Our minors take on Churchill in the next round of the County Minor League. Due to the recent poor weather this fixture is subject to change. Please check the club website etc. for updates.

There is a prize of 2,000 Euros to be given to charity up for grabs. Fionnán’s chosen benfactors are Ballymac GAA Club & Ballymac Community Alert Group – both organisations in which he is very much involved. It would be great if some support from Ballymac could be at the Brandon on the night.
