Ballinteer St Johns was founded in 1982. Since then, it has grown into a vibrant community based GAA Club situated on the edge of Marlay Park in South Dublin. Its’ catchment area covers Ballinteer, Churchtown, Rathfarnham, Dundrum and beyond. Currently, Ballinteer St Johns has over 3,000 members and 1,000 families, covering girls, boys, mens and ladies Gaelic games.
The Club has many representatives on a wide range of Dublin squads and continues to develop and grow.
Ballinteer St Johns has over 100 teams playing every week during the season throughout the county. The club’s thriving Nursery section sees over 300 5-7 year olds get introduced to our sports every weekend ensuring the future is bright for Ballinteer St Johns. Club pitches are in Marley Park, Broadford, Nutgrove, Ballinteer Community School (All Weather Pitch) and Good Shepherd National School. These are perfectly positioned and visible in the heart of the community.
The club’s main pitch in Marlay Park was recently upgraded to Championship grade and was reopened in Summer 2020. The clubhouse is the home of regular social & cultural events, and a buzz of activity when conditions allow!
