Ballybay Notes

November 1st, 2011

Parish League

Finals of  Centra (Tullycorbet) U14 Parish league took place last Saturday night under lights  in Drumhowan. The 1st game  a cup semi final between Dublin and Donegal was a close fought one with Donegal beating Dublin by 1 point therefore guaranteeing them a place in the Cup final against Cork. The following game was the Shield Final between Mayo and Kerry and this resulted in a win for the Munster Boys Kerry. A delighted Captain Micheál  Duffy received the Tullycorbet Parish Shield from sponsor Marie Drury of Drury’s Centra Ballybay. The big cup final then followed between Donegal and Cork. Donegal the surprise Finalists perhaps underperformed due to a tiring semi final and Cork the leaders of league throughout won with a captivating performance. The  winning captain Eoin Mc Kearney then received the Tullycorbet Parish League Cup from sponsor Steven Drury of Drury’s Centra, Ballybay.
