Glin Rovers F.C. was founded in 1968. In the club's early years it played its home games at St. Joseph's GAA pitch in Glin but the club acquired its own pitch in 1987.
From humble beginnings with a single team formed from £300 raised at a church gate collection to 22 competitive teams and a running cost of €22,000 per year the club has come a long way.
Amongst our clubs greatest honours was winning the Desmond Cup on 3 occasions. The first was in 1977 then again in 2009 and most recently 2016. We have also won the Desmond League for the first and only time in 1986.
