Damian Patterson & Kenny Hearne have both recently decided to step down from managing the Junior A Ladies.  After their last league game Damian & Kenny announced to the girls that he was stepping down.Baltinglass GAA Club would like to thank both men for their commitment to the group over the last number of years.Damian took over in 2002 when morale was very low in the squad.  They hadnt won a championship match over 2 years.  He started with a win over Valleymount.  In 2004 he managed the ladies to win junior B League. In 2006 he enjoyed a great year by winning the Junior B Championship & Junior A league double.Kenny joined as coach in 2007.  The team contested 2 futher Junior A finals but unfortunately luck wasnt on their side.  A major regret for Damian & Kenny.  Anyone interested as managing or coaching the Ladies contact Paul Garrigan.
