Achill Rovers football club is at the heart of the community of Achill Island football club which plays it's home matches at Fr O'Brien Park, The Valley, located on Achill Island County Mayo.
Soccer in Mayo is primarily played as a summer sport and Achill Rovers this season will field teams at Junior level ( adults ), boys under 16s, under 15s and under 13s.
The club will again be hosting an official FAI Summer Soccer School from 3rd August - 7th August 2015.
Apart from being a soccer club, Achill Rovers is very much part of the local community. We organise coaching indoors, throughout the winter in Colaiste Acla, Dooega ( thanks to Martin Mangan ) – and outdoors at Fr. O’Brien Park during the clear summer evenings.
Running a football club in an isolated area such as Achill Island can be expensive. The closest away match within Mayo can mean a round trip of eighty miles or more!
Therefore we are very grateful to our sponsors whose donations keeps the teams going. and also the local people of Achill & those beyond who purchase our weekly Lotto tickets which is the lifeblood of our club.
