Memory Wall:

Ballycastle GAA's redevelopment of Tom Langan Park remains on course to have the new facilities completed by summer 2022.

To fund this development, they have started a new initiative – the Ballycastle GAA Memory Wall – which will offer all those connected to the club a chance to leave their mark on it. The Memory Wall, which will consist of individual tiles, each with a unique message, will take pride of place inside the newly constructed clubhouse at Tom Langan Park .

Launch of the Memory Wall will take place in Healys on Friday 18th March and everyone is invited to a night of nostalgia and memories.
