About Our Club
St Pauls FC was founded in 1975 by Toddy Fitzpatrick (RIP) and following an amalgamation in 1986 with neighbouring club Artane FC, became known as St Paul's Artane FC. The club caters for children and adults mainly from the Dublin 5, 13 and 17 areas.
The ethos of the club is to cater for players of all standards and backgrounds and St Paul's Artane FC are long standing and proud members of the Dublin District Schoolboy League and the Athletic Union League.
The club won the FAI Club of the Month in March 2010.Over the last 13 years, and a result of 4 separate successful Applications to the Sports Capital program, the club was allocated an overall total of €877,500. The club has built a floodlit 'seven a side' All Weather Pitch beside our clubhouse, has built 6 extra dressing rooms, built a first floor extension to our clubhouse and installed a gymnasium which was opened in July 2010 by Giovani Trappatoni, Marco Tardelli and John Delaney.
A full suite of new gymnasium equipment was installed in 2013. All Projects were managed from start to finish by current Club Officials and all projects were delivered on Budget and on Time.
We have 300-400 members which we expect will continue to grow going forward.We have Public Gym classes operating in the club a number of nights a week which operate on a ‘pay as you Go’ basis which makes them affordable to the occasional use .We run a number of charity events during the year and have organised local Active Retirement Christmas parties annually for the last 15 years.We currently have 5 CE Workers working in the club.
The club now feels that this is the perfect time to embark on a new project, which will allow the club to grow into the future.
We have one of the best Clubhouses and club facilities anywhere in the Irish Soccer Community but we are very restricted by the uncertainty of our current playing pitch. Beside our well developed Clubhouse and natural Home, is McAuley Park. Playing & Training on the currently zoned pitches has become very difficult in recent years due poor drainage and vandalism.
