Gaelic Football Club - est. 1975

Ladies Football

Cropped-Womens-Team-1

Over two decades after it was first introduced to the city, Women’s Gaelic Football continues to thrive in the Canadian capital.  For Irish emigrants, the team offers a home away from home and for Canadians of Irish heritage, the opportunity to connect with the Irish community and culture. But regardless of your heritage – even if you have no connection to Ireland – this is a sport for all athletes looking for a new challenge that lets you easily transfer skills from soccer, volleyball, basketball or other team/field sports.

There’s a reason, however, why Gaelic Football is known as the “original beautiful game”. Combining the best parts of some of Canada’s favourite sports, the fast paced and dynamic game of Gaelic Football offers all players, regardless of background or experience, an exciting challenge and a welcoming community.

With weekly training, games against teams from Toronto and Montreal, tournament play and regular social events, this season is gearing up to be another successful year for the women’s team. Whether you are newly arrived from Ireland, looking to connect with your roots or seeking out a new challenge and a bit of ‘craic’, we are always looking to recruit new players of every experience and skill level.
