There is a history of the Gaelic Games in the Courtown - Ballygarrett area going back to the 1920’s. Réalt na Mara, which was based in Courtown, started life as a hurling club and competed on and off in the local championships for over a period of 40 years. Ballygarrett were more noted as a football club in the early years but around the 1940’s turned their attention to hurling and won District titles in the 1950’s. Réalt na Mara re-formed as a football club in 1979 and had immediate success, winning both the County Junior 'B' and Under-12 championships. In 1982 the old clubs of Réalt na Mara and Ballygarrett amalgamated to form the present-day club. We contested the Co. Junior Football Championship final in that first year but suffered defeat at the hands of Glynn-Barntown. During the 1980s, a strong under-age section was set up and many District and County Championships were won as well as Schools’ Rackard League titles. This provided a solid base of playing members for the years ahead. In 1984 the club made the decision to acquire its own playing pitch and eight acres of land in Ballinagam was purchased from the Kehoe family. (We had been very kindly given the use of this for many years) Over the next 25 years this has been developed into one of the finest grounds in the county. In 1990 Réalt Na Mara/Ballygarrett contested County Junior Championship finals, beating Oulart to win the football title and losing the hurling to Davidstown. In 1995 our present Clubhouse was completed consisting of sports hall, dressing rooms and an upstairs meeting room. In 1998 a Ladies Football section was set up. This has gone from strength to strength and in the space of a few short years has won adult and under-age League and Championship titles. Junior A championships were won in 2002 and 2006 while the intermediate title was captured in 2007. In 2000 and 2001 extra land was purchased and major developments were carried out on our pitches. In 2002 the Co. Junior 'A' Football Championship was captured for the second time following two titanic clashes with Kilmore and in 2004 history was made with the club winning the County Junior Hurling Championship for the first time. We now compete at Intermediate level in both hurling and football. The Camogie section was established in 2012, becoming the 35th Camogie club in County Wexford. Our Latest successes have been with our U21 football team, winning the 2015 and 2016 district championships.
