Éire Óg Greystones GAA Club is a Gaelic Athletic Association club with approximately 600 members and 20 different teams competing in Hurling, Gaelic Football, and Ladies Football in Wicklow League and Championship competitions. It comprises adult and juvenile sections. The majority of the clubs members are juveniles, both girls and boys, playing football and hurling. It is recognised[who?] as one of the most successful juvenile clubs in County Wicklow.

The club is amongst the largest community sports club in Greystones, catering for men and women of all ages and also a growing social membership. A new clubhouse, to provide for the growing membership in the club and in the wider community, was under construction as of 2006.

Location and facilities[edit]

The club is located off Mill Road close to the Rugby and Tennis Clubs. It currently has 2 playing pitches, one of these being fully floodlit for training purposes, and a clubhouse with dressing rooms, a sports hall/function room and meeting room.

The main playing pitch is developed to a very high quality[citation needed] and frequently hosts intercounty matches. The club is also trying to gain new lands in the near future to develop a juvenile playing pitch.

New clubhouse[edit]

Due to a shortfall in overall funding, the project was divided into 2 phases:

  • Phase 1 composed of a new 'Social Centre' and sports hall extension to the side of the existing building.
  • Phase 2 will see the completion of the clubhouse with modern changing facilities, and pitch improvement works.
