Home Farm F.C. is well known in Ireland for its inane ability to promote youngsters through its youth system to represent the Republic of Ireland internationally. Footballers like Richard Dunne, Ian Harte and Graham Kavanagh are just a few of the examples who came through this famous club. Once a club that featured in the League of Ireland, after several mergers this club has become a youth club with the specific aim of creating the next generation of Irish sportsmen.
The club was founded in Dublin in 1928, playing its first season of football in shirts that were purchased at a jumble sale. The logo is a farmer sowing seed by hand, representing what the managers and coaches have tried to do with the players over the years – nurturing young talent, and watching them grow.
