About St Brigids

St Brigids were formed in 1944. The club won their first senior title in 1953 and they won their first Connacht club title in 2006, winning their second provincial title in 2010. The club also achieved an incredible nine U21 county football titles in a row, a period of dominance which only ended in 2010.

  St Brigids are regarded as one of the most progressive GAA clubs in the country and their development at Kiltoom in now probably the finest club facility in Connacht.

  St Brigids have loads of experience on their senior team with players like Niall Grehan, Robbie Kelly, Darragh Donnelly, Gearoid Cunniffe, Karol Mannion, Frankie Dolan, Ian Kilbride, Senan Kilbride, David O’Connor and Brendan O’Brien all veterans of many campaigns for club and county.

  There is a vibrant underage ladies football and social structure in the club and they have their own full-time coaching officer to oversee player development.
