Hartford Gaelic Football Club - The club has it’s origins as far back as 1914. Although there is little documentation between then and the 1950’s we do know our club were State champions in that year. With the mass exodus of immigrants to Connecticut in the 50” and 60” came an era in our History that will never be forgotten. Since then then our Club has enjoyed a National Championship Win and many State Championships through the 70’s and 80’s. Our club is based on the pride of the past and the promise of the future. It is our wholehearted commitment to promote Gaelic games in Connecticut.
