Whitehall Colmcille (Irish: Fionnbhrú Colmcille ) is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based on Collins' Avenue in Dublin 9, Ireland. The Club has contributed in a big way to the success of various County Football teams and All Ireland titles producing many well known names.
Whitehall Gaels took over the lease Thorndale Tennis Club had with Dublin Corporation on Collins Avenue in 1966. Whitehall Gaels merged with Cumann Barra Colmcille in 1973 the objective being of strengthening the Hurling side of the Club, as Colmcille was basically a Hurling Club. Both clubs had senior officials linked to each other that made the amalgamation a smooth one. The Club has won Hurling and Football Championships since then.
The club is still there with a popular members bar (opened 1978), sports hall (built 1986) and ancillary rooms. The club purchased land in Cloghran in 1988 and built dressing rooms on the site in 1997, an all weather training pitch in 2002 and weights room in 2004.
In December 2010 the Club applied to Dublin City Council for planning permission for playing pitch and clubhouse on land opposite the Whitehall cinema on Collins Avenue, Dublin
