Knocknagree GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in the village of Knocknagree in the North West of County Cork and is situated approximately one mile from the border with Kerry. Knocknagree is officially in the parish of Rathmore with the majority of this parish in Kerry putting Knocknagree in front line when it comes to Cork-Kerry rivalry. The club plays Gaelic football in the Duhallow division competitions and their first team competes in the Duhallow Junior A Football League and Duhallow Junior A Football Championship
The GAA is very strong in the community. Thanks to extensive volunteer work and generous local support and sponsorship Knocknagree GAA club can boast of having one of the best venues in the area. The main pitch was professionally floodlit in 2006. In 2007 it hosted the first Duhallow Junior A Football Championship final to be played under lights. Ballydemond were victorious over Dromtarriffe on the occasion.
The club crest was designed in 2002 by a local artist. It features a horse's head superimposed against a hill. A traditional Irish fiddle is in the left upper corner and an open book in the right upper corner. These are reminders of Knocknagree's musical and literary heritage. A Blackwater bridge is featured in the lower foreground to symbolise the club's border location. Significantly the leaping salmon faces the Cork side of the border.
On the 19th September 2015 Knocknagree bridged a 24 year gap to win their eleventh Duhallow Junior A Football Championship, beating Lyre in a replay by a scoreline of 1-12 to 0-04. It went a long way towards making up for the disappointment of the previous year, when they lost the decider narrowly to Millstreet.
