On Sunday, 25 October 1884, a meeting of the Moycarkey branch of the Irish National League was held in their committee rooms in Moycarkey; Rev. D. M. English was in the chair. Very Rev. John Bourke, who was the branch treasurer and a full committee, was present. The following resolution was passed unanimously: That, in order to join with the majority of our countrymen, in restoring of our own national pastimes, we call on the young men of this parish to form a branch of the Gaelic Athletic Association on Sunday, 1 November at 3 o'clock p.m. And so, at the same venue, on Sunday, 1 November 1885, exactly one year after the foundation of the G.A.A. in Thurles, a meeting of the young men of the parish was held for the purpose of forming a branch of the G.A.A. The following gentlemen were unanimously elected: Rev. J. Murphy, C.C., President; Mr. William Fogarty, Vice-President; Mr. John Molumby, Hon. Secretary; Committee: Messrs. Thomas O'Grady, John O'Brien, Patrick Molloy, James O'Grady (Graigue), Michael Shanahan, James Cahill and Daniel Wilson. The following resolutions were passed with acclamation: That we tender our sincere gratitude to our patriotic Archbishop, the Most Rev. Dr. Croke, Charles Stewart Parnell M.P. and Michael Davitt in patronising the ancient and historic pastimes of our people, some of whose only enjoyment was an everlasting round of labour. That we hail with delight the revival of our ancient games. Although we have suffered from emigration and oppression in this parish, yet Moycarkey can boast that they have never given up the ancient game of hurling. Mr John O'Brien proposed Mr Thomas O'Grady as captain of the club.


Years: 1884 – 1899Edit

The first Tipperary Hurling championship began in 1887 and Moycarkey did not have to wait long to claim their first title when a Tom O Grady captained team defeated Toomevara in the 1889 county final, one goal and three points to one goal. From here there was no championship again until 1894, The Parish got back to winning ways almost straight away reaching the county decider in 1897 and again 1898 under the representation of the Horse and Jockey only to find themselves on the wrong side of two close games. The breakthrough finally arrived in 1899 when the horse and jockey under the leadership of Tim Condon won the county final defeating fellow parishioners Two Mile Borris in a replay. This Horse and Jockey team went on to represent Tipperary and win the All Ireland title for the county defeating Blackwater of Wexford in the Final.

Years: 1900 – 1919Edit

The turn of the century saw the emergence of Two Mile Borris as real power house in Tipperary Hurling with Ned Hayes as captain they bounced back from losing the previous year's county final to go on and Win the 1900 county championship and for the second year in row the All Ireland title for the county with a win over Desmonds of London in the Final. 1901 saw the turn of Ballytarsna and their captain Watty Dunne to represent the parish and they went on to win the county final against Lahorna De Wets on a score of 7.11 to 0.01. Ned Hayes and his Two Mile Borris men were back again 1903 and they captured the county title defeating Lahorna De Wets in the final and they repeated this feat again in 1905 defeating lorrah in the county decider. In 1907 the Mid Tipperary Championship began with Tom Semple's Thurles men winning the first three titles which meant it was 1910 before Moycarkey Borris claimed their first mid senior title; when Two Mile Borris ended the blues strangle hold on the title. Moycarkey Borris also claimed three mid junior "A" titles in this era with victories for Two Mile Borris in 1909, Horse and Jockey in 1912 and for Moycarkey in 1918.

Years: 1920 - 1939Edit

The 1920s started well for Moycarkey Borris when they claimed the mid title with a victory in 1920 and then went on to complete a three in row of titles from 1922 to 1924. Under the captaincy of John Joe Hayes from Ballyerk Moycarkey Borris were back in the county final in 1926 and after winning the mid title for the fifth time in the decade they went on to defeat Boherlahan 6.04 to 4.02 in a high scoring county final. If the 1920s were good times for Moycarkey Borris the 1930s were even better with six mid titles and 4 county titles claimed in the decade. The club dominated mid Tipperary in the early 30s winning five mid senior titles in a row from 1930 to 1934, a feat that would only ever be equalled once by any other club in the history of the mid championship. Moycarkey went on to lose the 1931 county final to Toomevara but it wasn't long before this great team with Phil Purcell as captain started to win county titles and in 1932 they did just that when they defeated Killenaule from South Tipperary 7.06 to 5.01. This victory was then followed up with another county title in 1933 when Moycarkey Borris defeated North Tipperary champions Borrisokane 1.07 to 1.00 in the county decider. The three in a row was completed in the golden jubilee year for the GAA in 1934 with a victory again over the North champions, this time it was Kildangan/Kilbarron who were defeated on a score of 3.06 to 2.03. Moycarkey had a new captain Paddy Ryan Sweeper in 1937 and they went on to claim the mid and county honours in this year with a 7.06 to 6.02 victory over West winners Cashel in the county decider. The club also had two titles in the mid junior no.2 championship in this time with victories for Two Mile Borris in 1936 and Graigue in 1939.

Years: 1940 – 1959Edit

In 1940 under captaincy of Tommy Kennedy Moycarkey Borris went on to win the mid title and also the county title with a victory once again over Cashel on a score of 4.07 to 4.02 in the county final. Moycarkey went on to add another mid title in 1943 but lost the county final to Annacarty from west Tipperary on a score of 4.03 to 2.04. This loss would see the end of a great era in the club as many of the players who had now won five county medals and eight mid medals in this time and had served the club for years would retire to make room for fresh talent to come through. Moycarkey Borris struggled to get a strong senior team going from here as many players preferred to play junior for their local area; this resulted in a number of mid junior titles coming to parish but at the cost of senior Hurling so much so that Moycarkey Borris had no senior team in 1954, but won mid and county junior honours and came straight back up senior for the 1955 championship. During this time the parish won five mid junior "A" titles in 1943, 45, 46, 52 and 54 and won Junior no. 2 mid titles with Littleton in 1941, Horse and Jockey in 1942, Two Mile Borris in 1957 and Moycarkey Borris in 1940 & 51.

Years: 1960 – 1979Edit

This period of the club's history started brightly with a first senior county final appearance in nineteen years against Thurles Sarsfields in the 1962 decider, but after a great performance by Moycarkey they lost by one point 1.07 to 1.06. This team bounced back to claim two mid titles in 1965 and 1967 and restore pride to parish and some of the players were still present when a third mid senior title was won in 1971. During this time it was decided that more emphasis would be put into under age hurling so to improve the fortunes of the club. This plan paid dividends straight away with the club winning mid under 21 "A" titles in 1962, 67, 71 and 72 and mid Minor "A" titles in 1968, 69, 72 and 76. County titles at minor level were won in 1968 and 1972 with John Ryan (M) and Michael Clohessy as the winning captains on those teams, the majority of these players would go on help Moycarkey Borris reclaim the Dan Breen in the following years. Junior "A" and junior no.2 titles were also won in this period with the "A" victory coming in 1960 and the no.2 arriving 1978. In 1963 the club made history by winning its very first football title with a win in the mid junior "A" football championship. This victory was followed up with a two in row a mid junior "A" football titles in 1969 and 1970 which meant the club would be playing intermediate football and in 1979 Moycarkey Borris won their first mid intermediate football title.

Years: 1980 – 1999Edit

The 1980s proved to be a very successful period in the club's history with five county titles and 17 mid titles won at adult level between different age groups in both football and hurling. Moycarkey after all their underage work in late 60s and 70s found themselves back in the big time when they won 1981 mid senior hurling final. This victory was built on and in 1982 the club led by Captain Jack Bergin retained the mid title and also ended its 42-year wait for a county senior hurling title with a victory over Roscrea in a replayed county final 2.12 to 0.11. This team also went on to make history and claim the club's first and only Munster club hurling title when they defeated Patrickswell of Limerick by one point on score of 1.09 to 0.11. Moycarkey Borris also won the 1984 county title when they defeated Lorrah form North Tipperary 2.08 to 0.09 to claim the club's 14th county senior hurling title. By winning this county final Moycarkey became the only club in country to win both the jubilee 1934 and centenary 1984 county senior championships. In 1985 Moycarkey also made history when the club's second team led by John Hackett won mid and county titles at intermediate level defeating Killenaule in the county decider. There were also titles won at mid junior "A level in 1982 and mid junior B" titles in 1982 and 1987. The underage success also continued with the minor team captained by Michael McKenna winning the county title in 1983. A mid under 21 "A" title in 1984 and minor "A" mid titles in 1981, 82, 83 and 86 were also won in the 80s to add to the roll of honour. In 1980 the club's footballers made their biggest ever breakthrough when they won the county intermediate football title with Harry Mulhaire as team captain, this meant that in 1981 Moycarkey would be playing senior football for the first time. The club also won another four mid intermediate football titles in 1980, 85, 86, 88 and junior "A" football titles in 1981 and 86. After the rush of titles won in the 80s the 90s were quite times for the club with just one mid junior "A" title coming in 1990 and one mid minor "B" title in 1998. In 1999 the club won its first adult county title in 14 years when the under 21 hurlers captained by Micheal Hassett took mid and county honours in the under 21 "B" championship defeating Kildangan in the county final. Moycarkey had similar fortune in football winning the under 21 "B" mid and county in 1997 along with mid minor "B" titles in 1995 and 1997.

Years: 2000 – 2019Edit

In 2002 Moycarkey reached their first mid senior final in 12 years only to lose out by 2 points in a closely fought match, unfortunately the following year Moycarkey were relegated to intermediate level. While playing at this level the club won the mid intermediate final twice in 2005 and 2007 but lost the county final 3 years in a row. In 2008 Moycarkey Borris were back playing senior hurling, and in 2009 were entered in the All Ireland Seven a side championship played in Dublin. The team captained by Pat Carey went on to defeat fellow Tipperary club Kilruane Macdonaghs in the All Ireland final decider to claim the title for the first and only time in the club's history. Moycarkey won their first mid junior "A" hurling title in nineteen years when they won the 2009 mid championship and repeated this feat again in 2012. It was in 2013 that Moycarkey had their greatest achievement since the 1980s when the junior "A" hurlers captained by Phil Kelly claimed both mid and county honours defeating Knockavilla Kickhams in the county final. At minor level the club has been successful winning mid and county minor "A" titles in 2003 with David Sheppard as captain and 2018 with Max Hackett as captain and the 2007 mid and county minor "B" title with James Doran as captain. The club also won the 2005 and 2017 mid minor "A" championship. In December 2017 Chris McCullough and Niall Heffernan captained the under 21 Hurlers against all odds to claim the under 21 B mid and County Honours defeating Lorrah after extra time in a thrilling county final. In Football the biggest success so far this century was the winning of the county intermediate football championship in 2012 for the first time in 32 years. The team captained by Daniel Kirby won both mid and county titles defeating Upperchurch Drombane in both finals. The club added another Mid Intermediate Football title in 2017 and 2019, while also completing a historic four in a row mid titles in Junior "A" football from 2007 to 2010 and also won three junior "B" mid football titles in 2010, 2012 and again in 2013. At underage level the club claimed mid football titles with under 21 "B" in 2002, 2007 and 2016 and minor "B" in 2003.
