Ballybay Pearse Brothers Gaelic Football Club is a Gaelic football club based in Ballybay, County Monaghan, Ireland.[1][2]


The club was founded as Ballybay GFC in 1906.

The club is named after the brothers Patrick Pearse and Willie Pearse, executed after the 1916 Easter Rising.[3] Their grounds, Pearse Park, opened in April 1951, the 35th anniversary of the Rising, and were commonly used for inter-county fixtures.[4] A "golden age" followed, Ballybay winning six Monaghan Senior Football Championships in the years 1954-1969.

Ballybay formerly had a hurling team, which won the Monaghan Senior Hurling Championship in 1976.[5]

Ballybay have only won two county titles in recent decades, in 1987 and 2012.
