The Early Days

Sportsfile - Irish Arsenal players photocall - 414886-6

The first football – and schoolboys football –  club in Enniskerry was formed in 1968. Over the next few years football way played by Enniskerry Rangers and Enniskerry Celtic, each of which had a rich history to them.

An early club highlight came in 1973 was when Johnny Murphy went on trial to Arsenal with Liam Brady, Frank Stapleton and David O’Leary.

We’re in the process of pulling together a detailed history of the early days of the club. Any stories, photos or articles would be really appreciated – please email them to the Secretary at, or give David a buzz on 0862283213
