It depends on what you are looking for? If you just want to play the odd game for the seconds or thirds then the clubs named above will suit your needs. Castleknock have a third team playing division 8 afaik. Training etc will be minimal but there will be plenty of games.
If you want to take it a bit more serious but are not fit etc to play at intermediate or higher then I suggest a club that's relatively new or who's first team is down the ranks. Erin go bragh are based in clonee/littlepace and their 1st team are in junior c championship afaik. Standard isn't that bad and you will get 20 games minimum a season.
Then there is civil service hurling who have fallen Down the ranks it seems since my day. They wee intermediate then but seem to be junior b now. Higher level than Erin go Bragh but you may not get the same comradery due to players being scattered. Go for it. Hurling is very well organised in Dublin and the standard is a lot higher than most counties. You get loads of games and there is a great social scene.
