Cleveland GAA 2021 Updates

We are excited more than ever to announce we are back for 2021. It was a long hard year with the pandemic and we are looking forward to getting back onto the pitch while still being safe and healthy.

In 2020, we did not play a competitive schedule, but achieved the following:

  • Practiced 1x per week throughout summer at WSIA (Men’s/ Ladies)
  • Conducted inter city football scrimmages on 5 Saturday dates – well attended
  • Started a Hurling Club/ Team – that played several games and 1 tournament
    • Shout out to Damon Margida for leading the way with getting Cleveland Hurling on a path for growth
  • Attracted several new club members/ players this past summer
  • Conducted Youth Training Sessions (FB & Hurling)
  • Had successful fundraising with Squares for Football Games

A competitive season is ahead of us with the Men’s & Ladies Football, Hurling, and Youth program and we are excited to get this season kickstarted. We will be holding practices for Men’s & Ladies football and hurling for the month of March and April in preparation for our seasons.
