We are the G.A.A. club of the Ballymacward-Gurteen parish in East Galway. The club was formed in 1966 when Ballymacward and Gurteen Junior Hurling clubs amalgamated. There has always been a strong tradition of hurling in the area, with the two preceding clubs in existence since the foundation of the G.A.A. Indeed, one of the earliest records of organised hurling in the area dates from 1882. Pádraig Pearses now field hurling teams from U6 to Senior level. Hurlers from the club have represented Galway at all grades. The Club began fielding football teams in 2013 and the adult team competes at Junior level, with several underage football teams.
