The latest AIG Dub Club Chronicles is a return to the beginning.
‘Shooting Stars’ – 1 Year On…
12 months ago, AIG’s Dub Club Chronicles visited Glencullen’s Stars of Erin to hear its stories and its history.
This remote club in the Dublin mountains relies on the never-ending support and hard work of an extremely close-knit community.
One year on, AIG were invited back to this historic club, for the twelfth installment of their Chronicles series, to witness the ‘Shooting Stars’ of its thriving underage structures in action and to see how the club is looking ahead to the future, with the help of this community.
The idyllic village of Glencullen has been home to Stars of Erin since 1903. The club is the life and soul of the village and surrounding areas. There’s been tough times over the years, but in this new video, you can clearly see how the club is thriving and bursting with young talent.
In the last few years, as the areas of Stepaside and Kilternan have grown, so has the club. And it now boasts 32 Juvenile teams. A testament to the residents, both old and new of this ever growing neighbourhood.
Last year their U12 hurling and football teams both won their respective league titles.
This year they now have boys and girls teams competing at all ages from Under 6 to Under 12.
If there ever was an example of a GAA club being the heart and soul of a small community, Stars Of Erin is it.
