Trumera GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association hurling and gaelic football club in County Laois, Ireland.

The present Trumera GAA Club was formed at a meeting in Trumera National School in winter 1968.

An earlier version of Trumera was set up at a gathering of interested people in the 1920s. The team reached a county Junior semi-final against Mountmellick in 1927. They lost that game and the team faded out soon afterwards.

All through the seventies and eighties the club competed in the Laois Junior Hurling Championship without any great success. The nineties brought a change of fortune with the club reaching its first league final in 1990.

Since then, the club has won Junior C, Junior B, Junior A, and in 2004 the Laois Intermediate Hurling Championship and also reached the Leinster Junior Club Hurling Championship final narrowly losing out to Galmoy. The club competed in the Laois Senior Hurling Championship for 2 years 2005-2006 and had some good results before losing out to Clonad in the relegation final of 2006.

In 2004 Trumera won the Laois Junior "C" Football Championship and also reached the Division 5 ACFL Final.

The current President of the GAA, Liam O'Neill is a member of the Trumera club.
