Darren sprints home


Full album on our Facebook page here.

Pearse Park belonged to one man today and that was Crumlin legend Darren Hodgins. 

Darren completed his unfathomable 147km fundraising run today in aid of Crumlin GAA Club.

Darren arrived back in Pearse Park in such good form and speed you’d be forgiven for thinking he only just ran from his house around the corner! An amusing story was shared that Darren challenged some of the U16 Camogie girl support runners to a sprint challenge in Tallaght and beat them all! 

Darren has set an amazing example to all of us that whatever you set your mind to you can achieve and has also proven to be an amazing role model for all our juveniles to look up to. 

Thank you Darren. 

Darren expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped him achieve his goal.

All donations for Darren’s run will go directly towards to the promotion of Gaelic games to children in the Crumlin community. 

Any donation no matter how small makes a huge difference to Crumlin GAA, a local community driven GAA club. 

The GoFundMe link will remain open in case you still wish to donate. Donate here

We would also like to thank every single person that came to the park this morning to show their support for Darren and Crumlin. Special thanks to all the volunteers who helped setup the bunting, signs and refreshments station & Alan Davis for the additional photography. 

We would also like to thank Garden Party Hire for providing us with the beautiful gazebo, bar tables and stools. 

Your Community. Your Club. Your Crumlin.

Crumlin Super Sunday!


Sunday 25th July is set to be a cracker in Pearse Park.

Club legend Darren Hodgins is due to arrive at 10am to complete his epic 147km club fundraising run.

Darren has been running to raise vital funds for Crumlin GAA so we can continue to promote Gaelic Games to children in the community.

Donate here

There will be tea, coffee & sweet treats available with buckets being shaken for cash donations towards Darren’s fundraising target.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement our U13 Camogie girls are playing their Division 3 Final at home with a throw-in of 11am. If the girls win they will gain promotion to Division 2! A Crumlin Camogie team has not been in Division 2 for many years!

We really need as many supporters in Pearse Park tomorrow morning for Darren and the girls so grab your kids, your granny and a few neighbours and raise your voices for Crumlin!

The weather is set to be beautiful, it would be great to see you there.

Your Community. Your Club. Your Crumlin.

Jim Boggan Run 2021 – Update


Following safety advice there has been some changes made to Darren’s fundraising run this weekend. There are some sections of the Wexford to Dublin road which are not safe for running. 

Rather than admit defeat and call it off Darren has decided with his lionheart grit and Crumlin spirit to still run the same distance of 147km in a different way. With this late change of plan Darren truly is showing us his determination to fundraise and his passion for Crumlin GAA. 

We would love for you to dig deep and support Darren & Crumlin GAA as much as you can via our GoFundMe page here.

Any donation no matter how small will go directly to Crumlin GAA to help continue our promotion of Gaelic games for all ages.

New Running Schedule:

Day 1 – Friday 23rd: Taghmon to Enniscorthy and then return to Taghmon, approx. 60km.

Day 2 – Saturday 24th: Crumlin to Bray area and then return to Crumlin, approx. 60km.

Darren would be appreciative of any runners who would like to join him for any distance they can manage on Saturday. Let us know via any social media channels and we will arrange a time and place for you to support him. 

Day 3 – Sunday 25th: Blessington to Pearse Park, Crumlin. 

Darren will finish his epic run in Pearse Park and we would appreciate as much support there to cheer him home, we will update you with his progress and ETA to the park via social media. 

Best of luck Darren, all of Crumlin is behind you! 💙

Your Community. Your Club. Your Crumlin.

Crumlin GAA Fundraiser – The ‘Road Runner’ is back!


GoFundMe Link here.

Darren ‘The Road Runner’ Hodgins is once again showing us all how it’s done and raising funds for Crumlin GAA Club so let’s dig deep into our pockets and support him every step of the way!

He is going to RUN, YES RUN! from Taghmon, Co. Wexford back to Crumlin GAA Clubhouse.

That is a staggering 147 kilometers!!!

This fundraiser is usually an annual cycling event but due to covid-19 it is not possible at the moment. Wishing to keep the event alive Darren stepped in with this mind boggling quest! We hope to hold a cycling fundraiser later in the year subject to covid-19 restrictions.

Taghmon is the resting place of club legend Jim Boggan. Jim Boggan was Crumlin’s most successful coach and holds a special place in the club members hearts.

Every donation no matter how small makes a huge difference to Crumlin GAA Club.

GoFundMe Link here.

We are a small local hurling, football & camogie club and will ensure all funds raised are put to good use for the juvenile and adult teams that play for the club.

We would appreciate if you could share this post on your social media. 

Your Community. Your Club. Your Crumlin.
