Cumann Naomh Peregrine is a Gaelic Athletic Association club in Clonsilla, Fingal, Ireland. It was founded in 1978 when a group of local people got together with Fr. Joe Madden of the Servite Order and decided to form a GAA Club of their own.

The Club caters for a range of age groups from 4 years upwards in the parishes of Hartstown, Huntstown, Porterstown, Blakestown and Mountview.

St.Peregrines boast one of the finest clubhouses in the country in addition to a 500 seater spectator stand, a gym, astro turf and sports hall. Local rivals include St. Brigids and Castleknock. File:St peregrines stand.jpg|thumb|As seen from pitch]]

In 2015 the club will have dual senior status. The senior footballers are firmly established in AFL2 and also compete in the Dublin Senior Football Championship having won the IFC in 2006. The senior hurlers compete in AHL3 and for the first time will be in the Dublin Senior Hurling Championship in 2015 following a promotion from the IHC in 2014.

The Club is humorously referred to as " The Penguins" because of their strip.
