The club itself was founded in 1987 with the amalgamation of the three existing club teams Borris, Ballymurphy and Rathanna the three villages of the parish and since then has enjoyed great success in all grades of Gaelic football, hurling, camogie and Ladies’ Gaelic football.

Club secretary Margaret Byrne said……
“Mt Leinster Rangers GAA Club would like to sincerely thank the Carlow Association London for your kind donation to the club following our recent drive for sponsorship for the training of our senior hurlers to reach and hopefully compete in an All-Ireland senior club hurling final.”
