Lismore Camogie Club fielded their first senior team in 1980 but did not win their first senior County title until 1985 followed by a series of County titles in the following years. In 2010, Lismore Camogie club won the County senior title for the first time in nine years and also created history in winning their first and Munsters first ever Munster Intermediate Club title when they beat Newmarket on Fergus in Buttevant on October 30th 2010, and went on to represent the County in the All Ireland series but were unfortunate to be beaten in the semi-final stage by Eoghan Rua of Derry. They once again represented Waterford in the 2011 Club Championship and overcame Tipperary's Clonulty in Bansha and were subsequently beaten in the All Ireland semi-final against Galways Ardrahan.
Lismore Camogie Team met St. Annes in the County Final in 2012, where St. Annes came out on top denying Lismore of a three in a row. The 2013 season kicked off with the teams first training session on St. Patricks weekend. This year the team won both league and championship titles continuing to win the Munster Final drawing against Newmarket-on-Fergus at full time and again after extra time and winning against them by a two point margin on the second day. The girls went on to play Ulster Champions Liatrom Fontenoys in the All Ireland semi-final where the Lismore girls overcame them with a six point margin earning them a place in The All Ireland final in Croke Park on the first weekend of March. The girls played Kilkennys Ballyhale Shamrocks, like the Munster final, the girls drew the game and were to play the replay on Patricks weekend of 2014 in Clonmel. History was created for the club this year where CaithrionaMcGlone was the hat trick hero as Lismore lifted the AIB All-Ireland intermediate club camogie title in fine style in ClonmelSportsfields on this historic Sunday afternoon.
In 2014 Lismore were beaten in the League by eastern Rivals St.Annes by the minimum, but it was Lismore who beat St.Anne’s by the minimum in The Championship final. It was Munster Championship bound for the Cathedral town where the girls met Tipperary’s Borrisoleigh in a pulsating game in the Munster Semi-Final where Lismore came out of a tough battle to earn them a place in the final. Cork’s Sarsfields were their opponents on the day where Lismore overcame them with ease to win the Munster title for the fourth time.
Oranmore/Maree of Galway were the girls opponents in the All Ireland Semi-final in February and were once again victorious on this occasion earning them a place in the All Ireland Final in Croke Park for a second year in a row. Unfortunately luck was not on the girl’s side this time as Kilkenny’s Piltown who were their opponents who came out on top by a one point victory.
The 2015 season kicked off for the girls capturing the County League title in Tallow against neighbours Cappoquin in May. The girls beat Gall Tir in the first round of the championship in June and drew with St. Annes in the second round in July and beat Cappoquin in the third round later in the month earning them a place in the County final once more against arch rivals St.Anne’s on October 3rd in Faher field where they overcame St. Anne's by a 5 point victory to earn them a place in the Munster Final for the 5th year.
