History[edit]

Football has been played in the parish of Cill na Martra in the Múscraí Gaeltacht since the foundation of the GAA in 1884 and before. The first recorded victory of the club occurred in 1887 in a 21 a side match versus the team of Ballinagree.

From then on until the re-establishment of the club in 1978, football had been played on an irregular basis. Since 1978 the club has gone from strength to strength achieving wins Under 12, 13,14,15,16, minor, Under 21, Junior B and Junior A grades.

The club has been playing at the intermediate grade in Cork since 2004.

2012 has been a special year with Cill na Martra being successful in winning the East Region Under 14 and 16 titles in League and Championship. It's U14s made the County final and our U13s, U12s and Minors all made East Region finals, only to miss out.

The crowning achievement in 2012 was the feat of the Under-16s winning County League and Championship, not losing a game in the process.
