Hi to all of our members,

As we have entered a new year, we would like to update club members on the annual costs associated with running our club, including some of the expenditure headings that contribute to the figure of €150,000 from last year's treasurer's report. They also reflect the various income sources that help us to pay our way.

The continued growth in the numbers, and the obvious poor state of the porta cabins (which are end of life), requires the development of our facilities to cater for our needs. We have been granted outline planning permission for the construction of dressing rooms, toilets, etc.  We have been approved for €150,000 under the 2021 Sports Capital Funding program and we have applied for further funding, under the current allocation, to allow for enabling works required to facilitate the development.

It is important to the Club Executive that our members understand what the annual costs of the club are. We endeavour that our members (from our nursery to our adult players) have a wonderful experience and enjoy playing our great games. Our greatest assets are our people either playing, coaching, or administration. As with all things in life, there are increasing costs associated with running the club, and our expenditure, as reported at our AGM, was €149,500 in 2023. Please find below a breakdown of our annual expenditures and incomes.

GAMES PROMOTION OFFICER; Our club is very lucky to have the services of a Games Promotion Officer (GPO) who works with all of the underage teams in the Club. Shane O Grady also works in the local schools. He is employed by the Dublin County Board. The GPO annual costs to the club are €21,300 per annum.

REGISTRATIONS AND AFFILIATIONS ETC; Team expenses include affiliations, registrations, insurance, which amounted to €34,500 in 2023. Other costs relate to electricity (€7,000), facilities (€12,400), team expenses (14,200), team equipment etc (‹€19,300), referees (€9,000). There are a variety of other costs which contribute to the overall figure. All expenditure is fully verified, and approved, prior to payment through the club accounts.

INCOME SOURCES AND LOANS; We appreciate the considerable membership contributions which last year amounted to €77,800. Our all-weather rentals grossed €42,800. Sponsorship raised €15,00 and the various fundraising events brought in €22,250. We have an outstanding bank loan of €29,000.


We have multiple sponsorship options for any member or business who would be interested; Section Sponsorship (Adult Mens, Ladies, Juvenile and nursery), Team Sponsorship (available across all teams), Event Sponsorship (Club Camps, Golf Classic, etc), Pitch Side Advertising, Jersey sponsership packages, Club Donations, and Project Support. We are extremely grateful to all our sponsors, and club members, who regularly, and continually, support the club.

If you can assist us please contact our club officers and we can discuss the details of your support. Our dedicated email in this area is;

The Club Executive wants to express its gratitude to all club members for their continued work and support of the club.  We encourage members to contact club officers with any financial assistance ideas, or initiatives.
