The smallest club is easy.

Go to the smallest county - Louth

The smallest club in Louth - Annaghminnon Rovers GFC 1959 "The wee club from the wee county"

Division 6 with about 30 members (which includes all committee and players)

Most of the committee i.e secretary, vice chairman, vice secretary, PRO play football still

No underage and living on a year to year basis. Some lads are playing from the mid 90's still and haven't missed a season.

The GAA is still alive.

There is a wee club near Castleblayney called Oram. The legend Big Tom McBride played for them in his younger days.

From uibhfhaili.com forum

Tubber is unknown, disputed. Only people from Tubber know. Ballycommon is another, ad is Ballinagar.
These are definite figures. Some clubs may slot in on this list, but there's no confirmation on the clubs' respective figures. Here's the bottom 6 of the definite figures in Offaly.

Kilclonfert (364)

Seir Kieran (492)

St Brigids (524)

Lusmagh (roughly 600)

Clonmore Harps (608)

Shannonbridge (635)

Good shout, but I would say Kilbeacanty would give them a run for their money. Tiny parish, and only really a bend in the road. Lost Niall Donoghue in 2014 (RIP). Cant think of a smaller hurling club in Galway.....Maybe St Colomubas, in a suburb of Galway city but has Liam Mellows grounds practically in the same townland it's that close.


Rynvile would be the most rural. Even more rural than Oileain Arann!
