Dundalk Football Club is a professional association football club in Dundalk, Ireland. Dundalk compete in the League of Ireland Premier Division, the top tier of Irish football, and are the League Champions and League of Ireland Cup holders, having won both in 2019. Founded in 1903 as the works-team of the Great Northern Railway company, they played in junior competition until they joined the Leinster Senior League in 1922. After playing four seasons at that level, they were elected to the Free State League, which later became the League of Ireland, in 1926.
They became the first club outside of Dublin to win a league title in 1932–33, and have won at least one league title or FAI Cup in every decade since. They are now the second most successful club in the League's history, and the most successful in the Premier Division era. They have played at Oriel Park since they moved from their original home at the Athletic Grounds in the town centre in 1936. The team has played in white shirts since 1928, and adopted the present colours of white shirts, with black shorts and trim, in 1940. The club's crest was also adopted in 1928 and is based on the town's old Corporation Arms.
