Ballinroad (Irish: Baile an Rodaigh, meaning "The Town of the Road") is a village approximately 3 km from Dungarvan, County Waterford on the south coast of Ireland. Ballinroad grew rapidly during the Celtic tiger era and is now one of Dungarvan's main dormitory areas.[1]

Saint Lawrence's Catholic Church, c.1835, is located at Ballinroad Crossroads.[2]

Sport[edit]

Dungarvan golf club is based in Knocknagranagh, Ballinroad.[citation needed]

Ballinroad Football Club has been part of the community since 1971, with under-age and junior teams competing in the local Waterford league.

Fergal Fraher is the club's longest serving player, who has spent 43 years playing for its Division 3 side, receiving a record 256 yellow cards and 94 red cards, while also scoring 1 goal. There are plans in progress to erect a statue in his honour at the club grounds.
