Coill Dubh HC

Coill Dubh Hurling Club is a hurling club in County Kildare, winner of ten senior hurling championships. Founded in 1957, club colours are red and white. Three Coill Dubh players, Seamus Malone, Tony Carew and Tommy Carew were chosen on the Kildare hurling team of the millennium.

Colm Byrne was selected on the Leinster hurling squad in 1997.

Coill Dubh was the largest Bord na Móna village built in Ireland and the only one on a green field site, and shortly after construction the GAA club was established in 1957 by Tom Murtagh from Longford and Vinny O¬íRourke from Leitrim. The club almost went out of existence in the early 1980s but came to dominate hurling in Kildare in the 1990s.

From 1990 to 2005 the club contested the senior hurling final on every occasion bar 1992.
