Community Games 2019
It was like a festival of medals coming back to Ballyheigue over the last 2
weekend of competitions in Community Games. The gymnastics was the first of
the events to start with Ella Casey and Max Fitzgerald both proudly
bringing home 2, 3rd place Bronze medals .They did brilliant as the level
of competition was very high. Ellie Walsh also took to the floor and did
excellent but was unlucky not to be placed in the medal position.
Last Sunday was the turn of our 4 Draughts Team under the watchful eye of
coach Terence Dineen. All teams came home with medals with our U10
receiving 2nd place silver medals, U12 3rd place Bronze medals, U14 3rd
place Bronze medals and yet again our U16 team taking home 1st place Gold
medals. What a fantastic result for all the teams . Good luck to the U16
