Inside Out Camps

Inside Out Camp is a camp for 12 to 14 year olds to help with mental health issues going into Secondary school. The idea behind the camps is a proactive approach to teen mental health. The more confident our kids are in themselves the more resilient they will be in dealing with life’s challenges so camp is all about learning about themselves in a fun non-academic environment. It is all about laying the foundations for a stronger more positive mindset from a young age.

Clubforce DDSL Cup Finals 2022

The Clubforce DDSL Cup Finals 2022 will take place in the AUL, Dublin across the weekend 13th/14th/15th May. You can buy tickets for any of the days or for the full weekend. Please advise all involved with the team, including Parents, that cash will not be taken at the gate. Entry is by prepaid ticket only.

Tickets can be purchased through Clubforce. The cost is €5 per day per adult with a weekend ticket of €10. Please click HERE


The use of prepaid tickets is a new development for the League, arising from instructions from the Gardaí who will not permit the queueing of cars outside the gate of the AUL complex. This was a problem when we last held the event pre covid, which led to a serious health and safety issue with cars having to queue on the ‘country” road outside the complex. The Gardaí have advised that if queueing occurs, cars will be moved on and will not be permitted to enter the complex.

On Saturday 19th February 2022, St John Bosco FC and Swords Celtic Football for All teams

On Saturday 19th February 2022, St John Bosco FC and Swords Celtic Football for All teams played their first ever football match courtesy of Knocklyon Utd. The fabulous Brickfields All Weather Community pitch was the venue for a thrilling afternoon's action, with Knocklyon's u9s taking on Swords Celtic, and the 10-14s group facing St John Bosco.

There was nothing but positivity and praise from the huge crowd of spectators, and the children on the pitch showed passion, skill and immense sportsmanship.

The players walked out together to the Champions League music before shaking hands and settling in to the match.

The flexibility within the rules allowed all abilities to be actively involved, and the referee/ facilitators on both pitches were fantastic. There were thrilling passages of play, some resulting in great tackles or saves, others involving fantastic goals.

Update: Girls Football Development Strategy 2021-2023

Welcome to the new season 2022-2023. I’d like to take this opportunity to update you on the progress and development of Girl’s football in the Dublin & District Schoolboys’Girls’ League.

Season 2021-2022

Last season saw our Girls League expand to 20 Divisions with 180 teams across 7 age groups from U8 to U14, with 2,600 girls participating.

Remarkable figures by any standards which clearly reflect the growing popularity of the game which will no doubt receive a further boost following the recent Women's Euro Championship.

Cup Finals 2022-2023

The highlight of the season was no doubt the first ever DDSL Girls Cup Finals. There were 4 finals played from u11 to u14. There is no doubt it will remain long in the memories of those present that Sunday in May. The quite staggering crowds present at the games and the after match presentations were amazing.

The participation and support of all (players/managers/mentors/parents) was incredible. Roll on next seasons finals.
