MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

As we move into this Christmas season the Toronto Gaels would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our players, members and friends (near and far) a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With a number of our members this year taking the leap into married life, and others into parenthood; with the club claiming another Toronto GAA Intermediate Football League and Championship title; and with some members branching off to establish the Clann na nGael Hurling club, we count this as a very prosperous and successful year for the club.

Thank you to all of our members who contribute to making this a strong and vibrant club.

Here's to a prosperous year for all in 2017!
