Camogie

Naomh Olaf Camogie

Camogie has been going from strength to strength in recent years with success on the field being reflected in the participation of Naomh Olaf players on Dublin county teams.

In 2017 Róisín MacLoughlin and Chloe Ní Cheallaigh were part of the Dublin premier Junior side which reached the All-Ireland final and Clara O'Sullivan was a member of the Dublin Minor team. Julie Grimes featured on the Dublin Under 16 squad in 2018, with Hannah O’Kelly featuring on that year’s Under 15s. In 2020, the Shanahan sisters – Grace (Under 16) and Christine (Minor) – proudly wore the blue shirt of Dublin.

Naomh Olaf Camogie games are administered by the Dublin Camogie County Board (www.dublincamogie.ie) where fixtures and results for all teams are logged.  

General Naomh Olaf Juvenile Camogie enquiries may be addressed to Mary Gibney at (087) 2405222 or mary.gibney@gmail.com.

Hurling

Hurling is very popular among Naomh Olaf players and in recent years teams are becoming stronger and competing successfully in higher divisions. This is a reflection of the hard work being put in by players and mentors. Players such as Declan O'Dwyer and more recently Eoin Foley have worn the Dublin jersey with pride. In 2020, three Naomh Olaf players were selected for the Under 20 Dublin Hurlers – Dónal Leavy, Ciarán Foley and Finn Murphy – with their season being cut short due to the pandemic. No doubt we’ll see more of these players in the coming year.

CCC1 is responsible for teams from Under 8 to Under 12 and CCC2 for teams from Under 13 to Under 16 and details of these teams are to be found on dublingaa.ie.

Girls Football

Naomh Olaf Girls Football

Allied to the growth of camogie in Naomh Olaf GAA Club, girls football also attracts considerable numbers of young participants. At senior level Naomh Olaf was one of the top teams in Dublin in the early years of the sport and the success of the current adult team is inspiring more girls to take part. Progress in the Academy is being carried on in juvenile ranks with many players taking part in both camogie and football. The success of the Dublin Senior Ladies Football team in winning the All-Ireland title, along with the Naomh Olaf Ladies’ Footballers’ success in recent years, is sure to encourage young Naomh Olaf players as they develop their skills.

dublinladiesgaelic.ie is the official site of the Dublin Ladies Gaelic Football Association (DLGFA) where details of competitions etc. are to be found.

Boys Football

There is no doubting the strength of Gaelic Football in Dublin at present and the performances of the Boys in Blue have motivated many young players to follow in their footsteps. Naomh Olaf GAA Club has seen the effect of the Dublin dream in many young players wanting to take part. In the club itself, the incredible performance of the club's Senior footballers in 2017, the participation of the club's Minor footballers in Minor Division 1 league and Minor A championship for the first time, and the success of the Adult Junior Men’s Footballers during 2020, are an inspiration.

Another Olaf’s name to watch out for in coming years is Sean O’Driscoll who lined out for the Dublin Minor Football squad in 2020. With teams at all age groups (sometimes two or three teams) Naomh Olaf Juvenile Football is in a good place.

Overall fixture and results news are available at dublingaa.ie (CCC1 for age 8 to 12 and CCC2 for age 13 to 16).
