Trophies and Representative Players


Douglas Hall - in brief
Douglas Hall AFC was founded in 1971 and since then has grown from very humble beginnings to be one of the biggest clubs in Cork. Within the greater Douglas area, encompassing a population of over 7,000 in Grange, Donnybrook and Rochestown, we continue to provide football from Under 7 up to adult level.

Our Senior team is playing in the Munster Senior League, Premier Division and has been built on players progressing from our Schoolboy section. In our 2004/05 Senior panel, 16 players have played schoolboy football with the club out of a total panel of 19. The Seniors have steadily progressed and made a breakthrough in 2004/05 by qualifying for the FAI Intermediate cup Semi-Final.

Our previous best performance in the Intermediate cup was in 1994/95, when we qualified for the "last 10" in this competition and, as a result, also progressed to the open draw of the FAI Senior Cup, where we hosted and drew with Monaghan Utd., but lost the replay. In 2004/05, we had our first victory in the Senior Cup, defeating Moyle Park 2-0 in the first round, moving onto the Open Draw phase of the competition.

We also have two Junior sides - one affiliated to the Munster Senior League and the second with the Cork AUL. The Munster Senior League Juniors are a Premier Division team, mainly composed, again, of players who moved through the Douglas Hall ranks. Almost all of this team have played schoolboy football with the 'Hall. The AUL Junior side are playing in Division 1 of the AUL Junior leagues and have maintained this league status for a number of seasons.

Youths has been a very successful grade for the club, with a succession of trophies won in the early 2000's. This has, again, developed from our schoolboy section with players "graduating" to Under 17 and Youth ranks. We play our Youths football in the Cork AUL.

In recent years, we have seen a number of club players making breakthroughs at international level.

  • Colin Doyle, Ireland Under 17, 19 and 21
  • Mary Barrett, Ireland Under 17 and 19
