Purity in our hearts, Strength in our limbs, Action according to our words
CLG Na Fianna, founded in 1955, is one of very few clubs nationally who embrace and cater for the full diversity of sporting codes of our Associations: Gaelic Football, Hurling, Ladies Football, Camogie, Handball and Rounders. Based in Glasnevin on Dublin’s northside, the club has grown to become of the largest clubs in the country, working out of 15 locations spanning 55 acres all over the northside. Membership is at an all-time high with approx. 3,500 members and we field over 200 teams across all codes and ages. Our €2.7m clubhouse redevelopment was officially opened in 2007, and since then we have added and upgraded all-weather pitches, hurling wall and outdoor handball alley.
The Na Fianna Nursery, established in the early 1990s was one of the first of its kind in the country and has won high acclaim nationally as a model of best practice in juvenile coaching and was key to a string of juvenile, Féile, Minor and U-21 successes.
A major power in Dublin men’s senior football circles, Na Fianna won three-in-a-row county titles between 1999-2001, and were Leinster champions in 1999. Our major hurling successes have been underage: the club won three in a row U21 hurling championship titles in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and four in a row Minor championship titles 2014-2017. Na Fianna senior hurlers reached the Dublin county final in November 2021: a historic day for the club as it was our first Senior Hurling championship final appearance in club history.
In 2022, in another historic first for Na Fianna, the club reached the Senior County Finals in both hurling and men’s football.
The club’s senior Ladies Football team reached their first county final in 2000, and won their first title in 2009. They won again in 2011 (reaching the Club All-Ireland that year) and 2014. Most recently they reached the senior county championship final in 2021. Na Fianna Senior Camogie have been county final participants three times, most recently in 2022.
