History

The Men's Soccer Club is one of the oldest on campus having participated in the Collingwood Cup since 1914 and member of the Irish Universities Football Union (IUFU).  We partake in the Collingwood Cup (Seniors), Harding Cup (Freshers) and occasionally the Crowley Cup under the IUFU intervarsity competitions.

The club is also a proud member of the local Galway and District League (www.galwayfa.ie) since its formation. We have had a lot of success recently in Galway League winning a number of Divisional League and Cup titles. 

More recently we joined the Colleges and Universities Football League (CUFL) from its formation and have had considerable success in the CUFL.
