St Marys is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Saggart, County Dublin, Ireland. Marys have won the Dublin Senior Football Championship on one occasion in 1921. Since then they had been relegated to the Dublin Intermediate Football Championship and regained their senior status in 1976 and have remained a Senior club ever since. St Marys currently play in the Dublin AFL Division 1, which they gained promotion to in 2000 with their Dublin AFL Division 2 title win in that year.

St Marys currently[when?] have two players on the Dublin squad and that is Blaine Kelly and Seamus Walsh. Blaine is currently playing very well and has scored a few times in the NFL (National Football League).[citation needed]

Marys had five players on the Dublin team when they won the 1942 All Ireland Final against Galway. The five players were Paddy Bermingham, Gerry Fitzgerald, Peter O'Reilly, Caleb Crone and Paddy O'Connor. Caleb Crone also won an All Ireland medal with Cork in 1945.

Two St Marys players with Laois parentage—Shane Cooke and David Brennan—have played for the Laois senior football team in recent years.
