Ballyroan ICA resumes activities after the summer break this Tues Sept 9. All members asked to attend.


‘Kids & Koffee’ takes place every Friday 10am-12pm in the Ballyroan Community Hall. We have loads of toys for kids of all ages and plenty of space for everyone to have fun & interact. €3 per household. All parents, childminders and pre-school children/babies welcome. Its a community-run group and a great place to meet and make friends over a cup of tea or beaker of juice! Call Kyra 0860651485, or just come along on Friday.


Ballyroan Abbey have recently purchased socks and togs for all Juvenile team members from U14’s to U8’s.
