Under14 Division 2 football championship . 

Coralstown Kinnegad v St Michaels.

St Michael's made the journey to Kinnegad for the first round of the under 14 Division 2 football championship campaign on a dry and breezy evening. Missing 5 players from the league final last month it was an opportunity for some younger players to make an impression. Kinnegad proved too strong and played excellent football to come away with the points, Michael's played well and never dropped the heads despite being on the back foot most of the game. This experience will prove valuable in later rounds.

A bye in round 2 will bring us into August 8th when Killucan come to Ballycomoyle for round 3.

Ladies football. 

Ballycomoyle under 16 league Division 3 Round 4..

Under 16 LGFA League Division 3 Rd 4.

Ballycomoyle 3-07

The Downs 6-10.

We played our final league match on Tuesday evening last 25/6/24 against a strong Downs side.

Ballycomoyle came out of the blocks in superb firm playing some fantastic football all over and gaining some seriously good scores. The Downs had very little answer to Ballycomoyle's dominance. Half Time Score read Ballycomoyle 3-06. The Downs 2-03.

Into the 2nd half and the Downs took complete control, There county players took the game by the scruff and dominated kicking some great points, and goals, Ballycomoyle struggled to gain any momentum and in the end a lack of training for 3 weeks with exams etc took its toll. We thank our under 14 girls who stood up to their task to help out they never looked out of their depth. Onwards now to Championship football and we look forward to seeing who we play.

Ballycomoyle ladies football.


Our under 14 lose out by the narrowest of margins. 


Our under 14 girls welcomed Loughnavalley to Ballycomoyle for the last round of the under 14 League on Thursday evening last 20/6/24. The loughnavalley girls got off to a great start in this match going into a 1-04 lead. It took 12 minutes in the match for our girls to get the first score and played some fine football resulting in 5-point lead at the break. Loughnavalley made some changes in their forward line and they came out strong in the second half, they took their scores very well while we were unlucky at the other end with some fine shots on goal unfortunately going the wrong side of the uprights. With 5 minutes to go the Ballycomoyle girls were trailing by 4 points but the girls dug deep and a goal by our girls left it a one point match. Ballycomoyle gave everything in the last few minutes of this match with two great chances to level the match but unfortunately it wasn't to be. As the final whistle sounded. It was Loughnavalley winning out on a score of Ballycomoyle 5-09 Loughnavalley 3-16.  

Well done to this amazing bunch of young ladies who kept battling until the whistle sound's and who played with great heart and determination with every girl giving 100%.

Many thanks to our under 12 comrades who play with us, they are very much part of our team now, and thank you to all the parents and supporters.

We now look forward to the under 14 championship.

U14 league div 3 Final.

Result 

St Michaels 5-6

Inny shamrocks 3-10

St Michaels emerged victorious from an enthralling final played in Multyfarnham on Monday evening.

Inny Shamrocks got off to a perfect start scoring 1-1 in the opening few minutes and used the wind to full advantage to go in at the break up by 6 points. 

Another early goal for Inny Shamrocks set a difficult task for St Michaels but the team responded in ferocious capacity to bring back the deficit and push into a 4 point lead with minutes to go.

Inny shamrocks scored a point and a late free set the heart rates racing but Michaels held firm and when the final whistle blew joyous celebrations erupted on the field and on the sideline.

Many thanks to the parents and players for sticking together through some tough times.

Ladies football underage.

Under 14 Report.

We welcomed Killucan to Ballycomoyle on Thursday evening last 6/6/24 for a round of the U14 League. Injuries and holidays meant we had only 14 players and none of which was our goalie, which meant from the first whistle we were on under pressure. 

Killucan started strong and were fluent in their passes and accurate between the posts, however when our girls got going the sides evened up and we went in at half time only 2 points down. In the second half the Ballycomoyle girls started the strongest however Killucan brought on fresh legs and with no subs of our own the girls ran out of steam. The final score Ballycomoyle 3-03 Killucan 4-13.

We are very proud of this amazing bunch of girls who after defeat can still laugh and smile and offer great encouragement to one another. 

Special thanks to the 5 girls who took on the role of goalie throughout the match and each one of them had amazing saves.

Many thanks to all the, Mams and Dad's, and Nans and Grandads, and all the supporters who came out to support the girls. Many thanks to Killucan for a very Sporting game. 

Up next is an away game to St Mary's Thursday 13th June.

Congratulations to the St. Michaels lads on a fantastic win.


Ballycomoyle Ladies.

Our Ballycomoyle under 14 girls travelled the long distance to Castledaly Gaa to face Cill Oige in the U14 League, our squad was diminished due to injury and school tours and end of school activities so we enlisted the help of some of our U12 colleagues,

Cill Oige got off to the better start and went 2 goals and 4 points up in the first 15 mins, however our girls showed great strength and determination and kept battling hard. We went in at the break on a score line 4 10 to 2 1.

More injuries meant we had to bring in our super subs and they didn't disappoint, when the 2nd half started our girls were on top and kept the ball in the Cill Oige half, we sent over wide balls and were very unlucky now to have another 2 goals in the net in the first 10 mins of 2nd half.

Cill oige pressed on and found the net twice more. The Ballycomoyle girls never gave up and as the game went on we got stronger and stronger We just ran out of time. 

It just wasn't our night.

Thank you to this amazing bunch of girls who play with great heart and good humour, to the parents for travelling and who are always there supporting these girls.

Final score 6.16 to 3.06

Thank you to Cill Oige for great match.



Westmeath Ladies Gaa launched their adult championships on Wednesday night last 22/5/24. Shannon Farrelly was present to represent our junior ladies team.

Under 16 LGFA League Div 3. Round 1 Result.

Athlone 3-09 Ballycomoyle 7-05

Our U16 ladies kicked off their 2024 league campaign away to Athlone on Tuesday evening last. In what's always a tough fixture, the game started with athlone the dominant team, scoring 4 unanswered points in the first 10 mins. Ballycomoyle finally got to grips with the opposition scoring some lovely points, Athlone hit back with a very lucky goal, a great save from our keeper, and a rebound off the Athlone forward ended in a goal. But Ballycomoyle didn't lie down and hit back with a goal of their own. As ref blew for half time, the score line read Athlone 2-04 Ballycomoyle 1-02.

A few half time tactical changes from the Ballycomoyle management team at the interval saw a very different team in the second half. Athlone couldn't get a handle on the game and for 10 mins were pinned in their own half conceding three fantastic taken goals by our girls and even a missed penalty in that time. Saw the Full Time Score Athlone 3-09

Ballycomoyle 7-05.

A fantastic game to watch for the spectators in attendance.

Next up for Ballycomoyle, another tricky away fixture to St Joseph's next Tuesday evening 30/4/24

This was a fantastic game of football showing that Ballycomoyle can compete with the very best out there. The management team have to be congratulated on the tactical way they had the girls fired up for the second 

half well done to everyone .

Thanks to Athlone for a very sporting game of football.


Ballycomoyle Ladies GAA.

Under 14.

Division 2.

Result.

After a late start the match got underway with the visitors taking the lead to go 1-1 up 15 minutes in, they pushed over another 2 points to give themselves a comfortable lead, the Ballycomoyle keeper was busy and pulled off 2 wonderful saves to keep us in the game, at half time we were trailing by 6 points on a score line of 1 -1 to 2-4. 

After a wonderful team talk by management and the girls themselves changes were made and the girls got down to business straight away pushing over 2 wonderful points and they found the net which brought them right back into contention and half way through the second half we were trailing by a point.

The girls didn't stop there, the Caulry defence had a difficult task and one by one the goals came. 

Every girl played a huge role and when the whistle blew Ballycomoyle were clear winners on a score line of 6-8 to 2-7.

Thanks to Caulry for a very sporting match and some great football, to referee Barry Nea, and to all the supporters for all the encouragement.

Congratulations to all the Girls.

Scór Baile Uí Chumaoil! 

Our Senior Scór journey came to an end, unfortunately, on Sunday afternoon last 21/4/24 in The Downs at Leinster Final stage. 

On the day Baile Uí Chumaoil was represented by Cliodhna Daly in the Solo Singing competition. Cliodhna sang beautifully, accompanied by Zara Geraghty on guitar, and she should be very proud of her performance. When the results were announced it was the Dublin singer who got the adjudicators nod in what was a very closely contested competition. 

Our Nuachleas team of Lorna McCormack, Lorraine Ledwith, Alison Keogh, Helen Coyle, Aidan Keogh, Willie Hilliard, Piaras Walsh and Sean Daly gave their best performance to date of their act but were defeated by Carnew, Co Wicklow, who are going for their 3rd All Ireland title in a row. 

Well done to all our competitors who represented the club so well both on Sunday and in the earlier rounds of this year's competition.

Scór Sinsir.

What a fantastic night for our club on Saturday night last 23/3/24.

Bringing home 3 County titles.


Successful night for Ballycomoyle at Westmeath Scór Sinsir Final.

The Westmeath Final of Scór Sinsir 2024 was held in The Downs GAA Centre on Saturday last, March 23rd. Ballycomoyle was very well represented with competitors in Tráth na gCeist/Question Time, Amhránaíocht Aonair/Solo Singing, Bailéad Ghrúpa/Ballad Group, Nuachleas/Novelty Act and Rince Seit/Set Dancing.

The first competition of the evening was the Tráth na gCeist and Ballycomoyle Gaa Club were represented by Seamus MacDermott, Peter McKenna, Dermot McKenna and Piaras Walsh. There were 8 teams in this competition, with 3 qualifying for the individual stage of the quiz. The Ballycomoyle team finished a very respectable 4th behind The Downs, St. Joseph’s and Mullingar Shamrocks, who ran out winners in the end.  

The first Ballycomoyle representatives to take to the stage were our club president Larry Masterson, representing Ballycomoyle GAA club and Cliodhna Daly, representing Ballycomoyle Ladies, in the Amhránaíocht Aonair. There were 7 competitors in total in this category and when the results were announced at the end of the night Cliodhna was announced as the new county champion. She was accompanied by Zara Geraghty on guitar for her performance of Passage West. Well done to Larry, who represented the club with pride in this competition.

Zara and Cliodhna were joined by their siblings Roan Geraghty and Bláthnaid Daly, along with Naomi Fitzpatrick in a bid to retain their Ballad Group title, which the girls won with Aoibhínn Dolan in 2023. They met stiff opposition from Moate All Whites and Ballinagore in this discipline, but the judges gave the nod to the group, representing Ballycomoyle Ladies, and another county title came their way.  

The next discipline was the Nuachleas and there were 5 Acts in this competition. Ballycomoyle GAA club were 4th on stage with their Act “The Real Story of the Children of Lir”. When the results were announced at the end of the night this group were also crowned county winners. The members of the group are Lorna McCormack, Lorraine Ledwith, Helen Coyle, Alison Keogh, Piaras Walsh, Willie Hilliard, Aidan Keogh and Sean Daly.  

The final competition of the night was the Rince Seit and the standard was exceptionally high with three groups taking part, each of which has won county titles in the past. First on stage were The Downs, followed by the Ballycomoyle Dancers with St. Joseph’s finishing the line-up. When the results were announced it was St. Joseph’s who were crowned county champions, but the Ballycomoyle Dancers can be very proud of their performance in, what has to have been, a very close competition. Representing Ballycomoyle were Saoirse Fitzpatrick, Caoimhe McCabe, Leah Brady, Ella Connell, Elisha Gavigan, Elisha Kennedy, Shauna Cribbon and Ciara Smith.  

Congratulations to all those who represented Ballycomoyle so well on Saturday night and special congratulations to our county champions. The county winners go forward to represent Westmeath in the Leinster Semi-Final, which will be held in Birr, Co Offaly, on Sunday April 7th at 3pm. Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh ar fad.

Eight changes at half time didn't stem the flow of elegant passing movement and stout defending resulting in an opening round win for St Michaels.  

A huge Congratulations to all players and team management on a fantastic start to the new season.

Many thanks to all the parents for making sure that all players were there for the early throw in.

A huge thanks to

Club Chairman.


I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Ballycomoyle members, players, supporters and sponsors a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.


I would like to reflect upon 2023 and extend the club’s heart felt sympathy to all those that have lost loved ones during the year in particular, to the Cooney, Fagan and Gallagher families.


Please know that you will be in all our thoughts over the Christmas.


I would like to thank all the club members who gave so willingly of their time in 2023 for the benefit of others. I would like to thank all those involved in team coaching for their great and selfless work in preparing teams for competition and for go-games throughout the year.


The philosophy of voluntary effort, synonymous with the GAA is certainly not lacking in our club. The huge effort put in to the walkathon fund raising events reflects positively on all sections of the club and on the club as a whole.


For those of you thinking about new years resolutions and if you are not already actively involved, please consider offering some help as a coach or trainer and becoming part of one of our coaching teams.


The Ballycomoyle ladies have had great success this year with wins in the Junior B final and the division 2 minor final as well as success in the Feile competition. We are truly blessed with talent and commitment among our ladies footballers.


Our junior men showed tremendous heart in the championship this year. only beaten in extra time in the semifinal by Kilbeggan who went on to win the competition. With a new management team in place for 2024. I know that our men will do us proud again in 2024.


Ballycomoyle also enjoyed great success in GAA Scor with our Ballad group reaching the all Ireland final in Killarney. Well done to all who took part in Scor this year.
