Oranmore Maree HC
The Oranmore Maree GAA Club was founded in 1967. The club was formed through a county by-law which ruled that there should be only one team per parish, previous to this Maree and Oranmore had teams. Maree wore green and black jerseys while Oranmore wore Black and Amber.

Oranmore won the Galway Intermediate Hurling Championship in 1950 beating Killimor 3-5 to 3-1 after a replay, Maree continued their clubs fine tradition by winning the Intermediate title in 1953 beating the highly fancied Craughwell 6-1 to 4-1.
