Under 16 Hurlers:   Pride of place this week goes to our Under 16 Hurlers who captured North Tipperary B Final in Dolla last Saturday morning.   The opposition on this occasion was our near neighbours, Portroe and at half time, the teams were level I-3 to 0-6.   Ballina upped their game in the second half scoring 2 more goals they went on to win 3-10 to 1-9. This was a great victory and due essentially to a great team effort.    Congratulations to John Gleeson and his selectors who had this team in excellent shape   They will play Emly next weekend in County Semi-Final.
