Barryoe GAA club is a Gaelic football and Hurling club in the parish of Barryroe in County Cork, Ireland. It draws its players from the villages of Courtmacsherry, Butlerstown, Lislevane and surrounding areas. The club participates in the south west Cork (Carbery) division of Cork and operates at Intermediate A level in hurling and Junior A in football.

History[edit]

The Barryroe Club was founded in 1892 and thus is one of the oldest in the Carbery GAA division. Like many other clubs it has gone out of existence for various periods. Since it was reformed in 1961, however it has gone from strength to strength with its dedication to under age affairs paying rich dividends. Several Junior A Hurling titles plus a number of minor and Under-21 Championships have been won. Most of its successes have been in hurling.

Barryroe won their seventh West Cork Junior A Hurling Championship on Sunday the 9 September 2007 in Timoleague defeating Newcestown by 3-12 to 0-6. They followed this up with wins over Erin's Own and Kinsale to reach their 2nd County Final. In this final they defeated fancied Charleville by 2-19 to 2-13 to win the Cork Junior 'A' Hurling Championship for the first time. The club have participated in the Intermediate A since 2008.
