It is now 32 years from the time when Waterford Institute of Technology GAA club was founded. Since its inception WIT’s GAA club has gone from strength to strength. In 1981 it consisted of one Hurling team playing in Division 3. Currently it has eighteen teams competing in twenty eight competitions each year. Today our hurling, men’s football, ladies football and Camogie teams all compete at the top level of their respective competitions and have tasted great success down through the years. The club has always strived to provide as many games for as many students as possible, thus involving the maximum number of students. This policy has been so successful that teams from WIT have won a total of 102 titles, including: Division 1 Hurling titles, Fitzgibbon cup trophies, Fresher 1 and Fresher 2 All-Irelands, Ashbourne Cup, Purcell Cups, Division 1 Leagues and numerous Men’s and Ladies Football titles. In fact since its foundation the club has won at least one major title every year. Recent successes include winning the Fitzgibbon cup in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2014, the Ashbourne cup in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 and the Giles cup in 2011. This has made WIT one of the most successful third level clubs over the past decade.

Waterford Institute of Technology’s GAA Club is now amongst the largest and most successful in the third level sector. It has over 800 active members and continues to grow. It has been a role model for many colleges and without a doubt will continue to show leadership in the third level sector. The club intends to continue its proud tradition and remain one of the country’s leading GAA clubs in the third level sector.
