What people say about Joey’s……..

Kenny Dalglish, (Former Premier League Manager )


“St Joseph’s Boys is one of the finest football nurseries in Ireland and some UK academies could learn from their approach. Their focus on the player’s overall development has been key to their success.”

Eamon Zayed – (Former Player)


“I joined Joey’s at Under 12’s from my local club Broadford Rovers. I spent 6 successful and enjoyable years at Joey’s. I won many medals and trophies as well as making many good friends. I went on to achieve under age international caps and I owe this success to the happy years I spent at Joey’s. I would recommend Joey’s to any child wishing to make friends and excel in the football world”

Miriam Fitzgerald, (Mother) - ex-Joes Player John Fitzgerald


 “John joined Joey’s from Park Celtic at under 11 just as he was getting into secondary school. John had a fabulous time in Joey’s with 2/3 different leaders who developed John’s potential, which resulted in John having a career in football but more importantly John and us made many friends on the way. I would recommend Joey’s to any parent who is committed to their child’s development.”

oige Kennedy, (Head Coach, Colorado - ex-Joeys)


 “I joined Joey’s as a young 11-year goalkeeper and during my time there I was one of the first goalkeepers to participate in the Goalkeepers School run by the late Austin Mullen. I also got opportunities to travel overseas to take part in competitive tournaments with Joey’s and have a lot of great memories of my time at the Club”

John King – (Team Leader)

“Joey’s is not just a successful in football but its a Club where the focus is on producing well balanced youngsters and giving them many of the life skills needed in society. This is a tradition carried on from the founding of the club in 1953 by father McCabe and is embedded in the culture of Joey’s”
