40th anniversary celebrations

Following a meeting in 1975 in the North Coast Hotel (now the White Sands), Naomh Mearnóg was born and has grown since then, from 4 local authority pitches, supplemented by the Community School pitch, to our present facilities at Pairc Mearnóg, which is one of the best and biggest of any field game club in Ireland. This is a tribute to the goodwill that exists for Naomh Mearnóg in the community of Portmarnock and to our dedicated members and various committees. Many of the founding committee members continue to play a significant role in the Club to this day. We thank them sincerely for all their hard work and commitment to this wonderful club.

As part of the 40th anniversary celebrations, there will be a memorabilia display. We are, therefore, seeking the help of members in gathering old Naomh Mearnóg club memorabilia such as photograph’s, newspaper articles, programme’s etc. Such items can be left at the Club Bar for collection. If you wish to have these items returned to you, please put your name and telephone number on the back.
