St Vincents is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Marino, on the northside of Dublin, Ireland. The club was founded in 1931 in Marino, although its club grounds were in Raheny for a number of years, but it moved to its home back into Marino in 1987. St Vincents merged with Marino Camogie Club in 1997 to form the St Vincents Hurling, Football and Camogie Club.[1] They have won the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship on three occasions, most recently in 2014.[2] They are the reigning Dublin Senior Football champions, their 26th time to win the title.

Honours[edit]

Football[edit]

Vincents have won the Dublin Senior Football Championship 26 times. Their nearest rivals are O'Tooles who have won the Dublin Championship on 11 occasions. St Vincents won in the years: 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1981, 1984, 2007 and 2013. The team were narrowly defeated by UCD in the 2006 Dublin final. St Vincents eventually won the Dublin championships in 2007 for their first title since 1984. They won the 2013 championship by defeating Ballymun Kickhams after a replay.

  • Two 6 in a rows in the Dublin Senior Championship
  • Two 3 in a rows

A remarkable 7 in a row which would have led to 14 in a row was stopped by Erins Hope in 1956 and yet another 7 in a row was stopped in 1963 by UCD.

They have also won Leinster football titles in the 2013-14,[3] 2007–08, 1984–85, 1975–76 and 1972–73 seasons.

St Vincents highest accolades to date were their three All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship titles in 1976, 2008 and 2014.[2] In the 1976 decider they defeated Roscommon Gaels by 4-10 to 0-05 and in 2008 they overcame Nemo Rangers by 1-11 to 0-13 in the final at Croke Park[4] In 2014 the club won its third All-Ireland title having defeated a gallant Castlebar Mitchels side by a scoreline of 4-12 to 2-11.[5]

In 1991, St Vincent's had the unique distinction of winning the Intermediate and Junior Football Championship. St Vincents are also the most successful club in the Dublin Minor Football Championship. They have won the competition on twenty three occasions in 1994, 1987, 1986, 1983, 1982, 1981, 1980, 1979, 1978, 1971, 1970, 1959, 1958, 1956, 1955, 1950, 1948, 1947, 1946, 1945, 1943, 1942 and 1936. This is a record that is unlikely to be rivalled for many years despite Vincents not winning a title since 1994, as their closest rivals Ballyboden St Endas, Scoil Uí Chonaill and O'Tooles have only won five titles each.

St. Vincents also captured a remarkable double double in 1993/94 capturing the U21 Football & Hurling Championships two years in a row.

Hurling[edit]

St Vincents are more renowned for their football exploits, they have been very successful as a senior hurling side. St Vincents have won the Dublin Hurling Championship 13 times, collecting the title in years 1953, 1954, 1955, 1957, 1960, 1962, 1964, 1967, 1975, 1981, 1982, 1988 and 1993. St Vincents competed in the 2007 and 2010 Dublin Senior Hurling Championship finals but lost to Ballyboden St Endas on both occasions.
