Kilcormac/Killoughey GAA club is situated between Birr and Tullamore in the heart of County Offaly and was founded in late 1986. There were two parish teams prior to this – Kilcormac and Killoughey who often battled out against each other in championship hurling and football. The two teams had previously played together as Na Piarsaigh in the 1970s at adult and underage level but split at adult level and returned to the two separate parish teams in the late 1970s.
Kilcormac/Killoughey have enjoyed rich success at all underage level highlighted by winning a five in a row in both Minor and U21 hurling in the mid 1990s. However senior success eluded the club during the period with numerous semi final defeats and county final defeats in 2002, 2007 and 2009. In October 2012, history was made when Kilcormac/Killoughey defeated St Rynagh’s by 2-16 to 2-12 to secure a first ever county final for the club. A Leinster title followed a couple of months later with victory over Wexford’s Oulart-the-Ballagh in the final before losing out to St Thomas’ from Galway in the All-Ireland Final on St Patrick’s Day 2013. Kilcormac/Killoughey defeated Birr in October 2013 to secure their second title and two weeks ago, they completed the three in a row of Offaly Senior Hurling Titles with a 2-18 to 1-9 victory over St Rynagh’s and the team has now remained unbeaten in the Offaly Championship for the three successful years from 2012 to 2014. Kilcormac/Killoughey also had success in adult football in the past couple of years winning the Junior and Intermediate titles back to back in 2012 and 2013 and were a dual senior club in 2014. Kilcormac/Killoughey have pitches and facilities in both Kilcormac and Mountbolus and in 2013, a new state of the art Clubhouse and Dressing Rooms was officially opened in Kilcormac by Uachtarain Cumann Luthcleas Gael, Liam O’Neill.
