We Love Hurling
Carey Faughs are a hurling club based in the very North of Antrim in the village of Ballyvoy. We are the current holders of the Antrim Intermediate Hurling Championship and Countess of Antrim Cup. We compete in the Antrim Senior hurling championship, Division 2 All County Hurling league, and North Antrim Feis cup at senior level. At Junior level we compete in the McCaughan Cup, North Antrim Junior League, and the North Antrim Junior Feis.
The Club was founded in winter of 1903 by Dennis Maguire and Patrick Moore assisted by the local priest Fr Eardly and in our first season claimed the Shield of the Heroes by winning the Senior Feis and now can be found on the club crest. The club has won three Antrim senior Championships in 1906, 1916 & 1923, three Antrim Intermediate Championships in 1990, 2002 & 2021 and two Antrim Junior Championships in 1983 and 1999.
In 2001 we amalgamated with our neighbours Glen rovers Armoy to form Glenshesk which gave our juvenile players the chance to play competitive hurling winning many titles along the way. Many of the hurlers produced by Glenshesk play for our seniors today.
Naomh Padraig (North Antrim) was born in 2015 as our other neighbours Robert Emmets Cushendun joined the amalgamation of Glenshesk and more recently St. Brigid’s Cloughmills to give our youth within each community, the chance to play our beautiful sport at underage level.
Naomh Padraig has started up a camogie team which is a great addition to the club, giving young girls in the community the opportunity to represent Carey in a unique way.
We are proud to be a parent club of Naomh Padraig and are looking forward to seeing each player wear green and white someday.
