The Shannon Gaels Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) Club was founded in April 2002 in Queens, New York. The club is fittingly named after the Shannon River that flows through the four provinces of Ireland and represents the many Gaels that now reside in Queens, New York. Shannon Gaels is the only underage GAA club serving the children of Queens at all levels, the Shannon Gaels provide the youth of our community an invaluable opportunity to develop their athletic skills while learning the values of teamwork and sportsmanship. Shannon Gaels GAA Club after just 12 short years is probably the fastest growing juvenile club in North America.
Shannon Gaels currently have teams of boys and girls spanning the under 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 age groups in Gaelic football, hurling and camogie. We also have a very active under 6 beginners program. Shannon Gaels also have a very active cultural program and recently had over 56 youngsters compete in North America’s first ever Scor Na nOg, held this past February.
