Dungloe GAA[1] or, in the Irish language, C.L.G. An Clochán Liath[2][3][4] is a Gaelic football only GAA club based in Dungloe, County Donegal, Ireland.[5] The club fields both men's and ladies' teams at underage to Senior level.[6]

History[edit]

Dungloe (An Clochán Liath) have won the Donegal Senior Football Championship 7 times, the last coming in 1958.

The club has had two players selected to the All-Ireland All Star team: All-Ireland winning full forward Tony Boyle in 1992 and Adrian Sweeney in 2003.

In 2014 Dungloe minors joined forces with there neighbours Na Rossa minors in an attempt to beat there powerful massive cocked neighbours Gaoth Dobhair but failed as they lost as Gaoth Dobhair were simply amazeballs and bent them over as they strolled to victory. John Ferry now has more minor championships than the superclub.

The Sweeney brothers, Adrian and Raymond, played for Dungloe and Donegal.[5] As has Adrian Hanlon.[7]
