Welcome to the biggest, best and most active Amateur Ice Hockey Team in Dublin and Ireland.
Our aim is to provide a fun, exciting and challenging environment for the development of new, intermediate and advanced players over 2 Teams.
John Behan and Stuart Saunders founded The Celtic Clovers Ice Hockey Team in early 2012 . Based at Castleknock ice rink at the time, the Celtic Clovers Ice Hockey Club has evolved from public learn to play sessions to a fully operational club, registered with the Irish Ice Hockey Association (IIHA).
Aimed at developing and supporting interest in Irish Ice Hockey, we now have over 50 registered players, some of which have competed at the 2013 World Championship for the Irish National Men’s, U18 and Women’s teams. Four Celtic Clovers players have been selected from the recent IIHA trials and will be helping make up the men’s national team heading to Andorra in August 2017.
Our team is built with a variety of experiences, nationalities, age and gender, which translates into a rich and fun environment. The club welcomes all new comers, as it is suitable for both beginners and more experienced players.
If you would like to get involved please see the training times on the bottom of the page.
