History[edit]

The club derives its name from the river Moyle that runs through the Parish and joins the Anner. The club was founded in 1928. Previous to this since the 1800s various teams represented the Parish in local leagues most often the Clonmel League. Kilsheelan GAA club have recorded games played against Powerstown in the early 1900s. Apparently both teams were quiet strong.

Soon after in 1991 they won their first South senior football title and in 1995 the most momentous of all, their first ever County senior football championship final win.
