Soccer in the Meadow

Soccer in the Meadow and Belles are absolutely critical participation initiatives, which showcase sport as a fun community based recreational activity, and which are one of the best ways we have to recruit children and key target groups into the Club.

Like ‘Belles in the Meadow’, Soccer in the Meadow makes a significant contribution to the quality of life in the community of Enniskerry and north Wicklow, creating a community driven surge of volunteers, enabling the Club – and the wider community – to embrace children and families from all socio-economic, cultural and religious backgrounds.

It brings together cooperation between the other community groups in the area, e.g. community games (scheduled not to clash with county finals where possible), GAA (no competitions on this weekend) and the Wicklow Schoolboys/girls League (movement of dates so as not to clash with presentations).

It also brings thousands of people to the village of Enniskerry during the events, which helps to boost the trade for all the village businesses, who have complimented the Club on how this has helped their business on these weekends. They are also very supportive of the Club during the year.

In the last 2 years we have also held a popular disco for teenagers who attended Soccer in the Meadow.
