Dollingstown Football Club is an intermediate-level football club, from Dollingstown, County Armagh, Northern Ireland, who compete in the NIFL Premier Intermediate League. In the 2010–11 season the club was denied promotion to IFA Championship 2 for fielding an ineligible player in eight league matches. As a result, they were deducted all the points they gained in the matches the player took part in, and finished in 4th place instead of 1st. The club appealed the decision, and took their case all the way to the High Court, but it was dismissed. Had they won their case they would have been promoted, with Chimney Corner being relegated. Tandragee Rovers were crowned champions of the division instead, but did not apply for entry to the Championship. In the 2012–13 season, they narrowly missed out on a place in Championship 2 again. After winning the league title, they faced Northern Amateur Football League champions Newington in a two-legged play-off for promotion, and lost the tie on the away goals rule after it finished 4–4 on aggregate. A 3–2 home win followed by a 2–1 away defeat was not enough, and Newington were promoted at Dollingstown's expense. In the 2013–14 season, the club finally secured promotion to the NIFL Championship after winning a play-off against Brantwood. After losing the first leg 2–1 at Skegoneill Avenue, Dollingstown won the second leg 5–2 at Planters Park to ensure a 6–4 victory on aggregate. As a result, they were promoted to NIFL Championship 2 in place of Killymoon Rangers, who had finished bottom of Championship 2. They became the first club relegated from Championship 2 since its inauguration in 2009. In 2016 the club was relegated from the Northern Ireland Football League but as of 2017-18 season were promoted back into the league after winning Intermediate A at a canter.
