Danesfort GAA Club was founded in 1922. Three years later, in 1925, the club was awarded its first  Junior Hurling title on grounds of an objection. The club proceeded immediately to the senior ranks, there being no intermediate championship at the time. In 1930 Danesfort were once again in the Junior Final when they defeated neighbours Crowraddie (Callan) by a narrow 3-2 to 2-3. However Crowraddie objected and a replay was ordered by Leinster Council, which Danesfort won by 6-2 to 3-3. Danesfort were immediately launched into the delayed 1931 Intermediate Championship and found themselves in the final beating Slieverue 4-6 to 4-1. in an outstanding game of hurling.
