Gaelic games have been played in New Zealand and Wellington since the first Irish emigrants stepped off the boats which first brought them here in the 1840s.
The game has ebbed and flowed on the strength of immigration trends from Ireland to NZ.
For instance one of our legendary teams of 1958, pictured above, was the direct result of mass immigration from Ireland in the 1950s.
Likewise in the 1980s and 1990s the game flourished in Wellington and we again became a force in the regional game across New Zealand and Australia.
What is most spectacular about the current resurgence of the game in Wellington is its origin in increased interest, from Kiwi men and women who have taken to the game and the accompanying social scene. This, we firmly believe, is where the future of Gaelic games in Wellington lies and this focus, accompanied by increasing success on the field, have set the club to enjoy a further century and a half of growth.....Long may it continue.
