St Teresa’s was founded in 1963. The club enjoyed almost immediate success securing 3 county minor titles in the years 69-71. The success of these teams fed into the newly formed senior setup. The senior team enyoyed a meteoric rise through the All county football divisions rising from div 6 to div 2 in successive years. Following a narrow defeat in the replayed county final of 1976, the club finally secured their first Senior Countytitle beating local rivals St Johns. Under Br Ennis, the team went onto to contest 4 more senior finals. However they were unable to repeat the success of 1979. An intermediate hurling title was secured in 1977.
the early 80’s focus turned to securing a permanent home on the Glen Road. In 1992
a 100 year lease was signed for A 10½ site. In 1998 two grass playing pitches
were opened by Jimmy Barry Murphy and the Cork hurling team, named McDonell/Doherty Park. Inevitably, whilst most efforts were concerned with providing facilities,
the playing side was neglected. Despite securing an intermediate football title
in 1993, the senior football team slipped into Div 3 at the turn of the
millennium. . It was left to the hurlers to keep the club name prominent. In
2005, a Junior hurling title was annexed. The feat was repeated in 2008. Not to
be outdone, the footballers secured the 2009 Junior title to ensure a return to the intermediate ranks. St
Teresa’s returned to division 2 in 2012 after a 14 year absence.
A celebration of 50 years in 2013, was capped with acclaimed success on the playing fields. In
the last club game to be played at the old Casement Park, St Teresa's defeated local rivals Rossa in
the Beringer Cup final. The senior ladies team won their first silverware with an emphatic win
over St Comhgalls in the Junior B Championship. The playing season was rounded off when the
senior footballers defeated Portglenone by a single point in the IFC final at Glenavy.
