The Naomh Mearnóg Academy runs on Saturday mornings from September to June (excluding bank holidays ) for boys and girls aged 4 to 7 years old and it is the perfect induction for all those budding future stars of Dublin GAA!!

The academy for girls & boys returns Saturday 10th September 2016.

Cost is only €70 for one child and €80 for 2+ children and online registration is available.

This year, we have a special offer of just €50 per child for a nursery pack which includes a replica jersey, shorts, socks and an O’Neills gym bag. This package is completely optional but anyone interested can purchase it along with the registration. 

The ethos of the Academy

The Academy is, first and foremost, about fun and enjoyment for the children and provides them with an opportunity to make friends and get used to playing and sharing with other children. They will learn the basic motor skills of Gaelic games and will participate in small sided matches.

The Academy is managed by Paddy Gorey, our Club Coach who is a familiar face to those who attend the local schools as he coaches in all of the local primary schools during the week. Paddy is ably assisted by a team of parents who volunteer and help to run and co-ordinate the drills and the matches!

There is also a coffee shop which runs in the clubhouse on Saturday mornings where children and parents get to unwind and relax and meet other families after their activities!! It is the place to be for a family on a Saturday morning in Portmarnock!
