Barna GAA celebrates 50 years in existence in 2015

November 8, 2018

Barna GAA Club was founded in 1965 and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. To mark this milestone, the Club Executive Committee is currently working on producing a special 50th anniversary publication which will be available later in the year. Our aim is to document some of the history of the club and its development over the years covering juvenile, seniors and ladies sections.


So far, we have received some wonderful photographs of past teams and copies of newspaper articles of various club successes but we need more and appeal to your help in this regard.


If you have, or know someone who has, any old photographs of teams, past chairmen, founding members and people who made a significant contribution to the club then we want to hear from you. In particular we are light on material from the early years of the club (1960s- 1970s).


We will arrange for any photos to be scanned and returned to you so if you have any information, photos or ideas for inclusion, please make contact with any of the following on the sub-committee:


Tommy Lenihan (087) 6392481

Dara Bradley (087) 2673249

Ger Butler (087) 2524602

Betty Kilbane (086) 1599169


August 31 is the final date for receipt of material/photos etc to be considered for inclusion in the publication so we would appreciate all support from within the club.
