Knockmore is a GAA club based in Mayo and was a relative latecomer to the ranks of the Gaelic Athletic Association. Established in 1958 it wasn’t until 1960 that it was registered.
The clubs rise has being meteoric. The club claimed its first title in 1968 when it won the North Mayo junior championship. Within four years an intermediate title was won before the remarkable achievement of capturing the senior county and provincial championships followed only a year later. Today the club is testament to that early sense of purpose. Since gaining its senior status in 1972 the club has never lost this status and has won 8 county senior titles and 3 senior provincial titles. Since 1971 the club has won 8 Division 1 leagues. We have won divisional and county titles at all age groups; with last year’s U18 team winning the inaugural Connacht Championship.
With our excellent playing and ancillary facilities we cater for teams from U6 to Senior in both boys and ladies football. This year the club will have 4 adult men’s teams-U21, Junior C, Junior B and Senior.
The exploits of our club and its members are not just serving Knockmore but the wider G.A.A. too. The club has 4 players on the current Mayo Senior panel, Kevin Mcloughlin, Shane McHale, Darren McHale and Keith Ruttledge. Colm Reape is on the Mayo U21 panel
Cormac Reape is on the G.A.A. National Youth Committee, Sean McEil is Mayo’s Central Council delegate and their roles shine a light on another strand of the contribution our club makes to the Association as a whole.
As a club we committed to promoting Gaelic Games and we are confident the club will continue to go from strength to strength both on and off the field of play in the years ahead.
