About The Club

MSB AC has a mission to support and develop as best we can athletes of all ages and abilities across all disciplines within our sport. Our aim being to contribute positively to increasing physical activity levels and to developing athletes to perform to the best of their ability at local, national and international level.


Inspiring the local population of all ages and abilities to be active, healthy and to perform through participation in athletics


Metro St. Brigid's Athletics Club (MSB AC) is a community-focused athletics club steeped in almost a century of rich history. MSB was formed through the merging of two successful Dublin athletic clubs in 1993, Metropolitan Harriers and St. Brigid's AC. In the 30 years since our merger as MSB, we have grown from strength to strength. Currently we have over 500 members with thriving juvenile, junior, senior and masters’ sections.

MSB AC is built on strong core principles of serving the athletics needs of the local area by helping all members reach their athletic potential through active participation in athletic activities.  We achieve this through supportive and welcoming training environments made possible by our team of dedicated, voluntary coaches. We welcome athletes of all abilities and embrace members of all ages from 8 to 80 and beyond.

We are proud of our rich heritage in athletics and excited for our future as we begin a new chapter with the opening of our new state-of-the-art track facility in our home at the Porterstown Recreational Hub.


We welcome all new and existing members to join us on our exciting journey as an athletics club.
