An Fíor Gael

Situated in the Grounds of Pairc Colmcille, Carrickmore, An Fíor Gael is dedicated to those who had the vision, courage and national pride to found Naomh Colmcille in 1932, those who have continued to share their goals and those who shall fulfil this honourable goal in the future.

On the surrounding walls, memorial stones have been set in place dedicated to the memory of players and committee members who have passed away while still serving on the committee or playing at any level for the club.

Those honoured are:

  • Kevin McCartan
  • Diarmuid Walsh
  • Vincent Gormley
  • Jartlath Kerr
  • Joseph McKernan
  • Martin Rafferty
