The yew tree (Eo in Irish) in abstract form is central to the crest design, set in front of the cross, reflecting the church (Cill in Irish) and the spiritual community heritage. The name of the parish in Irish (Killoe derives from Cill Eo, Church of the Yew Tree) is set above the Irish form of the county, An Longfort. The establishment of the GAA in Killoe can be traced back to 1889.
The official GAA insignia, which was introduced in 2009, is at the base of the design. The colours of white and green that dominate the crest are those worn by Killoe Senior, Minor & Ladies Club teams. For branding purposes (jerseys, training gear, flags, letterhead etc.), the respective name of ‘Emmet Óg’, ‘Killoe Óg’ or ‘Killoe Ladies’ can be placed below the crest in either script or scroll design.
This modern Killoe GAA crest replaced the previous design from the early 1990s. The new design first appeared in June 2012 and was gifted to the club to appear on Killoe jerseys during the Senior Championship in August 2012. Today the crest appears on Senior, Junior, U21, Underage & Ladies jerseys, flags and other club merchandise.
