Club History

Club History:

Ahascragh-Fohenagh Hurling Club was born with the amalgamation of the neighbouring junior clubs of Ahascragh & Fohenagh. Due to the drop in player numbers in the nineties, officers from both clubs started talks on amalgamating at Juvenile level. The Juvenile club was founded in 1999. The first year was a very successful one with the u14’s winning theGalway Co. B final defeating Kilnadeema/Leitrim. In addition that year the Junior clubs sought permission to enter a Minor team. This team went on to win the 1999 Minor B title beating a fancied Beagh side. There has been continued success on the playing fields with the club winning U10, U12 & U14 titles over the years. The success of the Juvenile Club brought about the natural progression of amalgamation up to adult level. In 2002 the Ahascragh-Fohenagh Club became fully amalgamated. The club fields teams from U8 to U21, Intermediate & Junior B. The amalgamated club claimed its first adult title since 1999 winning the Junior C Co. Championship in 2009-10; winning U21C title in 2011 & in U21B in 2012.  In 2012, the Intermediate team was defeated by Killimordaly in the County Final. In 2013, they won the St. Judes All Ireland Hurling Sevens and they reached the County Intermediate Semi Finals losing out to Cappataggle. In 2014 there has been county title success at U16C grade where Ahascragh-Fohenagh defeated Ballygar. Ahascragh Fohenagh also contested the Intermediate Hurling Final in 2014 losing out to Cappataggle after a replay.
