Na Piarsaigh CLG, the first active hurling club in Toronto in over 25 years!
For many years, hurling in Toronto was strong, and the Toronto hurling championship was a hard fought affair. Back then, it included St. Michaels, Garryowen, Clan Na Gael, St. Vincent’s and Sean South’s. Such was the standard in the city that Toronto teams have brought back North American Senior Hurling championship trophies 3 times in 9 years in the 70’s.
Many of Toronto GAA’s greats hurled in the city in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, including Armagh’s Brian Farmer, Offaly natives Kevin Loughnane and Danny Kinahan, and Galway man Joe Carty.
The last sanctioned hurling competition held in Toronto was in the early 1980’s, and since then the game of hurling had basically vanished from the GAA scene in the city.
