Glencullen Community Clubhouse

Flagship Community Led Capital Project to develop a community facility with a multi-functional focus to ensure all sectors of the rural community of DLR have access to social & recreational activities in a high-quality environment.

Project concept

The project proposal was to deliver a high-quality multi-function community facility in the isolated village of Glencullen in the heart of the Dublin Mountains. The centre was to be developed on the site of the Stars of Erin GAA Club grounds but was to be an all – inclusive facility to serve the entire community.

The community at large and the members of Stars of Erin had sought to develop a clubhouse for many years and this was the realisation of a long-held dream for a home for Stars of Erin with the additional bonus of a first class community centre for all sectors of the community of the Dublin mountain village.

The community aspect provides an opportunity for all sectors of the community in this area to utilise the facility young and old, sporting and non-sporting, cultural and community.

All of the community embraced this project and worked tirelessly fundraising to ensure the achievement of a first class multi-function community facility and a home for Stars of Erin GAA club.

The green field site as depicted in the photograph above taken on the day the project was launched by local resident well-known sports personality Ronnie Delaney and the final result is now standing proudly on the hill above Glencullen village in the scenic Dublin mountains.


The promoter were successful in his application, with funding of €21,800.95 approved he has purchased the equipment and has expanded his business further catering for events and parties. The promoter also hopes to reach as many people as possible and help them become healthier, slimmer, have more energy and generally feel good about themselves. Whilst showing them the natural beauty that is on their doorstep.
