Clodagh Butler, club member is conducting research investigating workplace resilience and well-being. We would appreciate any club members or friends of our Facebook page who are in full employment to contact her and get involved.

Gerard Bourke, Club Chairman
Dear Members and Friends, with Mayo taking an early exit from the championship, all eyes turn to club football for the remainder of the summer. Firstly I would like to wish Seamie O’Shea a speedy recovery, his involvement on the field will be missed. I wish our senior team every success as they continue in their quest for a county senior title and we will ensure that they have everything they need to achieve this goal.

The GAA’s official club newsletter for February can be downloaded here. This issue includes an interview with new GAA President, John Hora, who aims to put the club at the heart of his GAA presidency.
At our annual club and community dinner dance on the 13th of January, a special video tribute was played to remember and commemorate our great friend and team-mate, David Gavin. The video contains beautiful and poignant words from his Breaffy GAA and Vancouver ISSC team-mates and many friends.
David is shown as a true warrior on the field in the jersey’s of Breaffy, Mayo, NUIG and his adopted club of Vancouver ISSC who have become dear and close friends with all here in Breaffy.
Special thanks must go to Edwin McGreal, Robert Hennelly and his team at Love Media, contributors Tommy O’Reilly, Colm Kelly and Brian Howley, photographer Michael Donnelly and in particular the Gavin family.
A huge thanks to everyone for supporting the Breaffy GAA Annual Dinner Dance 2018. It was wonderful to celebrate the achievements of our footballers, rounders players, ladies club and our club person of the year, Lorraine Hall.
Over Christmas we hosted the first of what will hopefully become an annual Breaffy GAA St. Stephen’s Day fundraising blitz between senior players past and present. Four teams of 11-a-side battled it out over the course of the day to see who would be crowned champions. All funds raised on the day were in support of the David Gavin Fund.
We remember with immense sadness the passing of two amazing young people – a great loss their families, our club and community.
Breaffy GAA extend sympathies to their families and friends. They will remain forever in our hearts.
Rest in Peace David Gavin and Faye Lavin.
Dear friends of Breaffy GAA,
Hard to believe we are almost at the end of October and another football year has almost past. We thank you all for your support and commitment to Breaffy GAA – and we look forward to doing it all again next year.
