Cleveland GAA is open to all who want to play competitive sports, meet new people, and join an athletic, fitness-minded club for all ages. 

History of the Saints

Cleveland has a rich history of Gaelic sports. In 1948 St. Pat’s Gaelic Football Club was established. St. Pat’s would go on to win several national football championships at senior level in 1962, 1964-1966 and 1968.

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 securing the 2015 national title by St. Pat’s at the junior level, the two Cleveland clubs merged.

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, In 2021 Cleveland Saints Camogie was recreated.
