Founded in 1904, Railway Union Hockey Club is one of the oldest and most famous hockey clubs in Ireland. We have male and female teams for all ages and abilities, catering for players of all backgrounds and nationalities. From 7 to 70, Railway has a place for you.  Outddors, we field 5 women’s teams, 4 men’s teams, a veterans teams and a thriving junior section and we have two womens and two mens indoor hockey teams.  The club caters for all ages and all levels of ability from social hockey players to international athletes.

The hockey club has won many accolades including the prestigious All Ireland Leagues and Cups (most recently in 2018/19) and we are the reigning All Ireland Indoor Champions in both mens and womens hockey and will represent Ireland at the 2022 European Club Indoor Championships.  We were awarded the IHA Hockey Club of the Year in 2010 and have also been awarded a number of national awards for individual players, coaches and volunteers. We have something to offer men, women, boys and girls as well as something for parents, supporters and past members with our range of facilities, hockey coaching, competition and social events.

We have actively supported the 20×20 campaign to increase participation, support of and media coverage for women in sport and partnered with the 20×20 campaign as part of their initial launch in 2018 and our club features on their website and promotional material. We have continued our ambitions in this area with the appointment of 20×20 Advocates within the club and have set a number of key goals for 2022.
