Kilglass Gaels Ladies Club was formed in 1999 under the stewardship of Gerry King (Chairperson), and Noreen Corcoran (Secretary) and took part in the U-14 Championship. From those humble beginnings, Kilglass Gaels Ladies have developed into a Club that has achieve tremendous success at all grades from U-12 to Senior. In 2000 we competed at U-12, U-14 and U-16 level. We competed at Minor level for the first time in 2002 and at Adult level in 2003.
The first silverware came in 2003 winning the Minor 9-a-side Championship. This paved the way for a number of positive years for the Club, winning numerous underage titles. The highlight came in 2007 when the Minor Ladies created history by winning the first Division 1 Minor Title for the Club. This was followed by a second title in 2008 and runners-up in 2009.
In 2003 the first adult team took to the field against an experienced Eire Óg outfit who were favourites for the county title. the young ladies from Kilglass showed no fear and went on to win the game and set up a county final appearance with Michael Glavey’s, a game which ended in a draw but unfortunately Kilglass fell short in the replay. The breakthrough came in 2006 winning the Junior A title against title favourites Kilbride. 2007 was another great year for the adult team winning the Intermediate title which catapulted this young team into senior status. Things went from strength to strength as in 2008 we won the Senior Shield. In September 2009 those young ladies created history and a day that will surely live long in the memory of all Gaels from the parish, as they defeated the aristocrats of Roscommon Ladies football St. Brigids in the Senior Final in Kilbride. There were tears of joy all over the field and in the stand on that day as all those proud Gaels from Kilglass watched something extraordinary unfold in front of their eyes.
