Club History

Whitechurch GAA Club was first established in 1904 to represent the eastern half of Blarney parish. After some years the troubled times saw its demise.

In 1959 the club was revived in football as a sister club to Blarney hurlers. Then in 1984 hurling was revived. From 1999 until 2011 the Club was joined with White’s Cross with the latter focused on football. During this time, there was some success in the form of an occasional B grade city hurling championship success.

At the beginning of 2012, after some considerable debate, Whitechurch reverted to being an independent dual club. The Club has represented Cork in the national Féile competition (for under 14s) on 3 occasions (2011 in football and 2014 + 2016 in hurling). Whitechurch GAA Club is proud of wining 9 county championship titles, all in recent years since becoming an independent club - 8 in hurling and 1 in football). 2016 was a tremendous year for the Club in hurling with the Féile A title, a county championship in under 16 and the first ever county championship at adult level in Junior B. The team built on this success and went on to win the Munster and All-Ireland club titles in 2017.

The Club is based in the Whitechurch Community complex where in recent years we have developed two new pitches, changing rooms and a hurling wall to cater in the best possible way for the youth of the area. We now excellent GAA facilities in place and the priority from now onwards will exclusively be focused on developing players, teams and coaches so that as a Club we become the best that we can be.

By continuing to raise the bar in all aspects of Club activities and harnessing the local talent we can continue to have many “firsts” for the Club. We must set our sights on higher grades and more success while maintaining the Club and Whitechurch community spirit.
