The ‘LOTTO’ run jointly by Ballycallan Parish and the GBC GAA Club over the past 25 years has been an enormous success. However, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic the Lotto, in it’s original format had to be suspended to ensure the safety of all those involved.
Graigue Ballycallan GAA Club and St Brigid’s Camogie Club are in the process of a massive development at the club grounds in Kilmanagh and Ballycallan Parish have kindly agreed that the proceeds of the new Lotto will be given to GBC GAA Club until June 2023 to fund this development.
The new Lotto format will be an online version with many ways to pay and play.

On Saturday 21st November 2020 we lit a candle in our club grounds to remember the 14 innocent people who went to Croke Park on 21st November 1920 and never came home. They were killed when British Forces opened fire 10 minutes into a challenge match between Tipperary and Dublin. Hundreds of GAA Club across the country took part in remembering this sad occasion 100 years ago.

MINOR CAMOIGE 2020——— we remained in ROINN A and we had expectations for the class of Minor 2020. The challenge to be competitive was made more difficult for all due to COVID 19. However, we had a bunch of girls who had shown great character over the past few years (U16 Roinn A Champions 2018) so we had expectations of ourselves. One of keys to success was staying injury free so losing Kate McCluskey was a cruel blow to this group. This injury on top of others leading up to the Semi Final v Dicksboro obviously became too much on the day and we failed to meet our expectations. That was a pity but this group have a huge amount to look forward to as they develop their camogie careers. Read more
Graigue Ballycallan 3-14 Galmoy/Windgap 0-19
Our Under 19’s got their League/Championship campaign off to a winning start on Sunday afternoon 4th October in Kilmanagh beating a strong Galmoy/Windgap team by 4 points.
The visitors got off to the better start going 6 points to 2 ahead in the first ten minutes. GBC got their first goal then through good work from a busy Jeff Neary letting the ball in to OisÍn Egan and he finished very well. Minutes later GBC got a lucky goal when a long free from Stephen Keoghan went straight into the net. Another goal for GBC from Patrick Foley left the score at half time 3-6 to 9 points. Read more
The Graigue Ballycallan U15 team recently lined out against James Stephens in a much anticipated County Final. Both teams were the teams that showed the best form throughout the year and when they met in the group stages earlier in the year the town team prevailed by the narrowest of margins after probably the best game of the season.
Very little has separated these teams over the last number of years with the locals beating them by 2 points in a Féile Semi Final last year. Read more
