C.L.G. Malainn is a GAA club based in Malin in County Donegal. It is the northernmost GAA club in Ireland.It was also the club of the year in 2003.[1] This tends to cause logistical struggles during the league as many of their rivals are a great distance away.[2] Declan Walsh, a member of the 2012 All-Ireland winning inter-county team, plays for them.[3][4]

The club is also home to 2012's "Number One Real Supporter", according to a national survey.[5][6]
