Ilen Rovers GFC

Ilen Rovers is a Gaelic football club in County Cork, Ireland. The club is affiliated to Cork GAA and Carbery GAA divisional boards. The farming and fishing community of Ilen Rovers hails from the estuary of the River Ilen, the West Cork river that flows through Skibbereen before entering the sea near the fishing port of Baltimore, the gateway to the islands of Sherkin, Cape Clear and Heir. The club crest depicts this rural geographical area showing the Beacon to the south and Kilcoe castle to the west with the Ilen flowing between and the sea beyond.

The Club was founded in 1973 and so comprises players from the parish of Rath and the Islands and the parish of Aughadown, the two parishes that bound the river estuary. The club had their most successful run in the Cork senior championship in 2007 when they got to the final but lost out to Nemo Rangers by 3 points.
