Revival of Ballina Town League 26th December 2018   02/01/2019

Famed for producing footballers of great in North Mayo, the Ballina Town League prominent throughout the decades right up into the '90's sadly disintegrated and has been out of commission for the past twenty years, to the loss of our current crop of talented young players. 

However, down to the hard work of current Senior Stephenites' Club man and player and Mayo GAA player Ger Cafferkey and his team including Denis Coen, plans kicked off early in 2018, to revive the town league, inviting older Stephenite players and current minor, junior and senior players to participate and take part in the Revival of the town league on St Stephens Day, a day always celebrating the return of supporters and member's who no longer live in town, and acts as a reunion for Stephenite supporters over the Christmas period.


The boundaries were drawn and town divided into four quarters, including

The South,

The Quay,

The Road and

The Town.

And while the Quay won out in the end, the real winners were those who joined us on the day.

With over 120 pictures taken on the day by Bord na nOg PRO Mrs Marion Mattimoe, pop over to the Club Facebook page and enjoy the pictures taken on the day, featuring young and old club supporters.
