Clubs Hall of Fame

These are the clubs run by community volunteers, people who provide a sporting and leisure outlet for thousands of boys, girls and adults around Ireland. Most clubs have a very proud history and tradition to protect and uphold.

Sports clubs are a huge part of our Irish Heritage and our new category “Clubs Hall Fame” provides an added publicity stream to reach out with your club profile to Irish people; Irish exiles and people of Irish ancestry.
