History

The County board was created in 1960 when it was deemed that the number of clubs in the region north of London supported a separate league. The area is not in fact just Hertfordshire but encompasses Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire.

Present Day

Hertfordshire is probably among the weakest of the British counties as a result of the small number of large population centres in the region it serves.[ citation needed ] It has further been affected by the general trend of reduced emigration from Ireland to the UK since the 1980s. As a result, a number of the original clubs have folded – including the Milton Keynes-based team Erin Go Bragh in 2005. However, a resurgence may be under way. The youth sections of the county is very promising as in 2018 Hertfordshire u14's won the Feile Peile na nOg in Meath, following up the year after winning a shield competition in Connaught. In 2006 a new Cambridge-based team joined the league.
