Our Adult Ladies were beaten in the League Division 3 final in a windswept Kilbride on Sunday. Facing into the teeth of a strong wind, Barry’s started slowly, finding shooting into the conditions difficult. We were well in the game until two quick Shannon Geals goals midway through the half broke the game open for them. On the turn around, Geals were able to maintain possession into the wind, and as St Barry’s chased the game, the ball didn’t really fall their way in front of goal, and the Geals were able to pick off scores on the break . In spite of a hardworking performance, we lost out on a scoreline of 3-15 to 0-6.
The girls will be disappointed with the result, but on reflection will be happy enough overall with how the league campaign went.

There is a break now for a number of weeks while several of the girls sit state exams.

St Barry’s Squad: Rebecca Cox, Rita Hagan, Geraldine Farrell, Jane McGowan, Aoife Mcloughlin, Denise Bennett, Emer Callaghan, Emer Burke, Lisa Murtagh, Grainne Gaynor, Emer Wallace, Amy Cousins, Sarah McVeigh, Shauna Murphy, Shauna Rogan, Nadine Murphy, Claire McGlynn, Aoife Gaynor, Rhiannon Cox, Lauren Bannaghan, Lorna Cahill, Joanne Rogers, Ann Marie Murphy.


Action continues for our Under 12 and U 14 teams. Both of our Under 14 teams played last week. Our girls were well beaten by a very strong Kilbride team on Wednesday, while the lads had a good win over Tulsk, and have qualified for the D3 League Final.

The club is saddened to mark the passing in recent months of two of our distinguished former players, the late Anthony and John McCann formerly of Ballytoohey.
The five McCann brothers represented the club in their day, with John featuring for Westmeath for number of years. Of course, Jimmy is still hale and hearty in Ballytoohey, where he follows the GAA scene closely. We also extend our sympathies to the Garraghan and Rogers families who lost loved ones over the last week.
