GROUP B
Qualified for the quarters
Ballygar and Loughrea

This group came to an exciting conclusion last weekend with the meeting of Ballygar and Turloughmore in the last group fixture. It was a must win game for both sides and it was the North Galway side who won on a scoreline of Ballygar 1-10, Turloughmore 1-9.
That result jumps Ballygar to the top, while Michael Breathnach lose out for the second place to Loughrea due to the result between them in the previous group match in which Loughrea beat them. It will be disapointment for the Connemara side who won their final two group matches against tough oposition from Liam Mellows and Turloughmore.
This group never failed to entertain and credit to all sides who gave us one of the most competitive groups of the year.
