The full list of Championship and League titles claimed by Bellaghy teams at all levels (football and camogie) is impressive and space is not available to do justice to them all however, Bellaghy has won 21 Derry Senior Football Championships, more than any other team. They have also won the Ulster Senior Club Football Championship title on 4 occasions. In 1972, the team won the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship (the first club team to bring the title across the border)
