Tipperary GAA Club Focus - Moneygall 20th January 2022

Brief History of Club  

Representing Dunkerrin Parish, the origins of Moneygall GAA Club can be traced back to 1885, when a hurling team was formed in the parish and named after one of the townslands, Honeymount. Thomas Corcoran was one of the main driving forces behind the founding of ‘The Honeymounts’. Corcoran was very active in Tipperary GAA affairs, and would also go on to become the first chairman of North Tipperary County Council.

In the early years of the 20th century the club became known as Moneygall. The team qualified for three north senior hurling finals in 1915, 1916 and 1917, unfortunately losing the first two while the third was not played following a dispute. The first title won by the club was the 1919 north junior hurling championship, and was won again ten years later.

Jer ‘Darby’ Collison won an All Ireland senior medal with Tipp in 1916, becoming the first player from the North Tipperary division to do so. His brother Paddy ‘Major’ Collison along with Jack Kennedy would also win All Ireland medals in 1925. A number of Moneygall players also won county senior medals with Toomevara during this period, before the introduction of the parish rule in the 1930s.
