Eoghan Rua have fielded adult camogie teams since the early 2000s.

The breakthrough was in 2005 when after a dramatic draw, the girls cam back from a 12 point deficit to claim thei maiden Championship success thanks to a last minute goal by substitute Judith Kelly.

A further Intermediate Championship followed in 2007 and thereafter the Club competed at senior level in Derry. Wins in the Ulster Premier Shield in 2008 and the Ulster Premier League Cup in 2009 provided a platform for further success.

In 2010 the camogie team won the Derry Premier Championship, defeating Ballinderry Shamrocks 2-15 to 0-5 in Ballerin. Following a victory over Eglish in the Ulster semi-final, they won the Ulster Senior B Championship beating Clonduff in the Final.
