Pitches[edit]

Bellaghy's main pitch, Páirc Seán de Brún, is named after their former club chairman Seán Brown who was attacked and abducted by a Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF) gang on the evening of 12 May 1997 as he locked the main gate of the GAA grounds on the Ballyscullion Road. Less than an hour later the body of the father-of-six was found lying beside his burnt-out car just off the Moneynick Road near Randalstown, County Antrim. He had been shot six times.[1][2] On 19 January 2004 the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland published a report that was highly critical of the police investigation into Brown's killing.[3]

The club also have two full-sized pitches at Drumanee, just outside the village.
