Toronto Gaels GFC
The Toronto Gaels Gaelic Football Club is based in Toronto, Canada, and is governed by the Toronto GAA, under the Canadian GAA county board, which falls under the Ulster GAA board of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) (Irish: Cumann Luthchleas Gael) which is responsible for Gaelic games in Ireland and internationally.
The Toronto Gaels GFC was established on March 17th, 1987. The club arose from the ashes of the old Garryowen club, with men such as Billy Millar, Billy Gilroy & Joe Matthews at the forefront. Other former Garryowen men, such as Tommy White, and Paddy Callan also played crucial roles in the establishment and growth of the Toronto Gaels in the early years.
The club managed to field competitive teams from day one. Success came early for the club, winning a couple of Championships in the late 80's and early 90's.
Membership has grown to the extent that Toronto Gaels GFC has become the largest men's GAA club in the city. Since 2011, as a result of this growth, the club has fielded an Intermediate team, in addition to the primary Senior level team, in Toronto GAA competitions. After a lull in silverware during the 00's, the club has found renewed success, winning a number of Senior League titles, and Intermediate Championship & League titles in recent years.
In 2016 Toronto Gaels assisted in founding a separately affiliated Hurling GAA club, named Toronto Clan na Gael (Irish: Clann na nGael].
