Ballylooby-Castlegrace GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association club located in the village areas of Ballylooby and Castlegrace, in County Tipperary, Ireland. It fields Gaelic football and hurling teams in the South division of Tipperary GAA. The pitch is located 1.3km outside Ballylooby.
Ballylooby GAA club was formed in 1941, after a change in GAA rules meant that Ballylooby hurlers were no longer eligible to play with the neighbouring parish's team, the Rehill Unknowns (formed in 1934). Ballylooby won the South Tipperary Junior Hurling Championship in 1945. After of long period of decline, the club again won the Junior championship in 1972. The present club name was adopted in the mid-1970s. In 1999, the team entered and won the South "B" Junior Hurling Championship, and in 2003 it secured the South Junior Hurling Championship.
