Fenor GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in the small east Waterford, Ireland village of Fenor. The club enters teams in both Gaelic football and hurling each year, both of which compete in their respective junior championships.

Fenor's greatest achievement was winning the Waterford Senior Football Championship in 1932. Fenor also collected countless junior hurling titles in 1990s and 2000s (decade) but they never gained promotion to intermediate status.

Fenor4Junior is Fenor GAA's version of "The American Dream". It was set up in 2010 to instil the belief that Fenor could go all the way in the Waterford Junior Hurling Championship for the first time in the club's history. However, a number of poor performances that year caused the dream to be shattered. In 2011, a large number of injuries, along with exams and retirements, meant Fenor made no impact on the championship. The belief has spread to many places near and far; Tramore CBS have numerous 'Fenor4Junior' Tipp-Ex markings in many classrooms and on many chairs. The common phrase can also be heard by a number of touists in Fenor's hinterland during the summer months.
