    Carbury GAA Club was founded in 1925. It is situated in an expanding rural community in County Kildare. During this time it has grown and developed to become one of the leading senior clubs in the county. The club has around 150 adult members and 150 Juvenile members. The club fields fourteen football teams for both men and women. Our dual players have played hurling consistently over the years with Broadford Hurling Club.


    The club has completed a major development of its clubhouse and pitch facilities, which has provided it with modern, state of the art amenities to bring the club forward into the new millennium. This massive undertaking would not have been considered were it not for the dedication of club officials, players and the support of the local community and businesses.

      • DAN THORNTON RIP


        Dan Thornton, Ballyshannon, Carbury, Co.Kildare passed away recently after a brief illness. Dan was a well known personality not only in the Carbury area but also further afield.
        Dan had a long and loyal history with Carbury and Kildare GAA. He also had a great love of Hurling, where he affiliated himself to Broadford Hurling Club. He was also President of the Long Bar Edenderry Golf Society.
        Dan epitomised what is meant by true community spirit. Dan’s participation in the community was all encompassing. He was the voice of encouragement and experience and had an admirable no-nonsence attitude. He never shied away from hard work which was done on a voluntary basis. Whatever he did he gave 100%. He did the hardest work of all in the current climate, fundraising.
        Dan was a loyal Kildare supporter and enjoyed all aspects of his participation in the GAA. Everybody knew Dan and has fond memories of him in the Kildare GAA circuit. No list of his activities can do justice to the amount of time and effort Dan gave to the GAA.
        A full guard of honour was in place for Dan’s funeral including members of Carbury GAA and Broadford hurling club. Monica his daughter spoke about Dan’s great love of Kildare and all things sport.
        Carbury GAA would like to extend its deepest sympathies to Dan’s family, his wife Pauline, children David, Brendan, Monica and Gemma, brother Michael, sister Nuala, grand children sons-in-law, daughter in law, nephewsn nieces, relatives and friends.

        Dan is sadly missed. May he rest in peace.
