U13 National Cup Last 16

On saturday 18th February our U13a side host Mulligar Athletic in Christy Leahy Park at 2-00pm . All support for the boys would be extremely welcome and hopefully see the boys into the last eight of a national competition .


2017 promises to be a big year for the Club. On the pitch, our player development programme from the ever successful Academy right up to Youth level continues to flourish. The Club is continually growing & the Management Committee recognises the urgent requirement to improve facilities for players, coaches, parents/guardians and everyone associated with St.Brendan’s Park Football Club.

Over the next few weeks & months, you will see various developments taking place on the Clubs grounds.

The perimeter wall will be finally completed, our playing pitches are being upgraded along with improvements being made to our grass warm up area. Perhaps, most important of all, will be the construction of a new Clubhouse (on the site of the existing shop).

This building will accommodate a shop/coffee & meeting area for people to relax (& take shelter!) on those wet & windy days.

In order to help raise funds towards the heavy costs that the Club will incur, in association with Byrne’s Spar (Caherslee, Monavalley & Oakpark) and Eir Sport, we are running a Grounds Development Fundraising Draw.

Prizes will include 3 Premium Level tickets plus €100 diesel vouchers to help with transport costs, to one of Irelands upcoming matches at the Aviva Stadium in 2017.

We have prizes for all of Ireland’s matches. First up is the already sold-out crucial fixture versus Wales on 24th March next. Other prizes will include 12 month free subscriptions to Eir Sport (including BT Sport channels).

We are also very grateful to Irish Olympic Boxing Medallist, Michael Conlan, who is kindly donating a signed pair of his Boxing Boots, ahead of his Professional debut at Madison Square Garden on St. Patrick’s Day!

We are kindly asking for your support. Tickets are Euro 5 each or 3 for Euro 10. Each player within the club will receive 3 tickets. If anyone would like to support the Club further by purchasing more tickets, they will be available at the existing Club Shop or through the various coaches.
Please note that prizes won are strictly NOT for further resale.

Once again, thank you all for your continued support.
