Attendance records were shattered on the day with 46,286 in Croke Park and we were delighted that Garrycaslte LGFA were a part of this history. All of our members enjoyed the fantastic display of football from the best county teams in the country.

All of us at Garrycaslte want to say a massive congratulations to Jennifer Byrne who has been crowned Rose of Tralee 2017

Jenny is a past player with us in Garrycaslte and represented her Ballinahown and Co. Offaly in the Rose of Tralee festival this year. We are all so proud of Jenny and all she has achieved and are proud to have her connected to our fantastic club. She has been a role model on and off the pitch, academically and in every sense to all of our members and community.
