GAA LOGO Longford Crest

On July 1st, 2000, Ballymahon GAA became the first club in county Longford to have its own supporters club. Called "The Boots and Togs Brigade" after the book "With Boots and Togs", which details the history of our club, this club is designed to provide a means of social interaction between the club and the community, whilest raising some funds for all teams involved in the club.

The name originates from the old means of announcing the times for a match, when a poster was left in McKnights window telling player to be at the field in Drynan with boots and togs at the required time.

Membership to the Brigade is an annual cost of 100, which entitles the member to

  • Personal "Boots and Togs Brigade" membership card
  • Automatic inclusion in the weekly draw
  • Free admission to all home games
  • Free entry to All-Ireland weekend draw
  • Inclusion on the mailing list containing details of matches and social events which may include post match receptions, golf outing, race meetings etc.

    It is intended that the club will give a link to past players and all supporters living at home or away from home a means of keeping in touch with the club and to help the club in its future devlopments.

    If you wish to become a member (by cash, cheque, standing order or installments), contact Michael Cooney, Treasurer Boots and Togs Brigade, Main Street, Ballymahon.

    All details that are made available to me will also be placed in this page of the website and also in the club notes.
