Ok so slightly unfit 30 year old with very little experience of football wants to give it a go. Looking for noting too serious to start obviously, a good group of welcoming lads with a good social scene also would be good.

These seem to be the clubs closest to me

Balinter St Johns Balinteer
Kilmacud Crokes Stillorgan
Naomh Olaf GAA Sandyford
Ballyboden St. Endas

Any recommendation what level to start at?
And which of these clubs would be more suitable for me?

thanks


Geraldines GAA Club play in Cornelscourt in the field beside Dunnes. Small club and a small team so would be good club to start.

The Irish Sports and Social club (ISSC) is the only GAA club in Vancouver, British Columbia. Founded in 1974 we have been flying the flag for the GAA here ever since. As a member of the Canadian County Board we are part of the Western Canadian Division that also includes clubs from neighbouring Alberta. The ISSC is also closely involved in all Irish related social and cultural events that take place in Vancouver.

We play men’s and ladies’ football as well as men’s hurling. Currently we are the holders of both the Men's and Ladies Western Canadian Championships in Gaelic Football.. The hurling team travelled to Chicago in September 2010 to compete in the North American County Board (NACB) Championships at Junior A grade. Vancouver defeated San Francisco Naomh Padraig in the final by four points to become the first Canadian Hurling team to win an NACB Hurling title since 1978.

The season runs from March to September with 2-3 training sessions a week for all teams, the mens Celts and Harps, Joseph P Ryans hurling team and the ladies football teams (Celts, Shamrocks and Harps). The club is now registering members for the 2011 season. Teams play in a number of competitions in Vancouver, Alberta, Seattle and the NACB Championships in San Francisco over Labour weekend (Sep 2nd to 4th).

If you are currently in Vancouver or plan to arrive later this year please e-mail info@isscvancouver.com for additional information. Include the following details:

● Dates of when you arrived or will be arriving in Vancouver
● How long you’ll be in Vancouver
● Which sport(s) you’re interested in playing

We provide direction and help on how to proceed with a transfer/sanction from your GAA club back in Ireland to so you are eligible to play with us in Vancouver.. As there is a limit to the number of transfers/sanctions a club can do in a year please contact us ASAP. Hurlers should have their own hurleys and a helmet where possible as we have limited supplies.

We cater for all skill levels and also host many social events in and around Vancouver as a club so everyone is welcome - even Canadians! Many of our most active members and best players are people who were not traditionally associated with the GAA back home. We also give advice to new members who have recently moved to the Vancouver.

Hi,
Does anyone know anything about handball in Galway? I've been told Pearse Stadium has an alley but can't find mention of it anywhere on the web. I'll be able to get down there next week but wondering if anyone has any info in the meantime?

In response to the two guys above looking to get back into the game, Réalt Dearg sounds like a good fit if you would play on the southside? We were founded in 2010 by a group of lads who saw the need for a hurling club in Dublin south. We will be training primarily in Bushy Park, Terenure or in Ringsend Park once the clocks go forward. At the moment we are training twice a week in the Thomas Davis Astro pitch in Tallaght and at the weekend in Bushy or Ringsend.

We have all levels of hurlers involved in the club, from beginners to those who previously hurled at a higher standard but for work reasons or whatever have been out of the game for a while or can't make it back down the country for training. We have two adult teams, one in Junior E and one in Junior F, you have to start at the bottom and work your way up! All new players are more than welcome, check out www.realtdearg.ie for details and call or text one of the lads on the committee to find out training times as they can change.

Just to bump this thread back up. Réalt Dearg were narrowly defeated yesterday in their Leinster League debut. In one of the best performances I've seen from the Stars they were only beaten by a point by Edenderry, a team in Junior A in Offaly. Not bad for a team in Junior E and F!

We are looking to get more people involved as players but most importantly as selectors/managers to relieve the pressure from the players who, so far, have had to pick the team as well as playing. For anyone out there that would like to join us don't worry about your level, we have everything from beginners to lads who've hurled minor and more for county teams and everything in between! We really need some more players to ensure we have enough to continue with two teams for the year. Also anyone who would like to try out management would be more than welcome. Please visit www.realtdearg.ie and call/text/email one of the lads on the committee if you would like to know more.

Kilmacud Crokes is fielding two ladies teams this Summer, and there's plenty of room for new, enthusiastic players.

The girls came very close to silverwear last year, and are determined 2011 will be a breakthrough year.

Training on Monday and Wednesday at Glenalbyn, Stillorgan.

All the contact details are here http://www.kilmacudcrokes-ladies.com/

Hi all,
We are 4-5 lads in Dublin but playing competitive football with our home club. We need a club to train with midweek for a few months instead of driving home and back again! Any suggestions/contacts?

Does anybody know if the training for non-Dub players still takes place anywhere in Dublin?
