Birney Madigan 1930-2013
St. Senans Bord Na nOg are delighted to host the annual Birney Madigan Parish Tournament. The late Birney Madigan was one of St. Senan’s finest footballing sons. He was just 17 years of age when St. Senan’s G.A.A. Club was founded in the Spring of 1947, in a parish of a golden age where Gaelic football was about to commence and the “Bowen” was going to play a huge role. Bernie in fact became the dominant player of the 1950’s era with his exploits now legendary.
The Bowen had it all – great footballing skills, jinking feet, quick hands and a football brain ahead of his time. He could mix with the best, the toughest and the hardest. He possessed an amazing leap and could field much taller opponents at his ease. In any given match he would score spectacular points from play and from placed ball opportunities. Players who played with him always marvelled at his amazing long kick which was deadly accurate. The St. Senan’s team of the 1950’s won may trophies, but winning the County Junior Title in 1953 was often regarded as their best and Bowen Madigan captained his club in their 0-6 to 0-4 victory over Pallasgreen on that day.
It is a fitting tribute to Birney, that the Parish tournament brings together our young stars from all corners of the Parish for a feast of football which Birney himself would have thoroughly enjoyed. We hope that all who participate enjoy the tournament and take fond memories of lining out for their local community.

St Senasn GAA would like to extend our greatest thanks to Vincent Kelly and all the team in his Costcutters shop for their kind sponsorship of the Feile 2018 team.
#Vincent and the team will ensure that each player gets a zip top tracksuit bottoms and gear bag for their trip. As you can appreciate this is a massive cost and are delighted and lucky to have the Kelly family on board. This is one of many various sponsorships they have given the club down through the years.
On behalf of the club, the players and the parents thank you and remember to shop local as these and many other local business are what make this parish and community a great place to live. We hope to have a little presentation in the coming weeks with photos of the Feile team and any sponsor willing to come on board and help out with this event.
