On a bitterly cold night in Carrigaline our senior hurling team defeated Carrigaline C.S. to win the Cork Colleges Senior C hurling championship on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1-12. A well balanced BCS team went in at the break five points down but with the aid of the breeze in the s
econd half they finished strongly to take a well deserved win. There were great performances all over the pitch but Cloughduv’s Stephen O’Donoghue and Ballincollig’s Tadhg O’Connell led the line brilliantly with 1-3 and 2-4 respectively.
BALLINCOLLIG CS (starting 15): Evan Cunningham (Inniscarra); Jack Hurley (Valley Rovers), Josh Cotter (Ballincollig), Ryan O’Neill (Ballincollig); Sean Ahern (Inniscarra), Jack O’Sullivan (do), Seamus Lordan (Éire Óg); Colin O’Leary (Inniscarra), Stephen Lenihan (do); Evan Lucey (Gleann na Laoi), Mark Kelleher (Éire Óg), Dara Dorgan (Ballincollig); Tadhg O’Connell (Ballincollig), Stephen O’Donoghue (Cloughduv), Sean Quinlivan (Inniscarra).
Our Junior camogie team beat Carrigtwohill today in the semi-final to qualify for the Munster final on Saturday. BCS went in at the break two points up but a tremendous performance in the second half saw them emerge victorious on a scoreline of 10-8 to 3-6. The great work being done in the school by Ms. Stack and Ms. Hooley is certainly paying dividends. The Munster Final takes place this Saturday, 11th January, with the time and venue to be confirmed.
Ballincollig Community School were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor Councillor John Sheehan to our school recently. This was a historic event as it was the first time we have welcomed the Lord Mayor since the expansion of the city boundaries in January.
