Cleveland St. Pat’s-St. Jarlath’s GAA

Welcome to the home of the Cleveland St. Pat’s – St. Jarlath’s Gaelic Athletic Association.  Cleveland has a rich history of Gaelic sports and in 1948 the St. Pat’s Club was established.  St. Pat’s would go on to win several national football championships at senior level in 1962, 1964-1966, and 1968. Years later in 1980, St. Jarlath’s formed to become a perpetual favorite within the Midwest and collect national titles at the junior level in 2005 and 2006.  After the 2015 national title by St. Pat’s at the junior level, the two Cleveland clubs rejoined.  The combination of resources has led to the resurrection of the Cleveland Ladies’ Football team,  the development of the men’s football program that teeters on two teams, and the continued growth of the youth program in both football and hurling.  In 2020, the club add hurling back to the association in Cleveland. 

The Club’s home ground is Páirc na Naomh (the Saints Field), Westside Irish American Club, 8559 Jennings Road, Olmsted Township, OH 44138.
