Stella Maris FC

Stella Maris FC has made, and continues to make, a significant contribution to community life in its own locality and well beyond.
The club's structures, systems and facilities are a treasured social asset that enriches the lives and life chances of hundreds of children annually.
John Giles, now the club President speaks warmly of the formative role Stella Maris played in his life and development. 'It is a wonderful club. And without Stella and the Dublin Schoolboy League providing football, we wouldn't have been able to go on and achieve what we did in the game.'
In recent years, the club has embarked on a development process in order to upgrade the facilities and structures on offer, especially the development of a high quality all-weather pitch.
When Stella Maris approached Clann Credo for loan finance, we immediately saw the importance of investment in such a vital piece of community and social infrastructure.
In March of 2014, a 3G, all-weather astro turf pitch was completed.
Perhaps in years to come Clann Credo can lay a tiny claim when the next Roche or Giles emerges from the ranks of this fantastic sporting institution. 

Location: 3 Waterfall Ave, Drumcondra, Dublin 3

"Eamon Dunphy - Clann Credo wasn't around in my day but I wish it was. Derek Moore, Secretary, Stella Maris FC Clann Credo understood what we wanted, we were all sitting around the same table."
