At Clann na nGael GAA, community is at the heart of our club. Everything we do helps to enrich the communities we serve. As a voluntary led organisation, it is our aim to continuously fill that role for our members with the help of you and any funding that we receive.
Fundraising empowers our team and offers a sense of unity. It gives us that common goal to get behind, a single milestone that we can reach as a group, as a community, as a team. We are dedicated to ensuring that our family of games, and the values we live, enrich the lives of our members, families, and the community we live in.
Our goal is to encourage all members of the community to participate in GAA related activities regardless of their background.To reward commitment and participation at all ages and provide encouragement and involvement to players of all abilities,whilst ensuring a safe and protective environment for children.
The GAA’s values are the heart and soul of our club. In every club around the world they are what connects us, what makes us unique and what attracts more and more players, members, volunteers and supporters.
