The Patron Saints
The Patron Saints (est. 2002) are a voluntary group of fans with a close and special relationship with the club, dedicated to making Saint Patrick’s Athletic the best club in Ireland, by helping to develop the club both on and off the pitch, improve the match night experience in Richmond Park and to preserve the heritage and tradition of our great club.
The Aim of the Patron Saints is to support any project that will benefit Saint Patrick’s Athletic, the Supporters or the surrounding area and to enhance the spectator facilities and match night experience.
Over the years the Patron Saints have contributed over €200,000 (up to end of 2021) to various projects in and around Richmond Park and this has been appreciated many times by the board of Saint Patrick’s Athletic and the fans.
