#227 Exciting new GAA club in Liverpool

For generations, Irish emigrants have been attracted to the Merseyside city of Liverpool.
Many arrive in search of employment while others travel to further their education at the many excellent University facilities across the city.

The sport of soccer is synonymous with Liverpool but of late Gaelic football has started to take a hold in the University community with a growing number of players, both Irish and native, now enjoying the sport.

Two University of Liverpool students Sean McGoldrick and Chris Elliot having finished playing for the college, last year decided it was time to branch out and start a new GAA club in Liverpool and so was born the Liverpool Wolfe Tones.

It wasn’t easy at the start but today this second GAA club in the city is going from strength to strength and has already tasted success in the Lancashire Junior Championship and the Pennine League Division 2.

Here to tell us about this brand new club is co founder and chairman, Tyrone native, Chris Elliot.
