2006 saw Danesfort delivered from the long 75year drought of success at adult level. By far the most in-form team in the Junior Football Championship, Danesfort beat Ballyragget  in the County final in May of that year. This was to pave the way the most important success of all, the long coveted and elusive Junior Hurling Championship. In the Northern decider it took two hours to separate Danesfort from Conahy Shamrocks. In the County Final, Danesfort, after a hard fought and breath taking battle, emerged victorious over Southern challengers Tullogher/Rosbercon. Danesfort people were overcome with emotion as the long exile in hurling limbo finally came to an end. But it didn’t end there! Danesfort now entered the Junior Hurling Club Championship winning the Leinster title over Knockbridge of Louth, defeating Kilworth of Cork in a most memorable All-Ireland semi final in Dan Fraher’s field and coasting home to an All-Ireland victory over Clooney Gaels of Antrim in Croke Park.
