Lakelands Football Club is a voluntary children and youth soccer club operating in the Stillorgan, Dundrum, Sandyford and Blackrock areas of South County Dublin. The Club has been serving the local community for over 40 years now and has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 1978.
We cater for boys and girls and young men and women of all ages. Our philosophy is to encourage children and young people of all abilities to play and enjoy football. Our Club has seen huge growth over the last 7 years (from 100 players to almost 500) and we now field over 30 schoolboy/schoolgirl teams, a Men’s Senior Team, as well as a thriving Academy for younger children.
Our primary home pitches are at St Tiernan’s Community School in Balally, Sandyford. We have a partnership with St Tiernan’s and base many of our age groups there. We also use St Tiernan’s for some training sessions and of course to hold our annual Mini World Cup event.
Our other home pitches are at Leopardstown Park, Balally Hill, Bearna Park and Marlay Park, which are all under the auspices of Dún Laoghaire/Rathdown (DLR) County Council. We also use a private pitch at St. John of Gods Hospital, Stillorgan.
Our teams train on All-Weather pitches in St. Benildus College, Kilmacud and at DLR Stepaside.
