Founded in 1975 by a dedicated group interested in playing and promoting soccer in the locality, the club has gone from strength to strength enjoying considerable success along the way.
There has also been significant success off the pitch as well with the club’s dream from its infancy of owning their own pitch and dressing rooms being realised in 1996. This was followed by its AstroTurf pitch facility in 2008 and floodlights added after that continuing to grow the facility.
Park United AFC is built on solid foundations not only in terms of its grounds and complex but also in terms of its players and management structure. During the national school term of September to June they run an academy on Saturday mornings from 11am-12.15pm. Its hugely popular and well attended by well over 100 children (Boys & Girls). The club have grasped the concept that soccer at an early age is about honing kids individual skills and fostering a love for the game.
The club cater for competitive age groups of boys and girls starting from U11 – U16. We field a team in each one of these categories and have 20 children in each panel. This is followed by a youth team which is U18, a junior and senior team playing in Cork AUL.
