St. Finbarr's National Hurling and Football Club is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in the Togher area of Cork city, County Cork, Ireland.

St. Finbarrs, with the distinctive royal blue and gold jersey, and are the only club in Ireland to win All-Ireland club championships in both hurling and football. The club has won Cork County Senior Championships in every decade bar the first decade of this century. This proud record was almost upheld in 2009 when the club reached the final in the Cork County Senior Football Championship only to lose out by a point to Clonakilty.

1980 to 1982 represented a notable period in club history, when it won three Cork County Hurling Championships in a row. This feat has not been repeated since.
