Glenview's turn must come soon; they were founded in 1972 but have yet to win

a trophy. They are currently in one of the top positions in AUL 3B and are

strongly hoping that this will be their lucky year.

In the 22 years since their founding, they have contested no less than ten cup

finals but have always come out second best. The season of 1976/77 was doubly

frustrating: they were runners up to Sunbeam in the Third Division League and

lost the final of the Third Division League Cup to Mayfield.

In the early years, Glenview consistently finished high up in their leagues

and rapid progress was made from the third to the first division. For a while

the club fielded two sides, the second known as Glenview Utd but, since 1985,

has been represented by just one team which plays its home games at

Knocknaheeny 3, sharing the pitch with Central Rovers and Blarney Street


This season's title contenders are captained by Declan McCarthy and the rest

of the northsiders' panel is: Darren Ahern, Glen Ahern, Philip O'Donovan,

Maurice Scanlon, Dave Broderick, Aidan Byrne, John Byrne, Tommy Byrne (leading

scorer, 12 goals to date), Ger Brady, Cormac Daly (10 goals), Paul Farmer, Pat

Kelleher, Paul Taffy Lockyer (keeper), Conrad Lynch, Tom Lynch, Eric Mannix,

Richard Mannix, and Don O'Sullivan.

The founders of the club were Frank O'Flynn, Cormac O'Connor, and Sean

O'Connor, and the current committee is: Vince Murray (chairman), founder

Sean O'Connor (secretary), Declan McCarthy (treasurer), and Robin Frawley.

Frawley fills a traditional role in Glenview; club captain is his title and

his function is to liase between the committee and the players. The selection

committee is Leslie Hill, Seamus Mannix, and Tom Broe.
