In 1964 the club  decided to enter a senior team in the A U L League  for the first time,  as before that players who had played for St Josephs up to under 18 level  were passed on to other clubs in the area but many wanted to continue playing for the club ,so in order to keep the better players within the club a senior team was formed  after ten years in the A U L  leagues and reaching the Leinster Junior Cup Final in 1974 they moved to the Leinster Senior League  where they had great success  winning the L F A Junior Cup in 1978 and then moved up to intermedate grade in 1981
