FEILE 2018


All boys are invited to the Clubhouse for 6.30pm this Friday.  Recently retired rugby international Eoin Reddan will give the boys and mentors/parents a brief talk about teamwork, how successful teams deal with challenges and other insights from his playing days.  We will then present the Feile Gear to the boys.  Each boy must bring €50 for their gear. Outstanding sponsorship money from the run should also be brought.  Football only boys can then go home.  The Hurlers will have a light session which will conclude at 8pm.


We still have some fundraising to do inorder to run the Feile events, as well as subsidising the cost of the personalised kit for the players. 

IF YOU WANT TO DONATE PLEASE Give online via - link is here (preferred and easiest method),

Regular player movement between squads will be an ongoing feature for the benefit of player development and for the benefit of the group.  Given the scale of the group our policy continues to be to update the website with changes as we go.  Parents will not be contacted on an individual basis if their son is moving between squads but will simply get a text from the Lead Mentor of the squad which they will be playing for in advance of the coming Saturday fixture requesting confirmation of availability.

Parents continued support in this regard is much appreciated



Please Take Note of Your Team, Match, Time and Location. If a player is sick, injured or unavailable, it is imperative you contact the lead mentor for your team. *Please check website for updates on Friday evening & Saturday morning for any late changes*.

  • Coaching is done on a volunteer basis and the mentors do so as a way to contribute to the community of Clontarf and surrounding areas.
  • All coaches are parents of players and are members of the club.
  • Please be respectful of the coaching staff during our training sessions and match fixtures. 
  • Please arrive on time.  This makes our job a lot easier and in turn a more enjoyable experience for the boys.
  • We openly encourage parents to get involved, support and encourage all of the boys regardless of ability.  Under no circumstances should Parents walk onto the pitch to engage with match officials/referees or opposition coaches.
  • We ask that you and your son listen to and follow instructions given by the mentors.
  • If you are interested in Coaching? WE WOULD WELCOME MORE HELP!, especially our Monday & Friday training sessions. So if you are bored standing on the side line or if you feel that you can make a positive contribution please volunteer to get involved. It is a great way to spend time with your son and be part of the community.
  • We can do with all the help we can get and don’t worry it only looks like hardwork!


  • Please arrive 10 minutes before training is due to commence.
  • New players are always welcome.
  • Gum shield required for football training.
  • For hurling training, please bring your helmet and hurley and shin guards if you have them.

House Keeping:

  • Upcoming weekend fixtures are typically posted to this web page on the Wednesday evening / Thursday morning prior to our matches. But please check the website on Friday evenings in case there are any late changes / cancellations.
  • Parents are requested to call or text one of the mentors should their son be unavailable for a competitive fixture. Advance notice would allow the mentors re-organise and make better use of substitutes across other teams in the squad.
  • All players and parents travelling to away fixtures (unless otherwise indicated) should meet in advance at the clubhouse on Seafield Road West. Meeting times will be indicated when the fixture is posted mid week.
  • Meeting in advance can facilitate car pooling and allow the mentors determine final squad numbers. It would also mean that players are arriving in or around the same time to away locations.
  • It is important that we arrive on time to both home and away fixtures, so the players can warm up and hit the ground running when throw in comes.
  • Match reports are generally available on a Monday evening after the weekend games are played. The reports can be found in the Clubnotes section of the "News" tab. A Login is required, but registration only takes a couple of minutes to complete.
  • For all hurling fixtures, players are required to wear a helmet and to bring their hurley. Shin guards are optional.
  • For all football fixtures, players are required to wear a gum shield.
  • For all competitive fixtures, players should wear their RED Clontarf jersey, white club shorts and red club socks unless otherwise indicated.
  • Players should drink plenty of water during and after matches and training and remember to take empty containers home.
