The 2017–2018 All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship was the 48th annual gaelic football club championship since its establishment in the 1970-71 season. The winners receive the Andy Merrigan Cup.

Corofin (Galway) won their third All-Ireland, beating Nemo Rangers (Cork) by 2-19 to 0-10 in the final on 17 March 2018.

The defending champions were Dr Crokes from Kerry who defeated Slaughtneil of Derry on 17 March 2017 to win their 2nd title.


County Championships

Ireland's 32 counties play their county championships between their senior gaelic football clubs. Each county decides the format for their county championship. The format can be straight knockout, double-elimination, a league, groups, etc. or a combination.

Only single club teams are allowed to enter the All-Ireland Club championship. If a team which is an amalgamation of two or more clubs or a university team wins a county's championship, a single club team will represent that county in the provincial championship as determined by that county's championship rules (normally it is the club team that exited the championship at the highest stage).

Provincial Championships

Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster each organise a provincial championship for their participating county champions. All matches are knock-out and two ten minute periods of extra time are played if it's a draw at the end of normal time.


Fulham Irish, the winners of the London club championship, played Corofin, the winners of the Galway provincial championship, in a single match on 21 January 2018. The game was played in London and was referred to as a quarter-final. This was the final year for this arrangement – from 2018 onwards, the London champions played in the Connacht senior club championship.

Two semi-finals were played on two Saturday's in mid-February. The All-Ireland final was played in Croke Park on St. Patrick's Day, the 17th of March.

TV Coverage[edit]

TG4 continue to broadcast live and deferred club championship games each year.[1] Eir Sport also secured rights to broadcast live gaelic football and hurling club championship games. 2017 was the first time Eir Sport broadcast club championship games and will broadcast up to 30 live games. These games include rounds of county championships as well as county finals and provincial and All-Ireland club championship matches.[2]
