Rhode GAA Club was formed in 1888 and Rhode GAA is legendary
as once written by Offaly GAA historian John Clarke in an article entitled “Rhode – The Triumphant Erigena” sums up what is the essence of Rhode GAA Club. Rhode GAA have won 27 senior football championships which is a record that no other small village in the county could boast. The first in 1900 and the most recent in 2016 sees Rhode dominances continue so much so that we are now only one title behind county leaders Tullamore. The history of Offaly football is lavishly adorned with the contributions from Rhode. There were great battles with Rhode and Tullamore in the 1920’s and early 1930’s, the razor sharp rivalry with near neighbours Edenderry through the years to the most recent dominance of Offaly football 1998 to 2016. Rhode’s impact on Gaelic football has not confined to the domestic scene. Every Offaly success has brought a generous contribution from Rhode and the representation of five of the victorious panel of 1971 and 1972 this was the highest of any club. More success followed through the early 1980’s with another four representing the club in 1982 and returned again in 1997 and 1998 with Leinster and National Football League wins.
