Congratulations to the St. Brigid's U-14 girls who became County Champions last weekend by defeating Kilmovee in the Final.

Community Hall

Ballycastle Community Hall AGM took place on Monday night and all directors resigned from their posts. No new members were present to take their place. Emergency meeting is now being called for Monday 11th July. If no new members are willing to take over on the 11th July,  unfortunately Ballycastle Community Hall will close on Tuesday 12th July. We hope to see you on the night where hopefully a new committee can be formed to prevent closure.


Céide Fields

The all new Céide Fields Centre has reopened to the public.

Open daily from 10.00a.m. – 6.00p.m. (last admission 5.15p.m.)



The death occurred recently of Catherine O'Malley, Sussex, UK and formerly of Seaview Place, Ballycastle.

Sympathy is extended to her sons John & Tom, daughter Karen, grandchildren,

great-grandchildren, daughter-in-law Breda, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

May she rest in peace.



It is hoped to resume the art classes & computer course for both beginners and advanced in Ballycastle Community Hall shortly. We are fortunate to have Emma Donoghue as a tutor for our art classes and Nicola Blendell for the computer course. If interested please contact Sean 0861584432 or

Kathleen 0860667192.
