BALLYSTEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
Book launch of Askeaton-Ballysteen GAA Story 1884-2020
A huge thank you to everyone who played their part at the launch of our special commemorative book, Askeaton Ballysteen GAA Story 1994-2020 on Sunday. From all who spoke on the day, special guest Matt O’Callaghan, all the volunteers who made sure it ran off smoothly and to everyone who came, it will live long as a special day in our already storied history.
Thanks to everyone who turned up on the day to support. And a big thank you to Paul Anglim who has provided everyone with the most unique collectors item.
The 448 page hardback is the culmination of nearly a decade of research Paul. The book which has over 350 images and 560 references is produced to the highest quality. The book will be retailing at €20, with all profits going to Askeaton-Ballysteen-Kilcornan Bord na nÓg.
To get yours, get in touch with a club member before they sell out.
Our Senior Footballers are back in championship action this Sunday as they take on defending county champions Adare in the Limerick Senior Football Championship quarter-final in the Bog Garden on Sunday at 1pm.
This will be a ticketed event.

Service to the Elderly
Ballysteen GAA along with Askeaton GAA & Askeaton/Ballysteen/Kilcornan Bord na nÓg GAA wish to offer our services to the eldery and the most vulnerable in our community during this current time and throughout the weeks ahead.
All three clubs are coming together to give back to our community that has supported us throughout good times and bad. We will be offering to help anyone who requires shopping, prescriptions, fuel etc to be collected on their behalf and delivered to their doorstep.
We will support local businesses to help keep our local community going. Listed below are our coordinators numbers. You can ring or text these numbers and we will organise assistance thereafter. Best hygiene practices will be used by our volunteers during the delivery of this service. Thanks to everyone who is volunteering as part of this. Every little helps in the sustainment and sense of community amongst ourselves. Please remember to share this information to people who are not on Social Media so that they know this service is available.
