Ballinakill GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association hurling and gaelic football club in Ballinakill, County Laois, Ireland.

The club colours are maroon and white and the club grounds are in Ballinakill village near the border with County Kilkenny.

In 1888, the Ballinakill club won the first ever Laois Senior Football Championship but these days the club is more renowned as a hurling heartland.

In 2000 and 2001, the Laois Minor Football Championship was won by St John Bosco Gaels, an area team with players from the Ballinakill and Crettyard clubs.

2007 saw the club victorious in the Laois Junior Football Championship with a win over St Josephs in the final.
