Our Club Crest

Killoe derives from the Irish Cill Eo meaning Church of the Yew Tree. 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 heritage of the community. The name of the parish in Irish Cill Eo, is set above the Irish form of the county, An Longfort. Gaelic Games in the parish of Killoe can be traced back to 1889 and the foundation of the first club in the parish, and this is reflected in the design.

The GAA insignia is at the base of the Killoe Young Emmets and Killoe Óg crest design, while the LGFA insignia is at the base of the Killoe Ladies crest design. The colours of white and green that dominate the crest are those worn by all Killoe teams. For branding purposes (jerseys, training gear, flags, letterhead), the respective names of club sections in Irish or English such as ‘Emmet Óg’ or ‘Killoe Óg’ or ‘Killoe Ladies’ can be placed below the crest in Brushtip-C font.

Our modern club crest replaced the previous design from 1991 to 2012 (see below right). Today's crest was introduced in June 2012 after being gifted to the club by the Devaney family. It first appeared on Killoe jerseys during the Senior Football Championship in August 2012 and today appears on all Killoe jerseys, flags and club merchandise.
