Club History

Dungarvan GAA Club was affiliated to the Gaelic Athletic Association on June the 1st 1885 – the first club in Waterford to do so. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, we have stayed the pace, and to-day we are the oldest – and I dare say the best – club in the county. We stand uniquely alone as the only club in the Decies to have won county championships in every grade from Under 12 up to senior in both codes.

It all began in 1890 when we completed the senior hurling and football double and today we proudly head the senior football role of honour with a total of twenty three county titles.

We repeated the senior double in 1908 and again in 1926 which also marked the first of five senior football title wins in a row. We completed a four in a row in senior football between 1945 and 1948, and more recently of course there was three in a row in senior football from 1990 to 1992.

The senior hurling championship has been won seven times, although it is more than a disappointment that the last of those seven titles was won all of sixty seven long years ago.

In 1983 and 1984 we won the minor double “on the double” again becoming the only club in the county to do so. Likewise in 2005, 2006 and 2007 we won the under 12 double “on the triple” again a feat not equalled by any other club within the county. In addition to this the club in 2008 has become only the second Waterford club to capture the county Feile titles in both hurling and football and all involved with both teams are greatly looking forward to representing the county in Cavan and Laois in the coming weeks.

With these numerous county titles came some of the greatest hurlers and footballers ever to don the Waterford jersey. To individualise would be a foolish road to go down, but suffice to say that in every era we gave players of the richest skills and talents to many great county teams.

By any criteria then our role of honour is a proud one and with some gifted young players now coming through at underage levels especially, the certainty is that many more titles will come our way in future years.
