Brian Dillons 150 year Commemoration

Brian Dillons Electricity Boxes
Over the past number of years, the club has sought out the services of Kevin O’Brien to add a splash of colour to the community. Kevin’s work can be seen from Ballyvolane, up to the Tank Field and down as far as St. Luke’s Cross.

Men behind the Wire
A picture which summed up the strangeness of last year’s sporting endeavors, as clubmen Eddie Twohig and Mick White have to resort to watching Brian Dillons from ladders perched up against the wall at Ballinlough.
Cúl Camps 2020
Brian Dillons were one of only two clubs in the city to host a Cúl Camp last Summer. With over a hundred kids in
attendance, the Tank Field was awash with sporting activity – hurling, football and rounders as well
as ‘Fun Games’ incorporating beanbags, hula-hoops and tug-of-war. Cork goalkeeper Anthony Nash
even paid a visit to the Tank, where he dished out some valuable tips, signed hurleys and jerseys and
was bombarded with questions from his eager devotees.
Darkness into Light 2020
While GAA activity ground to a halt last Summer, club members remained active, as evidenced when the community turned out in its droves and donned club colours to take part in the ‘Darkness into Light’ 5k run. Over €4,000 was raised for Pieta House.
