Ballycumber GAA Notes

Ballycumber GAA History Group

The information collected in Gussie's Coffee Shop on Monday will form the basis of the History Groups next project. Thank you to all who made photos, documents, stories and memories available to us. It is important that the rich history of Moorock, Bellair, Boher, Castlearmstrong and Leamonaghan and surrounding areas is recorded. We still require more information on the Traveller's Rest on the route to Clonmacnoise at Killaghantubber, the schools in the area and memories of the Clara to Banagher train.

Christmas Gift

A copy of A Walker's Guide to Ballycumber Past would be an ideal Christmas Gift for family and friends who are living away from Ballycumber. The Book is priced at 10 euro and is available from Maureen in Ballycumber Post Office, Peter Flynn in Flynn’s of Grogan and from History Group members.


Congratulations to Leo Guinan [Boher] and Grace Bloomer on their engagement.


The numbers drawn this week were 8,10,21,31. No jackpot or match three winners. Five lucky dip winners. Next week’s draw will be held in Stewarts on Monday night at 10 o’clock for a jackpot of €3,400.
