Saint Saviours GAA Club is a football and hurling club founded in 1980 in Ballybeg, Waterford, in the Republic of Ireland.

Facilities[edit]

Its facilities include a clubhouse, dressing rooms, gym, and floodlit training area. An astroturf training area is expected in the near future. Construction is almost complete on a wall behind one of the goals, with ball-stoppers to be installed behind each goal soon.

Teams[edit]

This year the club will be represented at all levels in hurling and football for the first time in many years. It shows the progress the club has been making recently. Teams will be fielded for Intermediate, Junior, U-21, and Minor hurling (including all under-age teams) and Senior, Junior, U-21 and Minor football (including all under-age teams also). The club is in its 20th year of Senior football and will be represented at Minor "A" grade for the first time in years.

Honours[edit]

The club has won almost every honour in the county. The early years were very successful, with wins in many under-age "A" grades. While not as successful during the '90s, the club won the County Senior Football title for the first time ever. More recent victories include U-16 county titles in both hurling and football, including numerous other under-age titles.

2007[edit]

2007 has got off to a good start. The U-21's won the Eastern Football final after beating Roanmore in the semi and Kilmacthomas in the final. The Minor footballers won their first two games in the 'A' Championship and remain unbeaten. The Senior footballers won their first championship game against Mahon Gaels but were unfortunate to lose their second game against Clashmore. The Intermediate hurlers are unbeaten after beating Kill, De la Salle and a draw with Ballygunner. This means they should automatically be entered into the quarter final.
