The members, players and committee of Ballerin GAC are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of our clubmate and present Senior player Shaun Mullan. Shaun was a very well loved member of our Senior team who enjoyed training and playing football with his friends and teammates. Shaun loved a tough physical battle during a game and this side of his personality shone through to the end as he tried his best to battle the injuries he suffered in the tragic accident on Thursday morning.
Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with Shaun’s family and his wife Sinead. This will undoubtedly be a very difficult time for his family, friends and our wider Club family, we will now do our best as a Club and Community to help each other through this tragic, sorrowful time and keep the memory of Shaun strong in our hearts.
Finally we would like to extend our Thanks to all those who have offered their condolences and support during this time.
Due to the tragic accident this week involving our senior player Shaun Mullan, there will be no club events or participation until further notice. This includes Scor, Weekly Bingo and the Annual Club Presentation. Our thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends. The Club mass tomorrow (Sunday 18th November) morning will go ahead at 10am.
