GAA Scores is a podcast and website about Gaelic games.

History[edit]

GAA Scores was originally launched as a Twitter account by Conor Donnelly in January 2012, with updates from GAA teams in various countries. The debut match was a Dr McKenna Cup tie between Derry and UUJ at Celtic Park.[citation needed] The account received almost 1,000 followers on Twitter within the first week.[citation needed] Later that summer a website was founded with news and opinions on Gaelic games.[citation needed]

The podcast was launched in May 2013 with Conor Donnelly, Pearse Corcoran and Michael O'Connor hosting the first season.[citation needed] Fermanagh footballer Ryan McCluskey replaced O'Connor midway through the second season.[citation needed]

The show is released weekly through iTunes and SoundCloud.[citation needed]

Link up with Gaelic Life[edit]

On Thursday 12 February 2015, it was announced that GAA Scores would be linking up with Ulster-based newspaper, Gaelic Life, to bring further coverage of the clubs and county within the province for the rest of the season.[citation needed]
