Kildangan is a small village in south Kildare between the towns of Athy, Kildare and Monasterevan. Despite having to fold on more than one occasion in the past hundred years due to a variety of reasons, mainly low population numbers, Kildangan GAA has still managed to become a vital part of the local community each time and it certainly helps to embody the spirit of the word. Since its re-establishment in 2001, the club has went from strength to strength at both underage and adult levels. In 2010, the club officially opened its ground, More O'Ferrall Park, but on top of that, was also named the Kildare GAA Club of the Year. This is thanks to the efforts of everyone in the locality and, quite often, beyond! Kildangan's most recent success on the football field (Geraldine Park in Athy, more specifically) was beating Suncroft in the 2008 Division 5 final. Currently, the Senior team play in Division 4 South of the league and also in the Reserve C Championship. Onwards and upwards!
