Brief History

Naomh Mairtin Ladies GFC was founded in 1991

In 1996 the ladies achieved their first major success when they won both the Under-16 championship and the Division 2 League.

From 1996 the ladies competed in all underage competitions in the county and entered senior grade for the first time.

In 1999 the Naomh Mairtin Ladies were undergoing unprecedented growth and for this reason the ladies’ committee became an independent body within the club.

In 2000 the ladies’ growth translated into success as the intermediate team claimed the championship, beating St Patrick’s in the final. Captain Deirdre King lifted the trophy to mark the ladies’ first major success. This same year the ladies won the intermediate league again, beating St Patrick’s in the final.

Since then the ladies have competed at Under-12, 14, 16, Minor and Intermediate levels.  Most notable successes have been;

2002: Intermediate team won the championship

2003: Under-12 s won the county league final

2005: Intermediate team reached the final of the championship

2006: U12 & U14 championship semi-finalists

2014 & 2015: Intermediate team reached the final of the championship

2015: U16 & Minor teams won their championship shield competitions.
