The Naomh Mearnóg Nursery 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 nursery for girls & boys resumes 1st Sept 2018:
– Girls (Camogie & Football) 10am – 11.15am
– Boys (Hurling & Football) 11.30am – 12.45am

The Nursery Membership Fees is €100 for one child and €50 for each additional child from the same family and online registration is available.

Juvenile players who were born during 2011 and who will be moving from the Nursery to Under 8 Level on 1 January 2019 are covered until 31st December 2018 by their 2017/2018 nursery membership. From 1 January 2019 they will need to be registered as juvenile players or added as playing members under their family membership.

The ethos of the Nursery

The nursery 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 nursery is managed by Games Development committee and David Sweeney, 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. David 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!
