The Martin Flannery Memorial Cup got underway this week, with the Ballinrobe Under 10 Boys playing in a winter Pella tournament under lights, on the Astro Turf pitch, in the Green.
The tournament sees 40 U0 boys playing in a league format and there was nothing between the four teams who played this week, all trying to emulate the winning team from last year (see team members above with members of the Flannery family).
This is the third year of the Martin Flannery Memorial Cup, an event which remembers Martin, a lifetime volunteer and coach at all levels for Ballinrobe GAA, a recipient of the Ballinrobe GAA Hall of Fame award, and a former winner of the Club Person of the Year accolade.
Indeed, the Flannery family are still heavily involved in Ballinrobe GAA and Martin would be very proud to see his grandson Daniel playing in this tournament, alongside his peers.
Throw in for Round 2 of the tournament is next Wednesday 11th of October at 6.15pm. Please come along and support the boys while also remembering a great man who gave so much to help develop our club over the years.
