shortly after that and with three minutes left Ballinahinch were trailing by four points. Points from Ger Griffin and Shane McGrath gave Ballinahinch some hope and in the last seconds of the game Shane McGrath was fouled and Ger Griffin stepped up to score a goal from a 21 yard free. The panel on the day was: Liam Berkery; Dermot Healy, Marcus Ryan, Donnacha Ryan (Capt); Michael Fitzgerald, Ger Griffin, Noel Fahy; Alan Kelly, Brnedan Healy; Donnacha McGrath, Shane McGrath, Adrian Kelly; Cathal Bourke, Philip Kelly, Tommy Kelly. Eoin Ryan, Raphael Ryan, Daniel Lyons, John Doheny, Michael Lynch, Shane Fitzgerald, William Lynch, Sean Sheehy.
