The ‘Cashel Gaelic Club’ was founded in 1888 after a few abortive earlier attempts. The first chairman was Dr. Tom Wood. One of the rules of the new club was that the members pay one penny per week to meet the expenses. The new club, later Cashel King Cormacs, played in the South or Mid divisions until 1930, when the West division was formed. Hurling is the main game in the club, but football is also played.
A number of club players have played with the county since Jack Gleeson became the first to win a senior medal with Tipperary in 1937. In 1991 Cashel won the county senior title for the first time and have won county titles in other grades of hurling and football as well.
