In 1917, James Maloney set about reorganising the GAA in the Finglas area. From this the Erin’s Isle Club was born. With their colours Green and Black, representing both Ireland and the patriots that were killed in 1916, Erin’s Isle saw huge success in their formative years and in a shot time saw themselves up with the best of the best in the county.
The club have had huge success in Hurling, Football and Camogie at Senior level. And club members like the great Charlie Redmond, who says Green and Black runs through your blood when you’re from Finglas, is an example of success this huge Isle’s family has produced.
Club PR Officers Paul Campbell explains how the club has become a sanctuary for so many kids over their 100 year existence, giving so many a sense of belonging to the community, right dow to their Player Pathways Programme, providing educational assistance right through to financial bursaries.
All in all Erin’s Isle is probably one of the finest examples of GAA in the community.
