St Anne’s Rathangan GAA club has been active since the beginning of the GAA in 1884. The club first experienced a real level of success in 1966 when they won the junior football county title followed by the senior title in 1968.
The club experienced quite a lot of success with the underage teams in the eighties and nineties in hurling and football which culminated in the club’s biggest ever success to date which was the great senior double in 2000 and a senior football title in 2001.
The club has experienced great changes within the last 20 years for the better as there has been a huge amount of development in buildings, pitches and new hurling facilities.
The youth has always played an important part for the St Anne’s Rathangan GAA club and with the amalgamation of the schools in 1971 things got even better for the club as they won several Rackard league victories and even more senior titles in football in 2012 and 2014.
In February 2018 the history of the GAA in the parish was celebrated in the book “October 2000” by Jim Berry.
In 2019, St Anne’s branched out further and started playing rounders at underage as they entered both boys’ and girls’ rounders teams in the All-Ireland Feile in Cork.
