Birney Madigan Tournament | 2020

We are sooo excited to announce: THE BIRNEY MADIGAN PARISH CHALLENGE
Unfortunately due to COVID19 we cannot have a football tournament or the fittest family fundraiser this year.

We are hoping to raise vital funds as a parish for the newly acquired land adjacent to our current grounds, while creating a little competition between the 4 areas SHANAGOLDEN, FOYNES, SHANID, AND BARRIGONE.


It’s simple the Area that runs/walks the most KM’S wins the Birney Madigan CUP.

Thursday 6th August at 6pm to Sunday 9th at 9pm.

GoFundMe Donation Page – CLUB Ground Development Works

Any person born and bred of all ages Child/Adult in the parish can compete…this also includes any person living away from home but can still clock up mileage for your area.

We will have lots more information in the coming days. ….
Dust off those walking shoes every step will count!!!!
