Gaelic football is a mishmash of AFL, rugby, soccer, basketball and netball all in one. Sports which hurling/camogie resemble are field hockey and lacrosse. Sound like a bit of you?
Great – because we host a social Gaelic football and 'hurlogie' (hurling/camogie) tournament in Wellington over the summer months. These summer sports are fun, friendly and suitable for all levels of experience. Following the games, we like to enjoy a beer and a snag from the BBQ after game. It’s a great opportunity for people who are brand new to Gaelic games.
The 2022/23 social Gaelic football season starts on Wednesday 9 November 2022 at Ian Galloway Park. Beginner sessions will take place on Wednesday 26 October and Wednesday 2 November, also at Ian Galloway park. More information on these sessions is available here.
Everyone is welcome! If you’ve never played Gaelic games before, this is a great time to start.
