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. Read more
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.
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. Read more
