The University Of Liverpool GAA club was formed in 2008. The club started with both Men’s and Ladies Gaelic Football teams, and in 2009 the club introduced a Hurling team. The club also offers Camogie in the form of a joint team with Hope/John Moores Universities. This year we are sponsored by the Irish House in Liverpool.
Anyone is welcome to join the club, whether you've played before or not.
The Men's Gaelic team currently plays in the North West 1A BUCS league, which consists of the top teams from the North-West of England. Each Year the Men’s team has competed in the British Universities GAA Championship and in 2016 were Division 2 title winners.
The Ladies team takes part in the North West ladies league, which consists of the top teams from the North-West of England. The ladies team currently competes in the British Universities GAA A Championship.
Both the Men’s and Ladies league starts in the first week of October and usually finish around Christmas while the championships take place over a few weekends in either February or March.
There are currently no British University’s GAA Hurling or Camogie leagues. But there is a championship for both Hurling and Camogie, which usually takes place over a weekend in November.
Apart from the leagues and championships there are many other competitions that our teams play in, for example 7’s competitions for Hurling, Camogie, Men’s & Ladies football, Railway cup, British University All Star Awards and the International Hurling/Camogie versus Shinty University’s game.
As well as taking part in these competitions we also have fundraiser nights and many nights out in Liverpool as a club. So whether you’re in it for the sport or just for the craic, give us a shout on our contact details and get involved.
