The semi-finals and finals will be played this Friday night. In Junior, the North face the East and the West will take on the South for a place in the final.

National League Predictions Competition
Allianz, the sponsors of the hurling and football leagues, are running a competition to predict the results of all the matches played every week. The idea is simple, you just register on and make your predictions. The closer your predictions to the actual results, the more points you earn. The prize is €500 for individuals and €2,500 for their club. There is also a monthly prize of €250 per month for the top scorer in that month. So if you're good at predictions or you just want to have a go for fun, log onto the website and stake your claim.

Club DVD's
There are currently two Ballinagore GAA DVD's available to purchase from the club. The first is 'The Road To Croker' which includes the 'best bits' of the county finals from 1986 to 2007 along with footage of the very successful 'Road To Croker' fundraiser last June. The second is the Commemorative DVD of the 1986 Silver Anniversary celebrations and includes both the Junior and Junior B championship finals, plus the Cup final of that year. The DVD's are €10 each or both for €15. Contact Seán Delaney on 086 3315686 or Paul Seery on 086 8318124.
