Great – because we host a social nine-a-side Gaelic football tournament in Wellington over the summer months. We also play some hurling/camogie. The games 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 is a great opportunity for beginners who are brand new to Gaelic football.
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.
