St. Joseph’s GAA Club, Ballycran (casually shortened to Ballycran) was formed in 1939 with the assistance of a local School Master, Frank Mc Kenna, a native of Co Monaghan.
The Club colours are Black and Amber and their ground/facilities, Mc Kenna Park, are located at Mc Kenna Road in Rubane just off the Kircubbin – Cloughey Road.
The club preference is for Hurling/Camogie. It is a vibrant organisation within the Parish fielding successful teams at both senior and juvenile levels.
Traditionally, Hurling, rather than Gaelic Football, is the preferred Sport on the Ards Peninsula and for that reason Ballycran like our friends in Ballygalget and Portaferry play at Senior level in the Antrim league. A warm welcome is extended to any young person who would like to try out this exciting sport.
