RIP Brian WalshThe Club are very saddened to hear of the Death of local man Brian Walsh. Brian was a brilliant supporter of the Club for many years and involved in every event the club runs. Our thoughts go out to his wife Trish and family at this sad time. We’ll miss him pulling into the pitch every week for a chat and to see how the teams are doing!

What a Day for Ballyboughal GFC & St PetersWe have so many people to thank over the next few days but we’re gonna savour this day first. The U.15 team and mgmt were brilliant today, they managed to secure a brilliant Win over New York to kick-start the day, but lost to a very strong Austin Stacks. They then went on to the Quarter Finals and beat Maynooth GFC. After gathering their thoughts and their gear they headed for Abbottstown where they were destined to play old rivals Judes in the Semis but fell short unfortunatelyA brilliant performance from all 6 teams involved today and we hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did!!
