Senior Men’s League

Davitts Senior men began their league campaign on Friday night at home to Crossmaglen Rangers II, recovering from a first half deficit, to earn a draw. To read a report on the game please visit our website:  



Senior Ladies

Meanwhile, also on Friday night, our Senior Ladies drew against Down kingpins, Burren in a challenge game.

Getting beat by 11 points at Half-Time, the girls staged a staggering comeback in the second half to draw at the final whistle. Alice Guy excelled in goals in her first match for senior ladies and Laura McKeever stood out, but overall 2nd half was a spirited team performance by all the girls who fought hard to dominate and grind out a well deserved draw.


Meanwhile the ladies fixtures have been released:



Ladies Fundamentals Coaching Course

Ballyhegan hosted a Ladies Fundamentals Coaching Course on Friday 24th March. There were 21 people from across Armagh and also attendees from Fermanagh and Meath. Five of our own ladies completed the course:








On behalf of the club, we wish to thank Kieran McKeever for organising the session, and also the Ballyhegan ladies for supplying the lunch for all who attended. A credit to our club!



Ballyhegan and Kilmore Community Heritage Association

Ballyhegan and Kilmore Community Heritage Association wind up what has been a very successful season of meetings and visits with what promises to be a very interesting finale, in Kilmore Parish Centre, Wednesday 18th April at 8.00 PM.

Canon William Fleming, the much lauded writer on many aspects of Church and Social History, including a carefully researched and beautifully written account of what is referred to locally as Diamond Grange Church is to discuss “Aspects of Grange Oneilland”.

It is hoped that a few copies of Canon Fleming’s work may be available for purchase on the night everyone is welcome and refreshments will be available as usual.

The Annual meeting of the association will follow. Members are reminded that the annual subscription – of £10 (£15 for two members of a household) – is due. New subscribers are very welcome



Club Survey

Surveys should now have been distributed to households around our local community. I’d like to urge everyone to take some time to complete the survey. It will help the committee of Ballyhegan Davitts CLG to plan for the future, gauge community opinion & harness the talent in our local area. Remember it’s your club! These will be collected in the coming weeks also. If you haven’t had a survey delivered or collected – please get in touch.



Child Protection

We have received notification that we will be hosting a child protection course in Ballyhegan on Thursday 19th April.

There maybe still places available, and will be allocated first come first serve.

The Child Protection Certificate lasts for three years, so renewal may be required from those who already have it also. This opportunity should not be missed; it's in our own club! Please get in touch to reserve your place.



Kitchen Refurb

The kitchen has been refurbished and is out of bounds to all members, unless sanctioned by the committee. Anyone needing water should use the taps in both the changing rooms or on the pitch. Again, Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our facilities fit for purpose!



Zumba Dance Class

“It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health.”

Clothing Bank

A clothing bank now resides in the club car park. This is a new initiative to raise cash for our club, so we’d like to urge our members & local community to deposit any unwanted clothes and textiles. The items will then be exported across Europe and Africa. By doing so the club will get a donation for every bag of clothes recycled. Thank-you in advance for your help and support.
