Our story

2021 marked the 130-year anniversary of the first recorded account of Gaelic games in Wellington. Ever since the first Irish person arrived on these shores, Gaelic games weren’t far behind. Here in Wellington, the earliest recorded mention of the ancient sport of hurling dates back to a New Year’s Day game in 1891. 130 years on, we’re still playing Gaelic games in the world’s southernmost capital city.
