Ardfinnan GAA Club would like to wish all its members and supporters a Happy New Year and the very best of luck to all our teams on the playing fields in 2013.


The Club has compiled a DVD of our book launch at a cost of €15 and this compilation is a recording of this special night in the club’s history.

It contains many pictures which were part of the history book plus some rare footage of football matches and some wonderful old footage of the Ardfinnan Carnival in its hay day.

This is a must have for any household, so get your copy and see can you pick yourself out in the crowd. Contact any Committee member for details.

U21 & Minor

Our U21s and Minors have started training in preparation for their up-coming Championship games.

Contact the Club Secretary on 0868336505 for details on training.


Club Membership is now due and we would appreciate early payment of subscriptions.

Health & Safety

The GAA have made the wearing of gum shields mandatory for all players from Minor down to U6 during matches and all training sessions.

We would ask parents to address this issue as soon as possible as players who arrive at training without them will not be able to take part in the session.
