Na Fianna

Program Description:

Ireland

Na Fianna celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2005. Founded in 1955, Na Fianna is unique in Dublin in that it incorporates into one club every facet of Gaelic games and culture, for men, women, boys and girls. Members partake in hurling, football, camogie, handball, racquetball, céilí dancing and snooker.

Membership is at an all-time high with over 1,800 members between the adult and minor grades. 60 teams take to the field each week, while the nursery on Saturday mornings caters for hundreds of local children in football, hurling and camogie.

In tandem with the landmark anniversary year, a €3.2m clubhouse redevelopment programme was completed that saw the clubhouse completely redeveloped with eight new dressing rooms, an adult weights room, a refurbished handball alley, extended social facilities, all of these enhancements have created a fantastic atmosphere within the club but perhaps one of their wisest choices was the inclusion of an all-weather training facility to the plans. With limited training ground it was important to maximise the space the club had available and having researched the area of synthetics thoroughly, Thornton Sports were selected to carry out this element of the development. The results have been dramatic with a well organised timetable. All the club's football and hurling teams have the opportunity to prepare physically and develop their skills regardless of the weather. Without doubt the new all weather has relieved the wear and tear of the club's main pitch.
