G.A.A. News

Congratulations to the Ballycastle boys who won the North Mayo Eddie Cuffe U-12 Tournament in Knockmore recently.


Our Junior team's Championship run came to an end at the semi final stage against Achill in an epic but heartbreaking encounter in Bangor. We thank them for their commitment all year and how they represented the club and parish with pride and distinction.

We would like to say a thank you and wish Martin Farrell all the best as he has informed us that after three years at the helm he has decided to stand down as team manager.
