In the year 1913, those interested in the G.A.A. in Palatine got busy and formed a club. They got into their stride immediately and won the Junior Championship in 1914. In the same year a league was started between Junior teams, and as Palatine had won Junior Honours, they challenged the winning team, Rathvilly, and gave them a good beating. The ensuing four or five years they had to be content with defeats in the Senior ranks. In 1919 they again came into prominence and beat Grague-Cullen in the final. Again in 1920 they gained senior honours by their victory over Tinryland. After this a slacking off came inti their ranks and in 1923 their club ceased to exist.
