Ballyroan GAA was a gaelic football club in Ballyroan, County Laois, in Ireland.

Founded in 1887, the club colours were sky blue and navy having originally been royal blue with a dominant white V on the front. The club won eight Laois Senior Football Championship titles, the most recent of which was in 1992.

In 2006, a number of Ballyroan players were part of the Ballyroan Gaels squad that won the Laois Senior Football Championship. Ballyroan Gaels was an amalgamation of the two neighbouring clubs, Abbeyleix GAA and Ballyroan.

In 2007 the two clubs joined together to form the new Ballyroan Abbey GAA club. The existing Abbeyleix GAA club now plays hurling, only.
