The Community organisations in Ballinasloe have rallied around Ballinasloe Town A.f.C. in magnificent fashion in the Clubs bid to be named the F.a.I. national club of the year (best club in Ireland).Local organisations ranging from residents associations, local primary and secondary schools,charitable groups, youth groups, training workshops, community employment schemes, B.A.C.D. Community Games, Credit Union and Tidy Towns all contributed in a positive fashion to the clubs application by highlighting the contribution that the Club make to the Ballinasloe Community.
The community involvement/integration is one of the criteria on which the national adjudicators will assess the applications. Other criteria consists of club development of facilities, youth structure and policy, involvement with F.A.I. programmes in terms of coaching courses, child protection courses and player development, success on the field of play and promoting the sport of association football (soccer).
The Club are certainly to the forefront with regard to satisfying the relevant criteria in that they can successfully boast of a 1.75 million euros development which is currently 97% debt free and consists of 2 grass playing pitches (1 floodlit), 2 floodlit astro turf pitches, state of the art newly constructed clubhouse, original clubhouse which facilitates the astro turf pitches, spectator stand and machinery/storage building. The club also have a licence agreement regarding the use of a grass pitch and floodlit training area with the H.S.E. at St. Brigids Grounds
As regards to the clubs youth structure , the club caters for under 8s right up along the line to under 18s. Annual street leagues, weekly youth soccer academy and the hugely successful annual youth soccer camp are also an integral part of the clubs youth activities. The Clubs managers/coaches have successfully completed F.A.I. coaching courses, child protection courses and Garda vetting this season and this is an ongoing process for the club. The aforementioned also forms part of the club application.
Former club players who progressed up through the club youth structure have this season featured on Irish International teams namely Heather Payne, (ladies senior team), Jordan Carr (irish under 16 team) and Conor Lyang (under 18 Irish schools team). Conor Lyang and Eoin Mccormack (last years hero for Ballinasloe in the victorious connacht cup final) have both signed for Galway United and are starring for the League of Ireland club.
Also featuring on the clubs detailed application to the F.a.I. was the significant achievement of recently hosting the under 16 International between Ireland and Hungary and indeed the recent official opening of the new state of the art clubhouse.
Success on the field of play this season concluded the clubs application. This success included being the current holders of the Connacht Junior Cup, winners of the over 35 league, winners of the under 12/13 combi league and runners up in the combi cup and winners of the A.D.S.L. futsal tournament. The clubs senior team are in contention to win the Premier League with 1 game left to play and are guaranteed at the very least the runners up spot.
Club Development Co- Ordinator Johnny Walsh paid tribute on behalf of the club to all Community Organisations who supported the clubs application and to all involved with the club for all their excellent work in this regard.

From Edward Conway's own perspective;
Let me be brief I am Edward Conway, from Ballinasloe, Co. Galway, on my bucket list of visits to see in the world was to see the mighty 7th wonder of the world the “Angkor Wat” in Cambodia.
Angkor Wat, in its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled. Its mightiness and magnificence bespeak a pomp and a luxury surpassing that of a Pharaoh or a Shah Jahan, an impressiveness greater than that of the Pyramids, an artistic distinctiveness as fine as that of the Taj Mahal. Angkor Wat is located about six kilometers (four miles) north of Siem Reap, south of Angkor Thom. Angkor Wat was built in the first half of the 12th century (113-5BC). Estimated construction time of the temple is 30 years by King Suryavarman II, dedicated to Vishnu (Hindu), replica of Angkor Thom style of art.
Angkor Wat, the largest monument of the Angkor group and the best preserved, is an architectural masterpiece. Its perfection in composition, balance, proportions, relief's and sculpture make it one of the finest monuments in the world.
Wat is the Khmer name for temple (the French spelling is "vat "), which was probably added to "Angkor "when it became a Theravada Buddhist monument, most likely in the sixteenth century. After 1432 when the capital moved to Phnom Penh, Angkor Wat was cared for by Buddhist monks.
It is generally accepted that Angkor Wat was a funerary temple for King Suryavarman II and oriented to the west to conform to the symbolism between the setting sun and death. Angkor Wat
Whilst touring this country witnessing its beauty and also the kindness in the people after so much turmoil there from the butchery and mass deaths, I came across a gentleman doing things on the ground and that I building water pumps I asked more questions of him, and his name is Kim, so I will let him talk more now on the subject;
“I (Kim) have been working as tour guide for decades, and meet many people around the world. But as I told Edward Conway, he was the first Irish man that I met and the most open person I had met ever, always smiling and wanting to know different topics.
When I was young, I could not go to school because of fighting. From the age of 5 to 10 years old, I just took care of the buffaloes and cows.... I used to drink dirty water with cows and buffaloes also... So I want to help the poor people with these clean water wells.
I was always dreaming about helping the other people. I studied in the field of accounting and finance. Between 1999 to 2005, the university was only in Phnom Penh. So I went to Phnom Penh and worked and saved for university. I graduated and worked as an accountant few a years, I was not happy with this job, so I quit, then I studied in tourism, since 2003 I then became a tour guide. I love this job as I meet many people from around the world, exchanged knowledge and cultures.... Most of my clients are very nice and tolerant. After a period of exchange of information some of my clients always asked me how they could help the Cambodian people ?
As the world knows from 1970 to 1998, there was a civil war, killing fields all over Cambodia, civil war, many people were killed and houses and lives destroyed. So now our people are very poor but we have open hearts. We have a lot of NGOs but most of funds get spent on administration
Then I have got an idea is to help my people by building the wells for clean water. When our family is drinking clean water then our family will be healthy, we don't spend a lot of money on our health. With this water, people could use it for watering their vegetable patch in their garden too. If we buy them breads, they eat and are full for one day, but if we build them the well they can use it for many years...
So since 2005, as a tour guide I have received many funds for building the water wells.
My project cost for one well is just €220, it includes 10 years maintenance. We provide this to the poorest families personally, but other families who live nearby by can also use this.
As you know most of Cambodian are very family orientated.
I am waiting to hear good news from you and when I get fund I will build it as soon as possible.
Best regards and hank you for any help

Minister for Justice & Equality Charlie Flanagan visits Ballinasloe Garda Station to view €1.6 Million Works - HOPKINS
Minister for Justice & Equality, Charlie Flanagan T.D. visited Ballinasloe Garda Station on Monday May 14th to see at first hand the €1.6 million refurbishment and extension works which are ongoing at the station at the invitation of Senator Maura Hopkins.
Senator Hopkins stated, “It is very positive to see that works to upgrade the Ballinasloe Garda Station are now well underway. This project involves the demolition of the existing cell block and the construction of a new cell block, a new prisoner processing area, the refurbishment of the public office, upgrade of the heating system and the incorporation of the adjacent building to increase the capacity for the station.”
“The OPW advise that the completion date for the project will be October this year. This modern and fit for purpose facility when completed will help Gardai based in Ballinasloe to carry out their work with maximum efficiency on behalf of the public".
"There are 57 Gardaí in the Ballinasloe District, which includes Ballinasloe, Ahascragh, Ballygar, Mountbellew, Kiltormer, Kilconnell, Moylough and Creggs. Given this large geographical area, it is imperative that more gardai would be assigned to the district and this was discussed with Minister Flanagan during his visit. There has been a significant investment in vehicles in recent years and at present the district has 7 vehicles.
Minister Flanagan said, “I have been aware of the need for investment in Ballinasloe Garda station for many years since my time as party Justice Spokesperson a number of years ago. I was very pleased that my colleague the former Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald T.D. provided funding for these works in late 2015.”
“Senator Maura Hopkins has raised the need for the commencement of these works on several occasions over the past year since my appointment as Minister for Justice and Equality, it is positive that the project is now well underway.”
Minister Flanagan also stated "I want to compliment the gardai in this district for the excellent work that they do on a daily basis. I want to particularly note their involvement in Operation Thor which is focussed on tackling rural and organised crime. It is also excellent that members of the Gardai are working closely with local communities on crime prevention measures."
Senator Hopkins concluded, “I will continue to work closely with Minister Flanagan to ensure that further Gardaí are allocated to the Ballinasloe district to serve the needs of people locally."
