History

The club was founded as Moy Phelim Roe GAC in 1908, within a year of the first recorded game of Gaelic football in the village. The Moy team took part in an East Tyrone league over the next three years, and resurfaced as Moy Tír na nÓg in 1913.

Tír na nÓg remained active thereafter, apart from 1970 when it amalgamated with the now-defunct Eoghan Ruadh GAC, Benburb, to form a Clonfeacle parish team.

Gaelic football

The Moy won the 1914 East Tyrone League final, but forfeited that title on appeal.
