Subscriptions are now due for the 2017 year for anyone paying annually.  If you wish to join our scheme this covers your membership for the year.  If you require further information please contact any committee member or email for an information pack or download from our website:

Club Shop
Our Club Shop will be open on Friday from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

We would encourage all our members who are actively involved in our club to complete the Access NI Vetting Form.

Club Wear
As our season is underway for most of our teams it is important that our players represent our club with pride.  We ask that every player comes ready for each match with the correct gear:
Galbally Jersey (U8/10’s only), Galbally White Crested Shorts, Galbally Blue Club Socks, Gloves (if required), appropriate outerwear.  These are available to purchase in our club shop on Friday nights (between 7.30pm & 8.30pm) and during Senior Men matches.

Pitch Maintenance
We are undergoing substantial maintenance on our pitches at the moment.  We have closed Pairc na nOg (Juvenile Pitch) until further notice.

Safety Notice
Can we please ask that everyone respect safety measures that are in place around Pearse Park?  Please do not remove the bollards that are in place beside the turnstiles.  These are only to be removed for emergencies or by committee / coaches to access the grounds.  Due to the high volume of traffic using our grounds we ask all users of our pitches and walking track to use all car parks available and not to park & block gate ways & bollards.  This is for the safety of all our members.
