The Football and Camogie Club are hosting a Gala Dinner in the Hillgrove Hotel on Saturday 10 March 2018 to celebrate Gaelic Games and Culture in the area. Tickets are £75 and can be purchased from Nelius or Paula or *** Payment plan also available ***. Keep up to date via the Facebook Page ‘Ballymacnab Gala Event’. 


Tickets will be on sale in the Clubrooms on Friday 23 February 730-9pm

A Chara,


1967 and 1968 saw the reformation of the football and camogie clubs in Ballymacnab. There has always been a strong Gaelic Games and Irish Culture association in this area, stretching back to the 1900s. Thankfully this tradition has continued to this present day. Down through the years many Gaels, like you and your family, have played a significant role through the playing of our national games, coaching, administrating at committee level, supporting our teams and through generous financial contributions, have all help establish the Clubs and premises that we are proud to have inherited today.


To celebrate the role Gaelic Games and Irish Culture have had in the area, we are holding a Gala Ball in the Hillgrove Hotel, Monaghan on Saturday 10 March 2018. Tickets are £75 each and the event is a Black Tie affair. Tickets are available from Nelius Boyle (07732378823), Paula McGuigan (07776411319) or online An Auction and spot prizes will be held on the night, including a prize of flights and accommodation for two to New York for one lucky attendee. The night promises to be a ‘night to remember’ and will help raise funds for the two Clubs. Whilst we encourage all to attend, Under 16s must be accompanied by their parent or guardian.

If you have and further queries, please don’t hesitate in contacting us.


Yours faithfully,






Mickey McGivern                                           Paula McGuigan

Seamus McKenna - RIP

posted 22 Oct 2017, 14:46 by ballymacnab armagh

It was with sadness that all at the Club learnt of the death, on 8 October 2017, of our former player Seamus McKenna. Seamus played for the Club during the 1950s and 1960s. He was part of a ‘Golden Generation’ of Ballymacnab footballers who made their mark after the great 1946 side, which his brother Patrick was a member of. Seamus played at midfield for most of his playing days forming a formidable partnership at midfield with John Fegan (RIP). Occasionally Seamus also played on the half forward line. He was renowned for his great athleticism in an era when strength and stamina was a must. Seamus played in a number of Mid Division Championship and Trodden Cup Finals for the Club but with little success. As one of his former team mates remarked “We could always reach the final.” He did however have some success in that he was a member of a Ballymacnab side who won a Senior 7-a-side Tournament in Scotstown in 1955, a remarkable achievement in that the Club was only playing in Junior competitions at that time. Around 1962 the fortunes of the Round Towers dipped due to retirements and emigration so much so that there was no team for the next 5 years. On its reformation in 1967 the team pushed for promotions from Division IV and Seamus came out of retirement to help secure that promotion. After his playing days Seamus continued to support the Club and also was heavily involved with St.Brenda’s Camogie Club of which his 3 daughters were all prominent players. Three of his grandsons, Stephen and Simon King and Ethan McBirney are current players. Many of Seamus’ former team mates and the current and past committee members formed a ‘Guard of Honour’ at his funeral. During the offertory at his funeral Mass his grandson and current Senior player Stephen King carried the Ballymacnab No.8 jersey in Seamus’ memory. We offer our deepest sympathy to his wife Renee, son Harry, daughters Ann, Petrina and Roisin and entire family circle. Go raibh suaimhneas sioraí ar a anam dílis.
