Ballyboden St Enda's - Eoghan Culligan

Please click here for Eoghans funeral arrangements

" It is with great regret and sadness that we inform you that Ballyboden St Enda's member Eoghan Culligan was one of the six people who tragically lost their lives in Berkeley, California earlier today ( 16th June 2015).

Eoghan has been a member of Ballyboden St Enda's since childhood and was part of the Minor A Championship team that won the Minor Division 1 league and were beaten by Castleknock GAA in the county final of 2011. He continued to play football with both the Intermediate and Junior teams.  Eoghan was very popular with his team mates and this tragic news is keenly felt by all members of our Club, but especially by those players and mentors who knew him well. 

We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his parents Gerry & Marie and to his brothers Stephen & Andrew and to all the extended Culligan family.

May we take this opportunity of extending our sympathies to all the families of Eoghan's friends who also lost their lives in this terrible tragedy and to wish those who are injured eventual recovery to full health.

Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam uasal dílis

Boden kit arrives in Kenya! - Sarah Lambert

I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that donated club jerseys, academy kits, footballs, hurls, money etc.The experience I had was unbelievable. The children in Kenya are the happiest, most grateful children that I've ever come across. Seeing first hand where they live and the conditions they live in. The walk through the slums, with open sewage about and children playing around it would break your heart. Their lives are so different to ours. We visited primary and secondary schools. The children were so delighted to wear the Ballyboden jerseys. They were so happy, obedient and very eager to learn. We did lots of different activities such as music, arts & crafts and sports and they really enjoyed playing hurling and football !! The interaction was fantastic ! Thank you all so much again, it was greatly appreciated.Sarah Lambert
