Ballymacelligott GAA Club has decided to suspend all training for all age groups for both boys and girls for 2020.

The pitches will now close for all members of our club and public.
The Club takes this difficult step in the interest of the health and safety of our players, parents, mentors, coaches and all our families and friendsWe take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped us play a huge amount of football in a short few summer months.
So many people worked very hard to make this possible.

Everyone, every team, every player, every coach, every parent, every supporter, every club officer flew our colours high and with pride in an extraordinary year.

We look forward to 2021 and to getting back on the playing fields once again and flying our colours even higher.
