St Kevin’s Boys Club, one of the foremost football clubs in the county renowned for community football and for developing many top class players, has decided to provide a competitive football section for girls, writes Rose Barrett.

The club will host competitive sports for female players starting next season and commencing with the UEFA Disney playmakers programme.


“This decision necessitated the club to change its current name of St Kevin’s Boys Club (founded in 1959) to St Kevin’s Football Club going forward. This motion was  passed unanimously by our members at our AGM,” said Neil Fox, PRO/Social Media Officer for the club.

“To celebrate our name change and the introduction of girls football into the club, the Republic of Ireland Women’s national manager Vera Pauw visited our clubhouse earlier this month so as to formally make the announcement to the public. 

“We were joined at the event by Minister for Sport Thomas Byrne, FAI President Gerry McAnaney and Deputies Paul McAuliffe (FF) and Roisin Shortall (Lab). 

New players and volunteers are always welcome. Contact 01 837 4411 or email [email protected]
