Ballymac GAA Club AGM 2020
The Ballymacelligott GAA Club AGM will take place physically on Sunday January 3rd at 2pm once Government Guidelines allow, venue to be confirmed.
Should it prove impossible to hold our AGM physically at that time it will be held online the following Sunday 10th January again at 2pm

Running an AGM in 2020/early 2021
Croke Park made changes to the rule to take note of COVID 19 and the restrictions’ around same. The following three rule changes came in to effect in relation to Running an AGM in 2020/early 2021


Eligibility to stand for office has changed from 31st March to 31st October


Quorum {for a physical AGM}:

20% of members is sufficient for a quorum

Or 20 members for a club with membership greater than 100


If there are no other nominations for a position, an outgoing officer can remain in their position even if they have served the full time for which they were elected {for us 3 years}.
The general advice for this year is that this is not the time to consider motions that radically change the direction or substance of the club.

Update on Scór
Regrettably it has been decided  to postpone the recommencement of Scór Sinsear until the start of February 2021 at the earliest. This is due to COVID19 and the restrictions that are in place or may be in place in the future months. No decision on the running of any future competitions at Scór na nÓg or Scór Sinsir will be made before February 2021. Keep safe and sound.

The programme focuses on the promotion of mental wellbeing, and has been adapted from a face-to-face programme into a series of short online videos for the public at this time. It’s free to access anytime so why not try one of the videos and go from there. Further details can be found at the following link:

Ballymacelligott Volunteer Group up and running again

The Ballymacelligott Volunteer Group made up of about 50 members is ready and willing to help elderly, those alone and the vulnerable in the weeks ahead. They will deliver foodstuffs, medicine, fuel etc to anyone in the area who needs the support and help. We work in conjunction with Ballymacelligott GAA, Ballymacelligott Community Alert, Local Link Kerry, Pat McCarthy and family at The Halfway Shop and many great people in our community.

All that need be done is to message or ring this number and The Volunteer Group will do the rest.

No one should feel alone or isolated or vulnerable in a great company like Ballymac. We stand tall and stand together over the coming weeks. We have overcome many trials in the past and will do so again.
