A reminder that the club has offered to help collect the shopping/groceries/medication for the elderly and vulnerable in our parish. If you need this assistance or know of someone who does, please contact our secretary Lorraine Corrigan on 0864017301. Our team of volunteers are ready to help.

Old Photos

With a lack of action on the playing fields we are trying to collect as many old football related photographs to share them with our supporters. If you have any Gaels related pictures, be they action shots, team photos, trips away, old trophies/medals etc. please scan them and email to pauricgill(at) or direct message to the Gaels Facebook page
