Glenlara GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based around the rural area of Taur, Newmarket, County Cork, Ireland. The club plays Gaelic football in the Duhallow division competitions. [1][2] Glenlara GAA Club was founded in 1939 by D.A. Daly, P.Shine and R O'Keeffe. It took great courage on the part of those men to start a Club at the time, overshadowed as Glenlara area was by clubs such as Newmarket, Boherbue and Kiskeam. In total Glenlara picks its players from a radius of around two and half miles. In recent years Glenlara GAA have established a permanent home at the old school in Glashykinleen which is central to Taur and Glenlara area. The old Glashykinleen school is now their changing rooms and they have developed a playing pitch adjacent to this. Glenlara won the Duhallow Junior B Football Championship Final Group 2 in 2011 and again in 2013. [3]
