Information:
From humble beginnings St. Michaelís A.F.C. have risen to become one of the top clubs in Ireland at junior level.
There had been various teams in Tipperary Town since the early 1900ís including the famous ďWanderersĒ who beat Shamrock Rovers in the Irish Free State cup only to be beaten in a replay after an objection by Rovers had been upheld. Tipperary United followed and won many honours up to wartime.
St Michaelís were founded in 1947 when a group of interested people received a letter from Limerick requesting a match and to meet the challenge the club as we know it today was born.
The clubs very first honour arrived soon after in the shape of the North Munster league in 1948/49.
Many people have been involved throught the years and are readily brought to mind on an occasion such as today. It is noticeable the amount of players who have come through the schoolboy ranks and for this Saints are indebted to the years of dedication put in by Schoolboy Club.
Up until 1985 St. Michaelís home pitch was the showgrounds at the rear of St.Michaelís Church and it was with this famous pitch as a base that the club first achieved fame on the National stage by winning firstly the Munster Junior Cup in 1973 and famously the F.A.I Junior cup in 1974 and for almost thirty years held the distinction of being the last club outside of Dublin to have won it.
In 1985 the club moved the short distance to itís present location Cooke Park which is held on a 99 year lease. This was done to facilitate the building of the nationally renowned Canon Hayes Recreation Centre whose running track and playing pitch now occupies the site of the old St Michaelís pitch.
Cooke Park since then has become one of the best pitches in Ireland and has hosted F.A.I. Junior Cup finals, Munster Junior Cup Finals, F.A.I. youth Cup finals, Munster Youth Cup finals, EUFA European U16 championship international, Lawyers World Cup and many local T.S. & D.L. finals.
To date the Club have won every honour available to it at local provincial and national level. These honours include the FA.I. Junior cup, the Munster Junior cup, the F.A.I. Youths cup, M.F.A. Youth cup, the Tipperary League and Cup at Junior and Youth level, the AOH Cup and the Cork AUL league.
In addition several St. Michaelís players have represented Ireland at international level, Marty Hogan, Michael Grace, Davy Ryan, James Walsh, Paul Tobin, Aaron Moroney, Kelvin Flanagan, Kevin OíSullivan, Paul Breen, Chris Higgins and Jimmy Carr. Ex player Shane Long is currently starring with Hull City in the Premier League. On the administrative side former Chairman and Treasurer Tom Lewis has gone on to be chairman of the F.A.I. Junior Council and former player and Honorary Life President John Delaney is currently C.E.O of the Football Association of Ireland.
