On Monday November 1st, 1886, a large group of Dunmanway Gaels assembled in the Market House (where the statue of Sam Maguire now stands) to form the Doheny Football and Hurling Club. The club was named after Michael Doheny, the young Irelander from Tipperary who while on the run, stayed for a short time in Dunmanway. The underage section, as well as the pitch are named after Sam Maguire. The famous Ardagh Chalice inspired the design of the Sam Maguire Cup, both cups have great similarity to one another. The Cup was first presented to the All-Ireland Football champions in 1928. Kildare was the first county to win the Sam Maguire Cup in 1928 after defeating Cavan 2-6 to 2-5. The original Cup was retired in 1987 as it had received some damage over the years. The GAA commissioned a replica from Kilkenny based silversmith Desmond A. Byrne and the replica is the trophy that has been used ever since. The original Sam Maguire Cup is permanently on display at the Croke Park Museum.
