Parnell Park looked a picture on Monday afternoon, October 26. Groundsman Noel Brady’s front lawn had got the Gillette close shave.

The friendly programme crew were inside the gate. Business was going to be brisk on this day of days – the Dublin Senior Football Championship semi-final between Kilmacud Crokes and St Jude’s was on.

The TG4 trucks had long arrived. The Dublin Junior 2 Football Championship final was the game that saw the curtain rising. And it would extend all the way to extra-time.

Gaelic for Mothers and Others

Gaelic for Mothers and Others is coming to Ranelagh Gaels!

This is a fun, non-competitive form of women’s football and is open to all women of 21-years-or-older who aren’t currently registered as a player with an LGFA club.

No experience of Gaelic football is required. The main idea is to have fun while getting some exercise, learning new skills and making new friends.

Sessions start in UCD opposite the Sports Centre near the Clonskeagh entrance on Thursday, September 20 at 7.30. Sessions last for one hour and the initiative will run for six weeks initially. Read the rest »

Juvenile Academy Back In Action

Ranelagh Gaels Juvenile Academy is back for another season, throwing-in on Saturday, September 8 at 10.30 in Donnybrook Stadium.

All children between the ages of four and seven years old are welcome, regardless of whether or not they have played Gaelic Games before. If you can’t make it down this week pop along any subsequent Saturday – don’t been shy!

Our academy offers Gaelic Games training in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.

Just ensure that your child is wearing appropriate clothes (runners/football boots and tracksuit/tee-shirt and shorts) and bring water.

Also, mouth guards are compulsory for all children – they can be purchased cheaply at most pharmacies – and it is the responsibility of each parent or guardian to ensure their child is wearing their mouth guard.

Details of registration will appear here on our website shortly. We are always looking for new mentors and coaches to get involved with our academy so if you are interested, just get in touch!

Table Quiz a Huge Success!

Ranelagh Gaels’ pre-All-Ireland table quiz was a huge success – a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped make such a successful evening.

Prizes were generously sponsored by TriBeCa, The Panel, Leech’s Pharmacy, O’Connell’s Rathgar Pharmacy, The Panel and Old Bawn Physiotherapy Clinic.

Smyth’s as always were generous hosts and we had a full house taking part in the quiz. Go raibh maith agat to anyone who took part and in particular to every who helped organise the night and ensure it ran smoothly.

Our big raffle prizes were two All-Irealnd tickets and a pair of VIP weekend passes for Electric Picnic, which were both snapped up.

See you all next time!
