Following the rapid population growth of Bishopstown throughout the 70s, the club continued to provide an outlet for young people with a vibrant underage section spearheaded by people like Eleanore Tuohy and Jim Ryng. Honours at adult level were hard to come by with the highlight being the under 21 side of 1987 which reached the county final. The senior footballers also made progress in the championship but didn't make to a final during the decade. However it was in the 80s that we saw the emergence of players such as Paul McGrath and Barry Coffey who starred with the Cork football All-Ireland winners in 1989 and 1990. The work done with the youth of the club was to bear fruit in the following decade and beyond when honours in both codes began to come to Bishopstown.
