The Iveagh Grounds based in Drimnagh & on the Crumlin Road provide a wide range of sporting activities for Drimnagh people of all ages. The likes of Guinness Rugby Football club, St James Gaels GAA club, St James Gate Football & Hockey clubs all run their organisations from these grounds.

Check out this video of the Iveagh Grounds from when it was founded in 1926. It was known back then as pneumonia park cos it was so breezy, you’d end up with pneumonia. The accents are great & I love the ladies near the end of the video in their ‘Pretty Woman’ style polka dot dresses.
