Our Club received national media attention in May 2014 when broadcasting legend Marty Morrissey visited the Club and interviewed Players and coaches. Marty Morrissey was extremely impressed with the success of the club and the standard. After recording an interview with Club Chairperson Joe Barrett and Club Secretary Tomás Cameron in the Museum of Country Life as part of the Feile na Tuaithe event, he was so impressed with the story of the club he accepted an invitation from to visit the clubs facilities and attended the Camogie Training session that evening where he spoke with players and coaches.
The Club participated in Feile na Tuaithe on the weekend on May 24th & 25th at the Museum of Country Life by promoting the games of Camogie, Hurling and Camán Abú and encouraging children and adults to become involved in our club
Earlier in the year the club was featured in a News item on Nuacht TG4 when players gave a demonstration on Hurling Skills at the launch of the “Hurling Balls” Exhibition in the Museum of Country Life.
This National recognition of Ballyvary Hurling & Camogie Club is a testament to all of those who had the vision and the drive to create the facilities that we have, develop the games and who continue to support the club.
