Well done to our Junior Boys who won the Junior C Championship by beating Castlerea in the final on Friday 8th of April.

It was a hard fought match on a wet and winday day in COE, Ballyhaunis. After letting in a couple of easy goals in the first half the boys led by a single point, 1-5 to 2-1. Things improved in the second half as Glenamaddy started to take control. However, an injury to a Castlerea player meant the match was held up for nearly an hour. With a few minutes left after this restart, there were a few nail biting moments but Glenamaddy held out to win the silerware. A delighted captain, Gerard Comer accepted the cup on behalf of the team.

Garbally, Ballinasloe  2-5     Glenamaddy CS   1-13

Our Junior team had a good win over Garbally College in their first game on Tuesday18th. The lads had recieved a walkover in the first round over Gort so this was a good test away from home on a windy, wet day in Ballinasloe. We played against the wind in the first half and went in 3 points down (1-5 to 1-2) at halftime. Garbally scored their second goal straight from the restart but that proved to be thier final score as Glenamaddy pushed on and kept adding to their points tally. Good performances on the day came from MacDara Geraghty, Mark Dolan, Michael Heneghan and Nathan Feeney Dolan.

Quarter Final

Glenamaddy CS Mohill

Semi Final

Glenamaddy CS Ballinrobe CS

It turned out to be another disapointing year for this group of players eventually loosing out to Ballinrobe in the semi final. Having performed well in the start of the league section, they came unstuck in the last league game against neighbours and eventual winners, Castlerea. This was a frustrating lost as the team had been on top for most of the game but failed to finish the game out and gave away some soft scores to allow Castlerea away with the win.

Thankfully this didn't stop the team going through to the knock out stages. They played Mohill in the quarter final in Ballaghaderreen. This proved to be a good performance after the set back of the previous game. The team put up a good score and had some very good individual performances.

Ballinrobe CS were their next opponents in the semi final which was played in Tuam Stadium. This was a closely contested match. Glenamaddy started very slowly and were 6 points down early on but once they got the first point on the board, they rallied and got back to within a point at half time. This continued in the second half and they were 3 points up with only a minute left. However, the dreaded goal came and sent the tie into extra time. It was a sickening blow to our lads who had fought very hard to get back into the game.

Extra time proved a step too far as they conceded another goal that they couldn't recover from. This was the second year that this team has lost at semi final stage. Hopefully, it will galvanise they for the future and not allow it to happen again.



The schools Junior team only entered in the Galway County competition in the year 2011/2012. This resulted in a successful year for the team with them winning out the competition at the expense of neighbours Dunmore CS in the final.

Glenamaddy CS  4-11      Dunmore CS  4-2

This was an entertaining game played in Tuam Stadium. Although the match was played at the end of a long school year, it didn't show too much with the two teams registering high scores and plenty of action to be seen at both goal mouths. It was Glenamaddy that led at half time on a scoreline of 2-8 to 2-1. Glenamaddy were after played against a stiff breeze in this half so came out confident that could turn over their neighbours in the second half. This proved to be the case in the finish but not without a strong fight from the Dunmore side.
