Underage Trip To Croke Park

A huge thanks to players, parents and coaches for making today's trip to Croke Park a day to remember for our young Juvenilles.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Croke Park, with a trip to Mc Donalds at the end to finish off the day. Hopefully some of our young players might get the chance to grace Croke Park in years to come.

Ballinagh Juveniles are delighted to now be in the Tesco Token Community. When shopping in Tesco Cavan you will receive a blue token. You can then simply place the token into the collection box on the way out that has Ballinagh GAA on it. The tokens will work towards raising some much needed funds for our juvenile teams. There are currently boxes in the upper and lower Tesco in Cavan town. Any support is greatly appreciated

Cian McDermott

Ballinagh would like to extend our congratulations all the way to Canada to our own Cian McDermott who managed St Vincent’s to Toronto Senior Championship glory in the past week. Cian, a son of Robbie and Siobhan, played football with Ballinagh up until his early to mid-20’s winning Intermediate and Ulster Intermediates championships at midfield with Ballinagh before moving to Australia and then settling in Canada. It’s great to see Cian bring the winning mentality with him.
