Ladies Teams

There has always been a great tradition of  Gaelic Football in Ballylanders (men’s),  and in the year 2000 the  Ladies  Gaelic Football Club  was set  up.  In the early years the club concentrated on developing the under age players. Teams were entered in the County Championship at under 12, under 14, under 16 and minor.  The work carried out in those early days began to bear fruit, when  in 2007 the first  Under 16 County Title was won by the club.  Also in that same year the Under 14 Team qualified to represent Limerick in Feile Peil.  To achieve this honour, the under 14 team had to win a special competition involving all the top teams in the county. This was a remarkable achievement  for the club, in such a short space of time.

That year Feile was held in Leitrim and it was a wonderful experience for all players , officials and parents to have been involved.  The entire panel, mentors and supporters spent the weekend in Leitrim, playing three games in their group, winning two of them.  Several of these players are currently on the present adult team.

During the early years  the adult team played in  the junior  championship with little success.  In 2009  Ballylanders reached their first County Junior Final, but were narrowly beaten by Oola.  However  in 2010  they were back in the final again, and this time they had a big win over Old Mill.  As a result of this win, Ballylanders  would be taking part in the Intermediate Championship for the first time in 2011. 
The team proved they were very capable of performing well at this level by beating  Monagea , Oola and Monaleen  to reach the Intermediate county final in 2011.   Mungret were  their opponents is the final, but  proved too experienced and were victorious on the day. In 2012  Ballylanders  once more reached the final but this time they were beaten by Monagea.
