Glynn Barntown GAA


In all probability the first G.A.A meeting to be held in the parish of Glynn was at Muchwood on Sunday 6th December 1885. The first contest took place on Sunday 21st February 1886 when a team (21 players) travelled to Murrintown to play the local team in a friendly game. Comment was made on the total disregard of referees and umpires: “nearly every player on the field made an umpire of himself”. Meetings of the club were held in 1887 at Ballyeaton. In 1888 the Glynn Barntown Club was not recognised and some of the players lined out with a new team from Park. In April 1907 the Wexford Independants travelled to Carrigmannon on the invitation of the newly formed Glynn hurling club.
