History

Iveleary Football Club has a Long and Credible History


As well as having the distinction of being one of the oldest clubs in the country Iveleary can claim the proud record of having affiliated a team annually since the foundation of the G.A.A. seventy five years ago. In fact the game was played in the parish for many years prior to the foundation of any organised competitions.

As a result the first Iveleary team captained by the great Jack O'Sullivan, Inchigeela was one of the foremost teams competing in the early competitions. At that time all teams were of the one grade and composed of 21 players on each team. Many a hectic game was contested against such legendary teams as Dohenys, Clondrohid, Kilmurry, Barryroe, Kilmacabea and Macroom.
