Carbery GAA are a divisional team from the south-west division of County Cork, Ireland, in ancient Carbery. They compete in the Cork Senior Football Championship. They competed in the Cork Senior Hurling Championship up to and including 2010. They did not enter a hurling team in 2011 but re-entered again in 2012 and 2013. The divisional board organizes local championships up to the level of Junior, and the winners of these championships in many cases proceed to compete to play in the championships organized by the County Board.

The division consists of 26 clubs from Bandon in the east to Bantry Blues in the west.

Players are chosen from all junior and intermediate teams in the division. There are a number of clubs in the division playing in the senior football grade, so these players can not be chosen.
