On December 29th, Breaffy’s senior men’s and women’s teams took to the field in Ballyheane to play two challenge games against ISSC Vancouver. Over 40 Vancouver players and management travelled from all corners of Ireland and from Canada for the games to pay tribute to our great mutual friend and team-mate, David Gavin.
Once again on St. Stephen’s Day last, Breaffy GAA hosted our second annual fundraising blitz between senior players past and present. Four teams competed to dethrone last year’s champions, “The Oldies”, to determine who would earn this year’s bragging rights.
This month’s edition contains the news that Connacht GAA have been announced amongst the first round of successful applicants for Department of Rural and Community Development Minister Michael Ring’s €1 billion Rural Regeneration and Development Fund.
The Breaffy GAA Bord na nÓg presentation night took place on Sunday, December 2nd. Senior players James Minogue and Robbie Fadden were on hand to present our young stars with their awards on the night.
For this year’s Black Friday sales event, O’Neills will be giving 20% off all merchandise from the 23rd to the 26th of November.
This is a great opportunity to get your Breaffy GAA gear just in time for Christmas!

Anything at all. Depending on time of the game it could range from a full on dinner to a rasher sandwich en-route in the car with a cup of tea half drank and half spilt.
Breaffy GAA wish our team the very best in the Mayo SFC County Final on Saturday.
At this time we also wish to thank our sponsors for their continued and generous support over the years.
Congratulations to our U12 boys who are the Connacht U12 Skills Champions for 2018!
Well done to all of their coaches too.
