Ranelagh Gaels AGM 2019

Ranelagh Gaels’ Annual General Meeting took place in Beechwood Hall on Thursday November 21.

There was a great turnout of members from all sectors of the club, there was healthy discussion and we adopted our new club constitution, which introduced term limits for club officers. This is a major move for Ranelagh Gaels, making us best in class in this area and ensuring a regular flow of fresh minds and bodies onto the executive.

Thanks to everyone who came along and took part.

We also elected our new committee for 2020 – thanks to everyone who volunteered in 2019 and look forward to looking forward to working with everyone in the New Year. Read the rest »

Family Open Day

The Ranelagh Gaels Juvenile Academy returned for another season, on September 7 in Donnybrook Stadium.

Huge numbers of new joiners were in attendance and the buzz around Donnybrook was electric.

Our Family Open Day is taking place on Saturday 21 September, from 12:00 – 16:00 in Cathal Brugha Barracks GAA Pitch. The day is open to both members AND non-members. We hope that this is going to be a community event and we welcome everyone that wishes to attend.

We will also be holding a fundraising raffle on the day with some amazing prizes donated to us from the good business folk around the Ranelagh, Rathmines and Dublin 6 area. We are extremely grateful to all those that  supported us with prizes. We have a great little parish!!

NO ACADEMY on 21 September due to Family Day. We will return on 28 September.

Ranelagh Gaels – Dublin Junior D Champions!

Ranelagh Gaels beat Garristown by 2-9 to 1-10 to claim the Dublin Junior D Championship title at Lawless Park in Swords on Friday, August 30.

It was another brilliant performance by Shane Minihane’s fantastic team, who did themselves and their club proud to claim Ranelagh’s second ever women’s championship trophy nine years on from the first.

It has been an amazing 12 months for the club at adult level, following on from the lads’ 2018 Junior 2 Championship final win and our underage teams and academy continue to go from strength to strength. Read the rest »

Women’s Championship Final

Ranelagh Gaels’ women’s team are through to another championship final, taking on Garristown in the Junior D decider at Fingallians on Friday, August 30 – throw-in 7.30.

After getting out of their group they saw off the tough challenge of Naomh Mearnog in Portmarnock in the semi-final.

We are hoping to see a big crowd of Gaels supporting the team and it’s a great opportunity for our younger players to see them in action and chat to them after the match. See you all there!
