Dublin Final

There was a local link to last Sunday’s Dublin county final with Mark McNamee playing in goals for Ballyboden. Mark is a son of club and county legend Frank McNamee. Unfortunately, the result didn’t go Ballyboden’s way but a bright future certainly lies ahead for Mark.

Danny McGee Tribute

In memory of Danny McGee, money raised from last year’s SingForMe Festival in Cavan was for The Kevin Bell Trust. A portion of the money raised was put towards a plaque to remember Danny, not just for the night of the festival but for years to come. The quote on the plaque is some of Danny’s words from his SmileForMe post. The club was deeply honoured to be presented with the plaque on Saturday last and it is now proudly on the wall in Monaduff. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.


The club extends sympathy to the family and friends of Mary McKiernan (née Martin, formerly Ballinamuck) who passed away recently. Solas na bhFlaitheas uirthi.

Senior Championship

On Sunday afternoon last we played Longford Slashers in the senior championship quarter final. We were defeated on a score-line of 1-9 to 1-7. Having been defeated by Slashers by 14 points in the first round, the team performed admirably. We were unlucky not to emerge victorious after Pauric Gill was fouled for a penalty and Martin Cassidy converted in the closing stages but the team as a whole gave it everything and the club is very proud of all involved. Thank you once again to Mike and Martin Mulleady for sponsoring lovely jackets for the team and management. This is greatly appreciated by all
