#295 Shannon Gaels putting down solid roots in Queens

In GaelicSportsCast continuing series profiling GAA clubs in the New York region, we look today at a young club from Queens, the Shannon Gaels.

The ‘Gaels club was founded back in the early part of the last decade as one of a new breed of young juvenile Gaelic football clubs in New York City.

The club after humble beginnings has put down solid Gaelic sporting roots in the Woodside, Sunnyside and Maspeth areas of Queens and today participates in the NY GAA Minor Board’s, Spring and Fall Leagues at U8 – U 14 grades. Shannon Gaels also compete in local tournaments and at the annual American Continental Youth Championships (CYC).

Primarily focusing on Gaelic football, the club recently introduced hurling to young players, while at the same time adults started another exciting adventure when forming a Junior hurling team this summer.

Here to talk about the early years, the day-to-day running of the club, and its hopes for the future is PRO, Richard Corridan.
