Aghabullogue have a long tradition of hurling. In 1890, they won the Cork Senior Hurling Championship. By the rules of the GAA at that time, this victory allowed Aghabullogue to go on and represent Cork in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship. They later collected a Munster title following a victory over Kerry. There was controversy in the subsequent All-Ireland final when an Aghabullogue men left the field after one of the players had his toe broken by a Wexford man’s hurley. At a meeting the following week of the Gaelic Athletic Association’s Central Council it was agreed to award Cork the All-Ireland title.In 1910 they won the Cork Intermediate Championship and in 1991 won the Cork County Junior Hurling Championship after a thrilling replay where they defeated Aghada.
Despite their long hurling history, Aghabullogue have only had a football team since the 1970s. 1979 was the first year in which they entered a junior team in the Mid Cork football championship. However, they have had more recent success in football than in hurling, and won the 2004 Cork Junior A Football Championship. They went on to reach the Munster Junior Club Football Championship final, but lost by 2-13 to 3-04 against Kerry GAA team Finuge.
