Founded in 1992, Ardee & District Athletics Club has a long and proud track record of in both competition and in giving youngsters and adults the platform to engage in sport for recreational or competitive purposes.
The athletics club has actually existed in three different eras throughout the years and it was first known Ferdia Athletics Club as far back as the 1950s and 1960s.
During that time, the club boasted members that excelled in local and national competition including Sean Callan who won Louth, Leinster and All-Ireland cross country titles during his time in the club.
Despite the club ceasing to exist in the early 1960s, athletics returned to Ardee in 1971 with the formation of Ardee De La Salle Athletics Club. Founded with the help of the De La Salle Brothers and local men such as Sean Colgan, Patsie Callan and Jimmy Bradley, it ran until 1986.
Finally, in 1992, Ferdia A.C was revived and the club has continued to run uninterrupted until the present day, changing it’s name to Ardee & District Athletics Club in 2002 to reflect the growth of it’s membership.
