Éire Óg: A History

Éire Óg Doire Achaidh GAC (Gaelic Athletic Club) is a small Gaelic club from the outskirts of Dunmurry. Founded in 1932, and playing out of Woodlands Playing Fields, Éire Óg Doire Achaidh is the local club for the parishes of St Anne's and Our Lady Queen of Peace, providing Gaelic football and Hurling teams for the children of Derriaghy, Finaghy, Dunmurry, Black's Rd, Glengoland and Cloona. The club has teams from Primary 1 level all the way through to senior level.

Eire Og was founded in 1932 and has since won Football Championships, Hurling Championships, League and Cup honours and has also contributed many inter county footballers and hurlers who wore the saffron of Antrim, as well as other county colours.
