Lisgoold News

30 March, 2009


Last Wednesday night saw the rest of the draw for the Junior A Football Championship 2009. Lisgoold were fortunate enough to have received a bye into the Quarter-Finals for this year’s championship. As the Second Round has been played, we can now reveal that we will play the winners of Castlemartyr or Aghada, (That 3rd round match will be played on the weekend of the 12th April) in the quarter-final. So, a very tough encounter ahead for ‘Foley’s Army’ as both teams are well capable of going on further in this years championship. The only problem that surrounds this fixture and no doubt would bother Donal Woods and his backroom team is now that the hurling is back in full action is, when is this fixture going to be played…

Saturday morning last saw the graduation of the Under 6 "Academy Class" of 2009, where the "Having A Ball" programme progressed from the indoor training to the outdoors Ball Alley. The training has gone very well in the indoor arena, and all the young participants are looking forward to further developing their skills under the watchful tutelage of Cormac, Keith and Brendan.

A wonderful medal ceremony marked the first achievement of these young players in their development of Gaelic Games skills, and the smiling faces of players and parents alike paid the biggest tribute to the fact that , whilst early Saturday mornings will never be the same again , everyone is certainly "Having A Ball" at Lisgoold GAA .

Training for Under 6 continues at Lisgoold GAA club, at the Ball Alley, Saturday mornings 10.30 - 11.30 am.


Wednesday 1st April JFL Division 2 Lisgoold V St.Catherines in Ballynoe at 8pm

Thursday 2nd April MBHL Lisgoold V Russell Rovers in Shanagarry at 6.30pm
