About Us

Naomh Olaf Aerial Shot
Ólaf Us Together
Ní neart go cur le chéile

The open field and it’s freshly cut grass was our community hall before townhalls were ever built.

The mountain was our wall and the blue sky above, our roof.

Everyone, of all ages, families, friends, met and played there together.

Situated under the gaze of Three Rock Mountain, Sliabh Ruadh (The Red Mountain), and serving an area stretching from Sandyford to Churchtown, Dundrum & Balally to Ballyogan, Leopardstown & Stepaside - Naomh Ólaf GAA Club is located in the Sandyford Business Park District.

Founded in 1981, we are a vibrant and welcoming club, respecting diversity and welcome membership from boys and girls, men and women of all abilities, needs and backgrounds.

What We Do

We believe that the power of sport and community can improve all our lives, enrich our collective well-being, and improve the world around us by contributing to something unique and special.

Naomh Ólaf GAA club also serves as a hub for many other sports and social clubs from around the community, with whom we share our club's facilities.

We currently field 90 teams at all levels in Football, Ladies Football, Hurling and Camogie.

On The Pitch

Many Naomh Ólaf players have donned the Dublin jersey over the years across all codes - Mens & Ladies Football, Camogie and Hurling.

Recently our players have come more-and-more to the forefront, representing our club and playing for Dublin at various age levels and development squads:

  • Julie Grimes – Minor Ladies football
  • Chloe Kelly McDonald - Camogie
  • Finn Murphy - Minor Hurling
  • Ciaran Foley - Minor Hurling
  • Donal Leavy - Captain Minor Hurling
  • Tom Keane U21 Football

Naomh Olaf Player David Byrne

Pride of place must go to David Byrne, who captained Dublin to the All-Ireland Minor Football title back in 2012, their first since 1994, and then joined the Dublin Senior Football team to collect his first All-Ireland Senior medal in 2013.

He has since added 6 more Celtic Crosses to his collection as a central member of Jim Gavin's great 6-in-a-row side, from 2015 to 2018, and in 2020 under the management of Dessie Farrell.

David speaks about being a Noamh Ólaf member - from Academy to Juvenile, through Minor and now a Senior player with Naomh Ólaf and Dublin Football
