Annaghminnon Rovers GFC (Ragaire Annachminnon CPG) is a Gaelic football club from the small community of Stonetown in the parish of Louth, in County Louth and are known as “the wee club from the wee county”. Following Louths 1957 All Ireland's success a need arose in the area to form a club and meetings took place in 1958 in the town land of Annaghminnon. The club was finally granted affiliation after numerous failed attempts in 1959. Annaghminnon has spent the majority of its footballing life in the junior ranks of Louth football with a brief two-year period in the intermediate grade in 2001 and 2002. The club football field, dressing rooms and community hall are situated in Stonetown, Dundalk, Co.Louth. Pairc Annachminnon was opened in 1987, the hall was erected in 1991, and new dressing rooms were constructed in 2008. From the years 2012-2018 the club regraded to the reserve divisions in order to preserve its existence. In 2019 Annaghminnon Rovers successfully regraded to the junior ranks. The club colours are white and red (white jersey with red hoop). Main sponsors are Cluskeys Restaurant, Connollys Garage, Leegans Bar and Gilmores Commercial Vehicle Centre.
