The Randal Óg Gaelic Athletic Association club was founded in 1953,and is located in Ballinacarriga, County Cork, Ireland, just outside Dunmanway in the South West of Cork. The club currently competes at Junior B in both hurling and Gaelic football. A book entitled "Finding Fifteen, The History of Randal Og Hurling and Football Club" was published in 2007 to mark the fifieth anniversary of the founding of the club. The club combines with Dohenys at underage levels of competition. Randal Og is part of the Carbery division of Cork GAA.
The club was founded in 1953, and the club's first major success came in that year with the winning of the Junior B Football title. The club's under-age team was to the forefront in 1956 when they won the West Cork Schools Shields title, and this team was trained by Dennis Cotter NT who continued to foster and train the youth of the area until his retirement in 1982. The Junior B Football title was won again in 1958 with what is reputedly the best tem ever fielded by the club. In 1959 the club was unlucky to be defeated in the semi-final of the A grade championship. In 1966, the club entered a hurling team for the first time and since then both hurling and football have been played in the club. In 1973, the club recorded its first double victory, winning the West Cork Under-21 B Football and Hurling championships. In 1976, the Junior B football title was won once again. In 1979, the Junior B hurling title was won for the first time. At the County Convention of Cork GAA in 1984, the cub successfully put forward a motion to set up a County Junior B Hurling and Football competition.
