Marino Boys Funding Secured from Council

I am delighted that Dublin City Council have responded to my representations and have committed to undertaking upgrading works for their dilapidated clubhouse.

Marino Boys FC provide an excellent service to the local community and deserve the best of facilities to ensure that they reach their massive potential as a club. Their exclusive focus on juvenile football means that they are a community club determined to provide a service to the Marino area and beyond. Despite this they have had disappointments in the past, most notably when their application for funding to the Sports Capital Fund was turned down.

Thankfully the City Council have now agreed to help renovate the clubhouse, allowing four dressing rooms to be constructed and vastly improving the toilet facilities for the players.

Thanks are due to Eoin Ward and Celine Reilly from Dublin City Council for working in partnership with the club and assisting them with their plans
