The best team of footballers around here was in New Quay and the best team of hurlers was in Ballinafad. New Quay came the second best in the All Ireland Championship once. There was eleven Fahys in the team of fifteen. A man named Jim Fahy was the captain.
The Turlough team played Kilfenora and Carron in Bellharbour and bet them. Their captain was a man named Patrick Burke. He now lives near Galway. The people around here were great for throwing weights also. Two brothers named Maley were the best in Turlough and Bellharbour.
