HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1959 as a result of a merger between two clubs, Eoghan Ruadhs & St. Comans. The club is a successor club to the numerous clubs that represented the Roscommon town area in the decades prior to this.

Prior to the development of its current club grounds at Lisnamult in the early 2000s, the club was based at Dr Hyde Park. In 2019 the club celebrated its 60th anniversary with the opening of new changing rooms at its Lisnamult grounds.[1]
