Club Profile

Shelbourne Football Club was founded by a group of Dublin dockworkers in 1895. For over 120 years, the Club has been an intrinsic part of Dublin’s sporting culture winning 13 League of Ireland titles and 7 FAI Cups.

Players such as Tony Dunne, who went on to win the European Cup with Manchester United in 1968, and current Republic of Ireland star Wes Hoolahan have graced the pitch at Tolka Park. The famous stadium has also seen great victories over European opposition, most notably that memorable night in 2004 when Shelbourne beat Hajduk Split 2-0 in a Champions League qualifier.

Today, Shelbourne Football Club is run entirely by a large team of volunteers who work tirelessly to honour the Club’s history while developing it to meet the changing face of soccer internationally.

Shelbourne FC now boasts a thriving Academy for both boys and girls as well as our new Women’s National League team, all of which contribute international players to Republic of Ireland squads at various age levels. Add to this our U17 and U19 League of Ireland teams and we can proudly claim to be Ireland’s only complete football club, offering a pathway for male and female players from the day they start playing the game right through to the highest level of senior football.

We constantly strive to improve all areas of the club and for the coming season we will be launching our new Family Zone where we hope to provide the best match night experience available to parents and children in the League of Ireland.

The support of local businesses in doing all of this is essential and much appreciated by our supporters, staff, players and the hundreds of young players who benefit from their association with Shelbourne Football Club.
