We are a Hurling and Camogie Club based in the heart of the parish and community of Clonard in Wexford Town. We offer the opportunity for underage boys, underage girls and adults alike to enjoy Gaelic Games in one convenient location in our Coolcotts GAA grounds in the centre of Wexford Town.
OUR NAME & CREST
NA FIANNA: ”Band of Warriors” . They were small, semi-independent warrior bands in Irish mythology. They are featured in the stories of the Fenian Cycle, where they are led by Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool).
They had three mottos:
• Glaine ár gcroí (Purity of our hearts)
• Neart ár ngéag (Strength of our limbs)
• Beart de réir ár mbriathar (Action to match our speech)
CLONARD: ‘An Chluain Árd’ the high meadow.
CREST: Our crest features a hurl and sliotar depicting our games of Hurling & Camogie. It also features the Irish Warrior, Cu Cuchlainn, one of the most famous Irish mythological heroes.
