Ballymore’s Intermediate team is competing in the Leinster Leader Senior League Division 1 Group A.
Ballymore have got off to a poor start in Division 1 of the league by losing the first four matches. The home team have been unlucky not to have won a couple of tight matches and they now face an uphill battle to reach the play offs. They must now win the remaining three matches to have any chance of qualifying.
