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 – which 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 age levels and our club takes pride in providing the youth of our community with an invaluable opportunity to develop their athletic skills while learning the values of teamwork and sportsmanship. In its short history, Shannon Gaels GAA, has become one of the two largest juvenile clubs in the NY/tri-state area.n nShannon Gaels currently have teams of boys and girls spanning the Under 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 21 age groups in Gaelic football, hurling and camogie and we have a very active under 6 beginners program. Shannon Gaels also have a very active cultural program and had over 56 youngsters compete in North America’s first ever Scor Na nOg in 2015.n nWe play under the rules of the Gaelic Athletic Association (www.gaa.ie). The New York Minor Board (NYMB) manages the Gaelic underage events in the tri-state area. There are currently 15 juvenile clubs participating in the NYMB league.nnWe have spring and fall competitive leagues and many tournaments and blitzes during the year.
