Ballinamore Seán O'Heslin's GAA Club are one of the first members of the 20x20 Club Charter with over a quarter of their registered membership female.

The ladies club was founded in 2003. In their first year, they fielded two underage teams and an adult junior division team. They have since doubled in size and currently have 6 teams across various competitions.

The adult team first entered the Junior B competition and after winning the county championship in 2007 were promoted to Junior A.

Ballinamore Seán O'Heslin's then went on to win the Junior A championship in 2010 and were promoted to the Intermediate division.

More success followed at the higher level, winning Intermediate twice, in 2014 and again in 2017.  Following each of those championship wins, the club was promoted to the Senior level.

On both occasions, the team went up as an amalgamated club 'Oughteragh Gaels.' This is a combined team of Ballinamore Sean O'Heslin's and Aughnasheelin GAA.

This season, they are a Senior ladies team, once again playing under the title 'Sean O'Heslin's.'

As one of the first 20x20 Member Clubs to sign a Charter, Ballinamore Seán O’Heslin’s GAA Club in Co. Leitrim won €1,000 of Under Armour kit kindly offered in support of 20x20 by JACC Sports.

Jonathan Courtenay MD JACC Sports Ireland said: “As an Irish company, JACC Sports are committed to supporting all sporting codes in Ireland. The importance of sport in everyone’s lives has been further highlighted and underlined during the current Covid-19 pandemic and we look forward to continuing our support of 20x20 when the shutters come up for all women’s sports and we hope to help inspire more female athletes to follow their sporting passions.”
