Crumlin GAA are looking to recruit new players & volunteers. We have a range of hurling, football & camogie teams for young girls & boys right up to adult level.
Please tell all your friends and help us find the next Dublin superstar! 🙂
If you or your children would like to get involved with Crumlin GAA, please contact our Games Promotion Officer Jason Perry at 085 838 3359.
We are a community driven club. We organise many fun & rewarding fundraising activities throughout the year. Our team members also take part in fun activities off the field and also raise funds for charities through runs, coffee mornings or triathlons . It is with this community spirit that many parents of nursery & juvenile players and the players become friends.

The club also runs a weekly lotto, monthly draws, summer camps, an annual Dublin wide hurling competition for U15 boys and much more!
At this time of year we always like to thank all our juvenile players for bringing joy, fun & laughter to Crumlin GAA every week. You play your hearts out for the club and we are so proud to have you in our small club. We are pretty sure you are all on the nice list this year so enjoy what Santa brings you…but only if you go to be on time and do what your parents ask!
Happy Christmas Eve…you all might nod off to sleep to this later!
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN! On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONNER and BLITZEN! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my hand, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath; He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!
Guess who dropped by Crumlin GAA yesterday morning?
Santa spent lots of time with the children and it was heart warming to see all the smiles and wonder on their faces.
Santa told us afterwards that as always it was his pleasure to visit all the nursery kids in Crumlin GAA. He said he has being keeping an eye on their progress and can see how amazing and committed they all are. He was also pleased to report that none of the children are on the naughty list this year…yet!
58 children attended yesterday morning’s session and the pure joy and happiness on their faces was amazing to see especially given the difficult times they have experienced over the last 2 years. The youth coaches gave a lovely gesture by giving the nursery kids a guard of honour! The park was filled with Christmas cheer on a very cold morning.
The kids were treated to yummy gift boxes made by CakesnCandy, a great local business selling custom made cakes and confectionery. Check them out!
The nursery organisers would like to say a huge thank you to all the coaches that turn up every Tuesday and Saturday and provide a fun space for the children to learn and play. Thank you so much you should be very proud of yourselves.
A maximum of 8 people can be accommodated per table.
One person of each party must be a Crumlin GAA club member.
In order to comply with current government guidlines all people aged over 18 years wishing to attend must be able to show evidence of COVID-19 vaccination or immunity following recovery within the last 6 months.
Huge congratulations to Ruth & Janice on completing their 19.71 mile 50th birthday walk last Saturday. They said it was a great day and everyone that joined in were delighted to do so. Ruth and Jan said “they were really chuffed with the response and being able to reach the finish line”.
They have raised an amazing €1,450 so far on GoFundMe with a further €515 being received as cash donations.
That’s €1,965 altogether!
Thank you all so much! It so great to be part of such a friendly and caring community.
The GoFundMe page will be left open until the end of the month if you would still like to mark Ruth & Jan’s birthday achievement and also help out Crumlin GAA.
Born in 1971 these two ladies became friends at the age of 4, ah would you look, aren’t they just adorable? 🙂
They started playing Camogie together at 11 years of age and played for Crumlin for 30 years into their early 40’s. They have also represented Dublin along with coaching & managing teams together. These two ladies have forged an unbreakable bond and continue to be great friends today all through a love and passion for Gaelic games. Both are still involved with the club and their children now play football, hurling & Camogie for Crumlin GAA.
They want to celebrate their 50th birthdays together as friends and would like to raise some much needed funds for Crumlin GAA by walking 19.71 miles to mark the year they were born.
We are trying to get 50 people to join in and walk alongside them. It is an open invite to all in Crumlin GAA whether they wish to walk some or all of the distance. It will be a fun, no pressure walk, so why not set yourself a personal goal and help raise some funds!
We hope you will join them along the way, say hello and see what a friendly local club we are.
If you can’t make it along on the day and you would like to donate whatever you can you can do so on our GoFundMe page.
The ladies will start off from Crumlin GAA Clubhouse on Saturday the 20th of November 2021 at 6am. We hope to have a route finalised and will post further details shortly. If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Have you guessed who these two ladies are yet?
We’d forgive you if you thought they were Jennifer Aniston & Claudia Schiffer but they are in fact…
…our two superstars Janice Fitzpatrick and Ruth Gavigan. Happy birthday ladies and thank you both for EVERYTHING!
Huge congratulations to our U15’s boys footballers who are now Division 8 Feile Champions! Our second piece of silverware this weekend!
This fantastic bunch of lads who hail from both Crumlin & Robert Emmets overcame Clontarf in St. Anne’s Park this morning.
Well done lads, you are a credit to yourselves, your families and your club. Enjoy your success.
In other weekend matches unfortunately, our Mens Junior Footballers lost out on a Championship Final place to Geraldine P Moran being beaten by a single point earlier this morning in Pearse Park. Hard luck lads, you will rise again. Our Minor Camogie team lost their first Division 3 Championship match away to Faughs/Celtic, the final scoreline being Faughs/Celtic 4-10 to Crumlin’s 0-10.
