In the past year, Ballina suffered the tragic loss of a well known and respected life, Gda. Anthony Golden. He was an avid hurler all through his youth along with his brothers & neighbours. Anthony also played football, but hurling for Ballina James Stephens was a strong focus for Anthony above all.
For 2016, the club are proud to announce the inaugural year of the Gda. Anthony Golden Memorial Cup for National Schools in the Ballina area of north Mayo.
The club are proud to have the support of the family of Gda. Anthony Golden for the new tournament and they know that it will have a lasting impression on the community of Ballina and the wider environs, just as the personality of their son did.
Schools that are invited to participate are:
- Culleens NS
- Behy NS
- Bonnicolon NS
- Breaffy NS
- Ardagh NS
- Quay NS
- Rehins NS
- Cooneal NS
The memorial cup will be run for 2 age groupings – 3rd/4th class & 5th/6th class. Teams will be comprised of boys and girls.
