Blessington FC

Blessington FC is a Wicklow soccer football club founded in 1968. The club recently opened its’ own dedicated footballing facilities in Crosschapel, about two miles from Blessington on the Dublin side. The Clubs’ first ever league match was played against Court Laundry at home. It took a number of years before Blessington had any meaningful success in playing terms. The club’s first significant football success was in the 1979/80 season when the club won division 3 of the Sunday league. During the 2002/2003 season the Sunday senior team were second in their league and they also won two cup finals at the Athletic Union League headquarters.

Since 1981 the schoolboys’ section of the soccer club has registered a number of successes on the field of play. The underage teams play their matches at the Community College in Blessington Town. It is intended to eventually move all of the eleven-a-side underage teams to the Crosschapel complex.

Blessington FC also runs a soccer nursery on Sunday mornings at the Community College. This is for five to eight year olds.
