Ball Wall opening – This Saturday, 16th May, will be another red letter day for St. Enda’s as the club officially opens its magnificent new Ball Wall and 4G training area at Healy Park.

Club members and players and their parents are invited to Saturday’s official opening ceremony and blessing at 11am where they can see our young footballers, hurlers and camogs enjoy another session of fun activities. A number of Club Omagh events throughout 2014 including the Black and White Fight Night and our Golf Classic also contributed significantly to funding the development.
