Thanks also to the Global Games Development Fund, the Department of Foreign Affairs Ireland, and the GAA for their support.

Here are some things to note for the 2021/22 season:

  • Scan in, maintain good hygiene practices, and stay home if you’re unwell.
  • To keep within the COVID-19 Alert Level 2 guidance, we have separated Ian Galloway Park into two distinct areas:
    ⁃ Area 1 – lower pitch and skills area
    ⁃ Area 2 – upper pitch “The Cage”
    Each participant must choose one area for the duration of the 90-min tournament,
    and not move between areas. Please continue to wear your mask until you reach your
    designated area.
  • If you have questions e.g. registration, payment etc., the info desk will be located by the dressing rooms.
  • Most importantly, go out there and have fun!

The 2021/22 social Gaelic football and hurling/camogie season will commence on Wednesday 10 November 2021.

Beginner sessions are pencilled in for the weeks beforehand on Wednesday 27 October and Wednesday 3 November. We’ll have more information on the format of the competition closer to the time.

Everyone is welcome! If you’ve never played Gaelic games before, this is a great time to start.

You’re right – Gaelic games are amazing. We’ll soon have a sign-up form available soon.

You can contact Player Development Officer Bryan ‘Badger’ Downes at for more information. Information, fixtures and results, for this season will be posted here on our website. You can also join the Wellington Social Gaelic Football group on Facebook for updates.

Cost is $60 per season. If you’ve paid full-year ($130) or half-year ($80) club membership* for 2021/22, then it’s all included. The money collected will go towards the running costs of the tournament including pitch hire, footballs, bibs etc.
