The club plays its home games at Flanagan Park, which is named after Mick Flanagan who won two All-Ireland senior football championship medals with Mayo in 1950 and 1951.

Mick was a native of Castlebar but practised as a solicitor on Main Street in Ballinrobe for many years. He was just 32 years of age when he passed away on January 25, 1961.

Flanagan Park was officially opened by GAA President, Hugh Byrne, in May, 1963.

  • Visited the west in August with three best friends. One was looking for mother’s ancestors. Her name was Kathleen Flanagan Paiva. Are a lot of Flanagan’s from Mayo?

    Indeed there are Gloria!
