Ladies Football

Man O’ War GFC has a strong tradition in Ladies football

Return to Team Contacts List 

Our Ladies Football Section has been thriving since fielding our first adult Ladies team in 1993. In fact, Man O’War was among the first Ladies teams established in Dublin. Bernice Jones Moore has been our Ladies Manager throughout the years. We have fielded a Senior team every season, which is relatively unique in Ladies football.

In 2019, the Ladies are competing at Division 3 and Division 8.

The Ladies won the Division 3 league in 1999 and gained Intermediate status for a time. The Ladies competed in two intermediate Championship finals in 2003 and 2004. The Ladies recorded back-to-back league wins in 2013 and 2014, propelling them into Division 2, which is the highest level any Man O’War Senior team has played at. In 2013 they competed in the Junior Championship final, and after a hard fought battle the lost out to a strong Croi Ro Naofa team. They were Cup Winners that year.

The Ladies have returned to Division 3 in 2019 during a phase of transition and re-building. The 2019 team is completely home grown. The team is always looking for new players and welcomes everyone with open arms. See Team Contacts List 

The club fielded a Second Team up to 2004 and this was re-instated in 2015. It is a fantastic outlet for bringing on young players and also re-introducing some ‘experienced’ players back into the game.

The club has had a Minor Ladies team for many years now.

The club has been represented at various Inter County levels from U12, U14, U16, Minor, U21 and Senior. Ailene Fanning is currently a member of the 2019 Dublin Minor team.
