After a 16 year wait Ballyhaunis Community School having finally won a competitive Senior Schools Final. A game which could be best described as a game of 2 halves saw Ballyhaunis lead by 14 points at half time but Glenamaddy proved why they were in the final with a very spirited second half. In perfect condition in Bekan the last 10 minutes proved crucial. With a 1 point lead Ballyhaunis CS had to call on all reserves to close out a game which they dominated. Final score 2:14 to 3:7. Huge congratulations must go to the players and manager Mr Woolley for their huge commitment throughout the season.
Congratulations to our Senior Boys Hurling team on winning the Mayo Hurling Final today. The match was played in St Colmans home pitch in excellent conditions. Colmans proved a very resilient team with the half time score of 1:03 to 1:02. The second half saw Ballyhaunis settle, and finished comfortable winners. Our next hurling game is against Ballygar in the Connaught Quarter Final on Monday the 23rd of January in the COE. Today’s match was good preparation so well done to all. A special thanks to coach Nicholas Freyne.

During the past few weeks our amazing students have raised an incredible €1,295 for the local St. Vincent de Paul and MSPCA charities, two very worthwhile causes. The monies were raised by the BCS Folk Choir, led by Ms Glavey, whose Carol Singing performances delighted the crowds around Ballyhaunis in recent weeks. Mrs Macken & Mrs Murphy’s TY students Candy Cane sales and Mrs O’Reilly and her 5B LCVP class, through their Jumper Day initiative, combined to give a total donation of €1,295.
