Health and Wellbeing


On Sunday afternoon the Health and Wellbeing committee welcomed club members and the wider community to our club grounds where we remembered Ashling Murphy RIP. We did so by having a minute silence and everyone placed a candle in her memory.  We had beautiful music from Roanna O’Sullivan and Deirdre Millane.

Ladies News 

A great day out for the Ballymac Ladies Football team who called into O’ Brennan NS, Clogher NS, Flemby NS and Scoil Nuachabháil. They brought along their Junior C County Championship & North Kerry U16 trophies. Thanks to all the local children for welcoming them. We are looking forward to seeing the future talent coming up through the ranks!
