Etter, grandson of Jim McGuinness, one of the founding members of the New Haven
Gaelic Football & Hurling Club is a founder in his own right. After
discovering the beauty of Gaelic Football at the New Haven
club, he helped introduce it to students at Boston College.
Last year members of the Club planned to host them at their Venice Place club, but it was canceled
due to the tragedy at the Boston Marathon. They are happy to announce
that Kellan and his classmates are coming down to the New Haven Gaelic Football
& Hurling Club on Sunday, September 15th to participate in a 7-aside tournament.
tournament will be from 1:00 – 6:00pm on Sunday, September 15th. In
addition to Boston College, there is a team coming up from Fairfield, and a team from New Haven. While New Haven has a long history of playing
Gaelic Football, it has been a few years since they have organized an adult
team. Many of the players who played 10-15 years ago are back playing,
alongside some of the younger players who have come up through the ranks of the
Youth Football program.
This will be an exciting day of Gaelic Football and all are welcomed to the New Haven Gaelic Football & Hurling Club, 9 Venice Place in East Haven.
