The 2017 Intermediate Championship is perhaps best remembered for a bust up at the end of the Grattan Óg vs Legan Sarsfields match in Ballymahon on 22nd July 2017, which made national news at the time. Grattan Óg won 1-12 to 1-8, but the game ended in controversy after red and black cards were issued. A player was then struck by a bottle and a 40 person free-for-all ensued which resulted in a total of seven red cards, and both clubs being thrown out of the Intermediate Championship. Both clubs were later reinstated following an appeal.

The initial Intermediate Football Championship competition was discontinued after 1932 and did not restart until 1966. The Intermediate Championship which exists today can trace its uninterrupted origins back to 1966 and has been played every year since.

There was no Intermediate Championship competition from 1933 to 1965.

Edgeworthstown Young Irelands – Won
Mullinalaghta – Lost

📷 1932 Intermediate Championship Winner

Review of newspaper records for the 1932 Intermediate final did not indicate any scoreline. The Edgeworthstown club was renamed Young Irelands in late 1930. Hence the Edgeworthstown club that won the Intermediate Championship in 1932 is the same Edgeworthstown club that reached the Senior Championship final in 1931 (as Edgeworthstown Young Irelands) and won the Junior Championship in 1929 (as Edgeworthstown). This was a separate and distinct club from the modern day Mostrim club which formed in 1937.

Mullinalaghta 4-8
Clonbroney 1-2

📷 1931 Intermediate Championship Final

In January 1931 it was proposed at the County Board meeting to establish a third grade of football instead of two grades, leading to the implementation of the Intermediate Championship to encourage more football for clubs. The competition was run in 1931 and 1932, and discontinued thereafter. Intermediate competition would not re-appear until 1966 when the current Intermediate Championship began.

Additional Notes

Titles are consistently allocated to club units (not parishes). For temporary amalgamations, titles are allocated to the amalgamation and not assigned separately to the individual clubs within it. Where a new club is formed by two or more existing clubs uniting, the titles of the individual clubs prior to the union are kept separate from titles won by the new club unit.

The Ardagh Moydow club was formed when the clubs of Ardagh St. Patricks and Moydow Harpers united in 2019. Any titles of Ardagh Moydow are kept separate from those of the older Ardagh St. Patricks or Moydow Harpers clubs. (📷 Source) (📑 Read More)

Edgeworthstown Young Irelands (previously named Edgeworthstown Volunteers or Edgeworthstown) was a separate and earlier club in the parish to the current Mostrim club which was formed in the late 1930’s. Hence titles won by Edgeworthstown Young Irelands and titles won by Mostrim are kept separate. (📑 Read More)

Other sites or publications may display some of these title allocations differently, and that is their prerogative. On this website we aim to consistently allocate titles to club units and delineate, for historical accuracy, between newly formed clubs and previous club units.

Further details on title allocation logic used on this website can be found here.

The following changes to IFC titles resulted from research carried out from 2014 to 2021.

Was: None
Now: Mullinalaghta

Was: None
Now: Edgeworthstown Young Irelands

In January 1931 it was proposed at the County Board meeting to establish a third grade of football alongside the two existing grades of Senior and Junior. This led to the implementation of the Intermediate Championship to encourage more football for clubs. The competition was run in 1931 and 1932 (Mullinalaghta won in 1931 and Edgeworthstown Young Irelands won in 1932), but was discontinued thereafter.

Intermediate competition would not re-appear again until 1966 when the current Intermediate Championship began.

The names of all winners and finalists are displayed in the roll of honour in line with the name used by those clubs at the time of that final, to preserve that historic record.

The following name clarifications apply to IFC finalists down the years.

  • Mullinalaghta added St. Columbas to the club name in 1955.
  • Kenagh won the 1966 Intermediate Championship title as Kenagh St. Dominics.
  • Clonbroney adopted the Seán Connollys name in 1928 and appears in fixtures from 1935.
  • Edgeworthstown Volunteers became Edgeworthstown in 1910’s and added Young Irelands in 1930.
  • Forgney added St. Munis to their name in 1936. The St. Munis club is no longer in active adult competition.
  • Shroid Slashers was formed in 1958 and ceased participation in active GAA competition in the 2010’s.
  • Ardagh Moydow was formed in 2019 when Ardagh St. Patricks & Moydow Harpers clubs united. (📷 Source)
