Derrytresk Fir An Chnoic (Irish: Doire Treasc Fir a' Chnoic) is a Gaelic Athletic Association club in Tyrone. The club is based in the townland of Derrytresk near Clonoe in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
The club concentrates on Gaelic football, with the senior team currently competing in Division 3 off the Tyrone All-County Football League and in the Tyrone Junior Football Championship.
Although one of the smallest clubs in the county, with a catchment area of about 60 houses, Derrytresk won the 2011 Tyrone JFC, defeating Killeeshil 0-15 to 0-9. They went on to win the Ulster Junior Club Football Championship, defeating Monaghan's Cremartin 2-5 to 0-10. They won their All-Ireland semi-final against Kerry's Dromid Pearses (1-10 to 7 points), but narrowly lost the final in February 2012 to Naomh Pádraig of Galway.
