Clanna Gael Fontenoy is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based at Ringsend, Dublin, Ireland, serving Sandymount, Irishtown, Ringsend and its surrounding areas.

The club was founded in 1968 through the amalgamation of the Fontenoys (founded in 1892) and Clanna Gael (founded in 1929).

The club's catchment area stretches from the inner city out to the inner suburbs and includes areas such as Dublin Docklands, Ringsend, Irishtown, Sandymount, Ballsbridge, Donnybrook and parts of Dublin 6.

Gael Fontenoy operates from Sean Moore Park where it has two full-size Prunty playing pitches with floodlights on both. The club also boasts an enclosed Astro Turf playing surface with a specially-constructed hurling wall. In addition Clanna Gael Fontenoy has access to playing pitches in nearby Ringsend Park where the club originally operated from. Other facilities at the club include a Lounge Bar, large function room, changing rooms, a club shop and a coffee shop.

The club has over 700 registered members and fields teams that compete in football, hurling and camogie at both juvenile and adult levels.

In 2016 our Ladies Intermediate team were Championship winners, our Junior E team won their Championship final and the U14 Girls won the Football Feile final. In 2015 our Camogie Senior 4 team won both the Shield and League finals while in 2014 our U14 boys won the Division 4 Feile football title.

A number of our members are part of the panel for Dublin teams including Rebecca McDonnell (Senior Ladies), Ella Thirroueiz (Ladies Minor) and Maria O'Dea (U16) with Karl Morgan and Colm O'Briain both part of the Dublin development squad.

Clanna Gael Fontenoy is currently sponsored by Dublin Port and Meaghers Pharmacy.
