Fr. Sheehy’s


Fr. Sheehy's GAA Park, Clogheen, TipperaryFr. Sheehy’s GAA Club

Fr. Sheehy’s GAA Club takes its players in both hurling and football codes from the parish of Clogheen and Burncourt. The club was formed in 1972, combining what had formerly been Burncourt Football Club and Clogheen Hurling Club, both of which were formed in the 1930’s. The club is named after Fr. Nicholas Sheehy who was Parish priest of the Clogheen and Burncourt area (Shanrahan) at the time of his martyrdom in 1766.

The club is based at a wonderful facility, Fr. Sheehy’s GAA Park, located just outside Clogheen (road signposted at Mulcahy’s Supermarket in the centre of town). If you use the Loc8 Code system you can find the park at Q26-87-36A (if you don’t then look at the map at the bottom of the page).

The club officially unveiled its new pitch (there are two very high quality pitches at the facility) and dressing room/gym complex in May 2009.
