Bake Sale for Ukraine was a huge success

Proud of our Girls in Blue

Clanna Gael Fontenoy is proud of each and every one of our players – juveniles, adults, boys, girls, mens and ladies. However, we do need to recognise when our players achieve truly outstanding performances. Three of our U14 girls, Lauren Kennedy, Sophie Gallagher and Carrie Whelan, were selected to join the Dublin County U14 panel. Another of our girls, Izzy Dowling, was also selected to play for Dublin U16s in their match against Meath on Saturday 5 March.
The Dublin U16s got their 2022 Leinster Championship off to a fantastic start with a 4-09 to 2-09 win over Meath. And if that wasn’t enough we get to celebrate another fantastic player, Sarah Rooney, for making it onto the Dublin Minor Panel. These are outstanding achievements by the girls given the competition for places and it is a credit to their commitment, to their coaches and families. We wish all of the girls continued success for the county in their ongoing competition.

Bake Sale for Ukraine

We are all shocked and deeply concerned for Ukraine and the impact that war is having on the country and its citizens. We hope that it will end soon. In the interim, we will do what we can to help and support those affected.
A family in the club has been taking its relatives out of the war torn region. We are very grateful for all the support of the club members and the wider community. A bake sale will take place in the Club on Sat 26th March from 9am till noon in support of this family. We will ask that members bring their cakes, buns etc to the club on that morning to support our member’s extended families who are impacted by these events.

St Patrick’s Day Parade

Clanna Gael Fontenoy continues to grow – serving an increasingly large community which extends from Irishtown, Ringsend and Sandymount to Pearse St, Blackrock and Booterstown– something which the Club is delighted about and very proud of. And its inaugural St Patrick’s day parade, which attracted over 1,000 participants, celebrated the club’s heritage within its local community. The parade raised money for Ringsend and Irishtown Community Centre (RICC) on Thorncastle Street which has been serving the local community for over 30 years. The CNGF was delighted to support this important and valued service within our community. Grand Marshal Alice Foley has played an important role in the Club for many years, supporting many of young players as they developed a passion for playing GAA and CNGF was delighted that she led the parade and celebration.
