Ballinrobe GAA


    Ballinrobe GAA Club has paid tribute this evening to Liam O'Haire, a former Ballinrobe footballer who passed away yesterday in Crusheen, Co Clare following an illness.

    42-year old Mr O'Haire was a native of Rathkelly, Ballinrobe, and his family have a long association with Ballinrobe GAA Club.

    Liam played at all underage levels for the club, Ballinrobe primary school and Ballinrobe Community School.

    A serving member of An Garda Siochana, Liam is survived by his wife Anna, a son and daughter, his mother Mary sisters, brothers in law and extended family.

    His late father Christy, who died suddenly in 1996, was a former club player and officer.

    He also managed club teams to win a number of county championship titles at under-age and adult levels, and was also a selector on a variety of Mayo teams.

    Liam's sisters Marie and Chanelle are actively involved with Ballinrobe GAA Club, while his nephews are wearing the club colours at U12 and U14 levels.

    In a statement this evening, the Ballinrobe club has extended its sympathy to Liam's family at this sad time.



  • Ballinrobe GAA Club is saddened to announce the sudden death of Aidan Golden, a distinguished wearer of the club’s maroon and yellow jersey. 

    He played with Ballinrobe at all levels, including as a member of their first 15 in the 2000 Mayo Intermediate Football and U21 Championship final wins over Ballaghaderreen and Kilmaine respectively, and the 2004 Mayo Senior League Final victory over Knockmore.

    Aidan, Lakelawns, Ballinrobe, who celebrated his 40th birthday just a few weeks ago, died suddenly after taking ill yesterday during a family holiday in Portugal.

    His death has cast a pall of gloom over Ballinrobe and the entire south Mayo region where Aidan was an intensely popular figure.

    The Ballinrobe GAA Registration Night, scheduled for tomorrow night, has been postponed as a mark of respect.
