History[edit]

In 1935 a Drummullan side competed in the South Derry League. They soon however switched league to the East Tyrone League and stayed there until 1946. They won the 1941 Tyrone Junior Football Championship defeating Brackaville in the final. They re-entered the South Derry League in 1947, named Drummullan Sarsfields. In 1954 players from Drummullan and Killybearn reassembled to form Littlebridge Kevin Barrys and reached consecutive Derry Junior Football Championship finals in 1964 and 1965, but lost out to Greenlough and Glen respectively. They did however win the Derry Junior League in 1964.

Kevin Barry's folded in 1974 and amalgamated with St. Patrick's Windmill of Tyrone to form the current Ógra Colmcille club. They won the Junior League in their first year 1975. The current club's biggest success came in 2001 when they won the Derry Junior Championship defeating Ardmore in the final. 2000 saw the club open their new playing field and clubhouse. The club gained promotion to Intermediate football in 2004 after defeating Ardmore in a relegation/promotion playoff and also were runners up in the Junior Championship. However the club was relegated to Junior football the following season. In 2007 they won promotion to Intermediate football in Division 4 after beating local rivals Lissan in the Derry Division 5 Junior league final. Following promotion Ógra Colmcille remained comfortably in Intermediate football finishing mid table in Division 4 in 2008 and 2009. In 2010 the Derry County Board restructured the senior leagues and Ogra Colmcille found themselves competing in Division 2 in Derry and once again the Ógs comfortably retained their intermediate status for 2011.
