Bohermeen Athletic Club was founded in 1927 and the club has twice re-formed in 1954 and in 1969.
Since 1969, club members have been consistently active in cross-country, road, and track and field events at local, regional and national level.
During that time, a number of athletes have also been involved in international competition. The club's first international athlete was Pat Coyle, national cross-country champion in 1927 and 1928, who represented Ireland in international cross-country events in Wales and Scotland. The club's most recent Irish internationals are Alan Monahan, Kevin McGrath and Rose Finnegan who competed at the SIAB Schools' International Cross-Country
Bohermeen AC now has a membership of close to 200, with training facilities at Bohermeen Community Centre. The club has two 400m Tartan track lanes and a clubhouse.
