Massive Dublin GAA Club Na Fianna gets AIG’s Focus
It seems quite fitting with the recent news of the expected upheaval on Mobhi Road by the Transport Authorities that AIG’s next chapter in their amazing Dub Club Chronicles focuses on Na Fianna GAA.
Founded in 1955, and at heart of the local community, the club faces its biggest challenge yet in its long history. Na Fianna is the lifeblood of this densely populated area in Glasnevin and it’s surrounds. The long list of talent that this club has produced over the years shows just how important the organisation is in the Dublin GAA landscape.
With household names and inter county stars like Dessie Farrell, Paul Caffrey, Jason Sherlock, Senan Connell, Jonny Cooper, Jimmy Gray, Joey Boland, Donal Burke, Leah Caffrey, Lucy Collins, Eve O’Brien, and so many more, Na Fianna are an epicentre of talent.
AIG speak to Jonny Cooper, founding member Jimmy Gray, Club and GAA President John Horan about what the club has done for them and what it means to them and their 3000 plus members and 166 teams.
There’s certainly a spirit around Na Fianna quite different to other clubs in Dublin.
