Éire Óg, Inis GAA Club is a Gaelic Athletic Association club in Ennis, Clare, Ireland. The club plays both Hurling and Gaelic Football at all age levels.

Their last major achievement came on 14 November 2015 when they successfully defended their 2013 and 2014 Clare Under-21 Football Championship titles, defeating the West Clare amalgamation of Kilrush/Killimer by 0-07 to 0-05 at Hennessy Memorial Park, Milltown Malbay. This completed a historic first 'three in a row' to go with previous trebles in 1909-1911 (Senior Football), 1961-1963 (Minor Hurling), 1964-1966 (Under 21 Hurling) and 1992-1994 (Minor Football).

Prior to the official club formation in 1952, the Ennis Dalcassians represented the county capital.

The Ennis Faughs were an amalgamation of the club with local rivals Doora-Barefield. They competed together from 1944-1956 and 1994-1996 when there were not enough players available for two separate senior football teams.

When combined with their predecessor the Ennis Dalcassians, Éire Óg are the most successful club in Clare at senior level. A combined total of 33 county titles have been won by the capital town, 15 Senior Hurling titles (1990) and 18 Senior Football titles (2006).

Some of the more well known hurlers to have played with the club include Seamus Durack, Stephen McNamara, Colin Lynch (transferred to Kilmaley in 1998) Davy O'Halloran and Shane O'Donnell.
