Donaghmore/Ashbourne Ladies Football club was founded in 1998. Greg Twomey was elected first Chairperson. In its first year it catered for one adult team which was trained by Alan Bermingham. In 2003 our adult ladies, under the management of Martin Mannering, Tom O’Shaughnessy, Ray Lawton and Ger Moran won the Junior ‘B’ final and were promoted to Junior ‘A’. The following year saw our ladies being drafted into Intermediate as due to a lack of teams Junior ‘A’ and Intermediate were combined. Two years later in 2005 our ladies went on to win the Intermediate Championship, making history by being the only team in the Club to have ‘Senior’ status. By now, Donaghmore/Ashbourne Ladies Football Club was thriving and had won a number of Division 1 County Championship titles including u10s, u12s, u14s, u16s and Minor.
Currently, in 2019, Donaghmore/Ashbourne GAA Ladies Football Club offers coaching and age appropriate competition for all levels from our ‘Little Ladies’ at u8 up to and including our Adult Ladies where we field multiple teams.
