Réalt Dearg is a junior hurling club, founded in Dublin in November 2009.
The club was set up by a group of Gaelic Games enthusiasts, who felt there was a need for a hurling team to cater for the South Dublin City suburbs of Rathmines, Ranelagh, Rathgar, Terenure, Donnybrook and Clonskeagh.

Stars have 3 teams and play in the Dublin Junior Hurling Championship and League.
We play in Leagues 5,8 and 9 and in Junior A and E in the Championship.
Another year with great progress despite the county final streak being broken. The season highlight was a double on quarter final Sunday as our A and B teams battled through to the Junior A and E semis where their year would ultimately be ended. A record number of wins for the C team shows the continuing growth and development of the club.
In a remarkable show of consistancy for such a small club, the clubs A Team reached our fourth consecutive County Final in the Junior B Championship, securing our promotion to Junior A next year. The B maintained their place in Junior E while the C team continues to grow and reached the knockout phase of championship for the first time.
Building on previous good performances, the clubs A Team secured reached our third consecutive County Final in the Junior C Championship, securing our promotion to Junior B next year. The B & C teams continue to grow with both new and established members making it a very successful year.The C team entered championship for the first time and celebrated with a win in their first ever championship game.
Showing continued progress, the clubs A Team secured promotion to AHL5 and the B Team reached our second consecutive County Final in the Junior F Championship, securing our promotion to Junior E next year. The C team continues to grow with both new and established members making it a very successful year.
2015 marked another important milestone in the club’s history. The Club reached our first County Final in the Junior D Championship. We continued to field 3 league teams and welcomed several new members into the club.
2014 marked some important milestones in the club’s history. The first silverware in the clubs history was won when the “A” team won League 7 on the final day of the season. In 2014 the club also found a home in Drimnagh Castle. 2014 was also the year that the club entered a 3rd team into the Dublin League. This ensured that all the members of the club had an opportunity to play league hurling during the year.
Recruiting New Players
Realt Dearg is different to most other clubs in that we don’t have a feeder underage structure. Because of this we are genuinely always looking to recruit adult male players of any level.
With the three teams no matter what your level you will find a team that suits you and will get plenty of game time. We'll show you the basics if you don't know them- so even if you've never played before, don't let that stop you.
Training is underway. Helmets are compulsory for all. If you'd like to join us please contact one of our committee members or email firstname.lastname@example.org
All you need to play is a hurl and a helmet. We'll see you out there!
