|Senior Club Championships|
The GAA club under Warwickshire County Board in Coventry, England, is named after the Four Masters club in Donegal. That club was unable to register as a Donegal Club but reserved the Four Masters name.
Tom Conaghan who managed the Four Masters to two county championships in 1982 and 1984 went on to manage the county team during the late 80s. He managed Donegal to the 1989 Ulster Final which they lost in a replay to Tyrone.
The club has more All Stars Awards than any other club in the county, Donal Monaghan winning one in 1974 the year he was Man of the Match against Down in the final of the Ulster Senior Football Championship, Joyce McMullan winning one 1990, Paul Durcan winning one in 2012 and Karl Lacey winning four in 2006 and 2009 at corner back and 2011 and 2012 at centre-half back. He also won the GAA GPA Player of the year award in 2012.
After the 2012 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final, Four Masters organised the homecoming for the victorious Donegal inter-county team.
