Michael Davitt born in nearby Straide, was a founding member of the GAA.
In January 1974 a group of footballers and supporters from the Straide, Foxford and Bohola areas held a meeting in the Old Bohola School, and it was decided at that meeting to form a Bohola club. The then Parish Priest Fr Martin McManus R.I.P. was installed as the first Chairman of the club, Joe McEvey the first secretary and Willie Malee the first treasurer.
In it’s first year the club won the Divisional Junior Title, and was promoted to Intermediate status for the coming 1975 season. In 1977 Bohola changed its name to Moy Davitts to represent the three parishes, along the banks of the Rover Moy, involved in the club.
In 1978 the club won the County Intermediate League and numerous other East Mayo titles at underage level followed. The club has gone from strength to strength in the intervening years and today Moy Davitts have over 200 players.
Moy Davitts club house and home grounds are located at Sraith Gharbh, Foxford. The club house was built in 1983 and extended in 2003 to include an assembly room. The grounds have seen significant developments in recent years, which include substantial car parking and a second pitch.
Moy Davitts were proud winners of RTE's Celebrity Bainisteoir in 2012, coached by Callum Best, son of famous football star George Best.
They defeated Scoil Ui Chonaill from Clontarf in a glorious final at Clontarf. Other titles in recent years include:
Feile Dhoire 2010 (under 14)
County u15 Champions (2011)
