Mount Merrion Youth Football Club

Thanks to all at Mount Merrion Youth Football Club, Barry Saul and all the Coaches for allowing me to talk at their managers meeting tonight. Brendan Healy thanks for that wonderful letter you gave me, it says alot about how kids playing football these days are feeling. I’ll post the letter on the site later.

Background story

Mount Merrion Youths Football Club is a junior soccer club based in South County Dublin. The club currently plays its home games in two locations – Deerpark, Mount Merrion for age groups under-11 and above and St Raphaela’s School, Kilmacud for ages up to under 10.

The club was formed in 1974, following the establishment of a team to compete in the Community Games.The club founders were Willie Philips and the late Jim Scully.

In the club’s first year of competitive football, an under 13 team was entered in the Dublin District Schoolboys League and since then this number has steadily grown over the years.  The club currently fields 31 teams, in the Dublin District Schoolboys League and the South Dublin Football League.

In 2005 the club enjoyed one of its’ finest moments, with our Under 18 team wining the Leinster Youths Cup.

Over the last thirty five years the club has played prestigious friendlies against high-profile clubs, including Celtic, Rangers, Southampton, Borussia Dortmund and the Republic of Ireland Under 15 team.   Additionally a number of our ex-players have gone on to play for Eircom League clubs.

The club remains community based, drawing the majority of its players from the local areas of Mount Merrion; Stillorgan; Kilmacud and Dundrum.
