History[edit]

Kilrossanty was founded in 1885 and took part in the first Waterford Senior Football Championship that year.[5] The club reached its first final in 1886 and reached the finals again the following year, before winning its first title in 1888, without recording a single score against them. Kilrossanty won fifteen Waterford Senior Football Titles. They hold the distinction of being the Waterford club to have held on to their senior status the longest without relegatoion to intermediate ranks.[6] On winning the junior title in 1937, Kilrossanty was promoted to the senior grade, where they have remained ever since.[7]
