Carrigallen GAA Club came into existence in 1889 and were initially named after Mandeville, an MP for Mitchelstown, Co Cork who was associated with the Land League. The first recorded success for the club was in 1912 with victory over Cloone before the club disbanded two years later.
Football returned to Carrigallen in the 1920s with three clubs, Tully, Drumeela and Carrigallen competing in the area. Drumeela captured the first Championship for the parish in 1928 winning the Junior title. Tully was one of the greatest teams in the County from the mid 1930’s until the mid 40’s contesting six Senior Championship finals, winning the Senior Championship in 1945 while Carrigallen recorded a success in 1941. Carrigallen’s most recent appearance in a Senior Championship final was in 2009.
